When it comes to cartoons that many of us grew up with, we can agree that Disney’s characters featured prominently among the favourites. Today, June 9, is the day one of them made their television debut — Donald Duck!
Donald Fauntleroy Duck (yes, he has a middle name) made his first screen appearance on this day 88 years ago in 1934, in the show The Wise Little Hen. From his distinct, sometimes indiscernible voice, to his easily-spiked temper that gives us the best angry faces and equally good memes; from his walk to his OTT reactions, this character has been a crowd favourite for decades.
