This old Donald Duck one-pager has been making the rounds lately. Or should we say, this Donald Goddamn Duck one pager. He shows them how it’s done.

To our untrained eye it appears to have been drawn by Jack Hannah. Can anyone correct our woeful ignorance?

Comments

  1. Stone cold, Double-D. Stone cold.

    “DAMN it feels good to be a gangsta.”

  2. Andrew Davis says:

    That’s really funny.
    Also, HOLY COW DONALD YOU MURDERER. That’s pretty gruesome, Ghost Walt.

  3. Looks like Al Taliaferro to me, but could be Hannah. Or heck, it COULD be Floyd Gottfreydson (the impact splashes look a lot like his, but that WAS the style of the day…)
    Definitely NOT Barks. And too old for Tony Strobl or any of the later gang.

  5. I thought only Daffy did stuff like that.

  6. Donald, Daffy, Howard, all those damn ducks had an attitude!

  7. I can think of one or two people that make me that cranky sometimes. Okay, all the time. Good thing I don’t live to close to the water.

  8. Looks like Jack to me.

  9. That’s Al Taliaferro’s, alright. He drew the daily funnies and Sunday pages of Donald Duck in the 1930s. The strip was usually written by Bob Karp.

    Karp and Taliaferro were actually the ones that created Hewey, Dewey and Louie, a year before they first appeared on film.

  10. Torsten Adair says:

    WAUGH! My researched post vanished! The artist is Al Taliferro. Gladstone’s second series of Walt Disney’s Donald Duck reprintedmost of the early King Feature strips. The first issue in that series, #280?, the one with Donald juggling on the cover, contains it. Credits can be found at the Grand Comics Database, with information from the Disney comics mailing list.

  11. Add Duckman to your list of cranky ducks.

    How could you forget Duckman? :)

  12. Don’t f&@# with Donald Duck.

    Respect!

  13. Justin says:

    Funny, but… this has been making the rounds?

  14. Also Dirty Duck.

    Are there any non-cranky comic ducks?

  15. Also Mock Duck; and of course, many of Donald’s family members are either as grumpy as he is, or get that way when provoked.
    Dinky Duck from Terrytoons is non-cranky. So is Little Quacker (later Yakky Doodle) from Tom and Jerry.

    As for IDing “Hook, Line, and Succor,” the Taliaferro art ID is correct, while the writing is Ted Osborne’s. It’s actually the Silly Symphony Sunday strip for Sept 27, 1936, here as remounted for WDC&S 1.
    Heidi, thanks for spreading the gospel of Ducks! Jack Hannah actually drew Donald for comic books only—never for the newspaper strip. At Gemstone, we reprinted a 1943 Hannah story in a recent WDC&S (click on my handle to go to the back issue page at our site).

  16. Add to the list MLJ’s SUPER DUCK, who was only super for his first few issues (1943-1960! Wow!) and then became another cranky duck.

    One of his favorite schticks was running after people with a wood-axe.

    Subtle he was not.

  17. @David: Thanks for comping up with the right name of the writer!

  18. Damn, that was almost as politically incorrect as you can possibly get :)

Trackbacks

  1. [...] I read, like most children in my country do when growing up, Donald Duck almost religiously. Donald Duck would always provide correct “learning to read” language, easily understandable story lines and recognizable characters. We always knew that Donald would get mad, his nephews would be smart, Mickey Mouse would be clever, Goofy would be, well, goofy etc. That is, at least, what I thought until finding this cartoon here. Its a strip for a Sunday newspaper in 1936 and horribly political incorrect. I find it funny, but this is probably not the message we want to send to our children.. Donald being Donald [...]
