An all-cynical, all-evil absurdist variety show that parodies the classic educational PBS shows of the 1970s, made up of old cartoons and educational films, children, and puppets from one's worst nightmares.
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. Written by

Most of season four's episodes featured musical numbers to capitalize on Jason Alexander's Broadway success. See more »
You spent the last six days watching that video tape where she learns what all her vacuum attachments are for.
You said you erased that.
Erased, ran off thousands of copies... it's such a fine line.

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.
