Pictures and text are taken from the books "Why a Duck?" (1971) and "Hooray for Captain Spaulding!" (1974), both edited by Richard J. Anobile. .au files were taken from the World Wide Web. .wav sounds were sampled with my own equipment from the MCA Universal videotape releases of the Paramount Pictures Animal Crackers (1930) and Duck Soup (1933), and the MGM Picture A Night at the Opera (1935). The song, Lydia the Tatooed Lady, was sampled from the MGM Picture At the Circus (1939), as shown on Cinemax.
