Donald Duck, The Cannibal

There is something strange over at the Duck household. Not only at the Thanksgiving meal but throughout the year.

Is it normal for an uncle feeding his nephews the dead of his kind for a meal?

It only seems to happen with Donald. Who would like to eat mice or dogs? Duck on the other hand…

It seems that he’s an all-round serial killer. Not only hunting and eating other birds, but also trying to it to his nephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie.

We already know that Donald has some anger issues that he has to deal with. Could this be down to his service as a paratrooper in World War II? Could he be suffering from PTSD? It would explain his mood swings, temper tantrums and nightmares.

Not only that, his friends are also aware of his yearnings for duck. They have invited him round and fed him duck.

We look back at the golden era of cartoons with, in a way, rose-tinted spectacles. We ignored the racism that was rampant because it was funny.  Other things that we ignore is things like this.  Mainly because we don’t notice this sort of thing.

The evidence that Donald is a cannibal are quite high.  The issue with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder on the other hand.  That can be left to the experts.
