Happy Birthday Donald Duck!

Today is the 80th birthday of our fowl friend. This beloved cartoon character has been giving us the third greatest gift for all of that time. He is the number one scene stealer of Walt’s era. Looking back at his career, Donald is blessed with a wonderful voice, three great nephews, adoring critters, ability to make friends with almost any animal and a girlfriend that has kept the relationship alive all these years and never moved it forward. What more could any male want? On his birthday I wish Donald a brand new Blu Ray disc or DVD. The kind with the old Shrink Wrap that took forever to get off. In the comments leave what you would wish Donald for his 80th Birthday.
