Disney’s Duck comics started with Donald Duck, and grew to include many ducks that would go on to become loved by fans all over the world. The original DuckTales cartoon only included Donald Duck on a handful of adventures. The writers chose to leave him out of the stories because they felt his voice would be too difficult for children to understand, and that he would overshadow the rest of the characters.
The creators of Disney XD’s reboot of DuckTales have made the decision to include Donald in their family of adventurers. The first seven or so episodes… (it’s debatable) have proven this was a great decision. Donald’s relationship with Scrooge, the boys, and Mrs. Beakley has made for many of the greatest moments of the show.
One question that may be on the minds of Donald Duck fans is; “Will Daisy Duck appear in DuckTales?”
Daisy Duck first appeared in the Walt Disney short film; Mr. Duck Steps Out in 1940. She went on to appear alongside Donald in several shorts, and even went on to appear in theatrical releases. Daisy did not appear in the original DuckTales cartoon, but she was in many of the classic Duck comics. She was also featured in the Quack Pack where she was updated and given a new look.
We have seen no indication that Daisy will appear on the show, but it could be fun to see how the creators of the reboot would re-imagine her and include her in the family. In Don Rosa’s unofficial timeline, Daisy is the sister of Donald’s brother-in-law. This would make her Huey, Dewey, and Louie’s aunt! Which does explain why they always called her “Aunt Daisy.” It would be interesting to see Daisy included in the search to solve the mysteries around Della Duck (who would be her sister-in-law). Or maybe she shows up in season 2, when we start looking for the boys’ father.
What do you think? Do you think we see Daisy in the DuckTales reboot? Will she be introduced as a relative of the nephews? Comment below or going the conversation on Twitter!
