* AdaptationalHeroism: While not a character. Ducktown in the original version is a place where alligators deceive ducks to fatten up and not fly. In the cartoon series Ducktown is an actual city for ducks and has not connection to the alligators.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The entire show is a massive metaphor for adult daily life in the modern United States, with quite a lot of the subtle humor going over the heads of kids, who just think it's a funny show with ducks and alligators. Specifically:
** Racial divide in the United States is heavily satirized, with ducks and alligators segregated on either sides of a lake and encouraged to be enemies. In the show, the concept of a duck and an alligator being best friends - despite the former being the prey of the either - is constantly tested.
** Bill's "friends", Ed, Oly and Waddle are jobless, immature, obnoxious, constantly broke and frequently hungry (often pillaging Bill's fridge for food) satirizing lazy, young adult potheads. They are also depicted as racist, constantly questioning Bill and Aldo's controversial friendship and at times even encouraging Bill to terminate it.
** Characters such as Raoul the crow and Fred the penguin, both of who don't fit well into duck society and culture and can come off as an annoyance, are also metaphors for immigrants in the United States. In fact, most of the population of Ducktown in general is depicted as clueless, self-absorbed and shallow.

*** Bill's "friends", Ed, Oly and Waddle are jobless, immature, obnoxious, constantly broke and frequently hungry (often pillaging Bill's fridge for food) satirizing lazy, young adult potheads. They are also depicted as weirdly racist, constantly questioning Bill and Aldo's controversial friendship and at times even suggesting that Bill terminate it.
