Gizmoduck was a big part of the original DuckTales so it makes sense that Fenton will once again play a strong role in the reboot. While we have already met Fenton and his alter ego, the technology powered Gizmoduck, we still haven’t seen his full role explained. In DUCKTALES – “Who is Gizmoduck?!” Mark Beaks is going to look to hire Gizmoduck as the hero to all of Duckburg.
And while we have already seen the new Fenton, this episode is going to introduce us to the new Mrs. Crackshell (aka M’Ma Crackshell) and how she has changed. Gone are the curlers and bathrobe and in their place we have a badge and nice clothes. We will assume that she still has the same love for her boy Fenton though. It will be interesting how their relationship will be when/if Gizmoduck goes all hero mode, while she has to make sure he is following the law.
DUCKTALES – “Who is Gizmoduck?!” – As Fenton figures out how to be a hero, Mark Beaks offers to hire Gizmoduck and help him defend all of Duckburg. This episode of “Ducktales” airs Saturday, July 14 (9:30 – 10:00 A.M. EDT) on Disney Channel.
This is just the start of Fenton coming into his own with the Gizmoduck suit, but with Gyro being a little bit of a different character than the original inventor will this be a problem between the two of them? We have already seen the way that Gyro has been treating Fenton in this series, and it has not been all that good. Also with Mark Beaks involved, we know he is either using Gizmoduck to further his social media presence or to stick it to Scrooge, it may even be both.
