    DW- pizza toppings? u knew that?

    Morgana/ suspious- well, i...dadussed it.

    DW dreamy- she dadussed it, my kinda woman...but isn't it a bit paculiar to hold a board meeting so late?

    Morgana near big window- i enjoy the night, that sun is so harsh on my skin.

    DW- i'm sorta a creature of the night maself.

    takes DW's hands, Morgana-it seems we have a lot in common, let me show u around are operation. DW- well, wait! a tour would let me see ur sercurtiy setup, i would love a tour, shall we?

    Morgana snaps fingers, chains fall, they start running.

    DW interested- ur gonna have to have to show me how u do that.



    the board is mad, wants to remove Morgana from chairperson, they send the mushrooms after them.

    LP, DW and Morgana are in other room, out of breathe.

  • A dark, twisted episode where Darkwing encounters a family of cannibalistic freaks.

    8.5
    This episode had great animation, and it was really dark. But it was not like all the jokes drowned in the darkness of it all. Darkwing meets Morgana, as well as a psycho cannibal family. No doubt, this has probably scared kids all over the world, with it's lack of light and bright colours and scary creatures. As I said, the animation is excellent, in fact, I would say that this is the best animated episode in the series.moreless
  • DW meets Morg for the first time in this great cross spoof of horror movies and film noir.

    9.7
    This episode is a DEFINITE favorite of mine and a very good example of what I remember loving about the show. :-D A fair number of cartoons do horror spoofs and a few others spoof film noir from time to time, but this is one of the extremely few cartoons that's spoofed BOTH genres in the same episode effectively. It all starts out with DW and Launchpad investigating a series of bizarre crimes that turn out to be connected because all the thefts involved pizza toppings. From there, DW ends up having his first meeting with the sultry sorceress Morgana McCawber (in her first appearance [and one of only two appearances as a villainess]) and ends up falling pretty hard for her (understandably so in my humble and honest opinion). And, like many other episodes I liked, this episode ALSO shows that, DW, for all of his ego and goofiness, CAN be pretty competent when he's focused on the job. All in all, an awesome episode that's made a DW/Morg shipper out of me from the first time I've seen it. :-Dmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In this episode Morgana says sun makes her skin feel all bad. But she was exsposed to the sun in " Just Us Justic Ducks" and she was fine. (even if this episode aired before that, it would still be a goof.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Darkwing: Why would bats want anchovies?
      Launchpad: Maybe they're worried about their cholesterol count!

    • Launchpad: Gee DW, sorry about your girlfriend being a fiendish, bloodsucking creature from the netherworld.
      Darkwing: Hey, hey, hey! - Nobody's doing any bloodsucking! She's just misguided.

    • Darkwing: Did I miss something? Where was the off ramp that said 'the twilight zone'?

    • Darkwing: I am the onion that stings in your eyes!

    • Morgana: Good evening. I'm Morgana Macawber, president of Macawber's Mushrooms. Nice to meet you, mister--
      Darkwing: Dingwing Dork--(Flustered; indistinguishable stammering) Dark...Dark...Darkwing Duck. (Recovers) At your service.
      Morgana: What an unusual name. But then you appear to be very unusual. I like that.

  • NOTES (2)

    • When Darkwing and Launchpad are chasing the Hell Hounds near the beginning of the episode, there is a billboard advert for 'Duck Soup' in the backround. As many of the citizens of St Canard are ducks, this would make them cannnibals.

    • This is Morgana's first appearance.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Darkwing opens a door to be confronted with a room full of staircases that are upside down, back to front, and lead all over the place. This is a take on a very famous 1953 lithograh by M.C Escher called Relativity. Maurits Corneli Escher was a Dutch graphic artist famous for his works that created optical illusions and his 'so called impossible structures', including 'Ascending and Descending', and 'Other World'. His works are known all over the world, with 'Relativity' being perhaps the most famous. He made over 448 woodcuts and lithographs, and 2000 sketches in his lifetime, and died in 1972 at the age of 74.

    • Bram Stoker's Dracula

      Darkwing: Hold it right there, Renfield.

      Renfield is the insane assistant to Count Dracula in Bram Stoker's novel, also featured in many subsequent films.
