Clara Cluck is a character who was created by The Walt Disney Company. She debuted in the 1934 Mickey Mouse cartoon Orphan's Benefit. She is an operatic chicken and an old friend of Mickey Mouse.

History

Orphansbenefit5

Clara Cluck in her first appearance, Orphan's Benefit.

It is possible that Clara Cluck played the title role in The Wise Little Hen (June 9, 1934), as both characters were voiced by the same person, Florence Gill, and there is more than just a passing physical resemblance. However, by the time she made her big debut in the original version of Orphan's Benefit, she had changed into an over-sized operatic diva; a role that she would continue in until the end. Clara's singing is meant to be a caricature of the Bel Canto style of Opera singing popular at the time of her appearance. Some of her arias are clearly modeled on those of Tosca. Her last major appearance was as one of the musicians in Symphony Hour. Curiously, although she is seen in the rehearsal scenes at the beginning, she is not seen in the performance scenes at the end. Clara is also in a Silly Symphony.

Comics

Despite Clara's absence from most other Disney media, Clara has remained a major supporting character in the Disney Comic universe. She is usually seen with the rest of the classic Disney cast. In most adaptations, she is seen speaking properly rather than her usual clucks from her appearance in Disney cartoons. She has been seen dating Panchito Pistoles on very few occasions.

Later animation

Clara makes a non-speaking cameo at the end of Who Framed Roger Rabbit along with the other classic cartoon characters joining in singing "Smile Darn Ya Smile", celebrating Roger's innocence as they parade back to Toontown.

In Mickey's Christmas Carol, she can be seen dancing at Fezziwig's party.

Clara made some appearances in Mickey Mouse Works (1999), where she is presented as Daisy Duck's neighbor. She also made occasional appearances in House of Mouse.

In the new Mickey Mouse shorts, Clara appears at the end of "Bad Ear Day" as an opera singer in the theater. However, her feathers are colored white instead of their usual brown.

Clara is also set to appear in the Disney Junior series Mickey and the Roadster Racers.
