"Let's get dangerous!" Indeed, Disney's delightful Darkwing Duck, a masked mallard superhero, can get very dangerous--though the biggest danger he presents, typically, is to himself. Darkwing (DW to his friends) is the well-meaning if flamboyant (and klutzy) protector of St. Canard, a city that looks suspiciously like San Francisco and even has a Golden Gate-like bridge in which the winged avenger has tucked away his secret headquarters. A publicity-seeking ham, DW doesn't possess any superpowers, but has some nifty gadgets and the determination to meddle with nefarious plans of high-profile villains. Among them are the fascinating Bushroot, a disillusioned scientist who turns himself into a plant and has the power to make flora do his bidding; Quackerjack, a cackling, Joker-like evildoer; Megavolt, a whining dog who controls electricity; and the Liquidator, another pooch who is made of, well, water.

DW fancies himself a lone wolf, so to speak, but unlike Batman, he doesn't have the knack for controlling every detail of his life. As a result, this would-be loner acquires a sidekick, a fawning pilot named Launchpad, and an adopted daughter, the headstrong Gosalyn, neither of whom he anticipated. All together they are a family of sorts, and DW needs them more than he cares to admit. This boxed set includes the series' two-part pilot and the first 25 episodes, including the very clever "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlatan," in which DW mistakes a sci-fi movie production on St. Canard's streets for a real alien invasion, and "Duck Blind," in which the temporarily sightless hero refuses to let a loss of vision stand in the way of his derring-do. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Villains beware! Caped crime fighter Darkwing Duck is on the job. With his loyal sidekick, Launchpad, and a whole bunch of zany high-tech gadgets, Darkwing does his best to keep the city of St. Canard safe -- and that's the easy part of his day! Darkwing must juggle the responsibilities of being a superhero and being a dad to nine-year-old Gosalyn. With three discs full of adventure and laughs, DARKWING DUCK is a feather-raising good time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's get dangerous! May 24, 2006
By Liz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
And it's about time, too! This was definitely one of Disney's better shows in the early/mid-90s. Both kids and adults can get a good laugh out of this show and the humor should hold up well over the years, nothing too dated.

I hear that there won't be any extras in this set, but for the chance to finally get hold of this series, I'm more than willing to forgive that. Especially when there's also supposed to be captioning, surround sound and decent artwork on the packaging. Disney also apparently learned their lesson with previous DVD series releases and this time they're including the pilot. Only the first 25 eps of season 1, though, so hopefully the second half will be along soon.

The first 25 eps (and pilot) as follows:

Darkly Dawns the Duck 1&2

Beauty and the Beat

Getting Antsy

Night of the Living Spud

Apes of Wrath

Dirty Money

Duck Blind

Comic Book Capers

Waterway to Go

Paraducks

Easy Come, Easy Grows

A Revolution in Home Appliances

Trading Faces

Hush, Hush Sweet Charlatan

Can't Bayou Love

Bearskin Thug

You Sweat Your Life

Days of Blunder

Just Us Justice Ducks 1&2

Double Darkwings

Aduckyphobia

When Aliens Collide

Jurassic Jumble

Cleanliness Is Next to Badliness

Smarter Than a Speeding Bullet

There's always hope that the next half of the season will have the extras this one is lacking, but even without that, it's still more than worth the money to finally have Darkwing on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disney: please stop editing your product. July 13, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Recent conversation I had with a friend -

Me: It really was the best show ever. Sadly, I haven't been able to bring myself to watch the rest of that DVD I got of the first season. I was so angry that they had put the edited version of the first episode on the DVD. I mean sheesh! I have the unedited version on the original video release. What were they thinking of? Don't they think that people who buy the show do so because they actually want to see it as it was?
Friend: What the hell? Why do they edit all the shows on DVDs these days? ... Way to promote illegal distribution by driving people to P2P networks for the original versions.

I love this show, I really do. I was on the list to be informed when it came out on DVD, and the minute Amazon e-mailed re: its availability I placed my order. I was so excited when it came. The minute it arrived I popped it in and watched the two-part pilot episode.

I haven't touched it since. I was so disheartened at the cuts that had been made (the entire opening chase sequence and assorted gags and dialogue throughout), I didn't have the heart to go back to it and be disappointed again.

I don't know *why* the cuts were made. I doubt it was to tone down any cartoon violence as other equally "violent" moments were left in. I suspect these were edits that were made when the show was actually still on the air, edits made due to time considerations and for more commercial space. However, the full footage should have been restored and included when Disney decided to release the show on DVD.

I don't want to be negative. I wouldn't have reviewed except that, looking at what people have written, I see that no one has mentioned the edits.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Episodes Are Out Of Order August 30, 2006
Format:DVD
I would like to start by saying that I love this show and that I look forward to the day when I can shear it with my children. So understand that it breaks my heart when I say that I was highly disapointed with this set.

Now I can understand the Set not having special features and crappy artwork on the menues and the dvd cases, but what really gets my goat (other than the pilot missing it's original opening sequence)is that the episodes are out of order!!!!!!!!

Insted of collecting the episodes in the order that they were made they are in the order that the negligent programing staff at disney aired them. So it's realy hard to fallow the continuty of the show in it's current state which is verry anoying.

I know this show has'nt aired in nearly a decade, but you wold assume that the marketing staff that pakaged this set could of atleast done a little reaserch. Is that to mutch to ask?

4.0 out of 5 stars Lets Get Dangerous January 10, 2007
Format:DVD
Darkwing Duck has come to DVD at last. These last few years as Disney releases its great Disney Afternoon shows has been a wonderful time for me. I feel like a kid again! If you like this I definately suggest Gumi Bears, Duck Tales, Rescue Rangers, or Tale Spin.

This collection features 25 episodes and the pilot though I don't see how they can be the first 25 when the introduction episodes for several characters are missing. I was disapointed that there was no The Liquidator episodes until the last disc when you get to the "Justice Ducks" episodes which was not in the first season but which is included here. I am not complaining about its inclusion, it has been my favorite Darkwing Duck episode since I was fifteen years old.

The quality of the DVD's is good, with good audio as well. There are no features at all which has been a disapointment with all of the old Disney Afeternoon releases. The episodes could have at least been released in chronological order to make up for the lack of commentary, or animators and writers talking about the series, as was done with Gargoyales

The cartoons are great, maybe the last great cartoons ever done by Disney. But Disney can't make good DVD's that aren't first run. I really wish they cared enough to do a fitting tribute to this collection
