Feb 11: Donald's Temper

On this day in 1938, Disney's Donald Duck short Self Control (written by Carl Barks) was released.
In this short, directed by Jack King, Donald attempts to control his temper after hearing musical philosopher Smiling Uncle Smiley on the radio. Smiley's advice for having self control ... "laugh and count to ten." This theory is soon tested when a rascally woodpecker begins to irritate Donald. As hard as he tries, Donald eventually blows his lid ... and destroys his radio!
