Scrooge McDuck is the wealthy
uncle of Donald, who first appeared in the 1947
comic 'Christmas on Bear Mountain.' Over the
years Scrooge has been in many different
projects. He can be found in movies such as 'DuckTales
the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp,' 'Mickey's
Christmas Carol,' 'Mickey's Once Upon a
Christmas,' 'Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas,'
and 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at
the House of Mouse.' Television shows such as 'DuckTales,'
'Mickey Mouse Works,' 'House of Mouse,' 'Raw
Toonage,' and a cameo in 'Mickey Mouse Club.' He
has also appeared in video games such as
DuckTales 1 and DuckTales 2, Deep Duck Trouble,
Disney's Party, Disney TH!NK Fast, DuckTales:
The Quest for Gold, the Kingdom Hearts games,
and The Lucky Dime Caper. He can also be found
in various merchandise such as comic books,
pins, clothing, and toys.
He lives in the town of
Duckburg in his mansion with his butler
Duckworth, his maid Mrs. Beakley who also serves
as nanny to his grand nephews Huey, Dewey,
Louie, and Mrs. Beakley's grand daughter
Webigail. Scrooge comes from a large family
which includes his Mother Downy, Father Fergus,
Brother Gideon, Sisters Hortense and Matilda,
Niece Della, Nephew Gladstone, Aunt Eider,
Nephew Donald, and Brother in law Ludwig Von
Drake. He has a personal pilot Launchpad McQuack
who flies him/crashes him to his adventures.
Other allies are Mickey Mouse, Gyro Gearloose,
Glittering Goldie, Goofy, Darkwing Duck, and
Fenton Crackshell aka GizmoDuck. While enemies
include Flintheart Glomgold, The Beagle Boys,
Pete, and Magica De Spell to name a few.
*FUN FACT* Every year
Forbes magazine does a Fictional 15, which lists
the richest fictional characters in the world.
In 2011 Scrooge was ranked #1 with a net worth
of $44.1 Billion Dollars.
Scrooge has worn a few
different outfits over the years, most being
worn in DuckTales. His most common outfit
depended on what you were seeing him in, because
in the comic books he wore mainly a red shirt
with grey trim, spectacles, a black top hat, a
walking cane, and gray spats. In DuckTales,
however, he wore more of the blue shirt with red
trim, spectacles, a red belt, a black top hat, a
walking cane, and red spats.
He was created by Carl Barks
who once lived 13 minutes south of where I live
now (way before my time but still awesome)! Carl
in my opinion was hands down the best
illustrator and comic creator ever. Scrooge has
been voiced by many people over the years such
as Bill Thompson, Dallas McKennon, Alan Young,
and Will Ryan.
Scrooge is a very rare
character these days at Walt Disney World and
Disneyland, but he can be seen quite often at
Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disneyland as a meet
and greet character. At Walt Disney World he is
mainly seen during Christmas season. You can
also find him in Fantasmic on the Riverboats,
Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, Mickey's
Once Upon a Christmas Parade, and he is one of
the lead characters at Tokyo Disneyland in A
Little Tale of Christmas. Finally you can find
him during Disney's Christmas Day Parade on ABC
every Christmas morning.
