This week, I'm looking at another possibly forgotten USA cartoon from the'90s. Erik Larsen hasn't hidden his disappointment with the Savage Dragon cartoon, but is it so bad?

Duckman: Edgy, Politically Incorrect, Forgotten

 


Is there anything animated from the '90s I can't exploit for an article? I revisit the USA Network's Duckman, a show that's seemingly been erased from the history of adult animation.
