Greetings fellow library goers.
Did you know that June 9th is Donald Duck Day? With the exciting reboot of the beloved Duck Tales just around the corner, now is a perfect time to drop on by the Kirkwood Public Library and check out a wide selection of your Disney favorites! We have comics, books, and DVDs starring our feathered friend just waiting for you! Now on to some trivia concerning that wonderful duck, Donald.
-Donald’s first appearance was in “The Wise Hen” which premiered June 9th of 1934
-Although he first appeared in 1934 Donald’s actual birthday is listed as March 13th 1914. Who knew ducks could live to be about a century old?
-Thelma, Della, or Dumbella is mother to Huey, Dewey, and Louie and sister to Donald. According to a Dutch cartoon, Thelma is an astronaut, which would explain why the nephews spend so much time with their uncle.
-Donald’s middle name is Fauntleroy.
-In 1991 Ducktales became the first American cartoon to be shown in the former Soviet Union.
-Be on the lookout for Beagle Boys! The city of Duckburg is home to 315,000 residents, making roughly the size of our St. Louis. Life is like a hurricane here in St. Louis. Racecars, lasers, aeroplanes …
So visit your friendly neighborhood Kirkwood Public Library for a fantastic selection of your Disney favorites. While here let us know your favorite or comment below. We always love to hear from our patrons. Personally, I have always been partial to Launchpad McQuack.
I’ll see you around the library.
