Biography: Lilliput owned the miniature golf course, Gooney Golf, and was using a strange hat to communicate with and control ants. With his tiny minions, and his trusty shrink ray, he began turning St. Canard’s monuments into miniature props for his golf course. This is essentially his modus operandi, as well as collecting some cash along the way. He is defeated when he shrinks Darkwing down to the size of the germ, and the caped crusader “infects” him.
Apparently symptoms of Darkwing-itus involve one’s face turning green and spotted, and is accompanied by uncontrollable sneezing. See your local doctor immediately, if symptoms worsen into a pervasive urge to wear a cape and speak in obsessive Alliteration.
