Tuesday's Overlooked: Donald Duck's First Appearance, "The Wise Little Hen"


Today is the 80th anniversary of the first appearance of Donald Duck, Disney's attitude-challenged fowl. He appeared as a supporting character in the Disney short cartoon "The Wise Little Hen" on this date in 1934, and he's been annoying his fellow Disney stars ever since. Here's an opportunity to not only get a glimpse of Donald in his first appearance, but to be reminded of the Disney studio in its infancy before it became the media behemoth it is today. Enjoy!

Remarkable that both Donald and Daffy had their bills trimmed, even as they grew more similar in other ways.

Thanks for this Todd! I've been looking for new podcasts to try out, so you've mentioned this at the perfect time.

Some time ago you sent me a list of other podcasts to check out, and I've held onto it. I need to take another look at it.
