When someone rounds up the best chiptunes all the time, Moon Theme from Capcom 1989 makes classic DuckTales usually the top 10. Well, 30 years later Disney has given the lyrics and added it to Ducktales canon.
So here you go. It is now official, “Della Moon Lullaby.” Huey, Dewey and Louie’s mother sings it to one, erm, baby to sleep and prove that even cruel spider-like monster babies (technically this is a lunar mite) can also be delightful.
Paget Brewster delivers the song as Della’s voice. The song was written by Jake Kaufman, Mark Mueller and John Smith, per Disney. The scene is from the last section, “What happened to Della Duck?” Who fled the Disney Channel yesterday. In this show, the Della crash on the moon and is in the mite’s mom, helping her get to the next stage of the journey.
If you need a refreshment on the months, here is the original melody.
DuckTales was launched on September 14, 1989, at the apogee of the Disney afternoon show’s popularity. It returned in 2013 with DuckTales Remastered . The TV program started in 2017, the 30th anniversary of the original’s premiere. So here’s this nice flash-and-no-timing for the generation that grew up with loving both shows and games.
