One of the inevitabilities of our favorite frustrated fowl is that they would have to become more individualized when adapted into more storybook formats. Still, I can't help but be disappointed.

Red, Bomb and the Blues are fine...descriptive and non-contradictory. But Matilda? Chuck? Terence?

Considering the birds were created in Scandinavia Finland (which is commonly mistaken for Scandinavia but isn't), I was hoping for Katya, Oystein and Fjurkkelbjerggenhooferloogin. I guess I was just a dreamer.

The new cartoon, featuring the new names, debuts March 17th, which is also St. Patrick's Day, and super appropriate, since it's a day when green gluttons behave the most badly. Video trailer after the jump.
