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.
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.
- Volume One contains "Adventures of J. Thaddeus Toad"
- Volume Two contains "A Day at Disneyland"
- Volume Three contains "Donald in Mathmagic Land"
- Volume Four contains "Bear Country"
- Volume Five contains "Magic and Music" and "Peter and the Wolf"
- Volume Six contains "Nature's Half Acre"
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:
- Volume Seven contains "Johnny Fedora and Alice Blue Bonnet" and "The Whale Who Wanted To Sing At the Met"
- Volume Twelve contains "In Shape with Von Drake"
- The Christmas Volume contains "The Making of Mickey's Christmas Carol"
