Can I help you enjoy that Snickers bar?

“Happy peanuts soar over chocolate covered mountaintops and waterfalls of caramel. Prancing nougat in a meadow sings a song of satisfaction to the worrrrrld!….the world.”

duck snickers

Duckshow is proud to be featured on the Snickers website! Can you find the picture on the Snickers website from Duckshow? Of course you can. Turns out-rubber ducks “go quack for snickers.” The Snickers picture was  inspired by this commercial that came out a while back….

After seeing this commercial, a quacky idea was born…..then a photo was inspired and created using rubber ducks (of course).  And a few years later, the photo was spotted by the folks at Snickers and put on their website. I guess the folks at Snickers like rubber ducks as much as rubber ducks like Snickers ;)

Captain Ameriduck!

Captain America duck

The city is forever on the edge between chaos and order. It yearns for a hero. It needs someone to shine a light into the darkness, even when it may seem the darkest of all. It needs a superhero who flaps in the night because crime never sleeps. And that superhero is Captain Ameriduck…fighting felonious fowls for all duck kind!

When Captain Ameriduck throws his mighty shield,
All those who choose to oppose his shield must yield!
If he’s led to a fight and a duel is due,
Then the red and the white and the blue will come through,
When Captain Ameriduck throws his mighty shield!

Captain Ameriduck: “Hmmmmm. Gotham City is quiet here lately. I wonder where all those fowl feathered fiends are hiding??? Oh, I know! They are headed to NYC Comic Con! I must get there before they do! To the Con!!!!”

Quacky Crusaders: “To Comic Con!”

Duck For President!

The Oregon Duck came to New York City recently and took to the streets to garner votes for his presidential campaign. This was his video:

Strangely enough (after viewing this video), I noticed my Oregon CelebriDuck missing from my own rubber duck collection one day only to reappear the next. I thought it was a little strange….but I dismissed it. After all, it was back safe and sound. No harm, no “fowl.” Then I stumbled upon these pictures……Seems my Oregon Duck was out doing a little campaigning for the Oregon Duck!

The Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta

Last Saturday, September 22, The first annual Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta took place at the Harbor’s grand fountain! It was a duck filled day that began with the Duck Beauty Pageant where local businesses decorated their own giant rubber ducks for the coveted golden duck trophy. The giant ducks were then raced in the fountain (as seen below).

The winner of the golden duck trophy was Taco Casa! Congrats to them!

The big event took place a little later. 2,300 baby rubber ducks were tossed into the large fountain-each duck racing to the finish line for their chance to win their sponsors some beautiful prizes. Duckshow didn’t get to attend (this year ;) ), but it was said that it was a sizzling hot Texas day….perfect for a dip in the fountain. Notice the big duck on the sidelines….I’ll bet he was quacking those little ducks on!

Down to the second tier! Go ducks, go! (Some of the racing ducks need a little help as they get sometimes get stuck along the banks ;) ).

There were many winners and the regatta was a great success! In fact, it was such a great success that the annual Regatta will be a two day event next year!  All proceeds from the regatta went to Meals on Wheels and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Over $45,ooo was raised for the charities!

Celebriducks New Duck Factory in NYC!

celebriducks NYC

This just in! CelebriDucks is doing the final production of their Made in America ducks right here in New York City! They will still do all their pre-production in Ohio…..where they opened their first rubber duck factory. However, the final production will happen in the Bronx and the final pad printing will be done at their new NYC facility in Brooklyn. And….this new CelebriDucks NYC factory is the same factory that was originally used to produce Ernie’s rubber duck! Pure serendipity!

Bread Crumbs For All!

Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta

Rockwall duck race

Everyone loves a rubber duck, right? Of course! And here’s one more reason to love them….they help raise money for charities in the form of duck races. Duck races have become quite popular around the world. Chances are, there will be one happening in your city in the warmer months. In this case -deep in the heart of Texas- Rockwall County has created an entire festival around the duck race to help raise money for Boys & Girls Club and Meals on Wheels of Rockwall County. With the support of community sponsors, the Rockwall Rubber Duck Regatta will become an annual community-wide event to raise much needed funds for these two organizations.

Race day (September 22) will begin with a 5K duck dash. Then a “duck fest” with vendors, arts & crafts, jewelry, entertainment, food, and more will take place most of the day. There will also be a duck pageant where jumbo ducks will be decorated by corporate sponsors and judged for a prize ribbons.  Then the ducks will be raced at 1:30 for the covenant Golden Duck Trophy!

Bud Duck’s 3rd 2012 Release!



Wowee! Bud Product has been busy this year! They have released their 3rd series of ducks this year! The designs are insane! That’s why we love Bud so much! The ducks come in special designed boxes to match their design, also.

One thing that I absolutely love about their ducks is the “catch phrases” that come along with them. Here are the ducks’ witty musings (from the new ducks pictured above)…

Solar Duck: “Some like it hot!”

Hipster Duck: “Soho….boho…yo..yo!”

Puff Duck: “Who’s trippin’ now?”

Asteroid Duck: “Outta this world!”

Mulah Duck: “You can never have enough!”

Spiffy Duck: “retro vintage…..AWESOME!”

You can get the ducks now from the usual suspects…Duckshop and Just Ducks.
