Darkwing DuckDarkwing Duck - The alter ego of Drake Mallard (voice of Jim Cummings) an average citizen who transformed himself into the "terror that flaps in the night." Wearing a crimefighting costume reminiscent of a 1940s style zoot suit with broad rimmed hat, double breasted suit, mask and cap, Darkwing Duck battled wrongdoers with the assistance of Launchpad McQuack, a goofy pilot; Gosalyn, Drake's nine-year-old daughter; and Honker Muddlefoot, her brainy buddy. Darkwing's catchphrase is "Let's get dangerous."

His enemies were the evil toy maker Quackerjack; Reginald Bushroot, the half-duck, half-plant; Negaduck, Darkwing's evil counterpart from another dimension, as well as the Liquidator, Megavolt, Steelbeak, Moliarity, Tuskernini, Ammonia Pine, Ample Grime, Splatterphoenix, Steerminator (Taurus Bulba).

Darkwing's heroes included such detective icons as Hercule Parrot, The Unpluckables, and Sherlock Homing Pigeon.

When not fighting crime in his hometown of St. Canard, Darkwing offers his assistance to the secret organization known as SHUSH who battle the bad guys at FOWL (Fiendish Organization of World Larceny).

Darkwing's arsenal of gadgets/weapons included a gas gun, an airplane called the Thunderquack and a motorcycle which DD calls the Ratcatcher.

The cartoon series DARKWING DUCK debuted on the Disney Channel (part of the Disney Afternoon on ABC, starting from April 6th,1991) and later in syndication. It ran 90 episodes.


"I am the winged scourge that pecks at your nightmares. I am... Darkwing Duck!"


Darkwing Duck Theme Song Lyrics

Daring duck of mystery,
Champion of right,
Swoops out of the shadows,
Darkwing owns the night.
Somewhere some villain schemes,
But his number's up.

(3-2-1)
Darkwing Duck
(When there's trouble you call D W)
Darkwing Duck
(Let's get dangerous)
Darkwing Duck
(Darkwing, Darkwing Duck!)

Cloud of smoke and he appears,
Master of surprise.
Who's that cunning mind behind
That shadowy disguise?
Nobody knows for sure,
But bad guys are out of luck.

'Cause here comes
(Darkwing Duck)
Look out!
(When there's trouble, you call D.W.)
Darkwing Duck
(Let's get dangerous)
Darkwing Duck
(Better watch out, you bad boys)
Darkwing Duck!
