Quote Any crash you can walk away from is a good crash!

Aw, family truly is the greatest adventure of—OH NO, THE GROUND! I'm a pilot!

Launchpad McQuack was first introduced in DuckTales as Scrooge McDuck's personal pilot. He also later appeared in the spin of series Darkwing Duck as Darkwing's sidekick.


He is usually depicted as brave, good-hearted, and incredibly dim-witted. While a skillful pilot, he is very bad at landing and almost always crashes instead but, to his credit, he and his passengers always survive such crashes, and he takes a strange sort of pride in being able to crash any imaginable aircraft ("If it's got wings, I can crash it!" he has proudly proclaimed). In one episode, he has a checkbook of all the vehicles he has crashed (including a submarine). He was voiced by Terry McGovern. The character sometimes appears in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom for meet-and-greets, though his appearances have been rarer since the Disney Afternoon cartoon block ended production.

In DuckTales, Launchpad acted as Scrooge McDuck's personal pilot. His imposing physical stature meant that he sometimes acted as a bodyguard for Scrooge as well, though his role was later taken over by Gizmoduck. In earlier episodes, he is idolized as a hero by Huey, Dewey, and Louie's friend Doofus. In later episodes he appears less frequently. Often when a DuckTales story adapted an original Carl Barks story, Launchpad would be used as a stand-in for Donald.

Launchpad is a slightly different character in Darkwing Duck. He performs less action sequences. His design is changed somewhat, with a much larger beak, a generic human tongue regularly used on other cartoon characters as opposed to the somewhat semi-realistic Duck tongue used on the Disney Duck characters and a more muscular torso.

In the DuckTales reboot he is very similar to his original incarnation, but arguably a bit more dim-witted. His appearance is also similar, except for his clothing, as he now wears cargo pants, a ball cap, and a fleece collared jacket.
