Polar Trapper is a comic story written by Bob Karp and drawn by Al Taliaferro. It features Donald Duck, Bolivar and Penny the Penguin.


Donald Duck has travelled to the Pole with Bolivar, intent on becoming a "bring 'em back alive" polar trapper. Unfortunately, between various hi-jinx and a penguin who won't let herself be captured, it's not as easy as it sounds.

Behind the scenes

This story was first published as a serial in various American newspapers in 1938, because of which each strip is indexed on Inducks on its own. It was first published as a whole story in Donald Dukc #267, and the series was also reprinted in The Complete Donald Duck Newspaper Comics and the two first strips could also be found in Donald Duck #289.

The premise (and title) of the story is lifted from the Donald & Goofy cartoon Polar Trappers, released the same year.
