Duckman goes fowl

Duckman goes fowl IMG_20161001_130533_zpsusvnffep.jpgNo, not the animated series but someone who sells ducks, and other bird related poultry. Still, it strikes me as a very traditional vocation. It also strikes me as also a very visceral way of getting meat on the table.

As to the animated series, Duckman was more for adults because of it’s themes. Duckman was vocally portrayed by Jason Alexander, Duckman was a slightly intellectually under-powered, sex-obsessed private detective. His world was a dis-topian one to say the least. The series producers Peck, Reno, Osborn, Klusky and Csupo were responsible, Klusky and Csupo were also associated with Rugrats and plenty of other animated cartoons. Quite a divergence.

  1. Visceral’s the word! I remember buying some beef from the woman butcher who’d set up her counter and weights in the next apartment block from mine in The Fuz. 10 yuan for a massive steak, terrific, would pay about 10-15 bucks for the same quantity in Aus. Sure it wasn’t Kobe or Angus beef but not all that inferior to Aus beef, either.

    Yet, I couldn’t bring myself to buy any ducks or chickens on display. Sort of illogical, I could buy a slab of beef, I could buy a whole fish, but not a d./c. Must be that the head is still attached but then with a fish it is too!

    I only saw Duckman in passing on tv but from your description of it now I know why my nephew at about age 15 said, “It’s such a good show.” 🙂 Somehow I think his parents were not monitoring his tv watching!

    • It sort of proves that we’ve gotten to be more estranged from how we harvest our food. Aged beef, I’ve learned is a skill and also commands top dollar.

      As for Duckman, funny if you’ve seen Klusky and Csupo’s other cartoons, then you get where they’re coming from. But, as for your fifteen year old nephew, I get why he digs it.
