Donald's Happy Birthday is a Donald Duck short cartoon.


Huey Dewey and Louie earn enough money to buy their Uncle Donald Duck a birthday present. Donald, not knowing what the money is for, wants the kids to save their money for a rainy day. The boys manage to get the money back and buy Donald a box of cigars. Donald thinks the boys have taken up smoking and force them to smoke the cigars.



  • Louie's name is spelled "Louie" on the piggy bank, but as "Luey" on Donald's birthday present.
