Darkwing Duck is back with 27 more episodes on three discs. And he's just as egotistical as ever.
For those unfamiliar, this cartoon follows the misadventures of Darkwing Duck, crime fighter in the city of St. Canard. There he faces such villains as Quackerjack, a demented toy maker, Megavolt, an eltrocharged duck, Negaduck, a manifestation of his evil side, and the organization F.O.W.L. And he does it all with his trusty gas gun and the help of his sidekick Launchpad and his daughter Gosalyn.
The episodes in this set contain some real winners. We get the origin of Liquidator, easily my favorite villain from the series. Neighbors the Muddlefoots head to a strange town with mutant cabbages. We get two time travel adventures, one that takes us back to the middle ages and one that takes us to a future ruled by a militant Darkwing. DW even must face off again death himself after he crashes while not wearing his helmet.
This show is so incredibly fun, and these episodes are no different. They are filled with mystery and adventure, yet also combine plenty of laughs. I especially enjoy their pun filled episodes, but their spoofs are just as fun. I'll admit a couple were slightly creepy. And the shows are filled with all the cartoon violence you can handle.
As with the first set, the episodes are in original aired order, which means they are in random order. It's rather hard to follow any storyline as character relationships seem to change at will as a result. There are also no extras, but the picture and sound are great.
These shows are great whether you want a laugh or a thrill. If you missed this show when it was on TV, jump on the chance to own the discs now.
