Disney’s in the business of not only creating memories, but combining them into libraries which can be purchased to relive your youth over and over. The company that used to have preference for the vault – a mythical place where Disney content was locked away for years at a time – has slowly released many films and shows on iTunes to purchase and watch freely. Even some of the more obscure ones.
The newest addition is three afternoon cartoons – DuckTales, Rescue Rangers, and TaleSpin. They’ve all been branded for Disney XD. Many fans have already noted that some of the previously unavailable episodes on the DVD releases are now available on iTunes.
A few people have also noted the absence of other series like Darkwing Duck and Gargoyles. But the artist for the Darkwing Duck comics, James Silvani makes a great point:
You can’t just “wish” they would release Darkwing digitally. Buy what Disney Afternoon content is available to prove how much you want it
