History of Darkwing Duck
History of Darkwing Duck:
Again, this is
one of a handful of TV-made cartoons that I really followed. It
lasted quite a while, too, from 1991-1995. I
love the characters. Is there anything funnier than the idea of a
superhero duck? And his catch-phrase "Let's get dangerous!" is
quite snappy. Darkwing Duck was an original character. His
sidekick, inept pilot Launchpad McQuack, was borrowed from the previous
TV cartoon "Ducktales". So was frequent guest-star superhero,
Gizmoduck. Largely, though, "Darkwing Duck" had its own distinct
set of characters. Goslyn was Darkwing Duck's adopted daughter, a
tomboy who also aided him in his crime-fighting duties. Then you
had a whole score of funny acquantainces and wacky villains. This
was a great cartoon series while still being cute and funny and not
"too" over-the-top. "Darkwing Duck" had a balance that most
cartoon shows do not have nowadays.
Christina Cavanaugh as Gosalyn...
Even when this character doesn't say much, she's funny.
Fortunately, Gosalyn talks most of the time. She has such a
funny- sounding voice and it perfectly matches the antics of the
character. Ms. Cavanaugh was also the voice of Babe the pig in
the "Babe" movie, Dexter in "Dexter's Laboratory", and Chuckie in
