All About Elliot


Bonfire of the Panties


Duckman finds an old high school classmate who's been homeless due to something Duckman did to him 20 years ago. Duckman's attempts to help may only make things worse.


  • Episode Title Reference: The phrase "From bad to worse".
  • Principal Dinkler is played by John Vernon, who played the uppity University dean from Animal House.
  • The montage where the homeless Brad is being given a make-over was originally accompanied by the David Naughton song, "Makin' It". This was changed to generic music on the DVD version.


  • This is the third time in the series we're given a backstory on how Duckman and Cornfed met.
  • During the flashbacks of high school, Duckman can briefly be seen bullying King Chicken, which we all know is the reason he is now his sworn enemy.
  • Bernice mentions that she's "fresh out of [sisters]." However, down the line on this same season, it's revealed that she had another sister besides the late Beatrice, named Beverly.
