The hero of this grown-up cartoon is a bumbling private detective and ineffectual paterfamilias. He's hapless, hectored, henpecked, and he's trying to quit smoking. No wonder Duckman is one cranky drake.

In temperament, the crudely drawn Duckman (voice provided by Seinfeld's Jason Alexander) is like his relative Daffy, constantly blowing gaskets over life's frustrations.

The show is a train crash of sight gags, puns, spoofs and mock-existential ponderings. Inventive and daft, this cartoon is just plain ducky.
