Tommy is gone, but that doesn't stop Mike and Kevin from what is now a yearly tradition: a Mighty Ducks horror movie. In Duck Hunter 2: The Hunt is on, we pick up where the first Duck Hunter left off and see the return of horror movie legend McKill. Send us a voicemail! Become a producer of the show!

D2 director Sam Weisman on Kareem, thinking Michael Eisner would have him murdered (Part 2)
In Part 2 of our conversation with D2 director Sam Weisman, he talks about wanting to kill himself after seeing the first edit, why Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is in the film, having to be the person to tell Melissa Etheridge she'd been cut from the movie, the crazy first test screening and much, much more. Show Notes Here are two quick shots from the trailer regarding the beach scene: We talked about the America the Beautiful sequence in Episode 139 with J.A.C. Redford. One of Sam's proudest scenes, the locker room speech: One of the most difficult scenes? The three-bar game between Wolf and Bombay: Emilio's hair as an homage to Pat Riley Kareem just in the movie because Sam wanted to hang with him: George of the Jungle is a classic. Thanks to @quackscuses93 for the #QuackQuestion. A special shoutout because her Twitter bio is "for kids who want to coach." Was any of the tension between the OG Ducks and New Team USA real off-screen? Were there any cliques that formed between the kids who had been there before? #QUACKQUESTIONS— Dani (@quackscuses93) May 19, 2019

D2: The Mighty Ducks director Sam Weisman talks mob connections, idiot PAs, lost footage (Part 1)
Mike, a slightly late Tommy, and Kevin talk with D2: The Mighty Ducks director Sam Weisman in part one of one of the best interviews the show has ever done. In this part 1, Sam talks about how the mob got him to Hollywood, Canadian porn, how a run-in with Steve Brill at a Los Angeles Kings game eventually led to his directing of D2 and the mystery of the idiot production assistant and the lost D2 footage in a rental car. Show Notes Thanks again to Sam Weisman. He's one of the greats. By the way, Sam has a great IMDB photo: Photo by Avnet/Kerner Productions We talked with D2 director of photography Mark Irwin, who got his start in porn, in Episode 65. Is this line change real or part of the re-shoots? The Amazon click-through purchase of the week: A Voice from Old New York: A Memoir of My Youth by Louis Auchincloss.

Mighty Ducks Minute No. 246: The Eden Hall JV’s good times against the Blake Bears
Mike, Tommy and Kevin are back to break down another minute. This time they take a look at the good times during the Blake Bears. How the hell did Luis Mendoza jump over the net? Why is Fulton flexing on dudes away from the play? Answers to those questions and many more. Show Notes Keep clicking through that Amazon link. Great crowd at this JV game. Banks with the classic 90s cut: Here is the full Melrose Place Wikipedia entry. Luis Mendoza's stride: The goalie watching Luis instead of the puck: Is Vladmir Putin the greatest hockey player in the world? 14:7 - Команда Путина и Шойгу победила в гала-матче Ночной хоккейной лиги команду Звезд лиги pic.twitter.com/DlxxxuFBzm— Дмитрий Смирнов (@dimsmirnov175) May 10, 2019 Full highlight video, including him falling on his face when he's waving to the crowd: The kid in the blue sweat jacket bobbing his head too hard: Look in the background and you'll find Fulton checking two people way away from the puck: Orion pulls Julie The Cat after Blake's seventh goal. That's too late. Terrible coaching by Orion. Thanks to @erock3382 for the #QuackQuestion. @QuackAttackPod guess this is sort of a crossover Quack Question courtesy of cable TV. Which feat is more impressive/improbable.

Guest Pod! Be Kind and Rewind talks Mighty Ducks with The Quack Attack
This time, Mike, Tommy and Kevin wander off the pond and straight into another podcast. Be Kind and Rewind joined forces with The Quack Attack to talk about weird moments in the Original Adam Banks, weird Mighty Ducks facts, and the wild lives some of the Mighty Ducks are leading.

