Storyline

In the city of St. Canard, the people are plagued by the most bizarre criminals, but they have a protector as well, Darkwing Duck (Jim Cummings). This bumbling and egotistical superhero battles evil in that fair city with the help of his dumb pilot sidekick, Launchpad McQuack (Terence McGovern) and his rambunctious adopted daughter, Gosalyn Waddlemeyer (Christine Cavanaugh). Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Alternate Versions

The home video release of the two-part pilot, "Darkly Dawns the Duck", restores a number of cuts that were made to the episodes in reruns:
  • An opening chase sequence showing Darkwing capturing a gang of fleeing criminals (oddly enough, the scene of Darkwing ramping the Ratcatcher up and into the bed of a pickup truck, catapulting the criminals inside into some trashcans, is featured prominently in the show's opening sequence).
  • While following Tantalus on the Ratcatcher, Darkwing almost has a head-on collision with a large truck and is yelled at by the driver.
  • A longer version of the scene where Hoof and Mouth are twirling their rifles around before Darkwing jumps them.
  • A scene showing Taurus Bulba wheeling a cart of dirty clothes to the prison laundromat, establishing that Hammerhead, Hoof and Mouth are hiding inside it.
  • Following the car chase, Mouth has a panic attack and begins screaming, "We're all gonna die! We're all gonna die!" until Hammerhead hits him.
  • A longer scene of Taurus Bulba ranting about Darkwing's ego, with him imitating Darkwing's mannerisms and poses: "His posing, his flamboyance, the mask and cape! Ha, ha! That hat! It all indicates an ego the size of a small planet!"
  • While in his jail cell, the scene where Darkwing tries to get the biker pig to punch him is much longer.
  • A brief scene where Taurus Bulba comments that the design of the Thunderquack is ugly.

Fully as it was quacked up to be!
22 March 2002 | by uds3See all my reviews

Hey, what would life have been a decade ago without DARKWING DUCK?

I actually bought a video years back for my (then) young kids who were transfixed by the deeds of Mr Darkwing. Obviously lifted from the BATMAN concept and with nefarious villains around to allow DARKWING DUCK to win out ultimately, bringing with each victory some social lesson to be learned, each episode was a feathered triumph to savor. As his inimitable "Bruce Wayne" alter ego Drake Mallard, Darkwing would defend to the death the honor of the least threatened creature while reminding us of many of life's little obligations.

Multi-layered animation for the aware.
