Waltl Disney's cartoon character Donald Duck first teamed up with Disney's Mickey Mouse in the 1934 cartoon feature "Orphan's Benefit." And though Mickey Mouse was the most successful cartoon character of the 1930s, most scholars agree that Donald Duck was Disney's second-most successful cartoon character. Disney and his firm knew the value of spin-off merchandise early on, and toys and games related to the characters abound. Parker Brothers licensed Donald Duck for a 1938 party game for children. A roll-and-move game, the winner collects three tokens. Each has a task, such as "sing a song," printed. The winner must perform all three tasks at game's end.
