Donald Duck's a Big Bird in Politics

(Page 3 of 3)

Ducks usually like their bills — but not their tax bills. However, when irritable Donald sees the terrible threat of the Nazi war machine, he hightails it Washington to personally deliver his share to the Treasury Department (which paid for the film).

Later, in the Oscar-winning Der Fuehrer's Face (originally titled Donald in Nutziland), our hero is forced to work as a virtual slave in a Nazi munitions factory, where he gets beaten up for not saluting Hitler.

Donald wakes up to find that he's no Nazi. It's all been a nightmare, and he is still living in Disneyland.

But if Donald ever has to leave, it's comforting to know that he has a home and political future abroad. If you throw in some meatballs and an Ikea discount, he might even bring Mickey and Goofy.
