Surely that should be Autograph Duck
12 August 2005 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Donald sneaks into a movie studio to get autographs from all his favorite stars in a big book. At first the stereotypical Irish cop chucks him out but Donald outwits him and seeks signatures from the likes of Mickey Rooney (who is still alive), Greta Garbo, Shirely Temple (who is also still alive) and others. But as soon as all the big stars in the studio find out Donald is in the midst they all hound him and he drowns in their own autographs books.

A simple idea and a weak plot and it's got those freaky-looking caricatures of real people again but I did find this funnier than usual.
