    Launchpad McQuack?

    Does anyone know if Launchpad McQuack still frequents the parks? I saw him a little over 2 years ago but I was too late as he was walking into a backstage area.

    I don't think I've ever seen that character there, sorry.



    You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

    He was Scrooge McDuck's pilot in DuckTales and, later on in it's spin-off, Darkwing Duck's sidekick.
    BTW...I had to Google...!

    Maybe it's my age, but I remember Duck Tales and Darkwing Duck very clearly!! I used to watch it when I got home from Primary school in the early '90's!

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    We still have the old VHS's of them and pop them in here and there when we need a time warp.

    I know I have a photo with him from way back, but these days, I don't recall seeing him around much.
