Donald Duck[edit]

  • Gee Mr Spirit! There's a lot more to mathematics than two times two.
  • You sure find mathematics in the darndest places!


  • And without mathematics we couldn't even keep score.
    • Describing the presence of mathematics in baseball.
  • Well we can't all be mathematically perfect.
  • Everything is arranged according to mathematical number and shape.


  • Mathematics is the alphabet with which God has written the universe.
    • Galileo, quoted at the end of the film.
  • Stop.
    • A mighty strange voice (distinctly different from Donald Duck and The Spirit of Adventure) heard in some versions of the film after the "secret handshake." This voice may refer to any number of ancient sources such as the voice Nostradamus heard and wrote of in his Preface to Cesar.


  • Clarence Nash - Donald Duck (voice)
  • Paul Frees - The True Spirit of Adventure / Narrator (voice), and the Pi creature (voice)
  • Unknown - The billiards player, the Chess King (voice), and the Chess Queen (voice)
