And I’m Quackers! Quack Quack Quack!

—Quackers McQuack, Lovin that cali lifestyle!!


Quackers McQuack is a recurring character in BoJack Horseman. He is one of Hollyhock's eight adoptive fathers. He first appears in Lovin that cali lifestyle!!, in Season 4.

Physical Appearance[]

Quackers McQuack is an adult male short duck with white feathers, an orange beak, and short “hair” in a styled up fashion. He also appears to have a chubby belly.

He is slightly more than 4 1/2 ft tall according to the model sheets, making him the shortest of the fathers.

He wears a teal button-down short-sleeved Hawaiian shirt with pink and purple flowers and green leaves, a pair of above the knee red shorts, and green flip-flops.


Not much is known about Quackers. He, like the other dads, is shown to be very protective of Hollyhock, getting angry at BoJack after she overdoses on amphetamines and angrily questioning how BoJack let it happen.

He may have a bad temper, as Arturo tells him to calm down when he is yelling at BoJack and after he says "quack."

Quackers, much like the other dads, he has a gimmick: saying "quack" a lot.



Quackers is one of the eight men who adopted Hollyhock, born September 24, 2000 and sired by Butterscotch Horseman and his maid/mistress Henrietta, sometime when Hollyhock was still an infant.

He and the other dads sometimes communicate in a "Dad Speak" with the intention that people outside of the relationship (including Hollyhock) wouldn't be able to understand it.

However, unbeknownst to the dads, Hollyhock understands what they're saying perfectly well.

They live in Wichita, Kansas.

Season 4[]

Quackers and the other dads are mentioned numerous times throughout Season 4 by Hollyhock.

They make their first appearance in Lovin that cali lifestyle!!, when they travel to L.A. after Hollyhock accidentally overdoses on amphetamines (later found out to be caused by Beatrice putting weight loss supplements in Hollyhock's coffee).

The dads blame BoJack and refuse to let him see Hollyhock ever again.

In What Time Is It Right Now, BoJack travels to their home in Wichita, Kansas. After begging them to hear him out, he explains how he discovered he isn’t actually Hollyhock’s biological father—his father Butterscotch is.

He also found out Hollyhock's mother is his family's former maid, Henrietta Platchkey, and he wanted to give Hollyhock her phone number.

They agree to tell her, but still tell BoJack to leave.

Season 5[]

The dads seem to have allowed Hollyhock and BoJack to talk again, as Hollyhock and BoJack continue to have a distant sibling relationship afterward. Hollyhock even visits him in Ancient History.

Season 6[]

In Intermediate Scene Study w/ BoJack Horseman, Hollyhock mentions to BoJack three of her fathers were disappointed that she quit when she quit rugby, while the other five were relieved to hear she quit the team. It is unknown as to which fathers were relieved and which were disappointed.


  • The Language (or "Dads Speak") of Hollyhock's fathers actually consists of adding "ittag" after every first letter in a word (i.e. "What do you guys think?", becomes "wittaghat dittago yittagou gittaguys tittaghink?") the language also doesn't seem to use the word "Is."
  • He is slightly reminiscent of Disney's Donald Duck, as they are both white ducks with short tempers.
