Proposed merge[edit]

This article needs to be merged with the general Duck Dodgers article as the entirety of it is duplicated.

Please sign your posts on talk pages, user Yes, something should be done, and a merge is one possibility. Andrewa 19:12, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
Oppose the merge proposal. As a Hugo award winner and a frequent mention in lists of the funniest cartoons of all time, this particular cartoon should have its own article. Andrewa 03:03, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
Support the merge proposal. The information is redundant and there is not enough unique material to justify a seperate page. This viewpoint is supported by the fact that said material is not there and the article is mostly just a duplicate. 17:15, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
Comment: The article is growing. That's what stubs are for. Andrewa 20:01, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Harry Love[edit]

Any chance there will be a separate Harry Love page for the animator of this cartoon and disambiguation? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:57, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Plot copied from[edit]

I've removed the notice that stated that the plot details were copied from the Duck Dodgers article, it's not necessary in terms of the GFDL and I think this note is sufficient.

The plot section also needs a refactor IMO, which I'll do as I find time. Andrewa 06:02, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:DuckDodgersTitleCard.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:DuckDodgersTitleCard.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Hugo award winner?[edit]

I'm lost. I can't find internal supporting evidence that the cartoon won a Hugo. The article to which both this article and the category in the footer point back to states it was a nominee not a winner. Specifically, I'm looking at the intro to the document which states, "Winning titles are listed first, with other nominees listed below," and the section which shows "DDit24.5C" below the winner for 2004. Could someone please point out what I'm missing? (If I'm correct than also the category for Hugo Award Winners needs fixing). --Aladdin Sane (talk) 02:08, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

I'll go you one better: From their official site]. It leaves this short as nominated but losing to George Pal's War of the Worlds. So I'd say that statement is in error. --Tbrittreid (talk) 22:50, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
I've removed the category. If anyone knows of a category for nominees please add it. —Aladdin Sane (talk) 19:25, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
