What's it about

"The Duck Factory" concerns the comic adventures of the employees of a hard-luck animation company (nicknamed "The Duck Factory" because its star cartoon character is a duck on a network TV show that's always on the verge of being cancelled).

In the opening segment, young Skip Tarkenton (Jim Carrey) arrives in Hollywood, fresh from a midwestern town, to accept a job from the company's owner, Buddy Winkler. Unluckily, Winkler has just died, so Skip stays on and soon finds himself the unwilling producer of the TV series and involved with the following employees of "The Duck Factory."

Sheree Winkler (Teresa Ganzel), the deceased boss' widow, had known Buddy only three weeks before he died. Reared in Las Vegas by her manicurist mother, Sheree is now owner and self-hired receptionist of "The Duck Factory."

Brooks Carmichael, Jr. (Jack Gilford), is aging fast, drinking a bit too much and sleeping a lot. Still, he is, and has been for many years, a brilliant director and is Skip's boyhood hero.

Andrea Lewin (Nancy Lane), who wears only jeans and T-shirts, is the assistant film editor (assistant only because Winkler wouldn't pay her a higher salary). She falls in love with Skip on sight and therefore treats him like dirt.

Marty Fenneman (Jay Tarses) is the company's gag writer. He has done everything remotely connected to comedy writing, including soft-porn comedy movies and 250 funny cocktail mapkins.

Aggie Aylesworth (Julie Payne) is the studio production manager who can probably squeeze a dollar tighter than Winkler could and who thinks she should be in charge.

Roland Culp (Clarence Gilyard, Jr.) is the only black storyboard man in the business who has a degree in dentistry.

Wally Wooster (Don Messick), the legendary voice-over man with a repertoire of over 600 voices, doesn't know which of the 600 is his own.
