Trivia / Duck Dodgers

  • The Cast Showoff: Queen Tyr'ahnee singing Blues in the Night in "Talent Show a Go-Go" let's Tia Carrere show off her singing prowess.
  • Channel Hop: The show was forced to air its last few episodes on sister network Boomerang after getting screwed over and cancelled by Cartoon Network.
  • Defictionalization: Dodgers and X-2 became the mascots of the Mars rovers Opportunity and Spirit, respectively.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes:
    • Seasons 1 & 2 were released on DVD, but that was in 2013 and there seems to be no interest in releasing season 3. And good luck finding all the season 3 episodes online anywhere. The fact that the show hasn't aired on TV (at least in the United States) since 2010 doesn't help either. Finally averted now that the third season is available on DVD as of 2020.

    • The third season is currently available through Boomerang's subscription service.
    • The show is one of the only Looney Tunes properties to not currently be available on HBO Max.
  • The Other Darrin: In her titular episode, the New Cadet was voiced by Kelly Ripa. When she returned for Til Doom Do Us Part, her lines were supplied by Vanessa Marshall.
  • Parody Assistance: Genndy Tartakovsky helped write "Samurai Quack" and both he and Mako provide voices.
  • Post-Script Season: The "Of Course You Know This Means War and Peace" was written to wrap up the series if need be (hence, say, Dodgers learning to appreciate the Cadet), but more episodes were ordered.
  • Screwed by the Network: The last episodes of season 3 didn't even air on Cartoon Network, as the series was abruptly pulled and moved to sister network Boomerang. Before then, it aired reruns on Cartoon Network at 12:30am on Fridays. It was dropped completely when CN made the late night/early morning hours a repeat of their Fridays block.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Dodgers and X-2 are both voiced by Joe Alaskey. It's a case that sticks out in which they both interact with each other in a constant basis. Alaskey also voices Rocky, Hubie, and Bertie.
    • Michael Dorn voices all the Centurions and Klunkins (minus Sa'am).
  • What Could Have Been: The show falls into this. According to Bob Bergen, after Space Jam, there was once a Duck Dodgers movie in development where he would have voiced both Dodgers and Marvin, and the Cadet was not in the show. Said plans didn't go through, and the TV series was greenlit instead. However, clips from the unproduced movie made it into the show's Title Sequence, as confirmed by Bergen himself in a forum post (which confused some fans who didn't know of the original plans, especially given the differing animation styles).
