Darkwing Duck - Night of the Living Spud television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to crime-ridden streets of St. Canard and a hero who flaps in the night. “Night of the Living Spud” offers the return of Bushroot (Tino Insana) whose attempts to grow a girlfriend go wrong (in a fun homage to Young Frankenstein as Bushroot’s assistant accidentally breaks the crucial ingredient and substitutes whatever else he can find). The result is a vampire potato that turns its victims, including the Muddlefoots and Launchpad (Terence McGovern), into potato-hungry zombies (and literally couch potatoes). The episode is framed by Darkwing Duck (Jim Cummings) telling the story to a group of scouts not all that helpful in getting our hero out of the woods and features Darkwing’s troubles with the country locals who initially mistake our hero for the vampire (a misunderstanding he’ll turn to his advantage as the episode comes to a close).
