Donald Duck is 87 Years Old Today

by HB Auld, Jr. (with a hat tip to Phil Galloway)

“Today is Donald Duck Day! It was on June 9, 1934, that the irascible duck first appeared on screen.

His birthday was originally given as March 13th, but Walt Disney later decreed the date to be June 9th. It always seemed funny that he would appear just out of a shower with a towel wrapped around his waist, but then go out in public with just a coat on!!”

Happy 87th birthday, Donald Duck!
