This article includes a list of characters from the Disney DuckTales animated franchise, including the original 1987 series and the 2017 reboot series, as well as one theatrical movie and a variety of merchandise, including video games (most notably DuckTales and its updated remake DuckTales: Remastered) and comics. Prior to the series, many of the characters appeared in the Uncle Scrooge comic book stories, in particular the ones created by Carl Barks.[1]

Main characters[edit]

Scrooge, Huey, Dewey and Louie, as they appear in the original 1987 series.

Scrooge McDuck[edit]

Scrooge McDuck (voiced by Alan Young in the 1987 series, DuckTales the Movie, and DuckTales: Remastered; David Tennant in the 2017 series) is the richest duck in the world and the main protagonist of the series, originally created by Carl Barks for his 1947 story "Christmas on Bear Mountain".
In the 1987 series Scrooge is constantly seeking ways to further increase his wealth (his favorite pastime appears to be treasure hunting), and to avoid losing it. He is a self-made billionaire who left Scotland in his youth and came to America with his Number One Dime, eventually establishing his home in McDuck Manor and erecting his famous Money Bin.[2] He sports a blue jacket with red cuffs and a red collar.
For the 2017 reboot, Scrooge's Scottish background is the same, and he is a well known as a seasoned "adventure-capitalist". In his younger days he used to conduct adventures with his nephew Donald and niece Della joining him.[3] However, an incident occurred that led to the three of them parting ways, with Della disappearing, Donald and Scrooge becoming estranged, and Scrooge losing the spark for adventure.[4] Ten years after this incident, as seen in the pilot episode, Scrooge regains this spark when he is reunited with Donald and introduced to his grand-nephews for the first time.[3] The reboot sees him wearing a red jacket with visible pockets and black cuffs and collar, as per his comic book appearance.

Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck[edit]

Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck (voiced by Russi Taylor in the 1987 series, DuckTales the Movie, and DuckTales: Remastered; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan, respectively, in the 2017 series) are nephews of Donald Duck through his sister Della, and the grand-nephews of Scrooge. They were originally created in 1937.
In the original 1987 series, the triplets are sent to Scrooge to stay with him, while their uncle leaves to join the navy. All three tend to be playful and mischievous, while also being devoted members of the Junior Woodchucks scouts. They are identical in appearance and personality, and wear identical outfits – a cap and jumper – with the only difference between each of them being the color of their clothing: Huey wears red, Dewey wears blue, and Louie wears green. The introduction of this scheme by DuckTales was adapted for later use in future animations that featured the triplets.
For the 2017 reboot, Huey, Dewey and Louie are depicted as slightly older preteens, and given distinct appearances, voices and personalities – Huey is the eldest of the triplets and the smartest of the group, a devoted Junior Woodchuck wearing a red short-sleeved shirt and cap; Dewey, wearing a blue long-sleeved T-shirt, is the most adventurous sibling and the one most eager to find out whatever happened to their mother Della; and Louie, dressed in a green hoodie, is the youngest of the trio and the most easygoing and laid-back brother. Although all three are mischievous and sneaky around Donald, they are wide-eyed admirers of Scrooge's fortune and the legends of his adventures. Initially, the trio are sent to stay with Scrooge while Donald attends a job interview during the premiere episode,[3] but after renewing Scrooge's spirit for adventure (and Dewey accidentally wrecking their houseboat), Donald and the nephews move into McDuck Manor and accompany him on his new adventures.

