"Stressed to Kill" is the sixty-sixth episode of Darkwing Duck, and the 53rd episode to air on The Disney Afternoon.


Darkwing comes across some strange crimes and finds out that Quackerjack and Megavolt are the ones behind them. The strange thing is that the citizens of St. Canard don't seem to care what happens and calmly give the criminals anything they ask for. Darkwing can't believe what's going on. He tries to stop the two and overreacts causing the stage they were on to collapse on himself. Darkwing decides it's time that he learned to relax. After a short try with the book that Launchpad had, Darkwing goes to a clinic and does not know that it is being run by Megavolt and Quackerjack. He finds out too late that it is them and gets hit with a relaxitron ray gun. Darkwing returns home relaxed to the point that nothing bothers him, not even Gosalyn causing mayhem in the house and destroying things. Gosalyn is determined to snap him out of it so she and Launchpad take him to face off against Megavolt and Quackerjack. Unfortunately, the confrontation doesn't go as planned and they get away. Megavolt plugs into a power pole to recharge himself and accidentally destroys the relaxitron gun and causes a blackout. Quackerjack then starts a fire to light the evening and the fire quickly spreads. They panic and try to get the fire department to put it out, but the firemen aren't worried about it since they were relaxed by the relaxitron. Lauchpad is driving the Ratcatcher and has to stop all of a sudden and throws Darkwing to where Megavolt and Quackerjack are. They beg Darkwing to help but all he wants to do is roast weenies. Launchpad and Gosalyn get to the scene and Gosalyn asks them whythey haven't tried to put out the fire. Megavolt gets an idea and electrifies a fire hydrant and it bursts spraying water everywhere, but it also causes a flood. They all get on a rubber raft an Gosalyn gets an idea and puts Darkwing with Megavolt and splashes them with water. This shock brings Darkwing back to normal. They are washed into the water plant and Darkwing is able to stop the flow of water. Megavolt and Quackerjack try and escape, but Darkwing stops them too. Drake, Launchpad, and Gosalyn are on a picnic and witness Megavolt and Quackerjack getting on each others nerves.


  • Quackerjack is shown to speak German.
  • The club that Darkwing uses to clobber the jack-in-a-box suddenly disappears when he is dragged to the chair.
