I've always been fond of the 'sweater-tied-around-the-waist' look.



overbearing mom senses tingling at mere mention of 'date'

can't have romance in a Disney show without referencing THAT scene



too dank, pls nerf



NANOMACHINES, SON



still not sure how his head fits in there, it must have cat-like properties

And now, the final episode of this-here two-week episode bomb:

Friday, May 17
DuckTales "The Duck Knight Returns!"
(3:00–3:30 P.M. EDT)

When Scrooge and Dewey make a gritty Darking Duck movie, Launchpad teams up with the original Darkwing to stop it.


Here's that clip again if you missed it on the last page:

lol litrally dead from the 87 cent episode. Glomgold winning is all I ever needed and that song and dance coming into the funeral was the best thing ever, lol.

Owlson easily best of the new characters, like hope she stays with him. Really balances out his craziness.

The Duck Knight Returns

So, we now have a new Darkwing Duck and the introduction of Negaduck. This should be interesting.

Reading the stuff they're doing with Darkwing Duck is really pushing me to catch up with this series. It's some wonderful revisioning.

Wow, as a HUUUGE Darkwing Duck fan I have got to say I love what they did with this episode. I knew when they didn't say the fan's name early on he'd turn out to be Drake Mallard, but to go all in and have Jim Starling become NegaDuck? These guys are great! Here's hoping they can get a greenlight for a spinoff and bring back Gosalyn as well.

Another gigantic Darkwing Duck fan over here saying I absolutely LOVE what they did with this character.
Having Jim Starling become Negaduck at the end was phenomenal.
This episode was amazing. This has to be a backdoor pilot for a new Darkwing Duck series right? I need more of this now.

I think I can say without hyperbole that "The Duck Knight Returns" is one of the best episodes of television I've ever watched. I can't believe how much heart, hilarity, and heroics they packed into 23 minutes. I remember being a bit disappointed with how they initially introduced Darkwing into the universe, but the writers were right when they said it would all pay off in the end. I'm never doubting them again.

And can I just say how brilliant the voice work for the show has been recently?
Jim Cummings hasn't lost a step. But I was shocked that Drake Mallard wasn't Jim as well. I didn't realize Chris Diamantopoulos was such a talented voice actor. And Jameela Jamil was unrecognizable as Gandra Dee. I was really impressed by her American accent.

This episode was amazing. This has to be a backdoor pilot for a new Darkwing Duck series right? I need more of this now.
I hope they jump straight into
Justice Ducks. I have a feeling they turned Gandra Dee into a Catwoman-like foil for Gizmoduck for a reason. And I just realized Storkules could be a great addition to Justice Ducks, too.

Never watched the Ducktales reboot, but I was a big Darkwing Duck fan when I was younger. That episode had me grinning from ear to ear

I don't know, I'd love to see the Justice Ducks (and the Fearsome Five) but I just don't want to see them replacing Stegmutt, Morgana, or Neptunia. Although, a battle between Magica and Morgana would be incredible and something I'd do anything to see. Whatever they do after this episode I'm going to trust these guys, though for the love of God I hope they don't use that new Megavolt design lol.

wait, so why did jim cummings voice starling and the other guy drake? felt kind of weird, i mean nothing against the new voice actor but during the whole episode starling felt like the real darkwing and drake like some imitation, especially because of the voice acting. or was that the whole point? not sure how i'd feel if darkwing gets a new voice actor

DuckTales is such a good reboot that it can reboot other shows within itself and still have it be incredibly satisfying and hype

HOLY SHIT!

They ended that mini-binge on the perfect note.
Like the posters above, I kinda figured that
the new fan was gonna be the real Drake Mallard, coming from the way they hid his name, plus the “picked on” backstory was the same as that of 90s DW. Plus, Jim Cummings doing the Negaduck ranting tone during the final fight was a lock of what was gonna happen next. But it was just as awesome!

The Gravity Falls-esque breaks are definitely bumming, but I can’t wait for the new set in September!

Quoting to agree, except that last part about Gandra. At first glance, she looked like duck Ramona Flowers wearing beats. I can see the half and half measure ala Ada Wong, but dunno about going the full super-villain route. Also, going back to the DW episode,
I loved how Drake’s meanest moment was admitting his disliking of Gizmoduck like the 90s one

binged. And can I say:

Oh My God. That was everything I needed. From meta-commentary on reboots and fans (the writers read era, don't they...), to literally completing the diegetic "cancelled season", I'm Webby-ing out on this goodness.

I really hope this converts more people to the Duck cause! ... and additional seasons, of course.

I'm looking forward to the inevitable Darkwing versus Gizmoduck episode.
Oh hell yes.

Also, a thought occurred to me while rewatching the episode.

What are the odds that the kid that Drake inspires as the new Darkwing Duck like Jim did for him winds up being Gosalyn?

Additionally I have a hunch that Negaduck is gonna be the Big Bad for Season 3!

You know they're make jokes and references to Batman versus Superman.
