Trivia

When Donald passes the mailbox, the mailbox flag starts waving like a telegraph key, sounding out Morse code. The code translates to 'D E DEVIL'. In amateur radio language, this means 'This is (the) Devil'! See more »

How old is Donald?
24 June 2005 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

Coz in this he's still a kid going to school. Or at least he should be going to school. He doesn't feel like getting out of bed and his devil side wants to lie in but his angel side convinces him to get up. Then there's the dilemma of either going to school or having fun. Should he go fishing or go to class? Should he smoke a big cigar or do the intelligent thing and refuse it?

Obviously the devil and angel start fighting it out with each other instead of bothering with Donald himself. And in the end he does end up going to class. But really, how old is Donald and is he really still in School? Whatever the answer is, it's a funny cartoon.
