The new Ducks logo, which is a D shaped like a duck foot, is actually a shoutout to Disney and Donald Duck for bringing them into existence. Mickey was insanely jealous and spiteful that Donald went behind his back to create a hockey team. Mickey had his own plans to create a hockey team called the Anaheim Mighty Mouses, but Donald schemed with Emilio Estevez to create the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
Anyway, no one cares about the duck foot D logo.
The true iconic logo in sports history is the Goldberg duck-shaped goalie mask. Everyone across the world knows this logo because it’s an exact replica of the mask Goldberg wore when he backstopped the Ducks to a state championship. This logo became so iconic that movies and cartoons were made.
You don’t see cartoons about Red Sox do you? That would be a pretty boring cartoon.
Anaheim tried to move away from this logo in an effort to appease Mickey in his ongoing war with Donald. Mickey is still the Disney cash cow, after all. That was the reason Anaheim dropped the Mighty from their team name, feeling it was a slap in the face to Mickey. It’s also the reason they got away from the cartoon logo and settled on the duck foot D.
After years of arguing and Twitter shade, it was Goofy who reminded Mickey and Donald what good friends they used to be and that Corey Perry was not worth it. Mickey agreed. Corey Perry was not worth it. They became friends again, the Ducks dragged the Goldberg mask out of retirement, and Mickey helped fund the Vegas Golden Knights.
All of this is a true story.
