Disney has been teasing the enormous amount of content that will be on Disney Plus when it launches Nov. 12. What it hasn’t been telling us is exactly what that content will be. Now the streaming service has taken to its social accounts and begun hinting that some fan-favorite animated series may be included.
If you’re a child of the 1990s, no two words thrilled you more than “Disney Afternoon.” It was a stellar lineup of content that, so far, has been rather difficult to relive. There have been DVD releases here or there, and they have been released digitally if you pay for them. To date, however, they have not been available to stream on platforms like Netflix or Hulu.
Now Disney Plus is just being mean.
It started with a tweet about the perfect afternoon.
Us: OUR IDEAL AFTERNOON SCHEDULE IS
3:00 pm – DuckTales
3:30 pm – Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers
4:00 pm – TaleSpin
4:30 pm – Darkwing Duck pic.twitter.com/hpSIGD9bVQ

And this was followed up on Instagram.
If this to be believed, we will see DuckTales, Chip ‘N Dale: Rescue Rangers, TaleSpin, Darkwing Duck, Gargoyles, Goof Troop, and Adventures of the Gummi Bears all on the service.
All of this is great, but we’re going to be greedy and focus on Gargoyles, one of the most underappreciated Disney properties of all time. If it is truly coming to Disney Plus, hopefully, this will rejuvenate interest in the series and perhaps we could finally see something new come of it.
If these series are truly all coming to Disney Plus, it makes you also wonder what else may be in store for us. Could we possibly, finally, see Muppet Babies return in some form? There has been no home video release of that series, so we aren’t holding our breath, but we can hope.
Disney Plus is going to cost $6.99 a month, or $69 a year. Disney Afternoon alone is pretty much worth the admission price.
