Duckman is an animated sitcom created by Everett Peck and developed by Peck, Jeff Reno and Ron Osborn, based on characters created by Peck in his Dark Horse comic.
The series consists of 70 episodes that aired on USA's Up All Night
on Saturday nights from 1994 to 1997 on the USA Network
. The initial showrunners
were Peck, Reno and Osborn, and the show was produced in association with Paramount Television
. The animation was produced by Klasky Csupo
. In later years, the show running duties went to David Misch
and Michael Markowitz
. Creator and Executive Producer, Everett Peck, was with the show for its entire run. Producer Gene Laufenberg
was with the show for most of its run. Scott Wilk and Todd Yvega created original music for the series, including the theme. The first season also featured excerpts from Frank Zappa
's published catalog. The original timeslot for Duckman
episodes while still being produced was changed to later at night due to complaints from parents about children seeing the adult humor-oriented show.
The series follows the adventures of a lascivious private detective duck
who lives with his family and sister
-in-law Bernice (his late wife's identical twin
). Duckman's wife, Beatrice, died before the show began. The tagline of the show, seen in the opening credits, is "Private Dick/Family Man." (Dick being short for Detective, as well as serving as a double entendre
The series takes place in Los Angeles, as indicated by the episode "Bev Takes A Holiday" when Beverly's detective tells her "here is the address in LA" when referring to Duckman's address. Also, in the pilot episode "I, Duckman", there is a closeup of Duckman's California car license plate (which reads "PSSDOFF"), clearly indicating as well that at the very least the series is set in one of the state's major cities.
- Eric Tiberius Duckman (Jason Alexander): The main character, called simply Duckman throughout most of the show, he is portrayed as a lazy, incompetent, self-serving, sexual deviant. He is a widower; when his wife Beatrice died, she left their house to her sister Bernice, so as to ensure some sort of stable environment for her and Duckman's three children, Ajax, Charles and Mambo. He graduated high school in 1971, and is also a graduate of Don Galloway Detective School and has a detective license from Panama signed by Manuel Noriega. Duckman wears glasses which contain his eyes. They can be removed like normal glasses, taking his eyes with them.
Duckman often uses his catch phrases, "What the hell are you staring at?", "Hommina hommina how wah", and his trademark scream of "D'wah!"
- Willibald Feivel Cornfed, also known as Cornfed Pig (Gregg Berger): Duckman's Joe Friday-esque business partner; loosely based on the character "Greggery Peccery" as portrayed by Frank Zappa in a handful of songs. An amazingly talented pig, Cornfed has specialist knowledge from practically every walk of life, and knows dozens of ancient martial arts. For much of the show's run, Cornfed is secretly a virgin - this is "remedied" in an episode regarding the Cornfed family's genetic disease contracted from a relative generations past who enraged a tribal elder in a foreign country and was force fed an odd berry.
Most (if not all) of the cases solved by the Duckman Detective Agency are solved by Cornfed, with Duckman usually hurting the case rather than helping. He has had numerous former occupations, such as mailman, truck driver, waiter, plumber, clerk for a Supreme Court justice, and member of the Irish Parliament. He has a medical degree from a Peruvian medical school, and was also educated in air conditioner and VCR repair (the former of which was paid for by Marla Maples when he did her wainscoting at Mar-A-Lago). He is also a Vietnam veteran; this was revealed when a young man claiming to be his son fathered in the war found him (he was really a con man).
- Ajax Duckman (Dweezil Zappa): Duckman's eldest teenage son. He speaks with a slight surfer-dude accent, and always calls his father "Dod." Despite being somewhat slow, he is a skilled free-verse poet, and occasionally surprises Duckman with a few words of slacker wisdom, as well as the occasional piece of obscure knowledge. His singing voice is a powerful soprano. Ajax got his name from a trucking company Cornfed was driving for when he and Duckman first met. Ajax is a huge Merv Griffin fan.
- Charles and Mambo Duckman (Dana Hill then Pat Musick, and Elizabeth Daily): Duckman's Siamese twin sons, whose heads share the same body and are child geniuses. Duckman can never seem to remember Mambo's name (calling him "la bamba," "mandingo," "mono" and "Gumbel," among other things). In later episodes, occasionally one will attempt to commandeer their one shared body.
