    Have you thought about Shrek lately? Well, I have. Specifically, I've been thinking about the mystery that is Donkey. What do we know about him and where he came from? He is an animal of mystery... until you start to look a little closer. You see, I think Donkey has been hiding a big secret about where he came from and for good reason. Donkey may not be the good guy he pretends to be. Saddle up Theorists, this may be a bumpy ride.

Huh. I remember thinking Donkey was the character from the old testament bible story where a donkey talks. I mean, religion is just fairytales that people take too seriously, after all. I'm sure this comment won't be controversial. I'll just go ahead and thank you all ahead of time for the kind words.

Well someone didn't like the theory. Had a 4.7 earthquake at the last three minutes, I know this because I paused to get some cake and the earthquake happened on my way back to finish watching the video.

Or he could be the donkey from asop's fables, or Larned's fairy tales, or greek mythology, or German, or French, Russian... Pick literally any collection of fairy tales, seriously any of them.

Also I think when they are trying to get donkey to talk in Shrek 1 is a reference to pleasure island.

I always figured Donkey was based on Balaam's donkey in Numbers 22 in the Bible and the writers/directers/etc. wrote it in as a slight that the Bible is a "fairy tale". My problems with this are the donkey in Numbers is a female, there aren't any other Biblical characters (such as giants or etc) I can recall that are included in the Shrek franchise, and y'all have substantially more evidence to support your theory while I have conducted no research and merely made an assumption. However, my answers to this are: the cast was most likely already selected and the movie was written as a buddy comedy (thus Eddie Murphy as a casting made more sense than a female companion), the executives probably didn't want to obviously or directly offend anyone coming to see their movie, and I'll just have to do some research to clearly falsify my assumption. But hey, that's just a theory, a film theory.

But the island people are evil so maybe the kids aren't all bad which could mean donkey is an orphan who sticks to his survival instincts like not talking to the knight, not speaking of the island, and doing whatever it takes not to be captured again. And the fact that he puts himself in harms way for shrek after all his trauma shows he has grown as a person.

MATT you douche ! You just forgot to mention that at the very beginning of SHREK 1, Donkey does everything in his power to NOT TALK at all with the Guards. The old lady is trying to sell him probably because Donkey told her WTF was going on in Pleasure Island. This Might be the main reason of why Donkey later doesn't speak about the thing with no one. Even the Trustful Shrek.

Doesn't Donkey talk about going to high school? Also college. If he got caught at Pleasure Island, then he would not have been old enough to go to college because the kids are quite young in Pinnochio. This is even pointed out in one of Schafrillas' videos about Shrek that you plugged in the video. It is absurd, but so is this theory.

Count the years for how long one movie came after the other to see if donkey should be a adult donkey in shrek because he was a donkey when he was a kid just saying to make that theory into a yes series

I’m just confused about one thing. When puss and donkey switch bodies, and transport near far far away, donkey says “I haven’t been on a ride like that since college”. So if he was a boy when he first transformed, why would he say that?

Can’t believe I’m doing this. Donkey deserves some leeway, because he’s a survivor and it’s likely that nobody would ever believe him. Would you believe a talking donkey that he was turned into a donkey by an island?

Are we just going to ignore the fact that donkey likes to hang around Pinocchio a lot, almost as if their stories coincide with being attracted to one another in a family like way.

Maybe Donkey is from an alternative universe where he actually ends the events happening in Pleasure Island, thus preventing the events which caused Pinocchio to turn into a real human boy and that's also why he's still just a talking puppet.
