This day in history 1934 -- Donald Duck makes his big screen debut in Walt Disney's 45th Silly Symphony cartoon The Wise Little Hen.
Throughout Donald's history he has been given three different birth dates. According to the Disney canon Donald's official birthday is June 9, 1934 (the day he debuted in The Wise Little Hen). In The Three Caballeros (1944) his birthday is "Friday the 13th" and the reason for all his bad luck. In Donald's Happy Birthday short (1949) his birthday is given as March 13.
Here is a special Donald Duck plush, number 2166/2400, we bought at Disneyland in 2009 for his 75th anniversary. He is not played with, but I allowed Nathaneal to hug him for these photos. He loves Donald! :)
