* TheOtherDarrin: Donald has had the smallest amount of "official" voice actors out of the main cast. Clarence "Ducky" Nash, who originated the voice in 1934 and voiced him until his death in 1985. And Tony Anselmo, who has been voicing him since 1985. An animator at Disney, Anselmo befriended Nash when he joined the studio in the early 80s. Nash personally trained Anselmo to be his successor, though Anselmo was unaware of Nash's motivations for teaching him the voice and thought it had just been for fun, and was surprised to learn he was to be the new Donald.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Concepts for shorts that were never produced include Donald being seduced by a foreign spy so he won't turn in top secret papers to the war office, intercepting a Japanese troop carrier, spoiling a surprise attack by Adolf Hitler and defeating King Kong in feats of strength, among others. Read all about it [[http://www.seriesam.com/barks/animcartunp.html here]] and [[http://www.disneyshorts.org/miscellaneous/unmadeshorts.html here]]
** ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' was to have a completely different premise, making it a true sequel series to ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''. What was it? ''The idea was to bring Donald back from the navy. Scrooge realizes that one day Donald will take over the [=McDuck=] fortune, so Don should have an idea of what itís like to handle such responsibility, hence he leaves Huey, Dewey, and Louie back with him. They are older now, but are still the kids who used to look up to him and think the world of their Uncle Donald, who just finished basic training. Donald should try to do his best to take care of the nephews while he gets reacquainted with Daisy and works in his new job.'' Considering the fandom's [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks reaction]] to what we got instead, it's infuriating how Disney felt the need to go TotallyRadical.
** Know of a little game named ''KingdomHearts'', where Donald plays one of the main sidekicks along with Goofy? Turns out, Disney wanted the duck to be the main character! Creator/SquareEnix, however, preferred Mickey Mouse for that role. As series creator Tetsuya Nomura didn't like either choice, [[TakeAThirdOption Sora was created for the job.]] One can only wonder...

* HeyItsThatVoice: The voice of [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Pongo]] provides the other voice of Donald from "Donald's Dream Voice".
** The Japanese-dubbed version is an interesting case (and also overlaps with TheOtherDarrin): Donald was voiced by four different voice actors in all his broadcasting tenure in Japan: Takuya Fujioka in the 50s, Creator/KenichiOgata in the 80s, Creator/KeiTomiyama in WesternAnimation/DuckTales halfway until his death, and Creator/KoichiYamadera as his replacement to this date. The interesting part is Ogata's Donald sounded [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7UURdhPgYc&feature=related more deeper]] than the original American voice actors (he doesn't sound like a duck, in first place), while Yamadera's Donald not only sounds like a duck, he sounds ''almost the same'' as he normally [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jb-GLC9uBk&feature=related sounds in English.]]
** The Mexican Spanish dub is another interesting case: Despite being voiced by many different voice actors along the years, Donald sounds almost the same regardless who voices him.
