A Present for Donald

ABC Airs the Disneyland TV Show A Present for Donald

A Present for Donald debuted on this day in 1954 on the Disneyland TV show, bringing viewers a bit of Christmas from south of the border. Your host, Walt Disney, in his festively decorated office, kicked off the festivities by pointing out that Donald Duck has received a package. From there the episode is mostly comprised of footage from 1944’s The Three Caballeros. In addition to the cartoon shorts The Flying Gauchito and The Cold-Blooded Penguin, Donald presents singing, dancing, parades, and parties in South America and Mexico.
