Donald and Daisy Duck Have a History

in Duck

Daisy Duck and Donald Duck are a couple and have been seeing each other for ever. Daisy made her debut in 1937 in the cartoon 'Don Donald,' as Donna Duck. In her very next appearance in 'Mr Duck Steps Out,' in 1940 she became known as Daisy Duck.

They have been a couple ever since. She is forever trying to perfect Donald's bad behavior and speech problems. She is sometimes her own worst enemy when she sabotages her dreams of a 'changed Donald.'

It is believed that Daisy Duck was born in 1920 in Duckburg. Not much is known about her family tree, but we know of two aunts, Matilda and Drusilla. Daisy also has an unnamed sister, who is the mother of her three nieces April, May and June. Her brother is the father of Huey, Dewey and Louie.

It is believed that Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck grew up as best friends, as depicted in later cartoons. They remain close and often feature together along with the rest of the gang, including Mickey, Donald, Pluto and Goofy.

After her debut, Daisy Duck went on to make 14 film appearances. In 1957 her nieces, April, May and June made their screen debuts.

Daisy Duck is best known for her determined heart, the sassy sashay in her walk and those flirtatiously long eyelashes. Daisy Duck is a real drama queen, and can go from one mood to another just as quickly as Donald Duck. Her favorite sayings are 'Well I never!' or 'Oh Donald.'

Daisy Duck is often given the normal women stereotypes in the roles that she plays, for example bad driving, cooking and cleaning. She is also sometimes depicted as fickle, as she cannot choose between Donald Duck and Gladstone Gander. Donald Duck and Gladstone Gander are constantly competing for Daisy's attention.

Among Daisy's favorite sayings are 'Oh, Donald....' and 'Well, I never!'

Daisy Duck is very involved with the ladies club in Duckburg. In 'A Christmas For Shacktown, her ladies club arranges a Christmas party for the poorest children in Duckburg. She is also a member of a local gossip group called the Chit-Chat Society. They spend their time playing bridge and sponsoring charity fund-raisers.

In the 1970's Daisy also became a crime fighter. The character of Super Daisy was designed as a female counter-part to Super Donald. Unfortunately Donald still comes off second best most of the time.
