Comedy-adventure about a fast-talking, cigar-chomping, beer-loving duck from another dimension who somehow winds up in Cleveland and has run-ins with punk rockers, motorcycle mamas and the all-powerful overlord who make him wish he were back on his own duck planet.
Howard, a wise-cracking duck from outer space, is brought to earth by a science experiment gone wrong. He attempts to fit in with his new surroundings while romancing a young punk-rock singer, but finds his new-found happiness threatened by the Dark Overlords who were also freed by the ill-fated experiment.
