Darkwing's TV producer feels that Darkwing's TV show needs a new gimmick in the form of a spin-off character, which might really be Darkwing's replacement by Dr. Reginald Bushroot! This scheme is actually a scam by the TV producer to steal money from the show with an overinflated expense account -- since it's much cheaper to have a plant such as Bushroot as the main star than an actor such as Darkwing!
- Cinderella's Pumpkin Coach and Benny the Cab from Who Framed Roger Rabbit can be seen when Darkwing and Gosalyn arrive at the studio.
- Running gag: Gosalyn and Honker spray water and throws a pie at someone whoever says "aardvark" (mostly Darkwing).
- Running gag: Darkwing being mistaken for Donald Duck.
