Characters Edit

The characters from these stories are not quite the ones we know and love from the TV show, or proceeding comics. The prototypes that appear have many noticeable differences then their later incarnatons. 

  • Duckman: In these stories Duckman is noticeably taller, measuring in as the tallest cast member. He is sometimes refered to as "The Duckman". He also doesn't exhibit the redeeming qualities shown in the series, such as being a devoted father and husband, nor is he ever potrayed as particularly sympathetic, meerly overworked and ignored.
  • Pig Friday Cornfed: His vast array of skills and experiences is not present.
  • Beatrice: Duckman's wife was originally alive in these stories. She has Beatrice's hair from the series, but wears the outfit that would later be given to Bernice. She is obsessed with working out and eating healthy, traits that would later be given to Bernice. 
  • Ajax: Ajax's stupidity and emotional niavaty are not present in his original character. Instead he is portrayed as a typical teenager who annoys his father by asking to take the car.
  • Dog Gecko: Pretty much the same, except Duckman is the only family member who likes him. Also, he farts a lot, a trait that would later be given to Grandma-ma.
  • the twins Charles and Mambo: Instead of intelligent and rude, the twins are petty and annoying. They irratate Duckman for no good reason, and later get run over while playing in the driveway,
  • GrandMa-Ma: Instead of comatose, Grandma-ma has been watching TV since the mid 60's. 
  • Fluffy and Uranus: Very similar to what they would be in the series, only instead of plush bears they are gofers.

Extras Edit

  • Original cast write ups, complete with typos.
  • A Duckman history write up and timeline.
