Storyline

Willard, a mild-mannered insurance investigator, checks on the claim of an old woman, the owner of a tattoo parlor, who puts out a claim listing her as being dead. She tells him that her Ouija board gave her a message that she would be killed by a wizard. Willard tells her that she will not receive any money until she is dead, and, suddenly, she dies of a heart attack. Her will states that her killer would receive possession of her duck. The Dirty Duck takes Willard on a quest to experience in life to the fullest. First, they are both thrown in jail. Then, the two arrive at a house of ill repute in order to get Willard laid. Written by Alan Smithee

Did You Know?

Trivia

The film was being made under the working title "Cheap" because it was a cheap little movie. The final title was "The Down and Dirty Duck", but Roger Corman (whose production company was distributing the film) released it with the short title "Dirty Duck" on all posters and advertisements to cash in on the recent trend of X-rated animated films which started with Fritz the Cat (1972). The title on the film itself was never changed. See more »

Quotes

Duck: You can't do this to me! I was at Woodstock in '69! I saw 200 MOTELS! I know who I am!

Crazy Credits

The end credits were handwritten (possibly by Charles Swenson), and feature many spelling errors. (I.E. 'nego,' meaning 'NEGRO'; 'dyke' is spelled 'dike'; etc.) See more »

I thought the full title of this was "The Down and Dirty Duck"
11 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

I wish I could find a copy! This is an outstanding piece of sexual satire and general weirdness by Flo & Eddie, with a surreal sex scene that's an obvious and direct precursor to the one in The Wall. I managed to save an audio tape of only part of the song with our favorite lines: "Dogs, horses, or a guy, Give someone DEAD a try!" and Willard's creation of his artificial girl.
