Ever since his first appearance in the 1934 Walt Disney Cartoon, “The Wise Little Hen,” Donald Duck has been entertaining fans with his animated antics. He’s one of the infamous Fab Five of Disney iconic cartoon characters, along with his gal Daisy, Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy.
Almost a star on its own, the classic Donald Duck temper tantrum surfaced in “Orphan’s Benefit” and has been an Achilles’ Heel for the adorable drake ever since.
Compiled here, as a feather to tickle your funny bone are 10 temper tantrum toting toons featuring the loveable Donald Duck.
1. “The Autograph Hound”
This 1939 cartoon is doubly delightful for the host of 1930’s movie stars making cameo appearances throughout the silly short.
2. “Donald’s Better Self”
In 1938 Donald finds himself torn between doing the right thing or giving in to temptation. The angel and devil incarnations of Donald’s imagination are a fun application of the good vs evil in the form of “Conscience” (angel) and “Anti-Conscience” (devil).”
3. “Donald’s Lucky Day”
A wonderful depiction of Friday the 13th superstitions and the misfortune they may bring. This classic Donald Duck cartoon from 1939 is the bomb!
4. “Donald’s Off Day”
Jack Hannah directed this 1944 Donald Duck cartoon. Ready for a relaxing day of golf, Donald’s plans are thwarted by the Florida-like weather (yes, the rain storms in FL are just about as fickle). Forced to stay indoors, his plans for enjoying the day are further fractured by the antics of his nephews.
5. “How to Have an Accident in the Home”
Similar in style to the Goofy “How to” cartoons this 1956 cartoon is an amusing anecdote on home safety narrated by J.J. Fate himself. Poor Donald discovers just how much can really go wrong inside the presumed safety of his ordinary home in an ordinary neighborhood.
