Mighty Ducks - The Animated Series

Cast and Credits

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 respect...
