Released in 1974, Dirty Duck (aka Down and Dirty Duck) was an attempt to ride on Ralph Bakshi's coattails after the success of Fritz the Cat. Produced by Roger Corman, directed and animated by Charles Swenson (Rugrats, Fieval Goes West, Strawberry Shortcake), voiced and soundtracked by Flo & Eddie (The Turtles, The Mothers, and occasionally T. Rex)- how the hell do people not know about this movie?! No accounting for taste, I guess.

Dirty Duck is the story of Willard Isenbaum, a sexually frustrated insurance adjuster who inherits a pervy duck from a tattoo artist named Painless Martha. The Duck (known only as "Duck") takes it upon himself to get Willard laid and hijinx ensue. The pair embark on a psychedelic journey involving inner-city hustlers and homos, racist cops, man-hating lesbos, singing hookers and oh, so much more. This movie has something to offend and entertain just about everyone and I can't recommend it enough!