Webby Vanderquack[edit]

Webby in the 1987 series

Webbigail "Webby" Vanderquack (voiced by Russi Taylor in the 1987 series, DuckTales the Movie, and DuckTales: Remastered; Kate Micucci in the 2017 series) is the granddaughter of Mrs. Beakley and created for the DuckTales show.
In the original 1987 series, she is characterized as younger than the nephews, despite being the same size. She is typically wearing a pink shirt and a large hairbow, usually timid, and often have difficulties being accepted by the boys.[5]
In the 2017 reboot, Webby is around the boys' age and smarter and somewhat of a tom boy, with her character wearing a pink and blue sweater vest, a purple skirt, and a smaller hairbow on her right-side. She is revealed to be an enthusiastic adventure fan and Clan McDuck historian who idolizes Donald Duck as one of the greatest adventurers of all time.[6] Having spent most of her life sheltered from the outside world by her grandmother (among the activities withheld from her prior to her befriending Huey, Dewey and Louie are theme park visits[7] and sledding[8]), Webby's curiosity drives her towards new experiences as the nephews' arrival in McDuck Manor finally causes Beakley to allow her more freedom. While they boys find her slightly intimidating upon their first meeting, they soon accept her as a close friend, and her optimism and energy often help encourage them.[6][5]

Launchpad McQuack[edit]

Launchpad McQuack (voiced by Terry McGovern in the 1987 series, DuckTales the Movie, and DuckTales: Remastered; Beck Bennett in the 2017 series) is Scrooge's pilot, and an original DuckTales character. He is an able flyer, but is somewhat incompetent and rarely ever lands a plane safely, usually crashing them and walking away without injury.
In the original 1987 series, he uses the motto "If it has wings, I can crash it", and revealed in later episodes to be of Irish descent and having an ancestor who was involved in the Civil War. His physical appearance is somewhat heroic, with his clothing being similar to that of early era pilots, including a leather cap with flight goggles, an aviation scarf, and a brown flight jacket with light brown pants. The character later appeared as a main character in Disney's Darkwing Duck, appearing in most episodes of that series.
For the 2017 reboot, Launchpad works for Scrooge as his limo driver to begin with, before being placed in charge of piloting various craft besides planes. While his physical appearance is the same as his 1987 counterpart, he wears an outfit resembling that of private commercial pilots from the 40s/50s, including a baseball cap, a bomber jacket with a fur lined collar, a green undershirt, and white slacks.

Bentina Beakley[edit]

Beakley in the 2017 series

Mrs. Bentina Beakley (voiced by Joan Gerber in the 1987 series and DuckTales the Movie; Wendee Lee in DuckTales: Remastered; Toks Olagundoye in the 2017 series) is the housekeeper and nanny of the household, and the maternal grandmother of Webby. Like her granddaughter, Beakley is an original DuckTales character.
In the original 1987 series, she is shown as a gentle woman of upper middle age and sweet on her granddaughter, while wearing a purple dress and large white apron over her front and having two hair pins to maintain her hairstyle. Prior to the series she used to be a nanny for a young Lord Graydrake,[9] and she has proven to be a capable opera singer.[10]
In the 2017 reboot, her character is more down-to-earth than the other residents of McDuck Manor, often offering advice to Scrooge and the ducklings, while taking offense at being treated as her employer's secretary. She is much more resourceful than the 1987 version, and her backstory includes a career as an agent for the secret espionage organisation S.H.U.S.H., where her codename was "Agent 22" and through which she first met Scrooge.[11] Though her physical appearance is similar to her 1987 counterpart, with clothing similar to a nanny, and an apron around her waist, she is lacking any hair pins, and has proven to possess an impressive strength.[4] Her nationality is also changed to British. After years of being overprotective of Webby, the nephews' arrival causes her to agree to let her granddaughter be a part of Scrooge's adventures.[3] Donald refers to her as "Mrs. B" and the two do not get along at first though when the kids are kidnapped by the Beagle Boys they join forces and eventually gain respect for each other, albeit Donald is uncomfortable with the revelation that Beakley is a trained spy.[7] Initially Beakley also dislikes Webby's friend Lena, regarding her as a bad influence, but after Lena saves her life she becomes more accepting.[12] Beakley's relationship with Scrooge's butler Duckworth is frosty, due to him criticizing her housework.[13]

