I love DuckTales since I was little from my grandparents's house and I brought the VHS recording on my TV and for now on, I'm feeling happy to bring it the DVD and I've got the DVD. Right in the store of WalMart. Because, I love it. :) I guess it's good for me and I know what is it. I'm proud of DuckTales on TV with Disney. I guess it's amazing. That's how it goes for myself. I hope it's nice for me. Well, I'm going to be a Disney fan for myself. Thank you so very much. All right!
