Storyline

Duckman isn't your average suave, sophisticated private eye. In fact, he's rude, ignorant, slovenly, and hasn't had a date in years. With the help of his infinitely more capable sidekick, Cornfed, Duckman manages to solve enough cases to cover his alimony payments and cable TV bills.

Cornfed: Oh, I have issues all right. Like that time he made me miss my mother's funeral so he could carterize his lucky goiter or that time he got drunk and gave my phone number out to all of those prostitutes or that time he sold all of my furniture to buy those Who's The Boss comemorative plates.
Duckman: They were supposed to triple in value. DAMN YOU TO HELL TONY DANZA!

One of Klasky-Csupo's Better Brainchildren
22 November 2001 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

That's the best way to describe it. Since 1997, cartoon fans have had to put up with overexposure to loathesome shows like (newer) Rugrats, The Wild Thornberrys, Rocket Power, and As Told By Ginger. Ironically, all four are from Klasky-Csupo, and are currently airing on Nickelodeon. Apparently, neither give a damn about making good cartoons anymore.

K-C wasn't always bad. One of it's good cartoons were Duckman, and possibly one of the funniest ever. It's artwork is so-so, but the writing is brilliant. During its 3-year run, almost every joke in every episode was funny & upbeat. Much of its humor was adult-oriented, but it has some suitable for teens as well. Duckman was sort of 'Ren & Stimpy meets The Simpsons', and was about as good as both during its time. But because it couldn't quite measure up to their successes, USA cancelled Duckman in 1997 after 70 episodes, with a cliffhanger which remains unsolved.

Still, Duckman was one of the true Turkish Delights of the animation renaissance. I like to look back on this when Klasky-Csupo is still jamming their Four Fiendish Follies down everybody's throats. I recommend Duckman to be seen by kids & adults of all ages.
