Episode cast overview:
... Megavolt (voice)
... Gosalyn Waddlemeyer-Mallard (voice)
... Drake Mallard / Darkwing Duck (voice)
... Honker Muddlefoot (voice)
... Launchpad McQuack (voice) (as Terry McGovern)


When Darkwing Duck faces off against the electrically-charged and insane Megavolt, he is subjected to the blinding flash of supercharged light bulbs, leaving him unable to see. Dismissing Gosalyn's suggestions of setting the hero business aside, Darkwing tries many different methods of overcoming his new handicap, from a radio link with Launchpad to a thermo-audio sensor. However, nothing works, and he soon gives up on crime fighting, as well as life in general. Eventually, it's up to Gosalyn, Launchpad and Honker to try and re-inspire Darking to tackle Megavolt one last time. Even if they succeed, can he hope to defeat the villain while still blind?

Darkwing struck blind
25 April 2018 | by See 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. "Duck Blind" is among the better episodes for me.

It introduces one of my favourite 'Darkwing Duck' villains Megavolt for the reasons that he is so entertaining and wonderfully insane. Dan Castellaneta (best known for Homer Simpson in 'The Simpsons') does a fine job with his voice.

The animation is very colourful and atmospheric as always. 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 and lively in pace without being rushed. Darkwing is an immensely likeable and fun title character and Launchpad never fails to bring a smile to my face. Gossalyn adds a lot of spunk and really spices things up even more, she is not a brat neither is she too overly-cute.

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. Christine Cavanaugh is a major part of why Gossalyn works so well as a character, and Terence McGovern is note-perfect for Launchpad.

All in all, terrific. 9/10 Bethany Cox
