Donald Duck is one of the earliest animated characters, along with his friend and often enemy Mickey Mouse. The Disney Character has certainly played a role in everyone’s lives, and its presence is known globally.

Well, Jun 9 is Donald Duck Day, and that means remembering those old Sunday cartoons that were oddly immensely fun to watch, especially when Donald was around.

The pant-less duck certainly has a character; he might just be amongst the grumpiest animated characters in history (at least one of the grumpiest good guys). Still, Donald is easy to love. The duck has fans worldwide, and more than one person is fanatic enough to collect anything Donald Duck-related.

Besides, this is the only animated character that doesn’t have to be translated to other languages, it has its own language, and although Donald sometimes speaks in English, its characteristic sound and facial expression say more than a thousand words.

That’s why Jun 9 is so special for many. It might not mean that much to you, but it might be an exceptional occasion for your neighbor. Donald Duck Day is more than celebrating the animated character, but an opportunity to remember better days where cartoons where just that, entertainment without hidden agendas. When kids didn’t have video games and actually used to play outside. Days where we only had a few TV channels and cartoons were the highlight of every kid’s Sunday.

Here’s a toast for Donald Duck. Love him or hate him, but he’s part of our culture and will forever live on!

History of Donald Duck Day

Donald Fauntleroy Duck is an animated character created in 1934 in the Disney studios, and Jun 9 is officially recognized by Disney as the duck’s birthday.

It comes without saying Disney parks around the world are the place to be for such a notable birthday, as parties and parades dedicated to the antagonist duck are the order of the day.

You might also see Disney using Donald Duck’s old design reminiscent of the company’s first cartoons. The bird has been redesigned many times through the years, although it seems its final form is here to stay, at least for a while.

Donald Duck has many fans; it’s certainly more likable than Mickey, as we can all relate to its bad temper, am I right? Let’s celebrate Donald Duck Day and remember the good old cartoons of our childhood. Those were the days! Do you agree?

How to Celebrate Donald Duck Day

Why not celebrate Donald Duck Day by spending the evening with the family? Put on some old Disney cartoons and enjoy the innocent entertainment of our childhoods. Take it a step further and book a trip to a Disney park to take a picture with the bad-tempered duck we all love!
