Quacker is normally getting chased by Tom in the Tom and Jerry series and Jerry is trying to save Quacker from getting eaten by Tom. Another recurring character in the series was Little Quacker the duckling, who was later adapted into the Hanna-Barbera character Yakky Doodle. He appears in Little QuackerJust Ducky, Downhearted Duckling, Southbound Duckling, That's My Mommy, Happy Go Ducky, and The Vanishing Duck. Quacker talks a lot compared to Tom and Jerry. In many shorts, he is the only one who speaks. He's very trusting, even trusting Tom in many situations in which Tom wishes to eat him. He's a friend of Jerry, but unlike Jerry harbors no hard feelings towards Tom. Quacker is often mistaken as appearing in The Duck Doctorbut the Duck appearing in that short is a wild duck.

Trivia

  • He has a girlfriend, Fifi.
  • His voice is a ''duck voice'' similar to Disney's Donald Duck.
  • In The Tom and Jerry Show (1975) episode "The Lost Duckling", he made his only appearance. His looks in this episode are similar, except that unlike other appearances he speaks with a normal voice instead of a "duck voice".
  • That's My Mommy was the only cartoon where Jerry was his enemy (actually, Quacker thought that Jerry was his enemy while in fact he was trying to save him from Tom).
  • He appears in Tom and Jerry in War of the Whiskers under the name "Duckling" and one of the five all-round fighters alongside Tyke, Jerry, Robot Cat and Nibbles, he uses a flight attack with the jump button and punch button for he is all-round and a bit skillful. Unlocked after Defeating Robot Cat as Nibbles. Quacker's punches are similar to Tyke's and is very easy to defeat. in the PS2 version of War of the Whiskers, he and Nibbles' emotions are mixed up but this is corrected in the Xbox and Gamecube versions. When He is a CPU in a Melee match, he only punches the other AI characters once which leads to him getting punched back.
  • He attempted suicide twice: The first was in Downhearted Duckling and in That's My Mommy though Tom intervened.
  • Quacker also appears in Tom and Jerry: Fists of Furry as Duckling. He is only fought 3 times in Single player.
  • Originally Quacker was supposed to appear in Tom and Jerry 2021 but then the company decided to not add him there anyway for unknown reasons.
