Duckmobile [gone]
Houston, TX
This Duckmobile came from the "Batman Returns" roller coaster at the now-gone Astroworld in Houston. I believe it is a replica of the one that the Penguin drove in the 1992 movie. This Duckmobile was parked next to this Drury Inn since at least 2008. These photos are from 2011. It disappeared around 2013. The original Duckmobile is or was located in Hollywood, CA.

The statue is still there but the business is known as You Quack Me Up Toy & Gift Emporium. There was another location in Wimberley, TX which has closed. I don't know if the statue is still there.

This Rubber Duck float advertises for Vassar's annual Riverfest which includes a rubber duck race.

This Rubber Duck in Oxnard was installed on the roof of Pacific Coast Re-Bath in 2015. The statue was produced in Los Angeles from durable foam. It was gone by 2016. In 2021, it returned with new eyes and eyelashes. It was displayed on top of a trailer in front of the store. In 2023, the statue was gone again.

Amarillo, TX
Rubber Duck [gone]
Coulter St.
Amarillo, TX
Rubber Duck
E. Amarillo Blvd.
Amarillo, TX
Rubber Duck
Colorado Springs, CO
These Rubber Ducks were built for Quick Quack Car Washes. The company was established in 2004 as the Splash & Dash Car Wash with the first location in Sacramento, CA. There are now more than 30 locations in Utah, Texas, California, and Colorado. This duck mascot is named Quackals. He also appears as a human dressed in a duck costume for promotions and special events. I don't know how many statues were built but I believe these were the only two in Amarillo. The Duck on S. Grand was gone by 2018 and by 2019 there was a different car wash chain there. The statue on Coulter St. was gone by 2018. The statue on E. Amarillo Blvd. was installed there around 2022. This may have been the Duck that was on S. Georgia St. from 2018-2021. I believe there is/was only one statue per region and they are moved around. [map].

The Rubber Duck in Colorado Springs has been there since at least 2009. He is dressed in different hats for holidays. [map].

This is the only location with the statues. I believe it opened around 2007. [map]
