Sigh... A classic of my childhood.
8 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

When I was growing up, a little child of the 90's, the coolest show around (in my opinion) was Disney's highly hilarious superhero cartoon "Darkwing Duck". Every chance I got I followed the adventures of the egotistical crime fighter. Sadly, those days are gone and done, with mostly crap cartoons littering the networks these days. But "Darkwing Duck" reigns supreme.

One thing that you always remember about the show was it's sense of humor. The jokes ranged from cartoony pratfalls to satire to the just plain odd. The voice talent is also hilarious, with the immortal Jim Cummings in the spotlight as the title role (and about 4 or 5 other characters). Cummings was truly uproarious as the crimefighter with "the ego the size of a small planet" (in one villain's words).

It's been a long time since "Darkwing Duck" was canceled. But it lives on in all children of the 90's memories. Disney, PLEASE release a DVD!
