Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy: A Birthday Homage to Donald Duck!

We have a birthday to celebrate Donald Fauntleroy Duck first appeared in the Silly Symphonies cartoon The Wise Little Hen on June 9, 1934.   Since then, he has become one of Disney’s most popular character.  Sure, his attitude can be a little hard to handle, but Mickey, Minnie and Goofy consider Donald, a very close friend.

How many of us have done a Donald Duck impersonation? Come on… you know you have! Or worst yet, how many of us have lost our temper, like Donald Duck?  Aw, phooey!

Either way, Donald Duck has been a part of our lives, one way or the other. Do you remember your first encounter with Donald Duck at Disneyland or Walt Disney World?

How about we get the party started by checking out how Disney artist Don “Ducky” Williams, draws his favorite character – Donald Duck.

To help with the festivities, I’ve put together some creative ways the whole family can enjoy a good birthday bash, a la Donald Duck, of course!
