  • Actually, unless I misread it, it looks like in the article, he says the first appearance was a Good Housekeeping article:

    The article reads:

    And now for the earliest known printing of Donald Duck in history ...

    An issue of Good Houskeeping magazine, dated June 1934 but released one month earlier in May 1934. Disney used this family-oriented publication to advertise upcoming cartoon theatrical shorts. Much like an older version of today's theatrical trailers, Disney used brilliant art to create a synopsis of the cartoon on a full page. The earliest existing images of Donald are in two of the panels. If you can find this magazine intact, keep it, as only few collectors are aware of the importance of this issue.
