Happy 85th anniversary, Donald Duck! That's right, today, June 9, is the official birthday for the mallard of all media, for he was introduced in Walt Disney's The Wise Little Hen, the Silly Symphony short the debuted on this date in 1934. We turn to a Sunday page from the classic Donald Duck comic strip, drawn by Al Taliaferro and written by Bob Karp, as reprinted in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #212 (May 1958). Interesting to note that this Sunday page was originally published in newspapers on December 25th, 1955. Hey Donald, isn't that someone else's birthday? Happy B-day, Mr D, no matter on what date you celebrate.
