Donald Duck is one of the most beloved characters created by Walt Disney. His ever-changing temperament, the distinctive waddle and the semi-intelligible words in his quacking voice are what make him such a loved character. He is quite an unpredictable being, and perhaps, it is this impulsive attitude that has led him to change his jobs so often. He is generally seen in a sailor outfit and cap. Interestingly, the only time he actively took the job as a sailor was in the 1956 animated theatrical short, Chips Ahoy, the second last cartoon featuring Donald Duck in a starring role. Let's look at some of the other jobs that Donald Duck has attempted.

唐老鸭是迪斯尼最受欢迎的角色之一。他不断变化的性情,独特的摇摆,以及他那抑扬顿挫的声音里的半明半明的话语,使他成为如此受人喜爱的角色。他是一个不可预测的人,也许,正是这种冲动的态度使他经常换工作。有趣的是,他唯一一次积极地担任水手的工作是在1956年的动画短片《阿霍伊》中,这是第二部以唐老鸭为主角的动画片。让我们来看看唐老鸭尝试过的其他工作。
