    Darkwing Duck is lost and comes across a troop of boy scouts. He offers to tell them a story if they will let him use a compass. He tells them about the time when Bushroot tried to create a bride for himself. The experiment goes awry and Bushroot accidentally creates a giant vampire potato. He goes out to buy her some things, thinking that it will make her like him. Meanwhile, the Muddlefoot family and Gosalyn go on a camping trip and have a run in with the vampire potato. Gosalyn manages to get away and finds Darkwing Duck and Launchpad....moreless

    Bushroot is back once again, although he is not the main villain this time around. Rosie the vampirepotato turns out to be a real challenge for Darkwing. The humour in this episode is definetely darker than usual, and that is good actually, as long as it doesn't become to dark and disturbing that it becomes unfunny, which it doesn't. This episode includes one of my favorite scenes in the entire series involving Darkwing, Bushroot and a lawnmower. Another great episode in the greatest show ever made.moreless
