About Donald Duck in brief
Donald Duck is an anthropomorphic white duck with a yellow-orange bill, legs, and feet. He typically wears a sailor shirt and cap with a bow tie. Donald is known for his semi-intelligible speech and his mischievous and temperamental personality. He has appeared in more films than any other Disney character, and is the most published comic book character in the world outside of the superhero genre. Donald was included in TV Guide’s list of the 50 greatest cartoon characters of all time in 2002, and has earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Donald has been a popular character in Europe, particularly in Nordic countries where his weekly magazine Donald Duck & Co was the comics publication with the highest circulation from the 1950s to 2009. In Italy, Donald is a major character in many comics, including a juvenile version named Paperino Paperotto, and a superhero alter ego known as Paperinik. Donald’s last appearance in a theatrical film was in Fantasia 2000. However, since then Donald has appeared. in direct-to-video features such as Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers, television series such asMickey Mouse Clubhouse, and video games such as QuackShot. In addition to animation, Donald was most famously drawn by Al Taliaferro, Carl Barks, and Don Rosa. In the 1930s, he typically appeared as part of a comic trio with Mickey and GoofY and was given his own film series starting with Don Donald.
These films introduced Donald’s love interest and permanent girlfriend Daisy Duck and often included his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. As the animator Fred Spencer has said, Donald gets a big kick out of imposing on other people, but he immediately loses his temper when the tables are turned. In other words, he can dish it out when he can’t take it, but with a few exceptions, there is seldom harm in Donald’s pranks. His nephews appear in the form of angels, and he shows great regret, blaming himself when he is tricked into believing he has accidentally killed Huey and Louie, he shows no remorse for doing so. In Truant Officer, Officer Truant, he is often apologetic when he goes too far, for example, by kicking out Officer Spencer’s big kick or kicking out his nephews’ big kick. He is also known for possessing an only partly intelligible voice, developed by Donald’s original performer, Clarence Nash. The voice actor produces sounds by forcing air through the mouth using the muscles of the cheek, rather than from the lungs as in typical speech. His two dominant personality traits are his fiery temper and his upbeat attitude to life. His rage is a great cause of suffering in his life. On multiple occasions, it has caused him to get in over his head and lose competitions. As a result, instead of running away, he fights—with ghosts, sharks, mountain goats, giant kites, and even the forces of nature.
