Aloha Donald Duck Friday!
Donald Duck's first appearance on screen was in the animated short film "The Wise Hen", on June 9, 1934. Although Donald's birthday is said to be on March 13th in the 1949 short film "Donald's Happy Birthday", Disney later decided that Donald's official birthday is June 9th, the day he first appeared in film. Thus, June 9th is Donald Duck Day. The character Donald Duck came about after Walt Disney heard Clarence Nash reciting "Mary Had a Little Lamb" in his "duck" voice, and Nash went on to voice Donald until 1984. Tony Anselmo started voicing Donald in 1985, and is still Donald's voice as of 2017. Donald's full name is Donald Fauntleroy Duck, and he is known for his sometimes temperamental personality, and is many times associated with his nephews Huey, Louie, and Dewey, and his girlfriend Daisy.
