Like many other ’90s kids, I was essentially raised by the television. So rewatching certain shows can feel like reuniting with long lost friends. Growing up, I was on a steady diet of Alvin and the Chipmunks, Pee Wee, and DuckTales. (You can find proof of the latter all over my lunch box on my first day of school.)

I don’t think of Scrooge McDuck and his grand-nephews that much these days, but when I do it’s a deluge of childhood tastes, smells and feels smashing past poorly built flood gates. So imagine the emotions inspired by Postmodern Jukebox‘s cover and slow jam-ification of the DuckTales theme song. Let’s just say the first-day-of-school five-year-old inside me is pretty psyched.

And the original for old times’ sake:

What theme song from your childhood do you think deserves a slow jam?
