Duckman: Private Dick/Family Man(commonly known as Duckman) is an American adult animated sitcom that aired on the USA Network from March 5, 1994 through September 6, 1997. It was created and developed by Everett Peck. The sitcom is based on characters created by Peck in his 1990 one-shot comic book Dark Horse.
Anivision and its parent Sunwoo Entertainment animated the series and was produced by Klasky Csupo and Reno & Osborn Productions for Paramount Television. It marks Klasky Csupo's second adult-oriented television series after the first three seasons of The Simpsons on the Fox Broadcasting Company. Years after it came out, Peck went on to create Squirrel Boy on Cartoon Network from 2006 to 2007.
The series centers on Eric T. Duckman (voiced by Jason Alexander), a widowed, lewd, self-hating, egocentric anthropomorphic duck who lives with his family in Los Angeles (as mentioned in the episode "Bev Takes a Holiday") and works as a private detective. The tagline of the show, seen in the opening credits, is "Private Dick/Family Man" ("dick" is a triple entendre).
