The official voice of Donald Duck on the Disney Middle East channel took to Twitter Sunday, explaining his hatred for Zionism and the state of Israel.
Dear Sgt. Shaft: Thank you so much for all you did to help me. ... I had a wonderful time on my trip.

While Mickey Mouse has been the face of The Walt Disney Co. for more than 80 years, I don't think he's anyone's favorite toon.

Researchers say fireworks probably startled thousands of blackbirds that fell dead from the skies in a small Arkansas town shortly before midnight on New Year's Eve.
Fuzzy or fierce? Sweet or scary? Goofy or graceful?
First of two parts.
"Not sure I could at the moment," he said. "I think I've answered everyone's questions."
"Obviously when it comes to voting, there's going to be some leniency toward your friends," Donald said. "There's still more American players on the U.S. tour, and I'm sure Rickie has more followers and peers that follow him on the U.S. tour. Again, it's a vote, so it's totally subjective."
