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.

Duckman
30 April 2005 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

A great show. Knew no bounds (like a few other animated joints about the place) and always served up a laugh.

Produced by two of the same crew, Klasky and Csupo, responsible for the first few seasons of The Simpsons.

Sarcastic, cynical yet strangely warm and welcoming. The familiar voice of Jason Alexander lent the perfect pitch to the often ranting, hapless, underdog, anti-hero title character, Duckman. Not exactly 'nice' viewing however, this is a result of the blunt style and content of writing, which incorporates more reality than schmaltz.

If you spot it on your program guide, cancel whatever you have organized and give it a look.