- Bernice Florence Hufnagel (Nancy Travis): Duckman's sister-in-law; the identical twin of Beatrice. She is a fanatic fitness buff and hates Duckman with a passion. Bernice is very loving to her nephews and is considered to be their primary caretaker. She eventually falls in love with King Chicken, Duckman's arch-enemy; toward the end of the series they become engaged and marry in the series finale. It is revealed in the fourth season that she was actually a triplet, and had another sister, Beverly, who was separated at birth. She eventually became a congresswoman.
- Beverly Glenn Hufnagel (Nancy Travis): Beatrice and Bernice's long-lost sister. It was revealed in the fourth season that Bernice and Duckman's wife Beatrice were separated from their triplet sister at birth. Eventually she tracked them down and took over Bernice's place in the household when Bernice was elected to Congress. She is much nicer to Duckman than Bernice, and sees the good in him, though she never ceases to be disgusted or mildly offended by his overall behavior.
- Beatrice Hufnagel Duckman (Nancy Travis): Duckman's first wife. Duckman met her in a farming country area in Iowa while working for a magazine that sent him to take pictures of bridges. They spent a lot of time together and quickly fell in love. She was originally married to a duck named Richard until he had a heart attack (caused by Duckman), and she married Duckman soon after. She became pregnant with Duckman's first son Ajax while still married to Richard.
She and Duckman were married for several years until she was believed to have passed away from when Duckman flicked his cigarette out into the street during a parade and it hit a balloon, which deflated and knocked her down a manhole. Beatrice looks a lot like her sisters Bernice and Beverley, but is much softer spoken than either. She is usually seen wearing a dress with her hair fixed up. Duckman idealizes his love for her, despite his puerile tendencies. She is revealed to still be alive in the series finale.
- Grandma-ma/Sophia Longnameovich (Nancy Travis): Duckman's apparently comatose and immensely flatulent mother-in-law. In the episode "Aged Heat", she is kidnapped by her dopplegänger Agnes Delrooney (played by Brian Doyle-Murray), who poses as her for several episodes until her scam is revealed (although in the meantime there was an episode which made it obvious that it was really Grandma-ma). Grandma-ma sits in the same chair and rarely moves. In the episode "Crime, Punishment, War, Peace, and the Idiot", it is revealed that she is a Russian immigrant. She had a boyfriend named Petrov, who looked like Cornfed and was coveted by Trigorin, who looked like Duckman.
- Gecko: Duckman's purple dog. In one episode it was implied that Gecko was stolen by Duckman from one of his neighbors, and that his true name is "Sparky."
- 'King' Chicken (Tim Curry): Duckman's arch-nemesis. Duckman bullied him in high school, setting him down the path to supervillainy. He became engaged to Bernice during the series finale. His catch phrase is simply "Mwah ha haa, bawk bawk bawk!" Usually punctuating the end of his speech about his evil plan.
- Honey Chicken (Judith Light): King Chicken's wife. She has frequent romantic affairs with Duckman, and has had a daughter together with King. She is engaged to Duckman in the final episode.
- Fluffy and Uranus (Pat Musick): Duckman's two teddybear-like office assistants. One is pink, the other is blue, but are otherwise identical. Most episodes featuring the pair, show them attempting to improve Duckman's habits only to be killed in unique or unusual ways.
The show regularly featured high-profile guest stars, including David Duchovny
, Heather Locklear
, Burt Reynolds

(as Homer Simpson
). Jason Alexander
had a small "cameo" as himself in one episode.
Episode 51 "With Friends Like These" was supposed to be voiced by the cast of Friends, but designs were changed at the last minute.
In the final episode, many characters get married and as the ceremonies draw to a close, Beatrice (Duckman's deceased wife) appears and shocks the entire crowd. Cornfed reveals he knew that Beatrice was alive all along. This plot twist is never resolved and has thus created a cliffhanger. Writer Michael Markowitz noted (in Sep 1998): "We never formally planned Part II... and I'll never tell what I personally had in mind. I'm hoping to leave it to my heirs, for the inevitable day when Duckman is revived by future generations. Ah, the Spandex suits they'll wear, the hovercrafts they'll fly!"
Towards the end of the series, a point-and-click adventure computer game
was created. In it, Duckman has become a famous detective, and a television series based on him is about to debut; but, someone is pushing Duckman out of his own life, and replacing him with a bigger, better, heroic Duckman. The player's goal is to help Duckman get rid of the impostor and reclaim his rightful place.
