Plot

Episode Title Reference: 1962 film, Manchurian Candidate. This episode also reveals that, despite the fact that King Chicken had previously used Iggy as pawn in a maniacal plot to isolate Duckman in joking Chicken, plot that Iggy himself says wasn't very nice, they still remain friends afterwards. Iggy even has an autographed photo of KC that read best wishes on your world domination. During the brainwashing sequence, x-ray they use to analyze Duckman's brain is the same hospital x-ray created in psyche. This episode features a scene where Duckman tries to kill himself, his family not caring enough to stop him. A similar scene occurs in video game. String of overhead conspirators that appear at the very end of the episode end with Morris Needlemen, persona of King Chicken's.

Prolific production company Klasky-Csupo is to Animated ugliness and freakish character design what Disney is to doe-eye animals and syrupy cuteness. Klasky-Csupo animated Simpsons back when the beloved cartoon Family still looked like mutants. Then its rugrats give world babies with a face only an unusually indulgent mother could love. In 1994, Klasky-Csupo capos Arlene Klasky and Gabor Csupo developed and executive-produce Duckman, dark, adult animated adaptation of EVERETT PECK's Dark Horse comic about an irascible, bespectacled Duck who's as ugly morally as he is physically. Jason Alexander voices the title character with an intentionally grating rasp and an emotional palette that runs spectrum from mildly annoy to exasperate to apoplectic. He's cantankerous fowl along the lines of Daffy and Donald Duck, but without their impulse control and social graces. It's telling that the show's only adorable characters, obnoxiously cute sentient teddy bears that work for Duckman, exist solely to be torture and abuse. Alexander's eternally angry Duck lives with his three sonsa, brilliant Siamese-twin team and affable boneheadas, well as his dead wife's sister, fitness-obsess shrew who makes no attempt to hide her contempt for him. Duckman works as a private detective alongside hyper-efficient, brilliant pig with Jack Webb's deadpan monotone who regularly saves Duckman from his own incompetence. Though it lasted respectable four years and was nominated for three Emmys, Duckman was ahead of its time. Its grating, often unlikeable protagonist, dark absurdist tone, penchant for pop-culture riffing and parody, and metatextual tomfoolery give it a distinctly contemporary feel: Seth MacFarlane has made a fortune plowing this ground with less inspiration and more cheap non sequiturs. Duckman boasts pleasing comic density: Many of the funniest bits are throwaway blink-and-you'll-miss-them sight gags or one-liners Alexander mumbles under his breath, Popeye-style. Duckman was too quirky, ugly, uncompromising, and weird to engender mainstream acceptance that greets Simpsons, but those are very qualities that allow Duckman to shriek his way into the hearts and minds of the show's devoted cult. Key features: audio commentary from PECK and Alexander and pair of behind-scenes featurettes on the show's development.

The show was critically acclaim. In January 2009, IGN listed Duckman as 48 Best in Top 100 Best animated TV Shows. Episodes TV or not to Be, Noir Gang, and Duckman and Cornfed in 'Haunted Society Plumbers' were nominated for Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program in 1994, 1996, and 1997, respectively. On March 25 1994, Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly stated what in world does Duckman have to be so smug about? And give brief words of criticism, mostly on episode TV or not to be. This specific review is mocked by Cornfed in in Nam of Father, after he overlooks the episode's events.
