"The Return of Batduck" is the 84th aired episode of Tiny Toon Adventures, but actually originally produced and aired as the series premiere of The Plucky Duck Show. It aired as a prime-time special on Fox to promote the release of the film Batman Returns.


After a ridiculous attempt to establish his own show, Plucky wants to be in Batman Returns. He goes with Hamton to the studio to talk with Tim Burton. With difficulty, they make it to his office. Tim Burton is not willing to give Plucky a screen test, but Plucky manages to convince him. Plucky and Hamton ready themselves with their Batduck and Decoy costumes and props. His screen test is a disaster, but he gets his part. At the studio, Plucky realises he's being used as a stunt duck and quits to resume his previous show.
