In Oregon, Eugene, Oregon University has a rather unique mascot of the Ducks nickname associated with all school athletics programs. The fans and the seemingly innocuous mascot, like the striking resemblance to the pig of Donald Duck, are not exactly the things that are usually faced by eye-catching fear in the hearts of opponents of the conference.
The University of Oregon mascot begins in Eugene, Oregon. In the coastal county of Lane County, Eugene has a metropolitan population of 340,000. In the age of 1876, an unusual nickname was chosen with Ducks. This strange nickname was "Webfoot". It is said that the strange expression of the first sports team at the University of Oregon was edited by an area developer named LISH Gregory. According to legend, the inexplicable nickname is in some way tied to the early Willamette Valley (Oregon) settlers whose ancestors were part of the fishing trade in Massachusetts. It seems that in the absence of a better alternative, the nickname lasted for about sixty years, while a new generation sports sportsman moved.
The concept of duck mascot was first performed in the 1930s when a tiny white duck Puddles started to appear great games. Puddles The duck was an instant hit with the students and the arms. The popularity of the cartoon in the 1940s depicted the first drawings of the cartoon of the Oregon Mask.
The illustrious depiction of a fancy masquerade showed an ever-growing similarity with Donald Duck, a well-known Disney animation creature. Fortunately, both school and fans have made a meaningful agreement to continue to use the likeness of Donald Duck. While in the most obvious twenty-first century, Disney and the University of Oregon would be in conflict with legal considerations, it was just as Oregon's athletic director, Leo Harris, had a relationship with a Disney cartoon, with Walt Disney, and developing an agreement , which was sealed with an informal handshake. This infamous handshake will be the controversial point when the lawyers of Disney Corporation dealt with the subject in the 1970s. Finally, a formal agreement was signed and signed that made it possible to use the similarity of Donald Duck to the liking of late Mr. Walt Disney.
The modern version of the University of Oregon is no longer mentioned as puddles. Nowadays, the Oregon's green and yellow dresses, the revised mascot most commonly heard are Donald Duck, Duck Duck, and Small Simplist "The Duck."
