Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The daily cartoon series Sitting Ducks was based on the famously whimsical paintings of Martin Bedard, who in the 1980s issued several portraits of funny ducks in various black-comedy situations (for example, commenting upon a sudden rash of bullet holes). The feathered hero, Bill, was a misunderstood resident of Ducktown. Ever the nonconformist, Bill befriended another misfit eccentric, Aldo the Alligator from Swampwood. The message was that it's okay to be different, even when it means ignoring the rules of nature and cavorting with friends who might otherwise have you for lunch. Produced in 2001 and animated in the 3-D CGI process, the 26 11-minute episodes of Sitting Ducks began their American run over the Cartoon Network on May 6, 2003.
