Scarpa's Offer, They COULD Refuse.
I've received some clarification from the individual who originally posted on YouTube the Romano Scarpa DuckTales clip that I posted a few days ago. Evidently, the 1988 date is somewhat misleading; this piece was produced BEFORE production on the original series got fully underway. Scarpa and whatever outfit he was working for/with were trying to convince Walt Disney TV Animation to hire them to make episodes. The studios in Japan and Korea had the inside track, though... no big surprise.
