Plucky Duck is a hyper-active and egocentric young duck.
He's lovable due to his innate wackiness and his tragic and
comic flaws. Plucky is driven by blind ambition. He
has big dreams of wealth, fame and power. But he's so desperate
to get them that he always falls victim to his own wild schemes.
Plucky has the uncensored mind of a child; he's all selfishness
and irrational imagination. Plucky always thinks he knows
best or thinks he is the best. He always has an angle, always
has a scheme to dodge work or responsibility. He rarely
studies and finishes his homework five minutes before the
bell, if at all. He is easily frustrated and quick to give
up. He can be paranoid, thinking everybody's out to get
him. He's insanely jealous, both of Buster's coolness and of
Monty's bank account.
Plucky thinks he's just as smart as Buster, or even smarter,
but while Buster wins out in every situation, Plucky inevitably
screws up. But Plucky never gives up because he is devoid
of any objective self-knowledge. He's a smorgasbord of emotions,
all of them beyond his control. He is jealous, excitable,
miserable, vengeful... all in a kaleidoscopic way, without
a beat between conflicting emotions.
Plucky envisions himself as a crusader for what's good;
that is, what's good for Plucky Duck. He wants to be a star
and would do anything to take over Buster's hosting chores.
He often stars in movie and television parodies when he's
not acting as the "Toxic Revenger" or cajoling his pal Hamton
into some lame-brained scheme. Plucky imagines himself to be
brilliantly adept at everything, yet he constantly overestimates
his own abilities and falls flat on his bill.
Whenever Plucky is attacked or in an explosion, his beak
is rearranged on his head. A strong sneeze can also send
his beak flying. Feathers fly when he's furious. And when
his temper explodes, he breaks into wild 'quacking fits'.
Plucky is a fast talker, but the only character he can con
is the most gullible character in Acme Acres, Hamton. Buster
is wise to Plucky, but will sometimes play along just to
turn the tables. Invariably, Plucky ends up as the victim
of his own con.
"Give me a break!"
"Just my luck!"
