    Do you remember when the duck used to light up a ciggie as he walked off? Imagine the uproar these days if it was kept!

    Yeah it stopped being used around 1991. He didn't light it up but he was puffing away as he walked off. Hopefully ch 9 will show some old games and you can see it there.

    People used to say it was steam arising from the ducks head for being angry..but i know (friend worked on ch 9 production team in the 80s) told me it was a bit of subliminal advertising when B&H used to be the major sponsors.

    It worked casue everytime i saw the animation i would want to spark up!

    I always thought that smoke was just the duck being mad he didn't get any runs, it was cigarette smoke? I remember it...I just thought it was something different. I miss the old duck bring him back...or at least make that new one better.

    can't have been too subliminal - no-one knows what he was doing :confused:

    It would have been good during the VB series to have him stagger off holding a VB.
