Duckman: Season 1 (1994)

Duckman

Critics Consensus

Clever and crude, Duckman's particular brand of adult humor may not be for everyone, but those looking to laugh at the misery of life will find comfort in its bizarrely brilliant (if borderline nihilistic) commentary.

Critic Reviews for Duckman Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Lest you think Duckman is a highbrow bore, be assured that it's also tedious on the lowbrow level - one regular character is an elderly woman whose sole contribution to the show is to pass gas occasionally.

It's telling that the show's only adorable characters, the obnoxiously cute sentient teddy bears that work for Duckman, exist solely to be tortured and abused.

"Duckman" is a television treasure, clearly in the adult category.

Viewers may have a tougher time generating much sympathy for the alienated Duckman, who alternately complains and takes pot shots at PC targets. He's Archie Bunker in a script by Bret Easton Ellis.

May 8, 2019 | Full Review…

With scripts that approach "Simpsons" quality and a superb cast of voices, "Duckman" is one of TV's funniest programs right out of the box.

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

May 8, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Smart writing, great visuals, a breakneck pace and a cast of bizarre characters keep Duckman fresh and funny, even on repeated viewings.

May 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

But what makes the show work - aside from its surface-level, absurdist humor - is its function as an effective, intelligent satire of pre-millennium American culture.

May 8, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

All that was just sizzle on the steak: Duckman balanced the humor with pathos, rubbing in the fact that the lead character's life is miserable, but also that he loves his three sons and deeply mourns his wife.

May 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Duckman was pushing the envelope and mailing that envelope to places that animated shows didn't even know they could go to.
