The Germ Turns is the sixth episode of the second season.

PlotEdit

The family goes to a new age fair and at one of the booths, Duckman meets his mother who's been reincarnated as a "highly infectious germ". He learns that if he parents his children correctly he won't come back as germ, so he showers his kids with too much affection.

Notes Edit

  • Early on in the episode, Duckman casually mentions to his family that he snuffed out a cigarette inside the house. This is odd, considering that the family had him quit, and that smoking was banned from the house (to the extent that Bernice angrily slammed him onto a wall for that in "Aged Heat".)
  • When Duckman travels through space and time with the crystal, there is a brief reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
  • Katy Segal voices Mrs. Duckman. At the time she was best known for playing Peg Bundy on Married With Children.
