  • Drake unknowingly signs up for a program that allows Tuskernini to come live with him.

    Darkwing is in a courtroom and is showing evidence that Tuskernini robbed a bank. Tuskernini pleads innocent and says that Darkwing has framed him. A scuffle ensues and the next scene shows Drake at home with a knot on his head and trying to relax after the courtroom disaster. Herb and Binkie Muddlefoot come over and Drake signs up for a program without looking at what it was to get rid of them. The Muddlefoots come back and show Drake the convict that they have adopted and tell him that the one he signed up for is on the way. It turns out that the convict for Drake is none other than Tuskernini.moreless
