Scrooge McDuck is an iconic Disney cartoon character, created in 1947.
The popular and rich uncle of Donald Duck, Scrooge is known for his love of money. Having gathered billions by various means, by the late 1940s he had amassed a fortune unequalled by any other duck in history. Despite this wealth, Scrooge is not without a soft heart.
Created by Carl Barks for a December 1947 comic book called ‘Christmas on Bear Mountain’, Scrooge was an immediate success. This led to his own series of quarterly comic books commencing in late 1953.
In 1967 Scrooge went on to star in the film Scrooge McDuck and Money where he was voiced by Bill Thompson. This was followed in 1983 by Mickey’s Christmas Carol. Scrooge’s growing popularity lead shortly after to him becoming the driving force behind the hugely successful animated television show DuckTales (1987 – 1992).
Today Scrooge McDuck is loved by fans around the world, and is one of Disney’s most enduringly popular characters.
