Donald Duck Presents
Donald Duck Presents
was a television series that aired on The Disney Channel in the 1980s. It showed Disney's classic cartoons. A similar show called Good Morning, Mickey aired on the channel around the same time. Although Donald Duck shorts were the primary programming, additional cartoons featuring Goofy, Mickey Mouse, Chip 'n' Dale, Pluto, as well as Silly Symphonies, Disney featurettes, and others Disney-based shorts were shown. It was first aired on September 1, 1983, a few months after Disney Channel was launched. Its timeslot for its early run was at 8:00 AM Eastern Time, making it the third program of the Disney Channel's 16 (later 18) hour programming day.

Brief clips and segues featuring Donald Duck typically were placed between each short. The shorts oftentimes were edited down, removing the opening and closing credits, and in some cases, edited for length.

The opening of the show featured a cavalcade of scenes from classic Disney shorts, and a theme song. Unlike the opening of Good Morning, Mickey, which features all of the characters in the theme, the opening of Donald Duck Presents features only Donald (and the nephews).

It was replaced by Donald's Quack Attack in 1992.

Donald's Quack Attack

In 1993, just as how Good Morning, Mickey was replaced with Mickey's Mouse Tracks, the show was replaced by Donald's Quack Attack.

Quack Attack had a new feature. In the bumpers, they had "Donald's Quack Attack Meter." In these bumpers, when Donald gets into a temper tantrum, the meter flies up and the bell rings and the red light flashes.

VHS release

This show was released only on VHS PAL in the UK as part of a six-volume set which also each featured an episode of Good Morning, Mickey, Welcome to Pooh Corner, The Mouse Factory and Mousercise. Unlike the stateside version of Donald Duck Presents, however, there were no cartoon shorts released; that position was filled by Good Morning, Mickey. Instead, it contained different Disney featurettes.

In Australia, six more VHS tapes (for a total of twelve) were released containing additional featurettes. Along with the six new tapes, one Christmas-themed one was also released:
