Donald Duck

“He has brought tremendous joy and laughter to people around the world, with his charm and explosive temper tantrums..” – Michael Eisner, then-CEO of the Walt Disney Company

On August 9, 2004, Donald Duck was the recipient of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was honored with the walk’s 2,257th star, located on the south side of the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard. Fortuitously timed with the character’s 70th birthday celebrations, the star honored Donald’s career, from his first appearance in the 1934 Silly Symphony “The Wise Little Hen,” and his own short film series beginning in 1937. The character received a special plaque in a ceremony in front of the Disney-owned El Capitan Theater and the Disney Store. Celebrating Donald’s honor were Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Daisy Duck, and Pluto. Also in attendance was Johnny Grant, Chairman of the Walk of Fame Committee; Bob Chapek, President of Buena Vista Home Entertainment; and Sharon Morrill, President of Disney Toon Studio.
