Is the Disney TV and comic series Ducktales on topic?

My question here was closed due to being about anthromorphic animals.

However I strongly feel that Ducktales is far more than anthromorphic animals. It regularly includes demons, curses and ancient cities, and one of the main charicters, Magica De Spell, is a witch. Thus, it should be on topic here.

So, is Ducktales on topic?

    Not to mention the racecars, lasers, and aeroplanes. – fluffy Nov 16 '17 at 3:22

    Rewriting history is so passé. Can't we get some original sci-fi in here? – Machavity Nov 17 '17 at 20:00

    @fluffy I don't know how you remember all that. For me, looking back, it's a duck-blur. – Todd Wilcox Nov 17 '17 at 23:27

As base instinct I would say yes (having watched the show growing up... Let's just take a look at the theme song (I could have recited it for you, but you can't hear me through typing).

Things I see in the trailer include: knights, dragons, witches, mummies, robots, space travel...

All of this seems like it confirms my hunch of:

YES, Ducktales* is on-topic!

*This would include the 1987 and 2017 series

    @TheAsh I have already. I must admit I closed it too quickly (I would have originally gone with scientific "explanations", but your self-answer show it was answered in-universe). – Skooba Nov 14 '17 at 21:14

    @TheAsh Oh no... a reboot??? I will have to investigate! If it is anything like the other reboots I have been watching with my kids, it will be not to my expectations.... – Skooba Nov 14 '17 at 21:27

    Knights, mummies and robots make something SFF? That's funny since we have all of those in our past and present, hardly seems like something Science Fictional or Fantastical – Edlothiad Nov 16 '17 at 7:06

    @Edlothiad Fair enough. How about the ray guns, force fields, dragons, aliens, submarines and spaceships without protection from the water and vacuum, or coin tsunamis? – Nzall Nov 16 '17 at 12:33

    Sure, those are SFF-nal. I'm just saying, although this show has SFF-nal elements, yet the premise isn't really an SFF show, but maybe I'm wrong. I just think it should be treated how we treat shows with SFF-nal elements but aren't entirely based on SFF (note: anthro-animals are not considered Fantasy on this site.) and only allow questions based on the SFF-nal elements of the content. But if the community agrees with asking whatever then we'll ask whatever. – Edlothiad Nov 16 '17 at 12:35

    @Edlothiad It makes me wonder if familiar with fantasy tropes or not when you make comments like this. I wonder what your thoughts on Indiana Jones are..... – Skooba Nov 16 '17 at 13:07
  • Your comments make me wonder if familiar with any of our meta policies or discussions. Spaceships -/= sci-fi. Knights =/= Fantasy. Dragons, Rayguns, aliens is more like it. Either way, another user has mad it clear that there are SFF-nal elements in the show. – Edlothiad Nov 16 '17 at 13:11

    @Edlothiad It just show that you did not take in the full context of my answer and are trying to be combative on purpose. – Skooba Nov 16 '17 at 13:21

    No I'm trying to force consistency amongst our policies. But since you seem to be unfamiliar with them, that went unbeknownst to you – Edlothiad Nov 16 '17 at 13:25
