'Darkwing Duck' has always been a show dear to my heart. One of those favourites from a young age that holds up really well, and is even more entertaining through adult eyes from appreciating the writing and stories even more.
Have been on a roll reviewing individual episodes for certain shows, animated, non-animated and of as many genres as possible (many as part of certain quests), and decided to do it with 'Darkwing Duck' and some others. Something that, as expected and hoped, has proven to be a more than worthwhile project and experience. "Bad Tidings" is not quite one of the best episodes, but is very good with more than enough to show what is so great about the show.
Always miss Gossalyn when she doesn't appear, her personality always brightened my day. Launchpad is also missing and his absence is noticeable and deeply felt.
The animation is very colourful and atmospheric as always however. The music matches what is going on perfectly while it is impossible to forget one of the catchiest theme songs in animation.
Writing is witty, very funny without being too silly and thought-probing without being complicated. Things don't get too childish and it is all easy to follow. The story is compelling enough and lively in pace without being rushed, and executes a nice idea imaginatively without being too silly. Darkwing is an immensely likeable and fun title character and the other members of the gang here are fun. The FOWL organisation entertain and Steelbeak is among my favourite 'Darkwing Duck' villains.
Jim Cummings fits Darkwing like a glove, it is always lovely to hear him in non-villain roles when he excels just as well in them. Rob Paulsen voices with a lot of energy.
To conclude, very enjoyable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
