    Better than average epsiode-I'd wish there were more crazy Villians like Quackerjack and Megavolt in the series!
  • This was supposed to be the first appearence of Quackerjack.

    Drake is cleaning house when he notices Gosalyn playing a video game called Whiffle Boy. Drake tells her that she needs to go to her room and do her homework. She reluctantly goes and breezes through her homework and comes back to find Drake playing the game. It seems that they have both been chosen for the Whiffle Boy video game playoffs. Meanwhile, Quackerjack blows up a Whiffle Boy warehouse and declares that he will get his revenge on the Whiffle Boy franchise that put his toy line out of business. When Gosalyn and Drake go to the local playoff and...
  • Although we have seen Quackerjack some times before THIS is supposed to be his first appearance.

    Quackerjack! A most interesting villain that appears with two personalities that may differ from episode to episode. In episodes like...say: "Just Us Justice Ducks Parts 1 & 2", "Time and Punishment", "Stressed to Kill" and this episode, Quackerjack appears as a 100% wacko that's completely insane. But on the other hand in episodes like: "Days of Blunder" and "Quack of Ages" we see a more calculating madman that proves that he is to be considered a huge threat. Back to this episode. A episode i was most thrilled to see because i had been looking forward to it for so long. The first thing i noticed was the animation. Why the hell do they use the same weird animation on origin episodes?(Dry Hard and Water Way to Go which introduced Liquidator and Steelbeak) Anyway it was improved a lot since "Water Way to Go" with some brilliant animation and the regular flaws now and then which i've come to expect from this particular Darkwing animation style. The animation starts off great but loses itself near the end. Still a great episode featuring a great villain.
