Fred Spencer was an American animator, who worked at Walt Disney Productions and wrote an influential analysis of Donald Duck as a considered authority on the character.

Career

After joining Walt Disney Productions in 1931, Spencer started working on several early Mickey Mouse cartoons and independently produced a two-tier Mickey Mouse comic strip the following year. Despite the fact that he was not connected with the comics department at Disney, the studio approved the project and the strip appeared in the national DeMolay newsletter. When Donald Duck was introduced at Disney in 1934, Spencer wrote an analysis of the character the following year which served as the standard for writing for, drawing, and animating him. His model sheets included in the report featured a redesigned version of Donald which was largely identical to his appearance today along with remarks on Donald's personality and mannerisms. In addition to animating several Disney short films, Spencer also worked on the studio's first feature length film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).
