June 9 – Donald Duck Day

Video

Happy Donald Duck Day! In honour of this day, I want to share with you a Donald Duck episode you may have missed out on growing up. “Der Fuehrer’s Face”, released in 1943 was a short propaganda film made to try and sell war bonds during WWII. It features Donald Duck as a reluctant Nazi and received an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. Unsurprisingly it has been kept out of general circulation, but you can watch it now! I suggest you do, it’s great.
