Daisy Duck

Daisy Duck was always sort of a curious anomaly in the Disney pantheon. She showed up in relatively few shorts, and they never really developed much of a personality for her except as either a foil or girlfriend for Donald to play off of. Even then there was a bit of schizophrenia involved. She started out in 1937's Don Donald as a Mexican senorita whose speech couldn't be understood any better than Donald's . However, after that she developed a sort of "Southern Belle" personality. She was always a heck of a dancer, as could be seen in shorts such as "Mr. Duck Steps Out" and "Donald's Crime," and even danced for a nickelodeon show in "A Good Time For a Dime." She had a soft spot in her heart for Donald's three nephews. But, in one sense she was a female version of Donald; she was blessed with every bit a furious a temper as her boyfriend.

Comments

From Elliot : I happen to be one of the few people alive who probably holds Daisy Duck in the favorite character slot. She is much prettier than Minnie and less naive in my opinion. I love the old shorts of Daisy where she appears more as a southern belle or Aphrodite type.....but now? What is happening to my favorite character? I feel she is represented as shallow and uncaring now. A typical modern age sheep who conforms to the loud and obnoxious times. A little while back I saw her with a Madonna pony tail! When has Minnie ever been subjected to this humiliation? Daisy Duck was so loved by me because she had class. Now she is represented as a nag and as a character who is always in the Mickey and friends' shadow. Even Pluto has more merchandise and respect! I implore Disney to give this character her integrity back. She has always been the most loved by me.
