In the city of St. Canard, the people are plagued by the most bizarre criminals, but they have a protector as well, Darkwing Duck.

This show not only spoofs elements of the Batman films and comics and the Shadow, but the intelligence organization, SHUSH, also parodies Marvel Comics' SHIELD, a super spy organization that often requests the aid of superheroes, especially Captain America, on missions. Darkwing Duck's outfit was also influenced by the Scarlet Pimpernel. See more »

This was a wonderful show. It cashed in on the big "superheroes-battle-crime-in-dark-city" trend that included Batman and the Ninja Turtles and lampooned it brilliantly. I can still remember Darkwing's wonderfully over-the-top vocal delivery and the many colorful villains (just thinking about Quackerjack and his psychotic chattering teeth brings a smile to my face). I'd love to see a live-action movie based on this cartoon (a la "Inspector Gadget"), with the animals replaced by human actors, a Gothic-style Saint Canard, and the latest special effects.
