Happy New Year! We are now “in the future” – when you hear the sound of the gong, it will be the year 2018. And to celebrate a new day, the new week, a new month and the new year we present part 2 of the original Michael Maltese storyboard to Duck Dodgers and the Return of the 24 1/2 Century. It’s been fascinating to compare this with the final film, re-written and directed by Chuck Jones.

Post-Script: Mike Kazaleh obtained the The Return of Duck Dodgers storyboard board while on staff at Tiny Toon Adventures in 1990. Kazaleh co-wrote a “sequel” to Duck Dodgers for the series, Duck Dodgers Jr. (excerpt is embed below). He also designed a few characters and created these model sheets – with “attitudes stolen from the original” film.
