    • One of the best adult cartoons ever!

      10
      Before we had Family Guy, South Park, American Dad, Cleveland Show, Brickleberry (which is shit), Archer (I hate that too), Moonbeam City (haven't seen it), The Simpsons, we had Duckman. Duckman was a great show. It was about a duck named of course Duckman who is a private detective. He has adventures with his family, who are also ducks while sometimes clashing with his archenemy King Chicken. This show is great. Before we had the aforementioned amazing shows (and Brickleberry and Archer), we had Duckman. It was AWESOME, too bad it was cancelled in 1997.moreless
    • An Underrated Classic about a Duck Detective and his Wacky Adventures.

      9.5
      Just like "The Simpsons", this is what started most adult animated sitcoms, which was not too common in the 90's. The most impressive thing about this show is it's writing and that it would relate with anything happening nowadays like Adam Sandler Movies. The jokes are also hilariously awkward and random. The characters are very entertaining and loads of fun to watch; Duckman, Cornfed, Bernice, Ajax, Charles, Mambo, Grand-mamma and King Chicken, all of the characters are great in their own way. This show is everything that Family Guy wishes it could be. Family Guy tries to be similar to Duckman, but fails completely because the writers don't know the charm that Duckman had. My favorite episode was probably "54 - Bev takes a Holiday" and my least favorite episode would have to be "55 - Love! Anger! Kvetching!" which was the very next episode from my favorite. The series had 4 seasons and 70 episodes in total. I wouldn't mind if this show got renewed for another 4 seasons, kind of like how Futurama came back from cancellation. Then after an 8th season, maybe end the entire series with a theatrical movie. That would be awesome, then Duckman would get the recognition that it deserves. I'll give the series a 9.5 / 10. It is an Outstanding series, that can even top "The Simpsons" and "South If you are into Adult Animation then give it a try. It's definitely worth anyone's time.moreless
    • 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
