Some of the worst I've ever seen.

Yeah, I agree.

I don't know why studios still choose to use DNR, they see the effects of it, right?

considering the time this was made wouldnt this be an issue dating back to when they made the original transfers for tape. this happened in a number of shows throughout the 90s

Actually, from the shows I've watched on Disney+, Ducktales is the only one that has really bad DVNR. Bonkers, Talespin, Darkwing Duck, Hercules TAS, Doug, Timon and Pumbaa and The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh seem to all be fine.

Episodes 1-75 of DuckTales were DVNR-ed when they were released to DVD in 2005-2007. That's why all modern-day releases of those episodes look so terrible. (The final 25 episodes don't have this problem, because they were only released to DVD through the Disney Movie Club in 2018.)

Oh... at least the last 1/4 of episodes aren't DVNR'd, but I do wish they all weren't.

Of course; none of them should have been DVNR-ed. The irony is that this was probably done because DuckTales is the most famous of Disney's older TV cartoons, so someone decided it would be best to "clean up" the picture when launching the show on DVD. Terrible decision.

Apparently Gummi Bears also had DVNR treatment. Is that the whole series?

Where did you hear that? I've watched the first few seasons of Gummi Bears ripped from DVD, and I didn't notice any DVNR there.

Then that's probably it; they're using upscales of the DVD transfers.

Is there any reason companies keep using this process for animated media?

They're not "upscales". DuckTales is presented in 480p on Disney+, as are all the other TV cartoons that haven't been restored in HD.
