You may know all the characters from Disney if you grew up watching anything Disney. However, you probably don’t know the voice actor behind your favorites. As Disney prepares to celebrate Donald Duck’s 90th birthday, he and Daisy are having a chit-chat on the lawn. Donald Duck looked over and saw Emmy Award-winning voice actor Daniel Ross.
Recognizing the man responsible for his famous voice, Donald began frantically waving and clapping.
In true form, Daniel began using his iconic Donald Duck voice to carry on a brief conversation with the duck. One of the questions Daniel asked was if Donald liked the shirt he was wearing. It was a total fan-boy shirt covered with images of the famous duck.
Daniel Ross is only the third person to ever “officially” provide the voice for Donald Duck. Since the character is 90 years old, that’s a neat bit of trivia! Daniel began his stint voicing Donald Duck for Mickey and the Roadster Racers/Mickey Mouse Mixed-Up Adventures. Since then, he has been Donald for several short features and specials.
Daniel Ross also provides voices for Lucky Charms cereal mascot Lucky the Leprechaun. He was the voice of Gizmo and Stripe (Gremlins) in the MultiVersus Game and Mixmaster and Hound in Transformers: The Game. While most of his work is as a voice actor, Daniel also has spent time in front of the camera, appearing in several films and on TV.
Daniel Ross received the first-ever Children’s and Family Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice Performance in a Preschool Animated Program. The celebrated performance was for the special production of “Mickey and Minnie Wish Upon a Christmas.” Of course, Daniel Ross provided Donald Duck’s voice.
