  • Darkwing Duck, little known crimefighter, dreams of going up against real villians to become famous. He gets his chance when he finds villians stealing a powerful device, but ends up with a sidekick and little girl as well.

    This pilot episode has everything that makes Darkwing Duck a great show: memorable characters, witty dialogue, and funny, but still engaging action. Not only is this one of the greatest episode in terms of animation, but it does a wonderful job setting up our love for the heroes as well. From the very beginning this show is unique, in that most heroes are shown as flawless, whereas Darkwing struggles with "an ego the size of a small planet." Everything about this episode, from Darkwing saving Gosalyn from kidnapping to his obstacle course breakfast, keeps the viewers entertained. There are few episodes that measure up to this one.
