A Miss Mallard Mystery is a Chinese-Canadian mystery animated series produced by Cinar and Shanghai Animation Film Studio for the Teletoon network and OTV (Shanghai Media Group),[2] loosely based on the Robert Quackenbush book series The Miss Mallard Mysteries. Each episode focuses on Miss Mallard and her nephew Willard Widgeon as they visit various places around the world, solving mysteries. All characters in the show are ducks or resemble ducks.

Plot[edit]

The famous "ducktective", Miss Mallard, from the children's books, stars in her own TV series solving mysteries all over the world with her nephew, Willard. No matter where Miss Mallard and her nephew travel, they are inevitably caught up in the most intriguing investigations. Creative and… More endlessly resourceful, Miss Mallard's capable wings can transform a hairpin, a parasol, or a handkerchief into the most unconventional crime-fighting tools. Uncovering clues while escaping suspicious accidents and avoiding mysterious disasters can be tough work, but Miss Mallard always catches her duck! Filled with clues and "hidden evidence", each mystery encourages its viewers to follow the clues and solve the mystery with Miss Mallard.

  • Miss Marjorie Mallard - World-famous "ducktective".
  • Willard Widgeon - Miss Mallard's accident-prone nephew and member of the Swiss police.
