This month, Disney is celebrating the 90th anniversary of Donald Duck, and this coming Sunday, 9th June 2024, Disney is releasing two classic shorts,  “Crazy Over Daisy” (1950) and “Out on a Limb” (1950), on Disney+ around the world, which have both been restored.

Along with the release of those shorts, a brand new short from Walt Disney Animation Studios, called “D.I.Y. Duck”, is also going to be released on Disney+ on Sunday, 9th June 2024.

This is the first short starring Donald Duck by Walt Disney Animation Studios since 1961, and it finds Donald trying his hand at some home repairs, which begin with the replacement of a light bulb and quickly turn into a series of comic catastrophes. His temper flares and his frustration grows as things spiral out of control and lead to an explosive finale.

D.I.Y. Duck” has been written and directed by incoming Disney Legend and renowned animator Mark Henn and it will be his last project before retiring from the company in December 2023.

The short is produced by Emmy Award-winner Dorothy McKim and was created by the hand-drawn animation team at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Jennifer Lee, Disney Animation’s chief creative officer and executive producer. The short also pays tribute to Disney Legend Clarence “Ducky” Nash, who originated the voice of Donald for his first 50 years, and who delivers the character’s vocal gestures and assorted wise quacks by way of archival voice recordings.

This brand-new short will also be shown on the Disney Channel and Freeform linear channels, and it will also be released on YouTube.

To go along with the release of this new short, Disney is also celebrating with new merchandise and events at its theme parks.
