Champion of right,
Swoops down from the shadows!
Darkwing owns the night!
Somewhere some villain schemes
Which villain is scheming this time....well it takes place in a Greenhouse where a scientist/botanist named Dr. Reginald Bushroot was about to prove his colleagues wrong about wanting to no longer fund his experiments. However, the experiment goes wrong and turns him into a half plant/half duck that can control plants, trees and any living green on the planet.
Now you have a brilliant scientist who is immortal that has to face the terror that flaps in the night! This should be a battle for the ages.
Well, not really. Bushroot may have been a recurring Super Villain, but he was different than the others. He was lonely and all he wanted was companionship. He couldn't help that it caused him to do some wrong things to get that and have his experiments go wrong in the process of trying to do so. Bushroot also was very sympathetic which served as a weakness.
This was another one of the VHS tapes I picked up when my video store went under. This one features the half plant/duck as apart of the Fearsome Five who are the Top 5 villains in St.Canard and they must face the Justice Ducks led by Darkwing. It appears evil may win....I won't spill the beans on how it ends or if it does. You will have to watch it.
At one point in my life I had the Bushroot figure with my set of figures such as Darkwing Duck, Launchpad McQuack, Megavolt (we saw this one in part 1), and Steelbeek but as I said, my parents sold them all off. There were only eight figures in all and I had a little more than half of them.
On the back, there is a button you can slide up and down to make his hair grow and ungrow.
Bushroot was my third favorite villain on the show and a toy I used a lot for my villain vs the duck. My favorite villain was Negaduck followed closely by the Liquidator, but they never made a toys of them so my most used one became Bushroot.
A thanks to Jake for the walk down memory lane again and to Darkwing for saving the day one more time.
