TheFineBros recently presented late '80s cartoon masterpiece DuckTales to a group of unsullied youngsters. Their reactions justify every half-hour I spent in front of the television with Scrooge McDuck and company.
These aren't slow children, either. They completely get that diving into a vat of gold coins would totally kill you, even if one suggests molten gold as an alternative, and another says she'd rather swim in a vault filled with puppies. I'm trying not to imagine the lower layer of animals (pulpies) in that equation.
Eleven of thirteen kids say they'd watch the show if they re-aired it today. Forget that. Give us new episodes, and the entire internet would tune in, at least for the first couple of episodes. Then it would get bored and wander off. It is the internet, after all.
