this was an *exhausting* week (for several reasons...) so I really needed to just. reset my brain entirely so I decided to blast out a quick one page doodle comic to do just that :'D it was so hard to call them ladybugs, not ladybirds...
💸 DT17 donald graduated from online college and has a degree in accounting! this is why hes applying for an accounting job in the pilot HE IS ACTUALLY QUALIFIED there was gonna be a scene of him celebrating that he finally got his degree but it got cut for time
⛵️ in DT87 donald leaves the kids w scrooge bc he joins the navy bUT the real reason he doesnt stay around is bc disney is rlly protective of their "mascot" characters and didnt want donald on a syndicated cartoon at the time AND the execs were worried no one would be able to understand him u_u
💀 donald attracts bad luck! hes often portrayed as a coward but its more accurate to say he knows that things will prob go wrong for him somehow and hes terrified for his life most of the time ;; he also has a cousin that has amazingly GOOD luck (gladstone!)
👊 HAS PUNCHED A NAZI AND WILL HAPPILY DO SO AGAIN
🚫 HE IS (AS FAR AS I KNOW) THE ONLY DISNEY MASCOT WHO IS "SWEARING" ON A LOT OF HIS OFFICIAL MERCH AND I LOVE THIS SM LDLKSLKJD
🇺🇸 he does actually have literal irl "military" record and was honorably discharged with a buck sgt rank!
🐔 his sailor suit (1934) predates his time in the navy! when ww2 happened (1939) and all the propaganda cartoons started being made he fell into the navy imagery since he was already recognized as a sailor!
🐭 in DT17 mickey mouse was going to appear as donald's former college roommate but disney wouldnt approve of mickey appearing on the show so they gave p much all the traits they were planning on giving to mickey to storkules! the happy-go-lucky, ultra supportive BIGGEST FAN OF DONALD EVER
🌸 HIS FAVORITE COLOR IS PINK
🌈 AAAAND DONALD TURNED 87 THIS YEAR ON JUNE 9TH!! HIS BDAY IS DURING PRIDE MONTH!!!! 🏳️🌈 🦆 ⭐️ 🌈
