Happy 75th Donald Duck
It was on this date June 9, 1934, that Donald Duck made his debut in the short "The Wise Little Hen". Due to the popularity of this cartoon, Donald soon was teamed up with Mickey Mouse and Goofy and awarded his own cartoon series not long afterward.
In my opinion the best work done with Donald Duck was the Comic Book stories written and drawn by the Great Carl Barks. His grand adventures in the Four Color Comics (and later his own series) and the comedic Ten-Pagers in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories are some of the best material done for Comics.
