  • The first appearance of Megavolt.

    Darkwing and Launchpad find Megavolt stealing some light bulbs and they try to stop him. In the process of trying to capture him, Darkwing is blinded by a burst of light caused by Megavolt. Darkwing is blind and vows to continue to fight crime. He tries several methods and they all fail. Gosalyn feels bad for Darkwing and tries to get him to continue even though at first she wanted him to stop. They trick Darkwing into helping them find Megavolt and they go and scout it out but get captured in the process. Darkwing knows that he is the only one....moreless
  • Darkwing must fight a new villain in St.Canard: Megavolt. After their first encounter Darkwing becomes blind. Can he stop Megavolt and regain his sight?

    Megavolts first appearance, and brilliantly casted Dan Castellaneta is perfect as the crazy electro-villain. But how's the episode? Well, let me put it this way: Has there ever been a bad episode featuring Megavolt? No, and this is certainly no exception. The animation is top notch, as is the action and comedy. Another great episode in this fantastic series. If you haven't seen this episode then catch it on DVD this August.moreless
  • The above summary says it pretty perfectly!

    This episode rocked!! It had everything that made Darkwing Duck great plus even more! It had the goofy villian (Megavolt), comedy, danger and so on. But when 'DW' is blinded it gives the characters all new depths. Drake's piecemeal family is forced to unite to protect and care for a stubbornly independant and newly blinded Darkwing. Gosalyn reveals how much she really cares for her adoptive father in how much she frets over his fate. Darwing also demonstrates that he is a real hero. He rallies and fights for those he loves despite this crippling injury and his own defeatist attitude. All together, this episode is a classic!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Megavolt:Give it up duck. I got the weapons, I got the home advantage, and you can't see. You have lost your senses?
      Darkwing: Just one, but I've got others. For example, touch. Judging by the heat, I'd say I'm directly under a light.
      Megavolt: Very observant, for a blind duck.
      Darkwing: Thanks ever so.
      Megavolt: Now I know how you got your name. You've always been in the dark.
      Darkwing: (Sarcastically) Oh, I am so hurt.

    • Launchpad: (About Megavolt) Boy, this guys a real live wire!
      Darkwing: Fortunately, we have a psychological advantage.
      Launchpad: Uh, because, uh, we're sane, and, uh, he's not?
      Darkwing: No, because Megavolt is afraid of me. I've sent him to the electric chair-twice!

    • Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night...
      Megavolt: Happy flapping!

    • Darkwing: You...Are not a well person.
      Megavolt: What? And you're normal? (Mocking Darkwing) "I am the cold sore that stings your lip"? We're definitely talking demented.

    • MegaVolt: (Over the radio) Darkwing, meet me at first light.
      Launchpad: He wants you to meet him at dawn?
      Darkwing Duck: No, knowing MegaVolt he means the museum where the first light bulb is showcased.

    • MegaVolt: (Over the radio) Three blind mice, three blind mice! Sorry, inside joke.

  • NOTES (3)


    • Delorean DMC-12

      The electric car that Megavolt tries to steal, the DeLoonian Lightning is a parody of the Delorean DMC-12, which made into a time machine in the Back to the Future films.

    • The Wizard of Oz

      After Darkwing trips over a suit of armor. MegaVolt says that he needs a Lion, a Scarecrow, and Little Toto. The Lion, Scarecrow, Toto, the Tin Man (suit), and Dorothy (Darkwing) were the main characters of the Wizard of Oz.

    • Electro

      MegaVolt's abilities are similar to Spider-man's enemy, Electro.

    • Daredevil

      During this episode, Darkwing becomes blind like the Marvel superhero Daredevil, though Darkwing was only temporarily blinded and Daredevil was permanently blinded.
