Donald Duck Day

Donald Duck Day is celebrated today because it was on this day, 78 years ago, that the original Donald made his big screen debut in the Walt Disney Silly Symphony, The Wise Little Hen.

Clarence Nash provided the voice of Donald Duck in that first cartoon and would continue to provide that amazing noise until 1983, just a couple of years before his death.

Donald, of course, is still very much with us.

And he's still not wearing any pants.

An alternative, I'm told, is National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day.

But why?
