Huh? I don't see Launchpad McQuack as a Gadget Hackwrench type of character. Wasn't he just a pilot? What amazes me is that he built it BEFORE meeting Darkwing and SHUSH.

* Given that Duckburg, Gizmoduck, and Scrooge clearly exist even in the cartoon universe ("Fenton and I used to work for the same guy"), I vote for the party that says that particular WordOfGod is what makes no sense. I don't even know ''why'' he would say that -- fans have always loved the characters from both shows existing together and treating them as set in the same world.

* The conflict of "Toys Czar us" was Drake trying to balance crime-fighting with being "the perfect parent." The first act thus consisted on him constantly running between crime-fighting and home, trying to do both jobs, completely oblivious to how each was distracting him from the other. Then, out of the blue, as they're leaving a crime scene after a fight, Launchpad says, "If anything ever happened to you, I'd raise Gos as if she were my own." This is the ''very first time in the episode'' where Darkwing considers that possibility. Up until then, he'd just been thinking of his super hero work as something that had the potential to encroach on the time and attention he believed he needed to give Gosalyn. Now, he suddenly realizes he not only has to worry about not letting crime-fighting steal his attention from her ''but'' about it killing him. He wasn't frightened by the prospect of specifically Launchpad raising his daughter but by the prospect of Gosalyn not having him (Drake) there to take care of her ''at all'': "What if something ''did'' happen to me? Then Gos would ''really'' be out a perfect parent!" You can't do a good job if your other job kills you. The frightening part of Launchpad's statement wasn't "I'd raise Gos as if she were my own" but "If anything happened to you." He subsequently quit crime-fighting from a vow to live up to that Perfect Parent ideal he'd gotten in his head, from the fear of Gosalyn not having him around to be her Perfect Parent, not from horror at anything particular about Launchpad's parenting skills.



According to "Word of God" , Darkwing is set in an alternate universe, away from Ducktales. This makes sense since the F.O.W.L in Ducktales is different from the one in Darkwing Duck, and both Launchpads behave differently. Does that mean that there is no Darkwing Duck in the Ducktales universe, and their universe is screwed since the only super hero we see is Gizmo Duck?

In "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E45DeadDuck Dead Duck]]", just before Death is about to take him back to the Underworld for good, Darkwing asks Launchpad to take care of Gosalyn. The problem is that it's very inconsistent with earlier moments. In "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E30ToysCzarUs Toys Czar Us]]", not that long before, Darkwing is worrying and Launchpad tries to comfort him by saying that if something happened to him, he'd raise Gosalyn like she was his own daughter. The idea scares Darkwing so much that he outright quits crimefighting ([[TenMinuteRetirement briefly]]). What in the world happened between the two episodes that changed his mind?

* For this and similar cartoons (WesternAnimation/Ducktales etc), the rule seems to be that birds can interbreed with each other, but not with other species. Generally the only difference we see is the beaks.

I don't really think its an issue of Over population or anything, I think it's the fact that Gosalyn might not like it. I mean, being an orphan and all, she might feel inferior to a child that was his. Clearly that wouldn't be the case, but I think Darkwing would keep that in mind before he and Morgana had a child together.

* Well, don't forget that this is a spin-off of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' and, by extension, of the Disney duck comics universe. In the Donald Duck/Darkwing Duck/Scrooge McDuck universe, not only one but many different species evolved into sentient life forms. There ARE humans in this world (such as Witch Hazel, the Mad Scientist from "Donald Duck in Ancient Persia", and so on), but we just don't see any in ''Darkwing Duck'' by pure hazard. Oh, and there are also anthropomrophic dogs, owls, pigs, goats, cows, horses and I'm probably still forgetting some others.
