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>

Quotes

Duckman: Somewhere, somehow they all got chewed up and spit back out. They don't taste like living anymore. Don't you see what's it's like living in this deranged, Waring blender of a world? Every day is an agonizing ordeal, like balancing a pot of scalding water on your head while people whip your legs and butt. Ah, you never forget your senior prom. You think I'm sick? Well the only disease I've got is modern life, a shnug-busting gauntlet of inefficiency and misery that's one long parade of letdowns,...

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 »

This was cancelled?
5 January 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

How could this show have been cancelled? It was one of the funniest and most clever shows on cable. This was a great show and deserved a longer time on the air. The series was as funny as The Simpsons and as gross as South Park (that's not a bad thing). I'm so glad Comedy Central has started to air the old episodes.
