    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.

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.

In the Grimm's Donkey, MatPat mentions that the donkey prince left with a loyal companion that never gets mentioned again. Then later removed his donkey skin to reveal a human beneath. Except that he was born a donkey. That's how he popped out, so he was definitely a donkey. Makes me think this "Loyal companion" got himself a donkey skin.

Well I think he faked how to not talk...that lady who sold him could work in a salt mine..but besides talking he has his human sentience..so he would have been able to refuse to work so he can get sold ...also Pinocchio is the only movie where all the villains get away with their crimes

Really good, but there is something wrong; the kids transformed in pleasure island can talk for a while, until they are totally transformed, that's why the guy says "he is not ready", considering shrek and donkey have been together for years he shouldn't be talking anymore.
