One of the wittiest, funniest cartoons ever made.
I love this show and I used to watch it during its short four-year stretch on ABC. Jim Cummings (Tigger, Winnie the Pooh, the guard from "Shrek") provides the voice of Darkwing Duck, a sort of equivalent of Batman for a duck world.

Along with his pilot sidekick, daughter and trusty motorcycle, Darkwing Duck fights crime with a vengeance -- and a pretty good sense of humor.

I love this show and I really hope they'll release the DVD so I can revisit them. I haven't seen an episode in years and I've love to see some again.

ABC/Disney, please release a DVD!

Trivia

Jim Cummings (Darkwing Duck/Drake Mallard) has said that out of all the roles he's voiced, Darkwing Duck is his favorite. The reason for this is because of the character's flexibility. There were loads of opportunities for ad-lib, thus making the portrayal of Darkwing a lot more fun.

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.
