Paramount is making tentative plans later this year to release a DVD of Queer Duck, the animated series that stars the voice of Jim J. Bullock ("Monroe" of Too Close For Comfort) in the title role. The show was created by none other than Mike Reiss, who has written for Not Necessarily the News and Sledge Hammer!, wrote and Executive Produced The Simpsons for a while, and created The Critic as well. Queer Duck started out first as a webtoon, but also Showtime has aired it following right after episodes of Queer As Folk.
Among the star-studded voice cast you'll also find Billy West ("Fry" of Futurama) as "Bi-Polar Bear," Kevin Michael Richardson ("The Joker" on The Batman) as "Openly Gator," Maurice LaMarche ("Brain" of Pinky and the Brain) as both "Oscar Wildcat" and "Mr. Duckstein," and Estelle Harris ("Mrs. Costanza" on Seinfeld) as "Mrs. Duckstein." The theme song is sung by RuPaul.
A DVD release is being considered by Paramount Home Entertainment, we've found out. No release date has been set yet, nor are any other details available just yet. But we wanted to pass along the heads-up. Stay tuned and we'll keep you updated!
