Honker Muddlefoot is the brainiac best friend of Gosalyn and one of the few characters who knows Darkwing Duck’s secret identity. Unlike the rest of his family, who appear to be blissfully ignorant of the world around them, Honker excels in science and mathematics and has assisted Darkwing in various cases using his science know-how.
Like most cartoon eggheads, Honker is extremely shy and insecure and stutters excessively when nervous. He is the target for most bullies, including his own brother, Tank. He and Gosalyn are carnal opposites which is probably why they get along so well. He has also served as Gosalyn’s side-kick The Arrow Kid when she donned the crimefighter alias The Quiverwing Quack. Gosalyn is always looking out for Honker and trusts him completely.
