Pop Culture Curmudguin #9: Happy 80th Birthday Donald Duck

Who’s never wrong, but always right, who’d never dream of starting a fight;                

Who gets stuck with all the bad luck…no one, but Donald Duck.

It is 80 years ago this week that Donald Duck debuted.  Of all the Disney characters, he is perhaps the most interesting.  Mickey Mouse is even more of the white meat babyface than John Cena could ever dream of being.  Goofy is the bumbling sidekick.  But Donald is not just the id, but the super id for all of us.  Like Donald, we have all had our great plans blow up completely in our face. We have all felt the urge to simply rage.  This is my tribute to Donald Duck.

Should I Toon In? Gravity Falls

Greetings all, make sure you have your rucksacks packed with disposible cameras, garlic, and magnifying glasses because we’re going to be taking a trip out to Gravity Falls, Oregon. Why would we want to go to Gravity Falls you might ask? Because that’s the setting of the newest cartoon on the Disney Channel and that’s also the show I’ll be taking a look at on this edition of Should I Toon In!
