Grandpa Duck, also known as Grandpappy, is Donald Duck's pioneering grandfather, who teaches him the virtues of hunting in Disney's 1955 animated short No Hunting.

He reappeared in the Disneyland episode "Your Host, Donald Duck".

He is generally considered to be the same character as Grandma Duck's husband, given his name and looks.


Grandpa Duck on the 1994 Duck Family Tree.

When Grandpa Duck reappeared in the Duck Family Tree drawn by Giovan Battsita Carpi (first printed in 1994), he and Grandma Duck's husband (as he appeared in The Good Old Daze from 1964) were shown on different portraits. Grandma Duck's husband was here called 'Nonno di Paperino' ('Donald's grandpa'), while Grandpa Duck from the 1955 cartoon was called 'Bisnonno di Paperino' ('Donald's great-grandpa'), implying that he is in fact one generation older than Humperdink. This information is, however, not given in the original cartoon in which Grandpa appeared.
