Well I know it is one impulsive act of my cartoon addiction :) But here it is. Darkwing Duck is one of the less popular but fun cartoons. I am sharing some cool facts do share more in the thread below :)
Darkwing Duck was also the first Disney Afternoon property that was produced completely as a genre parody.
The fictional city of St. Canard is a direct parody of Gotham City.
It was the first Disney Afternoon cartoon to emphasize action rather than adventure, with Darkwing routinely engaging in slapstick battles with both supervillains and street criminals. While conflict with villains was routine in earlier Disney Afternoon cartoons, actual fight scenes were relatively rare.
There are seven different versions of the Darkwing Duck introduction. The first two were aired on The Disney Channel when Darkwing Duck first premiered and featured alternate animation and a different version of the familiar theme song. The third version was used on the "Darkly Dawns the Duck" pilot and on VHS. The fourth version was used in syndication and on Toon Disney, and is actually the one they currently use today. The fifth is the version used on The Disney Afternoon, and is the same as the fourth version only cut for time. The sixth and seventh introductions were used on the ABC Saturday Morning airings, and contained mostly scenes from those episodes, starting with Darkwing tiptoeing up the Audubon Bay Bridge.
Darkwing Duck was inspired by a specific episode of DuckTales: "Double-O-Duck", starring Launchpad McQuack as a secret agent.
I used to love this show :)