Mighty Ducks of Thrones: Who ends up on The Iron Throne?
Mike, Tommy and Kevin return and waste no time using a cheap gimmick to try to get some listens. In this episode they take the Mighty Ducks to the world of Game of Thrones. Who fits in where? Who is dead? Will Julie "The Cat" Gaffney win this just like she wins the rest of our hypothetical contests? Show Notes The link to the trivia pentathlon quiz. The high score right now is 6 out 10, which has been accomplished by multiple people. Final week to get it in. Entries are due by April 24, 2019. Kevin running into a random women wearing a Mighty Ducks jersey in Minneapolis: Lake Calhoun, now called Bde Maka Ska, is the largest lake in Minnesota. There is a park around it. That's nice. Here is Calhoun Lake on the map. If we take that and graft it on Hans' map: It looks like we're looking at either District 6, which would be Hawks territory, or District 5, depending on what side of the lake Kevin's AirBnB was on. In fact, Lake Calhoun is probably the lake Hans refers to when he says "the lake is now the boundary." Bombay's address (450 N. Hennepin Ave.) is northeast of the lake, while Edina is southwest. This is what Tommy is referring to regarding the AAF.

Jack White talks training actors, original Adam Banks, acting in all three Mighty Ducks films (Rebroadcast)
Kevin is still wandering around the streets of Minneapolis in sadness after Texas Tech's loss in the NCAA national championship game and he has our microphones in his condo, so we've got a rebroadcast this week: the first appearance by our great friend Jack White who dished on a little bit of everything. Also Kevin plz come home. Show notes: Paul Michael Glaser in all his glory: Eric Strobel, for those who aren't familiar with him. The original Adam Banks fired a puck at his chest. Touch and Go is a story about an ice hockey star who befriends a troubled kid and his mother after the kid's gang tried to rob him. The plot synopsis for H-E Double Hockey Sticks, taken straight from IMDB: "Griffelkin, a young devil-in-training is sent to the surface of Earth to steal the soul of Dave, a hot shot pro-hockey player aspiring to be the youngest man to win the Stanley Cup." Thanks to @ak2themax for the #QuackQuestion. Here are some pictures Jack sent us: (A team picture with the new members from D2 donning the D-5 jerseys) (Jack with the actor who played a young Gordon Bombay) (Jack, middle, with his ref buddies.

We also get into some D4 talk. Show Notes Support Matt! Go to mattdoherty.net. Matt on Instagram: @archiedohman. Go get Matt's Album, Dignity. You can get the whole thing on iTunes for $9.99.

Mike, Tommy, and Kevin tackle another Mighty Ducks minute. This time it's a breakdown of Gordon Bombay's speech after the U.S.A.'s 12-1 loss to Iceland. Bombay gets challenged by a bunch of 12-year-olds and claps back. Was that the right move? Show Notes Spring is coming. Get your gear from The Quack Attack shop now. Ken Wu's face while everyone else is disgusted: One of two closeups for Goldberg: Little Charlie is crushed: TFW Bombay calls you pathetic, Portman vs. Fulton versions: Donald Trump Jr. vs. Gordon Bombay.

But the "I play for the United States of America" thing didn't happen according to Jack O'Callahan. The 1980 U.S. Olympic team did indeed beat Finland to win the Gold Medal.

What’s behind the Mighty Ducks’ pop culture resurgence?
In the aftermath of the Mighty Ducks' mini reunion, Mike, Tommy and Kevin trace the influx of Ducks stuff in pop culture. Was this inevitable or did have we just witnessed an incredible confluence of events? Also, how much credit should we take for it? Show Notes (Editor's note: Our recording software skipped like four seconds at the beginning when we were introducing Kevin's Kin Token disaster. You can follow his slow-motion disaster in real time here.)  According to their Wikipedia, Wheeling's ECHL team is named the Nailers because of the city's long history of nail manufacturing. The Danny Tamberelli instagram photo with Fulton Reed's jersey in the background:   View this post on Instagram   What a sweet day!!

