Everyone’s favorite feathered grandnephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie – are back, and they’re more precious than ever.

YouTube channel Oh My Disney recently recreated the intro to the classic cartoon DuckTales, this time subbing in real animals for the animated birds. The part of the grumpy Scrooge McDuck is portrayed by a stately, hat-doffing quacker, while a trio of adorable ducklings fills in for the cartoon grandnephews.

Aside from its casting choices, this refurbished intro doesn’t stray far from the original. Diehard DuckTales fans should be able to pick out the show’s catchy theme song, and the classic McDuck coin dive. See how this live action tribute to the high-flying adventures of DuckTales measures up by comparing it to the original intro below.
