A selection of interesting facts about Donald Duck

This year, an angry drake celebrated its 82nd birthday, and in honor of this we have collected little-known but interesting facts from his biography.

June 9, 1934 began the story of one of the brightest animated characters of Disney – Donald Duck. Conceived as a white duck in a sailor suit, he first appeared in the cartoon “Little Wise Chicken.” Unlike Mickey Mouse, who was what everyone of us would like to become, Donald Duck became a reflection of every person. It is far from ideal, it has a lot of negative features: hot-tempered, egocentric, demonstrative, but still very cute. You could say that he balances Mickey like Yin and Yang. With the exception of Goofy, Donald Duck is arguably the most unlucky hero of all Disney’s classic characters. This Continue reading

The story of Donald Duck and his nephews

Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck know everything. But not everyone knows who invented and painted them as we know them. Many mistakenly think that all Walt Disney characters were invented by Walt Disney. Most screenwriters and artists worked at Disney Studios anonymously. It happened with Karl Barks – a farmer from a poor family who fulfilled his dream and became a comic book artist and a “duck man”.

“How did I manage to become a comic book illustrator?” For me it’s a mystery. There were no artists and writers in my family, my parents were not interested in art. They had no education either. I was born in Oregon into a family of farmers and went to a school where there was only one class and there were no drawing lessons, ”Barks admitted in an interview. Barks’s parents were very busy people, his brother was also not up to him. As a child, he did not read Treasure Island and did not hear the name of Jules Verne. Continue reading

Walt Disney Series: How Mickey Mouse Appeared?

In the next article from the series “History and Theory of Animation of the USA”, we will take a closer look at the serial works of Walt Disney. These long-term animation cycles have had a huge impact on the full-length production of the Walt Disney Pictures studio itself, as well as on many other animated films of the world working in studios in the UK, Italy, France, Canada and even Russia.

In 1920-1921, Walt Disney commissioned to take 12 short films – “Newman Laughter”. These are the only cartoons made completely by him, from beginning to end (as an artist, animator and author). These scenes from Kansas life were not particularly successful, but they allowed (materially) Disney to begin implementing his own idea – a series of adaptation of fairy tales. Reliance on a literary source and a narrative beginning will become key for the Disney studio for many years, especially in full-length animation (the first semi-animated film according to the original Continue reading
