According to a report in the London Daily Express, a Finnish researcher has found Donald Duck more likely to make children violent than Rambo. Rambo's victims are obviously dead, noted the Finn, but cartoon victims bounce back, no matter how awful their injuries. Worse, said Kaj Bjorkkvist, the violence is supposed to be funny .

In Hollywood, a Disney spokesman defended Donald as a duck who stands "for peace, not violence."
