In what could be termed as good news for 1990s kids, Disney Channel India is finally launching the reboot of DuckTales on October 1. It is said that the series will reach out to the next generation and set an example for them to be confident, curious, independent and innovative.
And adding punch to its relaunch is singer Shaan and his 13-year-old son who has crooned the recreated title track of the blockbuster cartoon series.
The song in Hindi was released on the official social media handles of Disney India.

Shaan said in a statement, “I am a huge fan of the original series and really happy that a new generation of kids, including my son, will have the opportunity to grow up with ‘DuckTales’. The title sequence absolutely complements the sense of adventure and excitement of the show and it was fun recording the Hindi version; especially because I could share the experience with my son Shubh.”
American animated television series DuckTales was produced by Walt Disney Television Animation and first aired on television in September 1987. It went on to be dubbed in multiple languages across the world. In India, it was telecast on Doordarshan in Hindi, back in the 90s. Its title track was originally sung by Chetan Shasital.
Earlier, Devika Prabhu, Executive Director, and Head-Product, Media Networks, Disney India had said, “DuckTales holds a very special place in Disney’s storytelling history, especially in India. The new series brings the same energy and adventurous spirit for a whole new generation of young fans.”
Ducktales will be telecast every Monday at 6 PM.
