Launchpad McQuack

You can't even see me or Launchpad in the picture, but I promise it's really us! :)  This photo was taken during the Marathon weekend in 2003.  I met Launchpad McQuack on Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom.  The character handler used my camera to take this picture and obviously didn't know how to use a zoom!  If I had the entire picture, instead of us cut out, it would be 90% building/ road and 10% us!  Once I cut us out I had to think of a creative way to showcase the tiny picture.  This was the best I could do using the dye cut machine at the school!    So, there's the story behind meeting Launchpad and getting his autograph.


  1. I love how you fixed the photo. You have definitely inspired me to get as many photos with characters as I can. :o)

  2. I love your story. I didn't even know this character , who is he.

  3. Launchpad is a pilot from the cartoon series "DuckTales" and "Darkwing Duck" in the 1980s. I haven't seen him in the parks lately...
