  • Before South Park, Family Guy, American Dad and contemporaneous with Beavis and Butt-Head - politically incorrect, irreverent funny, thy name is Duckman.

    Nowadays, South Park is an established institutions, Family Guy and American Dad are considered ground-breaking, and the irreverences of Beavis and Butt-Head is thought to be the seed of it all. But between 1994 and 1997, and amazing show called Duckman ran, which was much funnier and off-the-wall than Beavis and Butt-Head and just as politically incorrect in a funny way as Family Guy, or even more, but 7-8 years before Family Guy even began. Who nowadays thinks something as Family Guy could have been on the air almost a decade agon, when the comparatively mild Beavis and Butt-Head were considered the epitome of "bad taste funny"? And yet, there was Duckman, wonderfully voiced by Jason Alexander (try listening to him in Seinfeld while visualizing Duckman - it's weird and quite funny), drawn in an original manner, in a crazy world. And yet, you sort of cared about Duckman, because there was more character development there than in Family Guy or American Dad, which are more of a collection of one-liners than of character humor.
    It's sad that Duckman does not have the classic status bestowed upon Beavis and Butt-Head, that it is not available on DVD (what the hell is up wih that!), and that Duckman's minute-long cursing rants do not warp the minds of more teens.
