Some fans were just thrilled to have an appearance of Darkwing Duck.


Many fans were upset when he became a television show clip within a television show.


So it appeared the wished for resurgence of Darkwing was shot down. But then…Frank Angones, co-producer, writer, and story editor on DuckTales gave fans renewed hope.


Darkwing Duck is one of those shows that fans keep begging Disney to bring back. There were comics from Boom! Studios and Joe’s Books. They were written by Aaron Sparrow and drawn by James Silvani. The comics took place one year after the end of the original show. Sadly, the books were cancelled a couple of years ago.

Clearly there is a demand for the character and I hope they do a lot more with him and his universe. It seems like there may be plans to do just that. Oh and bringing back a comic with better marketing might be a good idea too.

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. I'm a mom and an art teacher. I love to share my love for Disney and I'm also a co-host of the Disney fan podcast Pirates and Princesses (PNP.) Opinions, like my freckles, are all mine.


  1. When they announced that Darkwing would make a cameo, my first response was that they better not screw it up and make him some sort of TV show character.
    Because of that, I guess part of me expected them to do this, but I wasn’t emotionally prepared for it.
    I was actually rather crushed, to be honest.
    I think what upsets me more than anything is that if they do end up trying for a Darkwing revival series or attempt to bring him in as a legit character in the Ducktales universe, I wont be able to respect it.
    He’s been marked as a fictional character BY fictional characters.
    I understand that it’s weird to be upset over a cartoon character being a cartoon character in a cartoon show, as if it somehow makes him less real, but I do feel that it cheapens him.

    They could have just as easily done the exact same scene, but made it a TV report rather than a TV show.
    Darkwing could have still had toys and posters and Launchpad could have still been a fan.
    It’s sad that the way they went is probably the best we will ever get.
