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 bumbling and egotistical superhero battles evil in that fair city with the help of his dumb pilot sidekick, Launchpad McQuack and his rambunctious adopted daughter, Gosalyn. Written by

A few episodes of Darkwing Duck were banned. The most infamous was season 3's "Hot Spells" which only aired once on ABC. The plot line involved Gosalyn trying to gain magic powers like Morgana, and, in the process, selling Darkwing's soul to the devil. Another banned episode was "Aduckaphobia", which was believed to be banned because it parodied Spider-Man. 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.
