Donald Duck Teaches Sacred Geometry in a Cartoon From the 50’s

Donald in Mathmagic Land is a 27-minute Donald Duck educational featurette, which was released on June 26, 1959. Once the film was made available to schools, it became one of the most popular educational films ever made by Disney.

Walt Disney explained the film by saying, “The cartoon is a good medium to stimulate interest. We have recently explained mathematics in a film and in that way excited public interest in this very important subject.”

Interestingly enough, revisiting the film now with an esoteric lens – there is a greater lesson to be learned from Mathmagic Land, which is not surprising since Disney was believed to be a scholar of the occult sciences. While many theorize that Disney was a 33rd degree Freemason, cause in part because of a multitude of conspiracies including the curious “Club 33” – he never actually joined a Masonic lodge. However, Disney was a member of the Mother Chapter of a group called the Demolay (named after Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar), and many of the members eventually go on to become Freemasons.


The video below is the original film, and is a great watch, whether you’re viewing with an intention of expanding your awareness of occult mathematics – or just curious to see a different side of Disney…

    The Demolay Order is a BS order with no ties to Masonry nor its values. You fail to omit in your verbose description of Disney (no, hun he wasn´t a scholar of the occult but a fascist pig) his life as a rabid anticommunist, a snitch for the blacklists, a chauvinist who hated women as a whole and another “NON-MYTHS” about Mr. Disney. BTW a little wikipedia couldve helped you out as DeMolays is a proto-fascist youth organization whose members are between 12 y 21 years old. So If Mr. Walt was a member was till he was 21. Sorry but try to do a bit of research before you go on just picking a Video (it´s geometry btw…the platonic solids are not “occult” but exoteric and spilling disinformation about a big fat bastard that IN NO WAY embodies masonic values (they were in fact chased by anti-communists in latin america and other parts of the world so calling a fascist a mason is an insult to Freemasons worlwide.

    This is an excellent cartoon geared toward teaching and encouraging interest in mathematics. We all need to have our minds stimulated frequently to keep us thinking. Math is awesome. We need to have more well-rounded math people in this world. Roxy Blades, grow up and learn. It sounds like you want to blast everything that does not agree with your ideas. There are many ways to learn. This cartoon is one of the best that I have seen that explains math and encourages exploration in math. Maybe Roxy, you should do a lot of exploration in math and find out that it is wonderful to work with. Without math you would not be on the internet nor would you have the internet nor your cell phone nor the many wonderful things available to us today.