Donald Duck[edit]

Donald in the 2017 series

Donald Duck (voiced by Tony Anselmo in the 1987 series and the 2017 series) is a signature Disney character, originally debuting in the 1934 animated short "The Wise Little Hen".
In the 1987 series, his appearance was deliberately downplayed, in order to give more focus to Scrooge and the boys.[14][15] After leaving his nephews with Scrooge in order to serve with the US Navy,[16] he makes occasional appearances as a guest character in some episodes, while in others he is mentioned via mail and pictures he sends to Scrooge and his nephews. He doesn't make any appearances after the first season.
For the 2017 reboot, Donald's appearance is significantly increased to involve him in the adventures of Scrooge and his nephews, which included changing a part of the background between him and his uncle. In the reboot, he and Scrooge used to adventure together, until an incident occurred that caused them to drift apart and not speak to each other for ten years.[3] After Donald discovers his nephews plan to be alone to cause some mischief with their houseboat, Donald reluctantly reunites with Scrooge in order to get him to babysit the boys. After a mishap leads him to becoming involved in a new adventure with Scrooge (and losing him his houseboat), Donald agrees to move his family to McDuck Manor while still trying to maintain his independence. In addition to increasing his appearance, the reboot also sees him wearing the black sailor suit that he wears in many of the comics upon which the show is based. Like in the comics, Donald's main character treats are his bad luck and short temper, while he's also struggling to be a good parent figure to his nephews.

Supporting characters[edit]

Appearing in both series[edit]

