Reunion of villains
7 June 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

'Darkwing Duck' has always been a show dear to my heart. One of those favourites from a young age that holds up really well, and is even more entertaining through adult eyes from appreciating the writing and stories even more.

Have been on a roll reviewing individual episodes for certain shows, animated, non-animated and of as many genres as possible (many as part of certain quests), and decided to do it with 'Darkwing Duck' and some others. Something that, as expected and hoped, has proven to be a more than worthwhile project and experience. "Jail Bird" is one of the best episodes, with more than enough to show what is so great about the show.

Gossalyn's absence is noticeable and felt somewhat.

Negaduck though is one of my favourite 'Darkwing Duck' villains and characters, and he creates fun and thrilling conflict. Loved the involvement of the other favourite 'Darkwing Duck' villains Megavolt, Liquidator and Quackerjack and Bushroot is growing on me all the time. It doesn't feel though like that there were too many villains.

The animation is very colourful and atmospheric as always however. The music matches what is going on perfectly while it is impossible to forget one of the catchiest theme songs in animation.

Writing is witty, very funny without being too silly and thought-probing without being complicated. Things don't get too childish and it is all easy to follow. The story is compelling enough and lively in pace without being rushed, and executes a nice idea imaginatively without being too silly. Darkwing is an immensely likeable and fun title character and Launchpad never fails to bring a smile to my face.

Jim Cummings fits Darkwing like a glove, it is always lovely to hear him in non-villain roles when he excels just as well in them. Terence McGovern is note-perfect for Launchpad. Cummings once again shows off his villain voicing expertise and Dan Castellaneta, Jack Angel, Michael Bell and Tino Insara are similarly terrific.

Overall, very enjoyable. 9/10 Bethany Cox
