Old MacDonald Duck is an animated cartoon from 1941 in which Donald Duck is a farmer. Donald is disturbed by an insect when he tries to milk the cow Clementine.


Donald Duck works as a farmer in a farm.



The cartoon takes its title from the children's song Old MacDonald Had a Farm that Donald sings while feeding his animals. Later on, while milking Clementine, Donald sings also the American folk ballad Oh My Darling, Clementine. Also, there is once again, "Turkey in the straw" as backgroundmusic, as in "Steamboat willie" and "Band concert".