I recorded it on my phone at 6:30 a.m. The #QuackQuestion of the year nominees (poll is below): Ben Young (with assists from Andy Tattersall and Kristian Garcia): (To Scott Whyte) Why did you decide to stop on the shootout and do a slapshot? (And what was the point of doing a triple deke if you were got to stop and let the goalie reset? And how come it took so long for everyone to know whether or not it went in?) -- Episode 157 @MariaPianelli: (To Adam F. Goldberg) If you could cast one of the Ducks to be in The Goldbergs, who would it be, who would they play, and why? -- Episode 165 @AirLemaire: Assuming that the Ducks beat the Varsity team in the middle of the season in D3, what happens to the Varsity team for the rest of the year? Does their championship streak comes to an end? Is it possible to recover from that loss? -- Episode 167 @StevieYanks: Who was more vital to their team's success: Adam Banks, Juan Morales, The Icebox or Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez -- Episode 174 @prayformilan: Die Hard aficionados strongly believe that the film is a Christmas movie, and Steven E. de Souza (one of the writers) confirmed this. Shouldn’t Quackalytes fight for Mighty Ducks to be considered a Christmas film as well? -- Episode 180   (Editor's Note: You can vote once per hour.) Who had the 2018 #QuackQuestion of the year Ben Young @MariaPianelli @AirLemaire @StevieYanks @Prayformilan Honorable mention Brendan: Why do Bombay's minor-league teammates take his helmet off when it's his knee that is injured? - Episode 151 @cjgjmg: Did Fulton start the rumor of having a football scholarship so people would get off his back about playing hockey. When Bombay asked him he said people talk don't mean nothing. So did he have offers or not? – Episode 157 @Derickbucsnp: Why was Julie the cat ejected against Iceland and Sandersen was not? – Episode 159 Stevie Yanks: What did Bombay choose: breath, blood, or urine? – Episode 164 Quack Question Leaderboard

Looking at the Mighty Ducks movies through Adam Banks’ eyes
Mike, Tommy and Kevin, go back through the Mighty Ducks films -- mostly D1 -- and break it down through Adam Banks' eyes. In the process they realize what a lonely life Banks leads as his new team doesn't accept him and his old team turns on him. Show Notes To be clear: Mike FORGOT an undershirt at Tommy's wedding. He didn't just choose not to wear it. The floss dance has its own Wikipedia page. What a time we live in. Adam Banks, bored after beating the Mighty Ducks, and maybe a little scared of Reilly. The Hawks beat District 5: We talked about why the Hawks didn't play the Mighty Ducks in the first round in Episode 10. Here is the table we came up with based on district location: It was actually Tommy Duncan who gives a weird face as he walks out on Adam Banks: Thanks to Erik for the #QuackQuestion via email: Dear Mike, Tommy, and Kevin, First, congratulations and best wishes to Mike on your marriage! Here is my Quack Question for you... Why does Bombay keep popping aspirins at the first District 5 game against the Hawks in D1? Does he have a headache from all the stress of dealing with kids and having to play against Riley? Or is he paranoid about having a heart attack like the previous District 5 coach? Best Regards, Erik (with a K) Bombay popping aspirin: Gear up for fall at The Quack Attack Shop. Recapping Adam Banks' journey in D1 -He plays with his friends on the Hawks and he dominates. -A weird old guy he's barely heard of rips him away from his friends because the old guy wants Banks to play for his team. The old guy apparently is a former Hawks star. As the adults try to work this out, Banks' dad and coach rip this old guy mercilessly. -In the name of just playing hockey, Banks relents and figures he might be able to learn something from this former star. His friends immediately turn on him. At the same time, his new teammates don't accept him. -Once he finally gets most of his new team to accept him, he gets hurt and misses the rest of the biggest game of his career to that point. After he is injured and carried off the ice, his new teammates immediately forget about him and there is no talk of him at all the rest of the night.
