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 "Darkwing Duck: Hot Spells (1992)" 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 "Darkwing Duck: Aduckyphobia (1991)", which was believed to be banned because it parodied Spider-Man. See more »
I wouldn't have been surprised if Paul Verhoeven or Tim Burton directed one or two of the episodes of this show! I can't believe Disney let it through, of all studios!! This is real biting stuff, and it's twisted, demented and weird. I loved it. It was my favourite Saturday morning cartoon and my pick as the best of Disney's animated series'. This was a show like "The Simpsons", where every scene was a rip-off of something. And yet it existed in its own imaginative world, not so over-the-top that it doesn't make some kind-of sense. Darkwing's enormous ego is the best rip-off of superheroes I have ever encountered. And those villains!!!! Batman would have stopped to say: Nice powers. As far as TV goes, especially animated TV, this is among the best of it, I think!
