“Twin Beaks” (February 10, 1992)
This is a preview for the Weirdest Episode Ever about the time Darkwing Duck did a parody of Twin Peaks. The full episode is an exclusive for patrons pledging $5 or more a month, but this preview is going on the free feed both as an enticement and also because I share some quotes from Tad Stones, creator of Darkwing Duck, about how this strange piece of TV came to be. If you want to hear the full episode, head over to our Patreon and pledge at the $5-a-month level; you’ll not only get all WEEs so far but also every episode of the new miniseries, Backdoor Pilots, launching next month.
Let’s get dangerous!
For a history of the Scrooge McDuck comics and how they ended up onscreen as Ducktales, listen to the What a Cartoon episode about it.
Why yes, Drew did in fact compile a list of all the instances of doubling on the original Twin Peaks.
Watch Sesame Street’s own Twin Peaks parody, which is also called Twin Beaks.
