Donald Duck

Donald Duck spanks a little penguin.

Donald Duck is a cartoon character created in 1934, at Walt Disney Productions. Donald is an anthropomorphic white duck with a yellow-orange bill, legs, and feet. He typically wears a sailor shirt and cap with a black or red bow tie. Donald is most famous for his semi-intelligible speech and his mischievous and temperamental personality.

Like all of Walt Disney's characters, Donald is featured both in animated cartoons and in comic strips.

Donald and spankingEdit

Donald and his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie traditionally never wear any clothing below the waist other than shoes. Due to their feathers and the general principle in mainstream cartoons of never showing bare breasts, genitals or ani, their half-nudity is not considered offensive.

Donald sometimes threatens his nephews with a spanking and occasionally also makes his threat come true. His preferred instrument of chastisement for the boys is a switch freshly broken off a tree or shrub or a flat-backed hairbrush. In the comics, spankings are usually not shown explicitly, but the panels show the before and aftermath (marked or red bottoms radiating heat or stars). Sometimes Donald also spanks other characters, including animals.

Donald was also spanked himself as a duckling. In one flashback scene, Uncle Scrooge catches his young nephew Donald filching a slice of Grandma's apple pie and marches him unceremoniously to the woodshed.

Specific storiesEdit

In "Donald Tames His Temper" (WDC 64-02, 1946), Donald suffers a severe purse-blow from Daisy. As a result, he loses all his temper. The nephews take advantage of their uncle's softened self. When they have driven him to total despair, he calls Daisy for advice and she replies: "Why, spank them, of course! Be firm with them, but don't show anger!" Donald's reponse is a relieved "Glory be! Then it's okay to whale the blazes out of 'em — if I do it with a smile!"

In "Spoil the Rod" (WDC 92-02, 1948), a professor tells Donald that he must not spank his nephews. He makes Donald try non-coercive (permissive) parenting instead, but the result is that Huey, Dewey and Louie play worse pranks. The story's title is a pun on the proverb "spare the rod and spoil the child".

In "Metaphorically Spanking" (WDC 531, 1988), the nephews are playing truant, but wherever they go they soon must escape because by coincidence Donald happens to come to the same place. In the end they are so worn out and remorseful they volunteer to learn their lessons while spanking each other with hairbrushes (m/m).
