Main article: Biography of Donald Duck

Donald Duck, who lives in Duckburg, is the nephew of Scrooge McDuck. He is cursed with an incredible bad luck due to an incident in his youth, and also has a very strong temper. Donald has great and frequent mood swings, and is tough to live with, but in the end, he has a golden heart. This is best demonstrated by his taking care of his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck when his sister Della left them to him.

Physical Appearance

Donald is a white duck with no hair other than his feathers on his head.


Donald's 50's cartoons costume.

Donald's most iconic suit is a blue sailor suit with yellow patterns near the handcuffs, and four (or two) buttons on the shirt. In the comics however, the shirt is black, though the stripes are still yellow and the cap is still blue. Finally, in the 50's cartoons, the suit he wore had no yellow stripes and no buttons, and his tie was black instead of red as in all other incarnations.

Behind the scenes

Donald is commonly thought to have first appeared in 1934 in the cartoon short The Wise Little Hen, however, this was in fact only his first animated appearance, as he had previously appeared in an unknown episode of the Hall of Fame radio series earlier that same year.[8] Donald Duck's creation was actually inspired by his voice actor Clarence Nash, who, when the Disney crew met him, was doing impression of various barnyard animals on the radio, which included an angry duck that would later become Donald.

Donald's "middle name" is Fauntleroy, as revealed in the cartoon Donald Gets Drafted. This is a reference to the fact that child-sized copies of sailor suits, like the one Donald wears, were called "Fauntleroy suits".
