  • Great episode especially for any DC comica fan

    10
    This episode was one of the best it was very funny. The idea of using the green lantern was great. This episode was especially good for any fans of the DC comics chracters known as the Green Lanterns. There are many look quickly that DC fans will love. The cadet was no in it a lot but it was still great.Duck Dodger was great thought the whole show. I would have to say this episode was one of the best if not the best episode of the whole series. I strongly recommend it to anyone not just fans of the show.moreless
  • Hello! Duck Dodgers becomes a Green Lantern. Need I say more?

    I can t believe they thought of this. Its really funny especially when Dodgers gets into Sinestros base. It begins when he gets the wrong suit and Hal Jordan or Kyle Rayner get Dodgers uniform. See when he gets the uniform it is never classified wether he gets Hal Jordans or Kyle Rayners. It looks like Hal Jordan but he talks like Kyle Rayner. However i agree with the time setting. Since space travel is up to date, it seems fitting that they put in Green Lantern Corps. Now there is one setback. There is no Green Lantern series. Now they need a Justice League Unlimited tie in with Duck Dodgers.moreless
  • A play on The Green Lantern Corps. Need I say more?

    5.5
    Well...That's all that can be said really, a parody of The Green Lantern Corps with a dry-cleaning mix-up thrown in as an excuse.





    Without the Martians, there is little to be said about this except that it is a chance to play with the superhero idea, as every other series has done at one time or another. A good idea with The Green Lantern, but there is little to be said for or against this particular episode.

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Why would Hal Jordan have his ring stored with his Green Lantern outfit if he had it dry-cleaned? Furthermore, why would he have his outfit dry-cleaned in the first place, if the outfit is more or less part of the ring? (See the end of the episode.)

    • Even though Duck Dodgers is set in the 24th Century, all of the Green Lanterns shown (Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, Kilowog, Katma Tui, and Ch'p) are all from the 20th-21st Century as is the GL villain Sinestro. Ganthet's presence is understandable since Guardians are immortal.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • DD: In blackest day or brightest night ... Watermelon, cantaloupe, yadda-yadda ... Erm ...
      Superstitious and cowardly lot with liberty and justice for all!

    • DD: With great power comes a reasonable amount of power abuse.

    • GL Dodgers: (to Sinestro) You know, in real life, you really do look like the devil!
      Sinestro: Yes, well, I get that, um, a lot.

    • Droid 1: Hey, I think I went to High School with him.
      Droid 2: Really? Where'd you go?
      Droid 1: I went to East Polygon High. How about you?
      Droid 2: North High Tech.
      Droid 1: The Crimison Techies, eh? I hate you!
      Droid 2: Well, your football program stunk!

    • Ganthet: This creature is not evil! Stupid, perhaps very stupid, but not evil!

    • GL Dodgers: You know, I must tell you that I have the strength of a 100 -- tiny, trembling Chihuahuas!!

    • Droid 2: Don't trust him, fellas. He's from East Polygon High.
      Droid 3: A Fighting Trojan, eh?
      DD inside the droid: I tried to transfer!

  • NOTES (8)

    • One of Sinestro's robots, after ordered to check out the attack droid, says "by your command" which is what Baltar's robots used to say to him after being given an order on the old 70's show Battlestar Galactica.

    • This episode is "Chapter: 12.05".

    • Every Green Lantern, even the ones seen briefly, come from various issues of the Green Lantern comic books over the last six decades. One quick shot shows the human GL's: Guy Gardner and Justice League's John Stewart.

    • John Stephenson (Ganthet) is one of those actors who have been around for decades - he also did various voices on the Super Friends TV show, which featured the Hal Jordan Green Lantern.

    • This episode also features a reference to the rock band Rush. When Duck enters the enemy base, the robots open "Red Sector A", allowing Duck to enter. "Red Sector A" is a song from Rush's 1984 album, Grace Under Pressure.

    • Spider-Man and (indirectly) Batman ("Criminals are a superstitious, cowardly lot...") are also referenced.

    • The show makes an in-joke reference to the Super Friends - the Lantern insignia swoops in as a shot transition, using the same music as the Super Friends logo did when they transitioned to a new scene on the early Super Friends episodes.

    • Samurai Jack makes a brief cameo appearance - look at the suspended GLs in the last shot before they are freed. One GL, just to the right of Guy Gardner, is wearing a familiar broad-brimmed samurai hat, although most of his distinctive features are shadowed.
