The series premiered in 1979.
The series takes place in an anthropomorphic
universe, in which Canardo, a scruffy duck character (Canard is
French for Duck), has a career as a private investigator. He is
not the (stereo)typical, hardboiled gumshoe at his job, he is
often hurled in over his head, he smokes and drinks a lot, and
he is sometimes seemingly killed on his missions!
