Ducktor Morty

Morty Sosland, MD (aka Ducktor Morty), is a child psychiatrist living in NewJersey. He wrote the Can Do Duck books with the help of his wife, Esther Deblinger, Ph.D., a child psychologist, and their young daughters who illustrated the books. Started as a family project and first printed in a Kinkos copy store, these books have truly taken flight. Through the website,, Ducktor Morty has sold over 10,000 copies of these books. The Can Do Duck books have motivated and inspired children of all ages. They have been used in schools all over the United States from Florida to California as well as in Canada, Australia, and Grenada.

A government agency printed 30,000 copies of a third Can Do Duck book about hurricanes (available for free on the website) and distributed them to children and their families throughout the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina. Can Do and the Storm inspired the creation of a puppet show based on the story. An innovative South Carolina literacy organization called Limos For Learning ® has ordered thousands of books and created a Can Do Duck mascot who visits schools based on the main character of these books. Coaches have used the books with high school and middle school sports teams to motivate their athletes. A Miss Tennessee contestant read this story along with The Little Engine That Could, to inspire children to believe in themselves. The books have inspired a book club with the children doing good deeds around their community.

Students have been reciting the book's slogan along with the Pledge of Allegiance and it has been chanted by cheerleaders. "I say I can. I make a plan. I get right to it. And then I do it!" In subsequent books, Can Do meets new friends and takes on additional challenges learning about teamwork and getting along with others who are different from you as well as other important values. The latest book, just completed, is about developing an “attitude of gratitude” by appreciating what you have and helping others and it tackles today’s issues including the economy and finding a job.

These books can be life changing and they offer universal messages that are positive, inspiring and motivational. Ducktor Morty uses rhyme and humor to entertain and teach at the same time. We hope these books will inspire and motivate children, adults, and ducks and make the world a better place for all.

Ducktor Morty is a graduate of Harvard University and Jefferson Medical College.

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
