By 1942, Walt Disney Studios had created a series of short films following Donald's life in the Army. In Donald Gets Drafted, we learn his middle name. During the production time, these shorts may have inspired even the most pessimistic Joe to enlist.
Donald temperament and commitment proves for a strong-willed duck. He often likes to prank his friends but when the tables are turned, he loses his temper and will spiel one of his classic phrases such as "what's the big idea?".
Today, we want to wish D. F. Duck a happy 78th birthday. One day, just one day, he may be everyone's number one and not that squeaky mouse, micwhat'shisname.
