Top 4 Collectibles Celebrating 90 Years of Disney’s Donald Duck

When someone asks, “who’s your favorite Disney character,” is there a charming, animated personality you immediately think of? A special character you fell in love with the first time you saw their face on the movie screen or your TV screen?

Disney characters are created with such artistry, care and inspiration, they are instantly beloved once they are brought into the world. Their memorable movies, stories, shorts and scenes bring joy to generations young and old, and they live forever in our hearts and minds. That’s just a small part of why Disney characters have become so popular for over a century now.

One of the most well know Disney characters got his introduction quite a long time ago. 90 years ago, to be exact. The date was June 9, 1934, and one of Walt Disney’s Silly Symphony cartoons, “The Wise Little Hen”, debuted a character destined for greatness: Disney’s Donald Duck. Created around the talents of voice actor Clarence Nash, Donald Duck danced, sang and squawked his way into the world and put an irresistible smile on the faces of thousands. Now it’s 2024 and Donald Duck’s endearing antics and quirky personality have kept him wise quackin’ for 90 years strong.

When did you first discover Donald Duck? While he might look a little different now than he did for his premiere, it’s been fun to see his evolution over the years. And even though he’s sported different appearances through the decades, his comedic flair, heartfelt adventures and one-of-a-kind voice have always been consistent, making him a duck of distinction. Are you ready to celebrate?

If you’ve shopped at The Bradford Exchange before, you already know what a unique selection of Disney collectibles, jewelry and apparel there is to discover, which is why we are thrilled to pull out all the stops for this important Disney anniversary.
