Character Edit

Beatrice Hufnagel-Duckman (voiced by Nancy Travis) was Duckman's very beautiful first wife and the mother of AjaxCharles and Mambo. Duckman met her in a farming county in Iowa while working for a magazine that sent him to take pictures of covered bridges. They spent a lot of time together and quickly fell in love. However, she turned out to be married to a chicken named Richard, whom she states she loves but is not in love with, until he had a heart attack (inadvertently caused by Duckman, who told him the truth of their affair). Soon afterwards, she found out she was pregnant with Duckman's first son, Ajax. The two were married for roughly fifteen years, until she was killed in an accident. (Duckman had flicked his cigarette out into the street during a parade and it hit a balloon which deflated and knocked her down a manhole.) She is usually seen wearing a dress with her hair fixed up. Duckman idealizes his love for her. Despite his puerile tendencies, he never cheated on her and felt extremely guilty about pursuing other relationships a year after she had died.

Not much is known about her life with her family, as most of what we know about her comes from the memories of her husband, children and sister. In all of these memories she is placed on a pedestal, and was always remembered as being perfect. In "Four Weddings Inconceivable", it is revealed that she wasn't dead all this time and Cornfed knew about this, but never told Duckman for unknown reasons.

Character Conception Edit

In the original comic strips Beatrice was alive and sported Bernice's outfit, along with her obsession with working out. When the show went to series and the characters were re-worked Bernice was created and inherited those traits. Other then that however Beatrice's personality remained pretty much the same.
