The Other Howard The Duck

April 20, 1986

So, the Howard the Duck in Lucasfilm's upcoming "Howard the Duck" movie is just a man in a mask, a guy with a duck head stuck on a Sears' Junior Leisure Suit.

My duck in development, the Other Howard, will waddle on his own in a fowl fiberglass body no human could fit. He'll chomp cigars, drool over "female hairless apes" and "waugh" loudly without the need to have a human body shape because some guy is inside. He is a solution to the statement, "You will believe a duck can talk."

Well, I hope the rest of Lucasfilm's movie can rise above the fowl idea of the duck suit. Mine will be a Howard that can fit the bill.

Hunter, a maker and designer of models and miniatures, says he was independently developing his prototype Howard the Duck (also based on the comic book) for use in a short film when he found out about Lucasfilm's venture.
