  • Wow! Why did they cancel this show so soon? It was as funny as hell!

    7.5
    The second best Klasky Csupo production! The Simpsons being the first, and Aaahh! Real Monsters! being the third. It follows the adventures of Eric Duckman, who is a maniacal duck who tries to being a detective and is a father of his late wife's children, and has to deal with her stupid cranky twin sister. I saw a lot of episodes on HBO, and it was so damn funny! I have to say, this show's almost like a Family Guy show but without cutaway gags. I just don't understand why this show got cancelled in 3 years. It's also a scary thing that when Everett Peck (creator of Duckman) returned to cartoon network in 2006, he made a show on Cartoon Network that was no where near as good as Duckman.....It was a bad show called Squirrel Boy, that's very creepy how a creator of a hilarious show writer can be mutated into an untalented writer. Overall, this show was great. Why did it have to go so soon?moreless
  • Duckman- where The Simpsons and South Park meet.

    9.0
    Although Duckman hasn't been around for over a decade, I must say- it's still gets to me as the first time I saw it. Duckman is a show about a duck, in a world consisted of many animals- mainly humans. Duckman has a dirty mind, dirty mouth, big ego and glasses. He has some insane family, and some few weird friends. and he is a loser. Duckman has this half-baked taste to it- it's not exactly The Simpsons, as in family love doesn't always triumph and it is way less subtle in its messages, but on the other hand, it doesn't deliver the message right up to your face as South Park does so successfully. It's somewhere in the middle, a show for adults that children really wouldn't get, and yet sweet in its own wacky way. As you can see, it was really ahead of its time. It set the ground to nowadays adult cartoons and held a riot all on its own. Duckman might not be as well known as The Simpsons, South Park of Family Guy, but I'll always keep a special place for it in my memory for a show well done.moreless
  • "And to think, Entertainment Weekly panned us."

    For those who enjoy adult animation, Duckman is an excellent choice. The show follows a Duckman (Jason Alexander), a crazed, sex-starved duck who tries to juggle being a detective (and a bad one at that) and fathering his late wife's children, and putting up with her angry twin sister. The dialogue is exceptionally written: Both intelligent and low-brow at the same time, especially during Duckman's rants. The animation is bizarre, yet inventive, thanks to Everett Peck and Klasky-Csupo. In a way, Duckman was one of the first animated series that was truly adult: More envelope-pushing and provocative than The Simpsons, and may have paved the way for raunchier stuff like South Park. The entire series is now on DVD, and I highly recommend picking it up.moreless
  • A parody of everything American.

    9.8
    This is by far the funniest creation to come out of Klasky Csupo productions (The first few seasons of the Simpsons don't count since they were subcontractors)



    The show had a very strong cast, great writing and a catch phrase that everyone can relate to: "What the hell are you looking at." Besides the regular cast, Duckman somehow drew in great guest stars; Estel Getty, Paul Sorvino, Robert Klien just to name a few.



    I, for one, am glad that it was on cable and not on network TV. It would not have made it though half a season on any of the big four.



    I understand that the entire series is now available on DVD. If you haven't had the pleasure of viewing this hillarious show, do it now.moreless
  • The voice in your head say this is funny

    9.3
    Unlike the often innocuous criticism found in "The Simpsons" (a pretty good show in its own right), and the rude-for-rudeness-sake humour in "South Park," every bit of this series follows a plan. The criticism of US society, from its mercantilism to its selfishness, carries much more bite than it does in any other animated series.



    The cultural references in "Duckman" also tend to be obscure sometimes (anyone browsing the fan sites will realize most have not even been caught). In that, it is different from "The Simpsons," which usually uses pop culture instead of the high-brow stuff often hidden in "Duckman." As other people writing about it notice, there is a growth in the characters (Bernice, Duckman and Cornfed). Also, by making the main character not just an offensive neurotic but in fact someone who is living a personal tragedy (as is made clear in episodes like "The Once and Future Duck" ('You'll love her until the end of your days...') and in "Bev Takes a Holiday" (when he takes a chance to tell Beverly all those things he couldn't tell Beatrice), the series is anchored in a deep sense of reality.
