Ducks

Scrooge McDuckScrooge McDuck - Scottish relative (voice of Alan Young or Bill Thompson) of the quick-tempered Donald Duck who first appeared in 4-Color Comics No. 178 (1947) and later debuted in Uncle Scrooge Comics No. 1 (1951).

Scrooge McDuck wears a top hat, red coat, spectacles and spats and sometimes used a walking cane. He was noted for being the "richest duck in the world" and for owning a huge money vault (aka "The Money Bin") built by Oso Safe Company.

Inside the vault he stores his money in large swimming pool depressions and calculates the contents of each by checking its depth. Coveting his vast wealth were the Beagle Boys, a group of criminals who live in the town of Duckburg where his money is stored.

The Uncle Scrooge character later appeared on the animated TV cartoon, Scrooge McDuck and Money (1967) and as the star of the feature film short Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983).

In the 1990s, DUCKTALES, a syndicated animated adventure produced by Walt Disney studios featured tales of Scrooge McDuck and his grand-nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie inspired by the storylines from Disney licensed comic books drawn by artist Carl Barks from 1942-67.
