Steven Spielberg Presents The Plucky Duck Show, usually referred to as The Plucky Duck Show, is an animated television series created by Warner Bros. and a short-lived spin-off compilation of Tiny Toon Adventures, the first collaboration between Steven Spielberg and the newly reborn Warner Bros. Animation studio, but concentrating attention mainly on Plucky Duck. The show ran for 13 episodes from September 19, 1992 to December 12, 1992.
Of the 13 episodes, only the first one (entitled "The Return of Batduck" in homage to the movie Batman Returns) was original to the series. All remaining episodes of the show were compilations of shorts produced for Tiny Toon Adventures, though some of the shorts were first aired on The Plucky Duck Show first (most notably a segment from the episode "Toons From the Crypt", which was unaired until Tiny Toons reruns appeared on Nickelodeon).
The theme song for the show is a rendition of the Tiny Toon Adventures theme, set to the same music, but with Plucky himself as the subject of the song. Some of the lyrics were reused in the Tiny Toon Adventures episode, "It's a Wonderful Tiny Toon Christmas Special".
After the show was canceled, the Batduck episode was edited and added in as an episode of Tiny Toon Adventures. The show's formula was attempted again, more successfully, several years later when the supporting characters from Animaniacs (Steven Spielberg's next collaboration with Warner Bros. Animation), Pinky and the Brain were also given their own show.
