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. 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.
Donald Duck has a good heart and always has good intentions. Well, almost
always. 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.
Hot-headed Donald is a little man in a big world that's trying to keep him down.
Call it fate, or call it lack of self-control, nothing goes right for this duck: even his
best intentions often go awry. Of course, by the time his best intentions surface
he's probably already chasing after less noble pursuits. As stubborn as he is
temperamental, he won't give in, even when he's up to his beak in trouble. Then
watch out. Like a lot of people with a temper problem, he's blind to his own faults
but quick to see them in others. He can't understand why life seems so much
easier for pals Mickey and easy-going Goofy. It's not fair. Still, Donald will keep
struggling to get what he deserves in the world.
