The episode "Green Loontern", which had Dodgers joining the Green Lantern Corps, featured the first animated appearances of many of the more popular Green Lanterns from the comic books, most prominently Boodika and Ch'p. Green Lanterns that were captured by Sinestro included Guy Gardiner, Salaak, Arissa, and Kyle Rayner. Comic fan and writer Kevin Smith voiced the most famous Green Lantern, Hal Jordan. See more »

The opening titles credit the "starring" Looney Tunes like human actors: "Starring Daffy Duck as Duck Dodgers", "Porky Pig as The Eager, Young Space Cadet" and "Marvin the Martian as The Martian Commander". See more »
Take Futurama's Captain Zapp Brannigan and Lieutenant Kif and put them up against Emperor Zurg from the animated Buzz Lightyear series, and you've got "Duck Dodgers." What were they thinking?! Daffy is too over-the-top smarmy, Porky's voice doesn't sound right (even though Bob Bergen is doing it -- maybe the editing is bad?), and Marvin has changed from a bumbling absentminded alien into a bellowing fleet
commander who's as malevolent as he is ineffective. You know the type; they're a dime a dozen these days.
Throw in an army of disposable robots to do Marvin's work for him, way more sexual innuendo than the original Warner Bros. cartoons ever had, lots of pointless dialogue EXPLAINING what's going on instead of SHOWING it, and weird character animation (some of it looks like it's straight out of 'Ren & Stimpy,' with the wild faces the characters make sometimes), and you come out with a series that's a pale shadow of the original. "The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries" did a fine job of putting familiar characters into fun new situations while keeping their personalities and their looks intact; why can't "Duck Dodgers?"
