Duckman isn't your average suave, sophisticated private eye. In fact, he's rude, ignorant, slovenly, and hasn't had a date in years. With the help of his infinitely more capable sidekick, Cornfed, Duckman manages to solve enough cases to cover his alimony payments and cable television bills.Written by

I'm just one more duck detective, that works with a pig, lives with the twin sister of his dead wife, three sons on two bodies, and a mother-in-law with so much gas, she's a fire hazard.

Jack Riley recorded a camo appearance for the episode "Days of Whine and Neuroses" as his Bob Newhart character Elliot Karlin; USA ended up cutting the scene out for time restraints and it has never seen the light of day. A scene was cut from the episode "Aged Heat 2: Women in Heat," in which Duckman violently beats Grandma-Ma, believing her to be Agnes Delarooney, the bank-robbing imposter from season three. USA deemed the scene's content and subject matter "too graphic" for cable TV. See more »
Oh...My...GOD!!! Is it humanly possible to make a television series greater than Duckman? The answer is simple: No, it is not. Why is this show so great? Well, let's see, the writing, the characters, the storylines, the social commentary, the animation... The list could go on and on. This show has been canceled for quite some time (since 1997) but re-runs currently show on Comedy central at some ungodly hour of the night/morning. It doesn't promise to stay there for very long, though. If you want to see this series, start recording it whenever you get the chance. I am currently lucky enough to have almost the entire series on tape. Be sure to pay special atention to the following episodes, which are the best DM has to offer:
America the Beautiful- One of the most biting social commentaries ever shown on TV! It also has a VERY catchy song at the end of the show...
The Once and Future Duck: The most popular DM episode.
Pig Amok: Hilarity in it's purest form.
Noir Gang: My fav episode.
About Face: Some interesting bits of drama and character development.
Role With it: Some more interesting bits of drama and character development.
Bev Takes a Holiday: another fav of mine.
LOVE! ANGER! KVETCHING!: See for Joe Walsh's special version of "Life's been Good" sung towards the end.
Four Weddings Inconceivable: The final episode.
I,Duckman: The first episode.
Gripes of Wrath: A classic!
Psyche: A rather subtle landmark episode that also happens to be excruciantingly funny.
Joking the Chicken: See for Duckman's brilliant speech at the end.
It's a Thing of the Principal: Funny!
Cock Tales for Four: Why didn't this get an emmy!?
The Girls of Route Canal: Hilarious spoof of "The Bridges of Madison County."
Research and Destroy: Great spoof on the film Brazil and office/corporate life in general.
Papa Oom M.O.W. M.O.W.: Funny!
Hamlet 2: Hilarious spoof on Hamlet.
Exile in Guyville: Funny!
Not so Easy Riders: Funny!
Clip Job: Easily the best clip show ever produced! Very self-aware.
The Amazing Collosal Duckman: Funny!
From Brad to Worse: Funny!
Bonfire of the Panties: Funny!
A Room with a Bellevue: Another popular episode.
