4 January 2000 | Op_Prime
A Disney classic
A fun cartoon series for the family, Darkwing Duck was a clever parody of DC and Marvel comics. Unlike all those other parodies, this show was smart and could pull it off. The stories were inventive right up to the end of the show. And even though it was smart, it didn't mean it had to be serious. This was a crazy, funny and zany cartoon.

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.
