Donald Duck is one of the main iconic characters of the Walt Disney Co., second in command after Mickey Mouse. He is boyfriend of Daisy Duck, and best friend of Mickey, and Goofy Goof.


Donald is most famous for his semi-intelligible speech and his mischievous and temperamental personality. Along with his friend Mickey Mouse, Donald is one of the most popular Disney characters and was included in TV Guide's list of the 50 greatest cartoon characters of all time in 2002. He has appeared in more films than any other Disney character, and is the most published comic book character in the world outside of the superhero genre.

Donald Duck rose to fame with his comedic roles in animated cartoons. Donald's first appearance was in 1934 in The Wise Little Hen, but it was his second appearance in Orphan's Benefit which introduced him as a temperamental comic foil to Mickey Mouse. Throughout the next two decades Donald appeared in over 150 theatrical films, several of which were recognized at the Academy Awards. In the 1930s he typically appeared as part of a comic trio with Mickey and Goofy, and was given his own film series in 1937 starting with Don Donald. These films introduced Donald's love interest Daisy Duck and often included his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie.


Donald is typically shown as being very angry and irritable. He is also shown to be jealous of Mickey despite being best friends with him. One of his biggest trademarks is his explosive temper. However, he has a good heart and cares for his friends and family. And he loves to dance with Daisy

  • In the television series House of Mouse Donald claims to be part goose. That may explain his relationship to Gus Goose.
  • He has its own ongoing story called "Paperino Paperotto" in which Donald appears during his childhood. He is voiced by Russi Taylor. The ongoing story then moves to another story as an eight-part miniseries called "Young Donald Duck" where he goes to boarding school with Mickey and Goofy before the story will become an ongoing story permanently after the book release making Paperino Paperotto's spin-off.
  • Just like that Mickey Mouse wears red short overalls, Donald Duck wears a blue button-down shirt with short sleeves.
  • According to the cartoon Donald Gets Drafted (1942), Donald's full name is Donald Fauntleroy Duck (his middle name appears to be a reference to his sailor hat, which was a common accessory for "Little Lord Fauntleroy" suits).
