I remember Darkwing Duck
did a nice spoof of Twin Peaks
, among other things.
I watched most of those old Disney cartoon shows back in the day, Ducktales
, Darkwing Duck
, Rescue Rangers
(which I liked back then, but I didn't know Roger Rabbit
back then. Would have to re-watch it to know if I'd still like it). Anyone remember TaleSpin
? Man, I loved those.
, of course, was a whole different level. I was totally nuts for that show. As a fan, I still love it dearly, and I'd wish Disney would put out the final half of season 2 on DVD already (yeah, I know, sales and all), and I'd wish they'd allow Weisman to continue his Gargoyles
And as a writer, this show was a heavy influence for me. I was too young for Twin Peaks
and Babylon 5
and stuff like that, so it was this show that introduced me to the level of complexity a fiction series could accomplish, how something could be set up in one episode to be paid off several episodes later. Back when I was a kid making up stories with the help of his action figures and drawing his own series of Batman comics, Gargoyles
taught me serialized writing. I owe so much to that show.
