Jim Carrey Online's video clip area has been updated. This time with the first episode (Goodbye Buddy, Hello Skip) from the comedy series "The Duck Factory". The episode aired on April 12, 1984.
Midwesterner Skip Tarkenton, a young, aspiring artist-animator, arrives in Hollywood to find employment at the Duck Factory, headed by Buddy Winkler. However, Skip finds the Buddy has died and he joins the mourners. Among them are: Mrs. Winkler, Buddy's shapely, dizzy widow, who doesn't take mourning seriously since she only knew Buddy for two weeks; Aggie Aylesworth, the business manager who is determined to take over the Duck Factory; Brooks Carmichael, an aging but gifted cartoonist who sleeps a lot; Andrea Lewin, film editor looking to do greater things in life and who has a crush on Skip; Marty Fenneman, a writer who'd rather be a comedian; Roland Culp, a talented animator who has a degree in dentistry; Wally Wooster, master of 600 voices who forgets which of the 600 is his own.
When Aggie's first meeting with the television network causes the Duck Factory's cartoon, "Dippy Duck," to be cancelled, Skip is drafted by the staff to be producer in order to save the firm and the employees' jobs.
