It was 1934 when the irascible Donald Duck came to life in a teeny bit of a part in The Wise Little Hen and proceeded to steal the show. From that point on nobody could hold him back, and the much loved cranky character went on to be the most prolific of "Walt's fabulous five". Now for the first time, you can enjoy the Donald in all of his starring shorts from Donald And Pluto in 1936 to Chef Donald in 1941. This volume also includes insights into the origins and career of the belligerent bird from Tony Anselmo, a Disney animator since 1980 who apprenticed for three years with Clarence "Ducky" Nash, the originator of Donald's distinctive voice. Featuring exclusive introductions by film historian Leonard Malton, this is a timeless collection from generations past for generations to come.
