What's with the green duck???

Is it a St. Paddy's day thing gone awry??

Kyo's gator has no color at all. The Duck is green…. Logic would conclude the duck stole the color from the gator!

I thought it was a daffy duck recolour.

And here I thought this was another complaint about the upcoming name change.

The duck has always been this way. He's also a famous drunkard but according to Wowio he's currently going through the 12 step program.

So green and drunk = St. Patrick's day? You might be on to something here.
Those were my two cents.

Well, I for one say it's high time we shake things up a little bit.

What we need is edgy! Risqué! Bold! …and other words that I don't want to bother looking up in my thesaurus.

Might I suggest… a blue duck?

Gentlemen, gentlemen, allow me to shed some light on the subject. I think you'll all agree that all the mascot needs is just a little feminine touch…

You know, I've always wondered.. is there a Drunk Duck comic? Like, the Drunk Duck? I never actually thought to look for it, nor have I ever considered that the two characters next to the sites logo may be from said comic.

Way back there were a couple of strips of “Duck and Quail”, but I suspect they're lost to history now. :]

Not sure how many that were made, not many i think, but i have a few of them saved. Quality wise I'd say they were overall pretty lame but.. kinda fun i suppose.



I'm gonna go and post up the ones i have here:

Gah. That comic wasted a perfectly good punchline! I was SO hoping the “Down Duck” joke was going to be about the website being down every month and a half.

Let us turn back the pages of time to the golden age of cartoon ducks.

When Donald or Daffy would get sick they would turn green. A few cartoons even showed Donald getting drunk and he turned green.

Drunk Duck has always been a sick duck. Therefore Druck Duck is green.

But what I want to know is viaduct? Why not a goose?

Speaking of cartoon ducks, I may have the answer.
Behold, Count Duckula, along with our faithful mascot:



notice a family resemblance?

It all fits… The Duck DD is named for was actually a DEAD duck. But it looked drunk I think…? Anyway, Count Duckula is also dead, and gets very drunk from blood, so he prefers tomato juice.
Is our Duck actually a vampire? O_O

I know this duck is a vamp…

Thanks Oz, now I have a new fear. A fear of blood sucking vampire ducks roaming my neighborhood in packs. Great.

Haha, thanks Vega!

It's always disturbed me slightly how the logo duck kind of has some arm muscles going on. I keep imagining him in a wifebeater and he gets like 5x more sinister.

The Duck DD is named for was actually a DEAD duck. But it looked drunk I think…?



That image is from the very first site design and had a DEAD duck in it as that was the original concept name of the site. “Dead Duck.” However the domain deadduck.com was taken so it was changed to “drunk” as the image kinda looked like a drunk duck aswell and the domain drunkduck.com WAS available.

The duck is green because it is supposed to be a MALLARD duck. Early art of the duck even have the white neck line (like the above comic) but was later removed on more recent artwork.
