Queer Duck

The title character, actually named Adam Seymour Duckstein (voiced by Jim J. Bullock), is a gay anthropomorphic duck who works as a nurse. Queer Duck is an animated series that originally appeared on Icebox. ... Jim J. Bullock AKA JM J. Bullock (born James Jackson Bullock on February 9, 1955 in Casper, Wyoming)[2] is an American actor. ... Anthropomorphism, also referred to as personification or prosopopeia, is the attribution of human characteristics to inanimate objects, animals, forces of nature, and others. ... Subfamilies Dendrocygninae Oxyurinae Anatinae Aythyinae Merginae Duck is the common name for a number of species in the Anatidae family of birds. ... // A nurse is a health care professional who is engaged in the practice of nursing. ...


Queer Duck has cyan-colored feathers, a little spiky fringe, and possible purple eye shadow to represent his femininity. He wears a sleeveless rainbow top and, typically like mostly everyone else in the series, doesn’t wear pants. This is another typical example of semi-nudity on cartoon characters aside of Porky Pig, Mickey Mouse, etc. Note: He is often shown to have two fingers and one thumb on each hand, but they change to having the usual three fingers and one thumb on occasion. Porky Pig is an Academy Award-nominated animated cartoon character in the Warner Bros. ... Mickey Mouse is an Academy Award-winning comic animal cartoon character who has become an icon for The Walt Disney Company. ...


Queer Duck is known to gossip on about anything and everything in the series, especially on the phone while watching TV as shown on ‘Oh Christ!’ and ‘A Gay Outing’. He is promiscuous in his own way as well, but not as obsessed with sex as his boyfriend Openly Gator as he often brings the word ‘cock’ into mind but swiftly changes the word as an excuse like cocktails in ‘The Gay Road to Morocco’. Queer Duck is often known to be cold-hearted like in the episode ‘Queer as Fowl’, and also “mistakes” almost anyone and anything involved with gayness.


His nemesis is known to be Dr. Laura Schlessinger, who is pictured as a haggard and ugly old woman. The trouble often starts from there just like in ‘Queer Doc’. Laura Schlessinger, Ph. ...


Queer Duck has also been a victim of queer bashing as shown in ‘Ku Klux Klan & Ollie’ as Ku Klux Klan members attempt to burn his house down. When his disguise attempt fails, he kisses the unveiled Jerry Falwell, only to get shot down by the other homophobics. Then in Heaven he finds out that the other famous icons like Socrates and Leonardo Da Vinci are also gay much to the chagrin of Jerry Falwell. Jerry Lamon Falwell, Sr. ...


Throughout the series, we find out that Queer Duck has an in-denial mother, a diabetic father (whose name is revealed to be Morty in the episode ‘Quack Doctor’), a straight brother named Lucky (who is revealed to have bullied Queer Duck when they were younger), a nephew named Little Lucky and a lesbian sister named Melissa. Queer Duck is not the most beloved child in his family and there are strong hints that his older brother Lucky is the one most favored for being the odd one out because he is desirably straight and that is possibly most pleasing for Mrs. Duckstein.


Queer Duck is afraid to show his sexuality to his nephew Little Lucky (who first appeared in ‘Fiddler on the Roofie’), especially when they were out camping with two other campers who are Little Lucky’s friends when they took out one of his magazines with personal ads such as GBM, S&M and B&D. And in ‘Fiddler on the Roofie’, Little Lucky unwittingly stumbles upon his uncle’s gay pornographic videos which he mistakes for popular cartoons. E.g. Pokémon = Poke-A-Man, Rocky & Bullwinkle = Rockhard & Bullsprinkle. The official Pokémon logo. ... The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show (also known as Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show) was a television animated series created and produced in the USA by Jay Ward. ...


Other characters

Queer Duck's boyfriend, the indigent artist Steven Arlo “Openly” Gator (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson, in the style of Harvey Fierstein), is shy and insecure and is usually the voice of reason whenever Queer Duck gets himself and anyone else into any trouble and possibly the closest one to common sense than anyone else in the show. Their friends throughout the series are Bi Polar Bear (voiced by Ren & Stimpy and Futurama actor Billy West, in the style of Paul Lynde) and the urbane Oscar Wildcat (voice actor Maurice LaMarche).

Recurring supporting characters include Queer Duck's in-denial mother (played by Estelle Harris, George's mother on Seinfeld) and the group's nemesis, Dr. Laura Schlessinger (played by voice actress Tress MacNeille).

Recurring themes

Although each three-minute episode stands by itself rather than being part of a larger narrative, several themes and events occur through the 20-episode series. Queer Duck reveals his homosexuality to his parents in the first episode. In the course of the series, Queer Duck and Openly Gator get married, and it's revealed that Queer Duck has a lesbian sister. In another episode, he has a brother and a nephew. Queer Duck also meets Santa Claus and attends Mardi Gras. A episode parodying Disneyland featured a turkey who is in the navy named Gobble - the salty sea man. A lesbian is a woman who is romantically and sexually attracted only to other women. ...

Much like The Critic, Queer Duck features numerous cameo appearances by celebrities, whose voices are impersonated by the cast. In addition to Dr. Laura, the Queer Duck gang encounter Bob Hope, Jack Nicholson, Cary Grant, and in particular Barbra Streisand, with whom Queer Duck is obsessed, as well as noted ultra-conservative preacher Jerry Falwell. These celebrities are the only human characters. All other characters are anthropomorphic animals like Duck and his friends, except for the woman Queer Duck sleeps with in the final episode.

Theme Song

Queer Duck, he's intellectual.
Queer Duck, he's homosexual.
Please don't think that he's perverse,
he's the patient's favourite male nurse.
He's okay, he's just fey, cause he's openly gay
He's a truly queer, Queer Duck, Queer Duck! (Queer Duck interjects cliché here)

The expression 'in Queer Street' was used in the UK as of the 1811 edition of Francis Grose's A Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue for someone in financial trouble.
