    Something strange happens to Bushroot in prison and Darkwing and Launchpad are called to investigate. At first, Darkwing thinks that Bushroot is dead but Launchpad find a vine growing out of the cell and they think that Bushroot escaped that way. When they get back home, Honker comes over and tells them that his parents are missing. They go to Honker's house and find the floors full of dirt and a giant cabbage behind the couch. They also find a tape that tells how to care for the cabbage plants and the tape is from a town called Twin Beaks and...moreless

    I was looking forward to watch this episode as i had heard many great things about it. So was i disappointed? Well, as you can see i rated it 9.0 and i believe that it's a fair score to give this "mostly" brilliant episode. This is maybe the darkest episode in the series due to Bushroots rotting corpse that pops up from time to time and the insane dream sequence. I would have given this episode a perfect 10 but i didn't feel that all the questions in this episode was explained good enough. If you by any chance are hoping that it contains a lot of action you will most surely be disappointed, but if you are looking for a different Darkwing Duck episode with a great mystery that needs to be solved you are definetely going to enjoy this one.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Darkwing: (Wakes up from a strange dream) Oh, that was a big help. (Being sarcastic)It's all clear now. About as clear as a tax form.

    • Darkwing: I'm positive that Bushroot is behind it all!
      Gosalyn: Oh, what?
      Darkwing: His plan to take over the...Scheme and the bad stuff. Whatever! I just need a few more clues to sort it out.
      Launchpad: The log thinks Bushroot is innocent.
      Darkwing: Well, of course it does. It's a plant! Sort of. Oh, great. Now he has me debating with kindling.

    • Gosalyn: What happened Honk?
      Honker: They...They (Honker's parents) all disappeared.
      Drake: One can only hope.

    • Drake: Well, that's quite a fashion statement for you two. (Launchpad and Gosalyn are wearing pyramid hats) Who's your designer, King Tut?

    • Launchpad: Say, did you know some police departments use psychic powers to solve crimes?
      Darkwing: Just what kind of tripe are you reading? (Grabs Launchpad's book)
      Launchpad: It's the latest in the Incredibly Large and Weird Books for Your Coffee Table collection.
      Darkwing: Ugh! Launchpad, there is no easy way to solve a crime. Just logic, deduction, and a thorough compiling of clues. Yep, yep. That's how I locked Bushroot away in the first place.
      Launchpad: Gee, I thought it was because he tried hiding in the back of a police car.
      Darkwing: Guh...Just land the plane.

    • Darkwing: (The Thunderquack goes into a spin) Launchpad! (Looks over at Launchpad reading a book and flying the plane with his feet) Would you mind paying a bit more attention to your flying? I'd like to meet with the warden while I'm still among the living.

    • Bushroot: Corn stalks, lend me your ears!

    • Gosalyn: (On the alien repellent) Keen gear, Honk! What is that, weedkiller?
      Honker: Nope, Salad dressing.

    • Launchpad: The cows are not what they seeeem...
      Gosalyn: Weird.
      Honker: even for Launchpad!

    • Launchpad: I think something strange is going on around here.
      Darkwing: No, strange is finding out your wife is an Elvis impersonator from the Bermuda Triangle. This is downright bizarre!

    • Drake: Honker, weirdness is all relative, and your relatives ARE Muddlefoots...no offense.

    • Alien Cow: We come from the planet Larson on the Far Side of the galaxy.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Star Wars

      Darkwing: With Duck Skywalker here, using the power of the farce, it's a wonder we landed on the same planet!

      This is a reference to Luke Skywalker and the Force, from the Star Wars films.

    • Twin Peaks

      The title of this episode is a take off on the series Twin Peaks. There are many references to Twin Peaks, such as the music, "darn fine coffee" and Darkwing's very odd dream sequence.

    • The Far Side

      Alien Cow: We come from the Planet Larson, on the far side of the galaxy!

      A reference to Gary Larson's Far Side comics (similar to Dr. Gary and Dr. Larson in Beauty and The Beet). Like Dr. Gary and Dr. Larson, the alien cows are specifically drawn to resemble Far Side characters.

    • Invasion of the Body Snatchers

      Honker: Those are alien plant invaders who want to replace everyone on Earth!

      This entire episode is a spoof of the 1956 alien film, Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
