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.

I bought this on a leap of faith and popped disc one into my DVD player the day it arrived, only intending to watch the first episode.
I ended up watching the entire set.
How could I have forgotten you, D.W.?
I now proudly call Darkwing Duck my favorite superhero, never mind the weird looks and questions regarding my sanity that might arise.
In my opinion, nothing currently on TV holds up against this show's comedic yet truly dangerous adventures, eclectic rogue's gallery, and sense of family. Gosalyn is not the typically portrayed, "What do you care, you're not my father!" adopted child. At the end of the pilot episode ( my favorite, by the way; the lullaby scene is especially sweet), Darkwing is her dad, and that's all there is to it. Launchpad adds the element of sidekick/brother/unofficial uncle, and between the three of them, the criminal element of St. Canard doesn't stand a chance. I strongly recommend this set if you're looking to recapture the Disney Afternoon. Even if, like me, you don't remember him too well, give Darkwing a shot. You just might find yourself getting dangerous.
For those of you who are old fans of Darkwing Duck, go ahead and buy this volume. Be aware, though, that there are no special features and the episodes are organized according to when they were aired, rather than when they were produced. FYI for anyone concerned about minor editing: "Darkly Dawns the Duck Part 1" leaves out the opening chase scene, which is a pity since it was quite thrilling, but you can probably google it. Don't be discouraged by these negative aspects, though. At least Darkwing Duck has been extracted from the vortex of almost-forgotten Disney cartoons, so buy it while it's available...before it goes out of print. Relive the adventure and humor of this beloved show. I am sure you'll find it funnier now than as a kid.
Highly recommend this to any fan of Darkwing Duck or the older Disney cartoons (TaleSpin, Ducktales, Chip N Dale...)

This is a wonderfully comical series with fun both for adults (who may remember the original series from when it aired) as well as a new generation of Darkwing lovers.
On croise les doigts pour qu'un jour Disney France la sorte au même titre que "Les Gummies", "La bande à Dingo", "Super Baloo" et "Gargoyles", toutes ces séries Disney cultes sorties aux Etats Unis mais scandaleusement inédites en France !
