A little bit of Duck history

One of the most popular of the Disney cartoon characters, Donald Duck made his debut in the Silly Symphony cartoon “The Wise Little Hen” on June 9, 1934. His fiery temper endeared him to audiences, and in the 1940s he surpassed Mickey Mouse in the number of cartoons reaching the theaters. Eventually, there were 128 Donald Duck cartoons, but he also appeared in a number of others with Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Pluto. His middle name, shown in a wartime cartoon, is Fauntleroy. Clearly, the most significant factor that led to Mickey’s super-stardom was his optimistic, cheerful, resilient character — one very much like Walt’s. The original voice of Donald was Clarence “Ducky” Nash, who was succeeded after 50 years by Disney artist Tony Anselmo. A daily Donald Duck newspaper comic strip began on February 7, 1938.

Actually, it’s his second or third intentions that are the good ones, but by the time they surface Donald’s already off and running in the wrong direction. He refuses to let anyone or anything stand in his way. It doesn’t matter how much humiliation the world dishes out to him, Donald will take it and come back for more. He’s a loser, not a quitter, and he’ll go down fighting. This is a duck with one short fuse, and an amazing (if unintelligible) command of language, and when things don’t go right, he goes ballistic. Yet after the storm is over and the tantrum is through, when faithful Daisy soothes his brow or his conscience finally catches up with him, even Donald can admit that there must be a better way. If only he could figure out what it is.
