NATIONAL DONALD DUCK DAY

National Donald Duck Day is celebrated annually on June 9th.  This day commemorates the birthday of the funny animal cartoon character, Donald Duck.  Donald made his first screen debut on June 9, 1934 in The Wise Little Hen.

Donald Duck usually wears a sailor suit with a cap and a black or red bow tie and is most famous for his semi-intelligible speech along with his mischievous and irritable personality

Donald Duck has appeared in more films than any other Disney character.   Donald was also declared in 2002 by TV Guide as one of the 50 greatest cartoon characters of all times.

It was in Donald’s second appearance in Orphan’s Benefit that he was introduced to his comic friend, Mickey Mouse.  Donald’s girlfriend,  Daisy Duck, along with his nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, were introduced shortly thereafter. 

In addition to animation, Donald is also known for his appearance in comic books and in newspaper comic strips.

One of Donald Duck’s famous sayings is “Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy”.

Happy National Donald Duck Day!
