    Better than i expected, considering the fact that no one of my favorite villains where included. In this episode we fully understand why Darkwing dislikes Herb Muddlefoot so much, he is really annoying. This episode is funny but never exciting, and the climax at the end is really just dumb. An average episode due to the humour.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Drake drives up to the gym for the first time, he is wearing his Darkwing mask.

    • When Darkwing Duck, Herb and the villian fall into the fountain, when the villian says "You big meanie look what you did" Darkwing should have nothing on but his hat, mask, diaper and cape but when he says that he is wearing his full outfit.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Binkie: Oh, you must be one of those pleasant little attendants we read about in the brochure.
      Slim: All right, you mealy-mouthed, soggy sacks of birdseed, fall in!
      Herb: Maybe you should get a different brochure.

    • Launchpad: (About to fall out a window) Oh, DW!
      Darkwing: Uh-oh, Launchpad's in imminent danger, and my strict moral code dictates that a sidekick's life takes precedent. Besides, good help is hard to find.

    • Darkwing:I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the metal key on the sardine can of justice I am...!
      Henchmen:Darkwing duck!
      Darkwing:So my reputation exceeds me.

    • You Sweat Your Life: The episode title is a play on the saying You Bet Your Life, which was used as the title of a game show hosted famously by Julius "Groucho" Marx.
