"The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain" is the fifty-sixth episode of Darkwing Duck.


A spirit named Paddywhack is unleashed from a haunted jack in the box when Gosalyn gets into mischief, and possesses Quackerjack's doll, Mr. Banana Brain. As he causes trouble alongside the toymaker, he grows, feeding from the negative emotions around himself.



"I am the yoyo that keeps coming back, or something."
- Gosalyn

  • "The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain" is the closest the Darkwing Duck cartoon comes to giving Quackerjack an origin episode. He reiterates what drove him to criminality from his introduction in "Whiffle While You Work" and this is the one episode that shows him out of his costume.
  • In the scene where Darkwing and Quackerjack defeat Paddywhack, Quackerjack says "Wocka wocka." This could be a possible reference to (the now Disney-owned) Muppets' character Fozzie Bear, whose catchphrase was "Wocka, wocka, wocka!"
  • In one scene, Quackerjack talks about what pizza can do to one's complexion, though in Quack of Ages, he is seen eating pizza.

  • This is episode is one of those alluded to in the 2017 DuckTales Reboot, particularly the season two episode "Friendship Hates Magic" where Launchpad McQuack introduces the in universe Darkwing Duck series to Mrs Beakley
