  • Thank goodness this was the only episode with Darkwing Doubloon.

    This was one of the episode that I liked the least for this series. Darkwing Duck tells a tale about a pirate doing good deeds under the name Darkwing Doubloon. All the major characters are in this one including Darkwing, Launchpad, Gosalyn, Herb, Binkie, Honker, Tank, Gizmoduck, Stegmutt, Negaduck, Megavolt, Bushroot, Quackerjack, and Liquidator. Negaduck is a pirate captain out to prove he is more of a pirate than Darkwing Doubloon. He attacks the king's (Herb) ship and takes all his treasure. Seaman Drake uses the excuse that the ship is sinking to get the royal family off board so he can...moreless
  • A horrible storyline for this show.

    In this episode, Darkwing Duck remembers an ancestor of his named Darkwing Dabloon. This episode, is more or less just Disney running out of unique Darkwing storys. They litterally took Darkwing and the other characters of the series, and threw them on a pirate ship. As if we couldn't of appreciated the story when it was set in St. Canard. In my opinion this is the worst episode in the entire Darkwing series. It has nothing to do with developing story lines, it isn't even really about Darkwing. Granted Darkwing plays Dabloon in the story, and is accompanied by his other major charactors, (Negaduck, Liquidator, Quackerjack, etc.).moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • With the door hinges on Negaduck's cabin on the inside, Launchpad should not have been able to open the door outwards when they were smuggling the jewels off Negaduck's ship. Stegmutt does the same thing when he leaves the cabin and then the door disappears for a second.

    • When Launchpad is fighting Liquidator for the first time, Liquidator has an earring and then it disappears.

    • When the royal family (the Muddlefoots) board the life raft, you can see the outline of Darkwing's face mask on Seaman Drake.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Darkwing: What a Willy Wonker.

    • (Negaduck is forcing Darkwing down the plank with his sword)
      Negaduck: Any last words, baboon?
      Darkwing: That's buffoon...I mean, Doubloon. D-O-U-B-L...Whoa! (Falls into the ocean)

    • Quackerjack: Ship off port! It's playtime!

    • Darkwing: We lost the King's jewels, the King's ship and my reputation as Sourge of the Seven Seas!
      Stegmutt: We still think you're a scourge.
      Launchpad: Yeah, you're the worst.
      Darkwing: You know, you're right. I am. (Chuckles) And by gosh, I'm going after Negaduck!
      Gosalyn: And I know right where to find him. (Shows map)
      Gizmoduck: You stole Negaduck's map, Gos?
      Gosalyn: I just borrowed it a little.
      Darkwing: All's fair with pirates, Giz.

    • Negaduck: Now we got us some Darkwing Dubloon bait!
      Gosalyn: You'll have to catch me first!
      Negaduck: Spirited, eh? (Laughs) I hate that.

    • Megavolt: Get any water on me, and I'll evaporate ya!
      Liquidator: You and what navy?

    • Seaman Drake: Little do they (Referring to the royal family a.k.a. the Muddlefoots) know... and I mean that!

    • Darkwing Doubloon: I am the terror that sails the seas. I am the flea on your parrot.

  • NOTES (1)

    • As Darkwing Doubloon's ship reverses direction when Negaduck's ship attempts to crash into it, just as the ship jumps up from the water, you can hear a Goofy holler.

      Goofy is a Disney character who has appeared in Disney shorts since the 1930's and has stared in several cartoon series.
