Episode Summary

EDIT
Joking the Chicken
AIRED:
A group of comedians hire Duckman to stop a pathetic mild mannered politically correct chicken whose "clean" stand up routine becomes a comedy sensation. The chicken's routines are funny to everyone except Duckman, who soon discovers the source of his popularity.

  • A typically great episode

    9.0
    This episode has just about everything that makes Duckman great, the family liking something that Duckman doesn't understand or like, and a fiendish plot by his arch nemisis, King Chicken.



    We also see the introduction of Iggy Catalpa, Roxanne, Roullette, and the other comedians that will later grace the show.



    This is also one of the handful of Duckman episodes that has a direct moral to it and one that a lot of people with a laking sence of humor need to see.



    All in all, I would have to say, this is probably one of the best show of the entire series.moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • King Chicken: Relax; you've got the best seat in the house!
      Duckman: Well I appreciate the compliment, but I don't swing that way.

    • Iggy Catalpa: So this medical caregiver of indeterminate gender--because nurses can be male or female--says to his or her disabled--or should I say, differently-abled--patient, 'Why do you have a penguin on your head? They're endangered!' Haaaa!

  • NOTES (2)

    • Music by Frank Zappa included in this episode:

      Theme from Lumpy Gravy

      This is the last episode to feature Frank Zappa's music.

    • Iggy probably represents Woody Allen (He has the basic look of Allen, but Allen is not exactly a "clean" comedian), and the Senator's suggestion of using white-out of the constitution of the United States Of America is probably a refferance to the P.M.R.C. court hearings, in which Frank Zappa was a witness to (Zappa's music also appears during this episode, and much of the first season's episodes. The Pilot, "I, Duckman" was dedicated to FZ.)
