**** Then couldn't they have had the crossover episode happen in 20th/21st century during the timeframe ''before'' Dodgers was frozen, so that they could say it was a prequel to the series proper? Sure, they'd need to find another excuse for the uniforms to get switched (since Dodgers doesn't get his space uniform until after he was thawed out), but at least it would make more sense than the Green Lanterns all staying the same age for three hundred or so years.

** I'd say it's a mix of RuleOfCool, RuleOfFunny and Rule of Recognition:
*** The Legion of Superheroes aren't one-tenth as well-known as the Green Lantern Corps, and using them would have sort of spoiled the joke -- far as your average viewer were concerned, they could just as easily have been original characters invented for the show.
*** Using the Lantern Corps makes the jokey crossover a lot clearer, not to mention the space-based and alien-heavy Corps fits fairly well in the world of Duck Dodgers. And, well, for better or worse, Hal Jordan is the most iconic and recognized Green Lantern, so if they're going to do a crossover anyway, might as well get the main Green Lantern.
*** While they could have done a time-travel episode, that would have raised a few too many niggles, since Dodgers is already supposed to be from the past, and it would have added unnecessary complications. Besides -- "Dodgers travels back in time and meets Green Lantern" is nowhere near as funny as "Dodgers happens to get his uniform clean at the same place as Hal Jordan."

* Speaking of the Green Lanterns...wouldn't most--if not ''all''--of the members featured (looking at you, Hal Jordan!) have expired/retired long before the events of the episode, seeing as the show takes place in the distant future and ''not'' the 20th/21st centuries? Wouldn't it have made more sense to either use new Green Lantern characters, have Dodgers travel back in time to meet them, or have him meet the Legion of Superheroes instead.

*** Perhaps the adjective is a sub-ranking within the broader rank of Space Cadet... [[RecycledInSpace because it's in SPACE!]] You'd start out as a ''Hopeful'' Trainee at Space Academy, then advance to ''Wide-Eyed'' Young Space Cadet, ''Eager'' Young Space Cadet, ''Plucky'' Space Cadet, and so on up the ranks to ''Daring'' Captain, ''Adventurous'' Captain, and ''Fearless'' Captain.) Aw, I MadeMyselfSad now that RealLife military titles are so ''bland.''

** That ''would'' explain quite a bit...
* Why did Hal Jordan take his Green Lantern uniform to the cleaners? It's pure energy generated from his ring. He could just will it clean.

* How this show ever got cancelled. Were the people in charge of Cartoon Network at the time afraid of money and/or success?

* In the episode where Cadet touches Moognesiam and becomes a huge buff steroid fueled mass of muscle. I notice in one scene he rips his shirt off revealing two large nipple piercings. Does that mean that cadet actually wears giant nipple rings on a regular basis? This could go into nightmare fuel...
