After theatrical shorts fell out of favor his appearances slowed, but he was never quite out. He appeared in ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' as a supporting character, and starred in ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack''. Appeared in a famous crossover with WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', got a segment in ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'', reappeared with the gang in ''WesternAnimation/MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers'', and in 2005 he got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He also came back in ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouseworks'' and ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouseClubhouse'', as well as the 2013-present television series of ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse'' shorts and the ''[[WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017 DuckTales]]'' revival (as a regular this time). He appeared as a court mage in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', to say nothing of the few games he got to himself, such as the fondly remembered ''VideoGame/{{Quackshot}}''.

** One Barks story deals with Donny’s attempts to become an expert on the subject of plants. Its title? ''Deflowered Donald''.

* {{Leitmotif}}: The sea chanty "The Sailor's Hornpipe", particularly moreso in his early days.



* ScrewySquirrel: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IErXg5kBXXg "The Band Concert" (1935).]]



** Donald's voice can be so hard to understand that it has caused at least two {{Mondegreen}}s in the form of people accusing him of screaming "Fuck you!" in ''Clock Cleaners'' and calling [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Daffy Duck]] a nigger in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' (he actually says "''Sez'' you!" and "You doggone stubborn ''little''...", respectively). This does not apply to him in the comics, though for obvious reasons, though once in a while a story may allude to his odd voice.

The short ends with him running off to beat up the show's host despite the fact that ''everything that happened to him was directly his own fault.''
*** In the comics by Al Taliaferro, Donald was recurrently portrayed as
nothing but trouble a jerk (save for a several strips-long failed attempt at redeeming himself in 1937, where every attempt by Donald to do good just got him even deeper into trouble). As well as generally shown with interests in playing pranks, breaking windows, throwing stones at people and other such petty crimes as a source of fun, this also featured comics where Donald would do things like tie an anchor to Goofy's leg and throw him in the entire way there.river.

From there, he took off, gaining a supporting cast. In 1937's ''Don Donald'' he got a girlfriend, Donna (who was replaced by Daisy Duck in ''Mr. Duck Steps Out'' in 1940). In 1938 his "darling nephews" Huey, Dewey, and Louie came for a visit (officially in 1938's ''Donald's Nephews'', but the story had been told in the comics a few months earlier). The nephews' mother, Donald's twin sister Della [[note]]"Dumbella" in her first appearance and still in some countries' canons[[/note]], was never seen or heard from again, and Donald became their permanent foster parent. The next year, ''Donald's Cousin Gus'', introduced Gus Goose, his cousin.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperSpeed: Downplayed, but it's not unusual to see Donald running like heck with WheelOFeet and all [[RuleOfFunny if his life depends on it]]. In games featuring Donald, both by westerns and the japanese, it is also curiously common to either have a powerup that makes Donald run around very fast or to incorporate speed in some quirky way on his normal moveset. In ''[[VideoGame/DonaldInMauiMallard Maui Mallard]]'', for instance, ninja Donald had a dash move with WheelOFeet. And in ''[[VideoGame/DonaldDuckNoMahouNoBoushi Mahou no Boushi]]'', Donald could run over walls.

Donald first appeared in the SillySymphonies short ''The Wise Little Hen'' in [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1934]], where he played one of the lazy animals in the fable, refusing to help the Hen make her bread and was thus denied a reward at the end. His distinct voice, given to him by Clarence "Ducky" Nash, singled him out for stardom. He quickly became a bit player in several other shorts before finally landing a role alongside Mickey and Goofy in 1935's ''Mickey's Service Station''.
