After debuting with an hour-long episode in August, the new DuckTales series returns to Disney XD on Saturday, September 23 with two new episodes.

To celebrate the official start of the reboot, we’ve rounded up a few fun clips from both the original series and the new one. Take a trip down memory lane with Scrooge, Donald, Huey, Dewey, Louie, and more and get ready for all-new “DuckTales” adventures.

First off: the theme song. The updated version is delightful, but the original song will never go out of style.