  • Gyro Gearloose (voiced by Hal Smith in the 1987 series; Chris Edgerly in DuckTales: Remastered; Jim Rash in the 2017 series) – Gyro Gearloose is a skilled inventor, originally created by Carl Barks in 1952. His inventions often help drive an episode's plot, as they do not always work as designed.
    In the 1987 series he is a mild-mannered, although somewhat absent minded, man who often works for Scrooge, designing anything from relocation rays[17] to time machines[18]. Despite being duped once in a while by the Beagle Boys, Gyro is generally extremely clever and resourceful.
    In the 2017 series, debuting in the episode "The Great Dime Chase!",[4] the somewhat arrogant, abrasive, and rather impatient Gyro is employed by Scrooge as his head of Research and Development, working in a secret lab under the Money Bin.
    • Little Bulb – Little Bulb is an invention of Gyro; a small (non-speaking) humanoid robot with a lightbulb for a head. In the original comic books he is named Little Helper and was created by Carl Barks in 1956.
      In the 1987 series his appearance is downplayed, often appearing as a minor comic relief.
      In the 2017 series Little Bulb is introduced in in the episode "The Great Dime Chase!" as Gyro's new invention who malfunctions and turns himself into a giant money-collecting robot.[4] Later, in "Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System!", his design is copied by Mark Beaks for his B.U.D.D.Y. drone as a result of an unauthorized crowd sourcing by Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera.[19]
  • Fenton Crackshell (1987) or Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera (2017), a.k.a. Gizmoduck (voiced by Hamilton Camp in the 1987 series; Eric Bauza in DuckTales: Remastered; Lin-Manuel Miranda in the 2017 series) – Fenton Crackshell is an everyday office clerk who accidentally becomes robotic superhero Gizmoduck. The Gizmoduck character was originally pitched by Tad Stones as "Roboduck" (inspired by the movie "RoboCop"), alongside "Bubbaduck" (which evolved into Bubba the Cave Duck) and "Spaceduck" (who never made it to the show), and made his debut in the second season of the show.[20][21]
    In the 1987 series Fenton doubles as Scrooge's accountant (as himself) and his personal bodyguard (as Gizmoduck), hired by Scrooge in the second season.[22][23] He can count at a blazing speed, but he generally is incompetent with almost everything else. Furthermore, his regular dogged attempts to rectify his mistakes tends to make things worse until he ultimately succeeds. He exhibits a remarkably different personality in his role as Gizmoduck, as his high-powered suit gives him courage to make daring decisions and act as a strong leader and a hero. He makes a few guest appearances in Darkwing Duck.[24][25][26][27][28]
    In the 2017 series, he is re-imagined as a Latin American intern working under Gyro Gearloose,[29] and debuts in the episode "Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System!". Aside from his occupation and appearance, his other traits in the 2017 series both as Fenton and as Gizmoduck remain relatively the same as in the 1987 series.[19]
  • Duckworth the Butler (voiced by Chuck McCann in the 1987 series, DuckTales the Movie, and DuckTales: Remastered; David Kaye in the 2017 series) – Duckworth is Scrooge's longtime, no-nonsense butler-chauffeur, the a jack-of-all-trades of McDuck Manor, and an important member of Scrooge's staff, created for the DuckTales series. Despite having "Duck" in his name, he is actually an anthropomorphic dog.
    In the 1987 series, he worked for Scrooge even before the nephews moved in, and was Scrooge's only household servant until the hiring of Mrs. Beakley. He first appears in the first part of the pilot episode,[16] and appears as a supporting character throughout the series, with his only starring roles occurring in the episode "Duckworth's Revolt"[30] and the episode-segment "Take Me Out of the Ballgame".[31]
    In the 2017 series, Duckworth died years prior to the series' beginning and was mentioned to be the only one who throws Scrooge a party. After accidentally being summoned back to the world of the living by Black Arts Beagle in the episode "McMystery at McDuck McManor!",[13] he rescues Scrooge from Black Arts Beagle's box and placed Huey, Dewey, and Louie in a mystery game to figure out who abducted Scrooge McDuck. After secretly disposing of Flintheart Glomgold, Mark Beaks, and Ma Beagle, Duckworth assumes the form of a shadowy demon that is summoned by Black Arts Beagle only for the demon to turn on him and go after Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Duckworth's identity is revealed when Huey, Dewey, and Louie found that Scrooge orchestrated his own abduction. Duckworth's ghost has since returned to his duties as Scrooge's faithful butler.
  • Doofus Drake (voiced by Brian Cummings in the 1987 series; John Gemberling in the 2017 series) – Doofus Drake is an acquaintance of Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and an original DuckTales character.
    In the 1987 series he is their close friend, a devoted Junior Woodchuck scout, and Launchpad's sidekick. Generally speaking, Doofus is a rather dim-witted and clumsy character, with a positive attitude as insatiable as his appetite. He exhibits hero worship for Launchpad, which frequently borders on the delusional (the relationship between Doofus and Launchpad in many ways mirrors that of Launchpad and Scrooge). Doofus is also marked by his strong moral compass, best demonstrated in the episode "Superdoo!", in which he uses newly acquired superpowers to save the Junior Woodchucks from catastrophe only to voluntarily relinquish them for the sake of hard work and friendship. He debuts in the episode "Where No Duck Has Gone Before" and doesn't appear after the first season.[32]
    In the 2017 series, Doofus debuts in the episode "Day of the Only Child!",[33] and has been reimagined as a spoiled brat who lets his money control his personality, and forces his parents to serve as his butler and maid. When Louie, seeing the benefits of having a rich friend, tries to befriend him, Doofus rapidly grows deeply possesive of him, even trying to have him locked up inside his mansion.
  • Goldie O'Gilt, a.k.a. Glittering Goldie (voiced by Joan Gerber in the 1987 series; Allison Janney in the 2017 series) – Goldie O'Gilt is Scrooge's longtime love interest, and an original Carl Barks character from the 1952 comic book story "Back to the Klondike".
    In the 1987 series, she first appears in the episode based on and named after the Barks story, where her origins as a music hall singer in Dawson is shown.[34] She reappears in the episodes "Scroogerello",[35] "'Till Nephews Do Us Part",[36] and "Ducky Mountain High".[37]
    In the 2017 series, she first appears in the episode "The Golden Lagoon of White Agony Plains!", as Scrooge's former girlfriend, partner, and rival, outcunning both Glomgold and Scrooge. While she admittingly "always loved gold more than she loved Scrooge", the pair's mutual affection and respect go deep.[38]
  • M'Ma Crackshell (1987) or M'Ma Cabrera (2017) (voiced by Kathleen Freeman in the 1987 serie; Selenis Leyva in the 2017 series) – M'Ma is Fenton's mother.
    In the 1987 series, she is a couch potato who spends most of her time watching soap operas in her bathrobe. She debuts alongside her son in the first episode of the five-part story "Super DuckTales".[22]
    In the 2017 series, she is reimagined as a no-nonsense Latina police officer.[39] While living an active life, she is a devoted telenovela fan, as seen in her debut in "Who Is Gizmoduck?!".[40]
  • Gladstone Gander (voiced by Rob Paulsen in the 1987 series; Paul F. Tompkins in the 2017 series) – Gladstone Gander is Donald Duck's cousin, debuting in Carl Barks' "Wintertime Wager" from 1948. Much to his relatives' annoyance, he is unfailingly lucky.
    In the 1987 series he appears in the episodes "Dime Enough for Luck"[41] and "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. McDuck",[42] while also making a non-speaking cameo appearance in "Sweet Duck of Youth".[4]
    In the 2017 series he is introduced in the episode "The House of the Lucky Gander!",[43] living in the Macau-like city Macaw where he is a prisoner of Toad Liu Hai until Scrooge is able to free him.
  • Ludwig Von Drake (voiced by Corey Burton in the 1987 series and the 2017 series) – Ludwig Von Drake is an established Disney character, appearing in several Disney animation productions beginning in 1961. Often referred to as Donald's uncle, he is usually described as scientist and self-proclaimed universal expert.
    In the 1987 series, he only makes one appearance, as a psychiatrist treating Launchpad in the episode "The Golden Fleecing".[44]
    In the 2017 series he debuts in "From the Confidential Case Files of Agent 22!", appearing in a flashback segment as the resourceful director of international spy organization S.H.U.S.H.,[11] a position held by J. Gander Hooter in the Darkwing Duck version of the organization.

