The History and Filmology of Scrooge McDuck

Scrooge McDuck is a fictional character created by artist and storywriter, Carl Barks for the Walt Disney Company. He was created in 1947 and modeled after a character that appeared in a 1943 Disney Propaganda short for the war about being thrifty and supporting the war with your tax dollars.


Scrooge McDuck officially began his career in Fall of 1947 when Carl Barks while working for Disney created an Antagonistic uncle for popular Disney character, Donald Duck for a comic book entitled Christmas at Bear Mountain.


Scrooge was originally named after the penny-pinching character from Charles Dicken’s 1843 book, A Christmas Carol. He is described as an elderly thrifty, tightwad and unfriendly, but over the years some of those qualities have been down-played. He was originally considered generous and kind, but the attack of enemies caused him to become more grouchy.


He is usually found wearing a blue or red top coat and spats with Pince-nez glasses perched at the middle of his peak. He is portrayed as a Scotsmen with an accent.


He is a wealthy business man and an "adventure capitalist. He was the son of Fergus McDuck and Downy O' Drake and brother to  Matilda McDuck and Hortense McDuck (Donald and Della Ducks' Mother) making him Donald and Della's maternal uncle and the great uncle of Huey, Dewy and Louie Duck.


He is considered the richest person in the universe and has been listed in Forbes Magazine as one of the Top 15 richest fictional character in the World.


He also goes by the nicknames... Uncle Scrooge (by Donald Duck and his nephews), Mr. McDee (by Launchpad McQuack), and Scroogy (by his enemy, Flintheart Glamgold).
