Mighty Ducks - The Animated Series
No show magically becomes a hit. Forget the fact that
it's a Disney production, forget all of the marketing spin,
forget all of the focus groups and corporate hype. A
production that withstands the test of time does so with the
investment of hard work from a dedicated set of cast and
crew, from writing to voice acting, production to direction.
This page stands in honor of that work. Read up and
