'''''The Duck''''' is a cancelled animated/live-action film created by Uli Meyer, developed in 1998.
Set in the real world, it had a concept similar to the film ''Space Jam'', which Uli Meyer had worked on beforehand (which also explains protagonist' resemblance to Daffy Duck in the test footage, even though he doesn't look like that at all in the concept art).
The storyline involved a scientist making a formula to solve devastation in the world; however, his pet duck ends up sampling some of the formula, which transforms him into a cartoon duck.
The movie never went into production due to funding being pulled at the last minute, though test footage was produced to help pitch the project.
There were only 2 minutes of the test footage created for the film available online, as well as a separate animated clip. The test footage was 8 minutes long <ref>[http://overlookedtoon.tumblr.com/post/147146634696/the-duck-test-footage-from-uli-meyer-german-born "The Duck production information"]. From the ''Overlookedtoon'' blog, explaining the information known about the test footage. July 27th, 2016. [http://archive.is/sCejQ Archived]</ref>, involving the scenes seen in the released stills.
On the other hand, the other clip had gone missing. It was available on YouTube for some time before becoming a private link. It involved a Jessica Rabbit-esque character interacting with a live-action male actor. Not much was known about the dialogue, as there is no source describing what happened in the scene.
On October 3, 2017, Uli Meyer, the creator of the footage as well as the entire concept, uploaded the complete test footage to his Vimeo account.
