Daisy Duck (Mickey Mouse Works/Disney's House of Mouse/Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas)
Daisy Duck is a character in the Walt Disney Company. She is Donald Duck's girlfriend and best friend of Minnie Mouse.
NOTE: This only applies to how she was portrayed during Mickey Mouse Works, Disney's House of Mouse, and Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas.
- She was flanderized from being a kind, supportive, mature, and loving girlfriend of Donald to being a selfish, abusive, mean, bossy, spoiled, and obnoxious girlfriend.
- She is abusive to Donald and treats him like a slave rather than a boyfriend to the point where she barely cares for him.
- Not only is she a bad girlfriend to Donald, but she's also a bad friend to Minnie too.
- She only cares about being the center of attention and never her friends.
- She constantly annoys her friends and almost never apologizes for her actions.
- She is also incredibly stupid and airheaded as well.
- She would then get flanderized again, but only worse in Legend of the Three Caballeros.
Mickey Mouse Works
- She became obnoxious, immature, bossy, excessively talkative, and annoying to her friends.
- She became a bad friend to Minnie as she constantly annoys her and takes her for granted.
- In "Daisy Visits Minnie", she inconsiderately invites herself to Minnie's house and orders her around in her house, and acts very entitled with just about everything.
- In "Minnie Visits Daisy", she ignores Minnie who constantly tries to get her attention when she brings the apple pie for her that she asked to taste and causes her a lot of misfortunes and gets her arrested, but thankfully, Daisy gets her comeuppance when Minnie slams the pie in her face through the inmate phone.
- In "Daisy's Big Sale", she causes Minnie a lot of misfortunes by making her the test of her made-up bows and doesn't notice how Minnie is feeling about it.
- In "Daisy's Road Trip", she once again invites herself on Mickey and Minnie's date and puts them through hell by talking too much, punching them, and making them stop the car multiple times so she can go shopping. At the end, she left Mickey and Minnie behind.
- She has a tendency to overstay her welcome, often annoying her friends.
- She acts like she is entitled to everything and invites herself to her friends' places and bosses them around.
- She tends to treat Donald badly at times.
- In "Double Date Don", she tells Donald to build a brick wall so Clara Cluck won't spy on her when Daisy is shown spying on Clara multiple times, and jumps to conclusions about Donald cheating on her and not listening to his explanations.
- In "Whitewater Don", she invites her to Donald's fishing trip, thinking they're going on a romantic date, when Donald was literally going to go fishing by himself and ruins his fishing trip, such as throwing the fish back in the water and not noticing the predicaments he goes through.
- At the ending of "Donald's Dinner Date", she ungratefully blames Donald for the miserable service she had at the restaurant which Donald took her to for their dinner date when it's entirely the fault of their incompetent waiter Goofy.
- She is shown to be a hypocrite in "Donald's Dinner Date", as despite threatening to dump Donald for having a bad temper, later when the two go out to dinner where the incompetent Goofy served as their waiter, while Donald tries his hardest to control his temper despite Goofy's incompetence frustrating him to no end, Daisy seems to get progressively irritated and angrier as Goofy continuously screws up on the job as their waiter as the cartoon progresses. So much that when Daisy's anger reaches boiling point by the ending, she ends up throwing a huge temper fit like Donald and even blaming Donald for the miserable service she had at the restaurant when it's entirely Goofy's fault to begin with.
- She almost never notices the inconveniences she causes for her friends.
- She almost never gets her comeuppance for her actions which makes her a Karma Houdini.
Disney's House of Mouse
- She's just as bad as she was in Mickey Mouse Works as she is portrayed as even more egotistical, childish, and inconsiderate.
- Whenever she performs, it's usually rewritten of a Disney parody in her own delusions.
- In "Ladies' Night", she and Clarabelle destroy Minnie's scheduled phone, so they can have fun rather than take care of their responsibilities, showing how selfish she is.
- In "Unplugged Club", she slaps Donald when he kissed her, even though he's her boyfriend!
Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas
- Of all of her three "flanderized" incarnations here, she is at her absolute worst, almost on par with her counterpart from Legend of The Three Caballeros, due to the following reasons as described below.
- In "Belles on Ice", she is once again abusive to Donald as she mistreats him by shutting his beak when he was talking and snatching the bell away from him when he rang it and she tries to steal the spotlight from Minnie, starting their feud. But she later apologizes to her but doesn't apologize to Donald for her abusive nature towards him.
- In "Donald's Gift", she did much worse things than in both the segments "Belles on Ice" and "Christmas: Impossible", where here she forces Donald to go to the mall with her and his nephews, even though he was tired from going outside and only wanted to relax and enjoy his hot chocolate. She literally blames him for destroying the display when she forced Donald to come along and didn't even care that Donald wanted to relax and once again, doesn't apologize for her behavior towards him.
- She was massively redeemed after these entries where she got her old personality back beginning with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
- Bobs Gannaway, who worked on both Mickey Mouse Works' and House of Mouse, eventually learned from his mistakes and therefore undid her flanderization and returned Daisy to her old personality when working on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
- Of all of her three "flanderized" incarnations here, her character is arguably the least bad (or the most tolerable) in House of Mouse, though that isn't saying much.
- She has moments where she cares for her boyfriend Donald and her friends.
- Despite her notable decrease in intelligence in comparison to her original counterpart, there are also moments in the first two entries where she is more intelligent and level-headed than her more impulsive boyfriend Donald who often tends to resort to temper tantrums, which is clearly more evident in House of Mouse. A good example of this is in the House of Mouse pilot episode "The Stolen Cartoons", where she points out to Donald on how there is a lot more responsibility in running the entire House of Mouse night club than just changing it's name to the "House of Duck".
- Her voice actors, Diane Michelle and Tress MacNeille did a decent job voicing her.
- She is still likable outside of these entries.
- Her designs in all three entries look great.
- She at least sometimes apologizes to her friends if she realizes her wrongdoings.
- There are several occasions in both Mickey Mouse Works and House of Mouse were she does receive comeuppances for her actions;
- In the ending of the Mickey Mouse Works episode "Double Date Don" she finally realizes her mistakes and made it up to Donald for her actions when she finds out that Donald is getting married to Clara Cluck right after the former dumps him under false accusations of cheating on the latter, where it ends with Donald receiving Daisy's hot tub as he wanted for Valentines while Daisy builds the brick wall herself, much to the latter's dismay.
- In the ending of the Mickey Mouse Works episode "Minnie Visits Daisy" Daisy gets her comeuppance when Minnie slams the pie in her face through the inmate phone.
- She has funny moments in both shows.
- She sacrifices her duet with Mickey for Minnie after realizing she wanted to spend time with her boyfriend in the House of Mouse episode "Daisy's Debut".
- The first two entries wouldn't be as great as it is without her.
- These were at least attempts to give Daisy more of a personality with a comedic edge beyond being just "the love interest of Donald Duck", albeit with botched results. But other Mickey Mouse-related media have done this attempt correctly like in the movie Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers, and the TV shows Quack Pack, The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, and the DuckTales reboot.
