Here’s to the duck who’s been quacking us up since 1934. Donald was conceived after Walt Disney heard performer Clarence Nash doing animal voices on the radio in the early 1930s and is still one of Disney's most iconic characters today. Considered Mickey Mouse's faithful squire, Donald Fauntleroy Duck is known for his quirky humour and short temper, but also for being a great friend, full of energy.

The character, who has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, has appeared in more than 150 animated shorts; starred in dozens of television shows, including Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and DuckTales; appeared in theatrical features like Fantasia/2000; played characters in games like Kingdom Hearts and Disney Tsum Tsum; and appeared in numerous events like Disney on Ice. He even co-hosted the 1958 Academy Awards.  - 7KLIK
