Darkwing is chasing after Negaduck with Launchpad in the Thunderquack and he jumps onto Negaduck's plane. He is ejected off and Negaduck parachutes down to an island below. Darkwing finds him and Negaduck pulls a fast one on him and gets away. Negaduck sees a witch doctor using an amulet to bring the volcano to life and he runs up and steals it. Darkwing comes along and the witch doctor thinks that he stole the gem and gives him a bad luck curse.
Throughout the rest of the show, poor Darkwing suffers set back after set back due to the bad luck curse and almost gives up until Gosalyn brings his small fan club to him and announces his retirement. They feel bad and Darkwing is fired up once again to prove that he can still save the day. Just as they are about to formulate a plan, Negaduck brings the bridge to life and it starts walking towards St. Canard. Darkwing directs Launchpad to grab one of the swinging metal ropes and they tie its legs and cause it to fall. Then Darkwing lands on Negaduck's ship and grabs the amulet. His bad luck causes misfortune for Negaduck and the ship explodes. The witch doctor cures Darkwing and he says that he will be more careful and not try to press his luck.
