It is hard to believe that Donald Duck is turning 90 years old! The popular Disney character celebrates his birthday on June 9, 2024! Of course, Walt Disney joked that he liked to celebrate Donald Duck’s birthday every Friday the 13th.

His June 9th birthday aligns with the 1934 release of his on-screen debut in The Wise Little Hen.  This story was part of the Silly Symphonies series of theatrical cartoon shorts.

Donald has since appeared in multiple movies, animated shorts, TV series, specials, books, and theme park attractions! He has become one of the most recognizable and beloved characters there is.
