He tells Darkwing about the giant spider and Darkwing attempts to fight it. the spider accidentally bites Darkwing and then uses its webbing to bind up Launchpad and Darkwing. Moliarty sees potential in the naive spider and....
  • Darkwing is bitten by a radioactive spider while chasing Moliarty. But stranger stuff lies ahead as Darkwing grows six arms and an ability to spit web. He turns into Aracnoduck.

    Fantastic episode. Which is kinda strange since Moliarty is the villain which I have never liked as much as say: Quackerjack or Negaduck. But he delivers some really good lines and is actually pretty funny at times. The Aracnoduck costume is too similiar to Spider-Mans but it's no big deal. A well written episode that is pretty funny but most of all exciting and it serves as an instant reminder of why you watch this show in the first place.
