This is another favorite of mine. We put a metaphysical gag in Pomp. Is Donald really a duck?
We couldn't resist this gag of the mythological creatures not making it on the ark. It's probably been done in many guises in New Yorker cartoons.
In a classic twist on an old cartoon them. Donald doesn't see stars or birdies. He sees animals running around his head.
My lead animator, Tim Allen, animated this scene and he visually showed how happy Donald was without using any words. He literally flies up when he kisses Daisy.
