Donald Duck Is 85 Years Old Today!
Donald is older than Superman even, who celebrated his 80th anniversary last year! To mark Donald’s momentous occasion, D23‘s put out a tweet which included a link to some of Donald Duck’s most important appearances which range from “The Donald Duck Story” in 1954 to “Duck Flies Coop” in 1959 to the original DuckTales in 1987 to the reboot which debuted in 2017.
Currently, Donald is voiced by Tony Anselmo, who became the official voice of the character in 1985. His first appearance was in the 1986 TV movie DTV Valentine.
What Was The Reason For Donald Duck’s Rise In Fame?
Donald may have made his first appearance in The Wise Little Hen, but it was his second appearance in Orphan’s Benefit that saw him as Mickey Mouse’s “temperamental comic foil.”
