Poll: Daffy Duck or Donald Duck? (304 votes)

Daffy Duck. 58%
Donald Duck. 42%

Though I'm pretty sure Daffy will win by a landslide; this community never fails to surprise me.

So where do you stand? Daffy or Donald?

Wait. Daffy is popular? I thought this would be a no contest landslide in the other direction.

Oh well. Live and learn. I vote for Donald.

To me it's Daffy 100%. His deranged, chaotic, often times violent nature never fails. Not to mention he is highly quotable. Even as a child I gravitated towards Daffy,

Donald just never clicked with me. I always had problems understanding what the hell Donald was saying and he kinda creeps me out with his "no pants" sailor outfit. I will admit that Donald can be good once he gets on one of his anger phases. However, Daffy will always be the choice duck in this house.

Donald has the balls to wear a shirt but no pants. Somehow more disturbing than Daffy being fully nude

Donald Duck is fucking boring. Daffy is actually entertaining.

Daffy is hilarious when paired with Bugs Bunny or Porky Pig, but Donald Duck in Mathamagic Land is a central part of my childhood. The Chip & Dale animated shorts which co-starred Donald are pretty funny, too.

Donald. More personality, more fun when you know someone who can do an impression.

Have you seen Donald in Kingdom Hearts? He's pretty powerful.

If it was between a Keyblade Wielding Mickey and Bugs Bunny it would be even less of a contest.

I'm partial to Donald Duck because of all the comics I read when I was small. I still re-read them even now!

Daffy is a great character and I like him better than Donald alone, but Donald has such an amazing world built up around him thanks to Carl Barks and Don Rosa and the Ducktales and Darkwing shows that it's pretty much impossible to compare the two.

@oraknabo: Ducktales and Darkwing don't have anything to do with Donald though do they? I know the nephews and Scrooge is in Ducktales but I think Donald only cameos like once or twice?

I would have thought that the poll lean in Donald's favour, interesting. :)

Yeah, Looney Tunes were not prevalent in my childhood.

Maybe they are to busy Nording it out. Get it?! Nording..it..ou....Yeah I am ashamed of that one myself.

I can't believe you Northerners were not exposed to the sheer lunacy of Loony Tunes. Politics man, politics.

@elixirbronze: Well, my point is that none of that would really exist without Donald. Without Daffy, we probably wouldn't have Marvin the Martian, but Donald was the foundation for a whole world of characters who are more interesting than he is by himself.

The real answer to this question is Scrooge McDuck.

Daffy fo' sho'. When I think of Donald Duck, all I see is the short where he can't open a window. His intense anger really makes me uncomfortable.

Yeah, I was going to post this myself. This was one of the real mold-shattering cartoons, and demonstrated that you can make a distinct character regardless of his current looks or voice.

I think the first time I remember seeing Looney Tunes was Space Jam.

Anyway, I don't think Daffy and Donald are that comparable in Finland (and other Nordic countries?) other than being drawn ducks. Donald's a comic character first and foremost, the shorts are there but they aren't even a factor to me when you ask this question. My answer would be the same if they suddenly stopped existing

SCROOGE MCDUCK FUCK THE BULLSHIT

In the comic book series Ducktales is based off of, Donald did appear a lot more than he did on the show. And that comic book series was really excellent and groundbreaking stuff.

I don't particularly care for any flavor of anthropomorphic duck... If I had to choose, I supposed I'd say Daffy, because I remember watching Loony Toons with my dad as a kid, though I don't really have nostalgia for either, and watching these cartoons now doesn't do anything for me.

Even as a child I always thought the Disney cartoons were made for the stupid kids to watch while the Looney Tunes were on for those who had a better developed sense of humor.

As others have said, the correct answer is actually Scrooge McDuck.

Barring that, Donald works almost as well for an answer.

Daffy starred in some real classics like Duck Amuck and Rabbit Season/Duck Season. Donald was first but as far as cartoon shorts go, I'll always hold that Looney Tunes were superior to Mickey Mouse and Friends. So Daffy for me.

Donald Duck for sure. His memorable voice and the world created around him is amazing. Without him, there'd be no Scrooge McDuck or Ducktales.
