Not only is this the first official Donald Duck cartoon, it also marks the first appearance of his girlfriend. Here, however, she is called Donna, and her voice is the same as Donald's, just sped up slightly.See more »

Donald meets his match, 26 January 1999
Author: Squonk from Denver, CO

This very funny Donald Duck short puts the feathered one south of the border as he tries to woo an attractive young female duck. This film marks the first appearance of the character that would become Daisy Duck, but it's not the Daisy we've come to know. This duckette has a temper to match Donald's. Watching this made me wish they had left the Daisy Duck character like this, making her a much more suitable match for Donald.
