This animated series was produced by the same people, Klasky and Csupo, that were responsible for the first couple of seasons of the Simpsons. It features Jason Alexander as the voice of Duckman who is the world's worst private eye and father, and makes no apologies on either accounts.
If you enjoy Jason Alexander's rants as George Costanza from Seinfeld then Duckman is a must see. If however, you think Homer Simpson is a bad father and role model, than you should probably pass on catching any episodes of Duckman.
To the best of my knowledge Duckman has only had the one brush with time travel. Too bad, since I think Duckman would have made a great foul-mouthed time traveller who would likely have no qualms about screwing with the past just to derive some small pleasure for himself.
