That's pretty awesome and even in late 2020 I'm mildly amazed that it got through.

Also, from the episode:

"What could go wrong?"

"Hopefully everything!"


Dear God, this show really is Duck Venture Brothers isn't it?

Honestly in 2020 it's not awesome. It's 2020. We shouldn't be happy with the scraps of representation Disney lets through, especially not with their huge monopoly.

They [Disney, not show creators] don't deserve praise for doing the barest of minimums.

That last shot of the episode looking up at the moon and you can just barely see Lunaris's flagship drifting past it is both beautiful and ominous in equal measure.

Gibbous is gonna let it slip and Glomgold is going to build a fleet of really lovely Spear of Selenes that aren't even going to make it into orbit.

Also I just want to take a moment and appreciate Della's little "Oh gently caress, I shouldn't have said yes to that" moment after everything was over. She is the best worst mom.

Wouldn't that big an amount crash the market value?

Ignoring that, shouldn't Scrooge be actively researching/building a fleet of cargo spaceships for trade with the Moon? Plenty of dollars to be made there with an early monopoly.
Penny would be perfect as an ambassador.

Only if all of it made it into the market. Look at blood diamonds.

Wait a minute, gold and paper dollars literally grow from the ground, canonically.

Ha! Kind of amusing when I watched the episode that I was kind of meh about the Pennie/Launchpad subplot from the other side. I'm totally converted to the idea that Launchpad and Drake frankly make more sense as a gay couple raising a daughter than housemates, but was kind "Really? OK sure, I guess" about Pennie being gay. Shipping be weird I guess. Either way, yay for awkward dates that are just kind of awkward and they're still friends and nothing really gets made of it.

I didn't really "ship" Penny with Launchpad so much as it was hard to see her with one pf the other Duckw because she's so much larger than they are. There at the end she just scooped up Della like she was a child. Hmm, I do see one possible pairing in terms of size that makes me wonder if Mrs. Beakley was perhaps married to another Mrs.

I didn't really see it as shipping, more Launchpad is a lovable bi lunkhead who likes the strong, muscle ladies. I think it's cool representation for bi people.

Launchpad also shows a decent example of how to handle that. This technically would be the first time we have seen Launchpad's attempt at a date . Launchpad actually showed respect for boundarires, and was immediately understanding once Penny explained what was up.

He’s had plenty of opportunities to do both in the last ten years or so but looking at his IMDB this is the first time he’s been asked to do something with his voice alone other than the Hellboy 2 video game (which still based Abe Sapien off his physicality from the movie)

I finally beat the internet. The end boss was hard.



Did the show just establish Launchpad can go toe to toe with Scrooge in a fight and win?

Also, Della playing "cool mom" being a bad thing hopefully gets some exploration because Donald being the voice of reason, while funny, feels...off.

Not sure but Launchpad is looks like he's 80% muscle or something so I wouldn't doubt it. When did they do this anyway?

They already did an episode sorta about this and Donald being the voice of reason and safety is something that was established all the way back in season 1

Plus, ever so often in an episode, it'd become clear that while the family was having the episode's adventure, Launchpad was off having some adventure every bit as intense as their's.

It's actually a pretty classic thing to have Donald as the put-upon everyman who is usually a drag-along on Scrooge's adventures, which translates pretty well into being the voice of reason in a family of adventure junkies.

Donald and Della were in fine form this episode, as was Launchpad.

I always love Halloween episodes, and this one is absolutely going in my "spooky cartoons I rewatch in October" pile along with The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror specials.

You should check out Carmen Sandiego then. This whole (half) season they just released is Halloween themed.

And the Darkwing Duck one showed that he's specifically trained himself to shrug off ridiculous injuries in cartoonish fashion. Toon physics does seem to apply to him in a way that it doesn't to most other characters. Even as a kid he kept setting things on fire apropos of nothing. Also, fun note that he was a chubby kid- looks like he turned all that fat into muscle as he grew up.

That said, Scrooge was probably not trying to actually hurt Launchpad, and seemed pretty unrattled as he picked up the candy.

I also thought Webby's costume was a Beholder or Cacodemon.

Okay, Stephanie Beatriz, weird since I was just watching B99 a minute ago, but great news.
She has quite some range, so I wonder what she's gonna sound like. Seriously, hearing her switch between her real voice and Rosa, is kinda eerie. Also, she totally looks like Chloe Bennet in this interview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbTJriFM-uk
