Donald Duck is a cartoon character from the Walt Disney Company. He is an anthropomorphic duck who wears a blue sailor uniform and is known for his furious, short temper. Donald is among the most famous Disney characters, along with Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Chip & Dale, and others. He first appeared in the animated cartoon The Wise Little Hen on June 9, 1934. Because of his popularity, he was developed into a major character with his own supporting characters, including his girlfriend Daisy Duck, his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and his uncle Scrooge McDuck.
In 1987 Disney produced a daily cartoon serial called "Ducktales" which focused on Scrooge's inherited responsibility for Donald's nephews while Donald was deployed with the Navy.
