The DuckTales Theme Song Gets Transformed Into an R&B Slow Jam

The DuckTales theme song gets a groovy reimagining by the Postmodern Jukebox crew.

Still from YouTube

The folks over at Postmodern Jukebox have a knack for reimagining old standards in new ways, but their latest cover is especially delightful: a rendition of the DuckTales theme song, spiced up with some masterful vocals and a sensual, slowed-down backing band.

The cover is part of the group's Saturday Morning Slow Jam series, which takes old-school cartoon songs and infuses them with '90s R&B. And if their take on DuckTales isn’t enough for your daily nostalgia fix, check out their version of the Pokemon theme.
