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 television bills. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

The series premiered in 1994, the same year as another Klasky Csupo production, otherwise known as Aaahh!!! Real Monsters. See more »

Quotes

Cornfed: Be careful, Duckman. A cursory olfactory analysis of this woman's sweat glands indicates that decades of alcohol ingestion have permeated her cellular structure and made her a prime candidate for spontaneous combustion.

Alternate Versions

Jack Riley recorded a camo appearance for the episode "Days of Whine and Neuroses" as his Bob Newhart character Elliot Karlin; USA ended up cutting the scene out for time restraints and it has never seen the light of day. A scene was cut from the episode "Aged Heat 2: Women in Heat," in which Duckman violently beats Grandma-Ma, believing her to be Agnes Delarooney, the bank-robbing imposter from season three. USA deemed the scene's content and subject matter "too graphic" for cable TV. See more »

Duckman
30 April 2005 | by tinytyrantSee 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.
