Down (in) the Drain

Every day, Wilbur the duckling gets a bath, and he takes to it like… a… thing that, um… a duck might… enjoy… a lot. There’s probably some catchier way to put that.



  1. Splish splash, I was taking a bath; Long about a Saturday night; A rub duck, just relaxing in the tub…

  2. *begins snapping fingers in time to the song*

  3. Trying to scratch an itch with webbed feet must really suck… 😛

  4. He is so big they may want to try the bathtub. He can swim better and stretch out his legs and little wings.

  5. They have pretty sharp little nails on the end of those webbed feet.

    Inquiring minds want to know, when does “peeppeeppeep” become QUACK?

  7. Happy little peeppeeps..
    I really hate those recorded Easter Chick stuffed toys-the chickie is screaming “Helphelp! Coldhungry mommymommymommy!!!”
    Yes,I understand baby chick and know “Help” in many animal languages

  8. My nieces used to have a couple ducks. Once, when they were going out of town for a few days, they asked my parents to ducksit. My dad pulled out an old kiddie pool and filled it with water and let the ducks swim around in it. You should hear that grouchy old man go on about how happy it made the ducks. “Those ducks have a different quack according to how they FEEL!”

  9. Coffee Cup (now with more bunnies) says:

    Get Wilbur a bigger sink! It’s like a human trying to swim in the bathtub.

  12. You absolutely fleur me! (sorry to any french folk for mangling pronunciation)

  13. BATH. TUB. BATH. TUB If wee all chant it, Wilber will wuv us!

    They webbed skrtiches killed me!

  15. Gaw, I miss mah duck.

  16. oh my, what wuz I thinkin’?? Things sure can get mixed up on the journey from brain to fingers!
    OK *typing v e r y s l o w l y*
    If we all chant it, Wilbur will wuv us.

  17. “But the one little duck with the feather on his back, he led the others with a quack quack quack!”

  18. Not to worry Mamabear, there’s still “goose, goose…”

    On second thought, I was thinking you meant a rubber duckie when I wrote that, but then realised he/she may have been a real swimming duck, in which case I don’t mean any disrespect for your loss.

  19. He’s a wee duck, so it worked…

  20. What you said reminds me of some previous Cute Overload commentroversy about a dog that was going to go skydiving with its owner, in a harness and everything. Somebody said it was cruel and animals can’t tell you when they’re freaked out, then several other people were like, “Um, no, dogs are perfectly capable of telling humans when they’re freaked out.”

  21. I was going to say the same thing! Still, what a happy duckie!

  22. oh my god !!!

  23. I was going to say the same thing too! Or rather, three!

  24. Ducking a$$-shaking at 0:24 had me mesmerized.

  25. He’s fantastically cute, but I’d get him a baby pool cuz I’m a bit queasy about critter poo in my kitchen sink … don’t know about you guys. I’m sure his poo is very cute, but … gack! But otherwise … y’know, squee ‘n’ stuff.

  26. Mary (the first) says:

    “thinkin’ every thing was all riiiight”…

  27. Mary (the first) says:

    Me four!! Needs more room to paddle!

  28. Me too. I was about to say:

    We’re going to need a bigger sink

  29. Wilbur’s really taking to this. Like a duck to, you know.

  30. HA!

  31. I second the awesomeness, fleurdamour.

  32. “We’re gonna need a bigger [tub/ sink/ pool/ etc] !!!” 🙂

    Clappy things! (Wait, do I have to speak in emoticons here/)

  34. Wilbur looks and sounds just like my little yellow rubber ducky, but he’s fluffier.

  35. The tail fwippage… it slays me..

  36. i keep looking at his redonk little winglets and thinking “thousand-mile migration, on THOSE things?” this ducklet is walking to canadia.

  37. The wing-nubs were to die for. But the almost instant underwater dive was my favorite! …like a duck to water!!

  38. Swimmin around the sink, he looks more like a goldfish in a bowl!

  39. Rubber duckie you’re the one, you make bath time lots of fun…

  40. This will make you smile. It might even make you weepy (in a good way).
