List Rules Vote up Darkwing Duck's most clever catchphrases.

Darkwing Duck was one of the most underappreciated television shows in the history of animation. It was riddled with pop culture references and witty little one liners. It shared capes with comic book characters and sounded off on some of the most relevant pop culture topics of yesteryear. Who could forget the classic characters, the ones who were brave enough to be flawed in a cartoon network that all too often embraced stereotypes and impossible realities? There has only ever been one Darkwing. His daring will forever be remembered.

While there were several shining moments that made this cartoon great, none were quite so memorable as the intro lines from Darkwing Duck. The way the masked crusader introduced himself was always different, yet always the same. His famous, “I am the terror that flaps in the night,” followed by a beloved anecdote that only Darkwing himself could concoct will forever be remembered. Some of the lines he used were reflective of the times. Others were reflective of the episode itself (see the one about the flying saucer). All of them were classic Darkwing - wit, humor, sarcasm and a side of current events.  

Scrolling through these brainy one line Darkwing Duck introduction captions is guaranteed to be a nostalgic experience. Does anyone else remember back when there was a cash line and a check line? Can anyone else recall a time when people wore trousers and musicians had a hit parade? Here are some flashback Darkwing Duck theme phrases guaranteed to jog your memory.
