Darkwing Duck
Darkwing Duck is the main character in the old school Disney Channel show: Darkwing Duck. He is from the town of Saint Canard, and his true identity is Drake Mallard. He is a crime fighter, and fights the likes of Megavolt, Dr. Reginald Bushroot, The Liquidator, Quackerjack, Negaduck, Tuskernini, Taurus Bulba, Professor Moliarty, and Splatter Phoenix.
Drake Mallard has a 9 year old adopted daughter named Gosalyn, and they live next door to the very strange Muddlefoots family. Darkwing Duck has a sidekick, a wonderful character who we talked about on the first Who's Who Wednesday, named Launchpad McQuack.
Darkwing Duck/Drake Mallard have a very simple wardrobe. Drake Mallard almost always wears a pink long sleeve shirt with a green sweater vest with a sort of argyle look to it. Darkwing Duck on the other hand has a very dark hero look to him; he wears a blue turtleneck with a purple jacket over it and a purple cape, with a really sweet looking purple crime fighting hat.
Darkwing Duck has a classic quote that he also says when arriving to apprehend a criminal, and that is 'I am the terror that flaps in the night' and then he adds a different line to it every time, some of my favorites are 'I am the termite that devours your floorboards," 'I am the raspberry seed you can't floss out,' 'I am the itch you cannot reach,' 'I am the hairball the clogs your drains,' 'I am the smoke that smokes smoked oysters,' 'I am the ten dollar service charge on all returned checks,' and ' I am the low ratings that cancel your program.'
Darkwing Duck/Drake Mallard are voiced by Jim Cummings who has voiced in television shows and movies such as 101 Dalmatians, Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears, Aladdin, The book of Pooh, Bonkers, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, Ducktales, Gargoyles, Goof Troop, House of Mouse, Tarzan, The Little Mermaid, Marsupilami, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, The new adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Quack Pack, and Talespin. While movies were Aladdin 2 and 3, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Brother Bear 2, The Fox and the Hound 2, A Goofy Movie, Hercules, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Jungle Book 2, Lady and the Tramp 2, The Lion King, The Lion King 2, The Lion King 1 1/2, The Little Mermaid 3, various Mickey Christmas movies, Mulan, various Pooh movies, Pocahontas 1 and 2, The Princess and the Frog, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure. To say the least he is a Disney Legend.
Darkwing Duck has been retired as a meet and greet character but can be seen of very rare special occasions, hopefully with the comic book series taking off again by Boom Studios, we will see more of Darkwing Duck in the future.
