Donald Duck's birthday- June 9

Donald Duck made his debut on June 9, 1934, in Walt Disney's cartoon The Wise Little Hen.
In this cartoon, Donald and his friend Peter Pig fake stomach aches as an excuse for avoiding to help Mrs. Hen who is busy sowing seeds of maize. After Mrs. Hen finishes her toils unaided, they hope to get a treat but learn a painful lesson instead.

Some particulars about Donald Duck:

Donald is a white feathered duck with orange-yellow legs and beak. His attire usually consists of a sailor shirt and cap, and a red tie.

The voice impersonating Donald Duck belonged at first to the voice actor Clarence Nash until his decease in 1985. Since then the voice actor Tony Anselmo has taken on the role.

Donald's family members include: Daisy Duck (Donald's girlfriend), Huey, Dewey, and Louie (Donald's three nephews), Scrooge McDuck and Professor Ludwig Von Drake (uncles).

Up to now 178 Donald Duck cartoons have been filmed, surpassing the number of Mickey Mouse cartoons.

Donald Duck suffers from a lack in anger control. Rage builds up inside him until he blows his top. He is short tempered and tends to run into trouble when fury gets the better of him.

When calm, Donald Duck generally loves leisure and tends to impassivity. His speech consists of shrieking, practically unintelligible utterances.

In 2004 a star in his name was embedded in the Hollywood Walk of Fame, adding him to the company of cartoon characters such as Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse.

Finland had boycotted Donald Duck for years-because he had no pants.
