The Plucky Duck Show is a short-lived spin-off to Tiny Toon Adventures, with all of the episodes centering on Plucky Duck. The show ran for thirteen episodes from September to December 1992.

Out of the thirteen episodes, only the first one, "The Return of Batduck", an homage and tie-in to the 1992 Tim Burton film Batman Returns, was completely original to the series. All of the show's remaining episodes were compilations of shorts produced for Tiny Toon Adventures, though some shorts aired on The Plucky Duck Show first.

The show's theme song is set to the same tune as the Tiny Toon Adventures theme song, but with different lyrics to suit Plucky as the center of attention. The lyrics to the theme song can be seen below.

After the show's cancellation, "The Return of Batduck" was added as a regular Tiny Toon Adventures episode in reruns and syndication, with several bits and pieces cut in order to fit in the Tiny Toon Adventures opening credits. The Plucky Duck Show's formula was re-attempted several years later with the Animaniacs characters, Pinky and the Brain, with better results, as Pinky and the Brain lasted 65 episodes, all of which were original material instead of shorts previously used on Animaniacs.

Theme Song Lyrics

Singers: You're lucky, It's Plucky!

Plucky: I'm absolutely ducky!

Singers: Other shows seem yucky

Now that Plucky's on the air!

Plucky: I'm Wacky, I'm Quacky!

Singers: He's an ego-maniacy,

Hamton plays the lackey

of this duck extraordinaire!

Who knows the way to close his endless babbling beak?

Drop an anvil down upon his feathery physique!

Toast him, roast him,

the show will still be most him,

Singers & Plucky: It's The Plucky Duck Show and it's on each week!

Singers: His antics are frantic,

at times he gets romantic,

Plucky: My talent's so gigantic,

it'll burst from your TV!

Singers: The writers are hackers,

the artists all went crackers,

the actors are yakkers,

Plucky: But don't complain, it's free.

Singers: Plucky goes to Acme Loo to learn to be a star,

there're other Toonsters at the school,

Plucky: But who cares who they are?

Singers: So enjoy, don't be coy,

and don't fall for a decoy,

It's The Plucky Duck Show, come and laugh along!

Plucky: I also wrote this song!
