Donald Duck Meets the Partridge Family

Disney-influences-Television

Actually, he really only meets Danny (Danny Bonaduce) from the family, and two hoods set on putting the fear of a mob boss into our little protagonist. This week’s entry comes from the first season of the Partridge Family in episode 7 entitled Danny and the Mob (1970 airdate).

And here comes Danny now:

Patridge Duck

This is a great old Donald Duck inflatable that Danny wears during the scene. As you can see, Danny seems pretty care free at the moment, but Donald… not so much!

Donald gets biffed

And now I guess we can see why. While trying to intimidate Danny, the two hoods end up elbowing Donald in the face! Ouch.

Upon closer inspection of the inflatable, you can see that other Disney characters are depicted on the ring:

You can just make out Mickey and Donald, but I can’t quite tell who the others are. Maybe Eeyore in the front right corner? I also spotted a copyright name on Donald’s neck, as you can see below:

Copyrighted Duck

Again, it’s hard to make out, but I’m pretty sure it says ‘Walt Disney Productions’ under his name, which makes this a pre-1987 product. As the production company probably would have picked up props like this as new items, then it is probably from 1970, the date of the episode.

Quack!
