  • The conclusion of the pilot for this wonderful series.

    Darkwing Duck has rescued Gosalyn from Taurus Bullba's henchmen and has taken her to his secret hideout to keep her safe. Taurus thinks he knows Darkwing's character and offer to surrender to him. Darkwing jumps at the chance and leaves to meet Taurus Bullba. Taurus's condor spots Darkwing Duck when he leave and now they know the location of his hideout. Hammerhead, Hoof, and Mouth go and get Gosalyn. They fail and the condor grabs her. Darkwing Duck arrives at the meeting place and Taurus Bullba appears. He tells Darkwing that it was all a ploy and he now has Gosalyn...
  • This is where the whole thing started. The wrap-up to the pilot of one of my all-time favorite cartoon series.

    Hey, looking back, I have to very definitely admit that this and the previous part were a truly awesome pilot to a great cartoon. Mere words can not describe this prelude to some downright terrific material. DW's shifts from supremely confident to majorly bummed and then back to determined and focused hero was truly something to see. Bulba was a downright powerful, ruthless AND intelligent villain, which made it all the more satisifying to see DW pull himself together and defeat him. I also absolutely loved seeing Gosalyn giving Bulba's goons a major run for her money. LP really DID prove to be a terrific sidekick when he was really needed too. All in all, a brilliant piece of work that served as a great reminder of how good Disney animated television once was, making it all the sadder when you think about some of the stuff Disney's tried to do in recent years. :-D
