"It’s just a boring old orange!"
  — Duck

Duck, Duck Guy or Bird Guy is a dark green puppet and one of the main protagonists of Don't Hug Me I'm Scared along with Red Guy and Yellow Guy. He is voiced by Baker Terry and has a lightly auto-tuned voice.

Before his official name was revealed, it was unknown what kind of bird he was, but he was commonly assumed by fans to be a duck, and nicknamed "Robin", "Birdman", "Bird Puppet" and "Crowe". However, in the 4th episode - when Red Guy stumbles upon the crude remake of the first episode - he is represented by a living duck. It was finally confirmed by CGI Designer Jack Sachs that he is indeed a duck.[1]

Appearance

He is a dark green duck with a yellow beak and legs, wearing a brown blazer with a red handkerchief in one of his pockets. From the second episode and on, he wears brown corduroy shorts. He didn't wear any pants in the first Don't Hug Me I'm Scared episode, however. He owns a pair of glasses and a hat, although he is never seen wearing them.

Personality

He seems to be the second most intelligent out of the trio, capable of forming complex ideas about the concept of time. However, his intelligence seems to vary between episodes, for example, he mistakes a butterfly for a "pesky bee" in Episode 3. He is also very talkative, arguably the most talkative among the three friends.

He appears to enjoy eating (raw) chicken and eggs, even though he is a duck . He also appears to be interested in technology, as seen in the second and fourth episode and also in fashion as he his rather neatly dressed and by his interest in the digital style in Episode 4.

In Episode 4, he seems shocked when Colin mentions the word "time", which might hint to him having Chronophobia after the events that took place in Episode 2. This is further evidenced in the interview with It's Nice That, where after he was asked 'what happened after the olden days?' he replied 'Time! Time! Time! Time!'.

He can be considered critical as he questioned the idea of time in Episode 2 and rejected the ideas of The Healthy Band in Episode 5. He's also seems the most arrogant and self absorbed of the group as seen in Wakey Wakey when he called their sad house and Yellow Guy's birthday buckles "rubbish".

In Episode 5 he becomes more and more annoyed and suspicious of the teachers saying "Something is wrong" and eventually grows tired of it all and runs away.

Duck seems to be the only professional 'actor' as he is shown to over dramatize things and speak in a slightly exaggerated tone, as if reading from a script. This theory is further proved as he attempts to leave the set in Episode 5.

Story

Duck appears as part of the main trio of puppets in all the Episodes of Don't Hug Me I'm Scared.

He is tormented by a sketchbook in Episode 1 and was rapidly aged to the point of decay by Tony the clock in Episode 2 along with the others in the trio.

He goes on a picnic with his friends in Episode three where exclusively raw chicken and eggs are eaten, despite him being a duck. When Yellow guy goes missing, he is reluctant to search for him but goes with Red Guy at the end of the Episode to surprise his friend with the last boiled egg. This gesture is quickly squashed when Duck squats the bug inside of the egg and calls it a 'pesky bee', one of his most memorable quotes.

Duck is further tormented by Colin the computer in Episode 4 when subjected to high simulation to the point of torture but, like Yellow Guy, appears to be unaffected.

When Red Guy leaves the 'show' for Episode 5, Duck is the first to realize something is wrong and attempts to contact him through the red phone in the kitchen setting. He attempts to escape the show in the same episode but is put under anesthetic and wakes up tied to a surgeon table. His organs are forcefully removed and tasted by a large can. These organs, once in cans are eaten by his friend Yellow Guy.

At the end of the 6th episode, he appears to be taking Yellow Guy's place in the 2nd episode (saying the line "Fish on my tray(?)!" while holding a tray with fish on it). He can also be seen as a digital block from the 4th episode when teachers start to appear uncontrollably. When Red Guy alters the timeline, Duck is appeared alive again at the table, this time, he is his favorite color, and, like the rest of his friends, now has freedom, and has never died.