    In the 1987 series she appeared in the episodes "Dinosaur Ducks",[45] "Blue Collar Scrooge",[46] and "Yuppy Ducks",[47] as well as in DuckTales the Movie.
    In the 2017 series, debuting in the episode "The Great Dime Chase!",[4] she is the archivist of Scrooge's personal archive, having served him for the last 50 years. Dedicated to the point of obsession, she is perfectly willing to terrorize the children if they refuse to heed her bizarre set of rules.
  • Downy (voiced by June Foray in the 1987 series) and Fergus McDuck (voiced by Don Messick in the 1987 series; Graham McTavish in the 2017 series[48]) – Downy and Fergus McDuck are Scrooge's parents.
    In the 1987 series they are simply referred to as MacMama and MacPapa, appearing in flashbacks in the episode "Once Upon a Dime",[2] were they are shown living as farmers in a small cottage. They are also alluded to in the episode "The Curse of Castle McDuck".[49]
    Initially in the 2017 series, they only appear in portraits at McDuck Manor.[3]

Exclusive to the 1987 series[edit]

  • Admiral Grimitz (voiced by Peter Cullen impersonating John Wayne) – Admiral Grimitz is the navy commander on the aircraft carrier that Donald is a midshipman on. He always gets annoyed at Donald's accident-prone stunts, and likes to play with military equipment that makes things "go ka-blooey". His name is a spoof of Admiral Chester W. Nimitz. He makes several appearances during the show's first season, debuting in the first part of the pilot episode.[16]
  • Bubba the Caveduck (voiced by Frank Welker in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered) – Bubba is a young caveduck that Scrooge adopts after he stowed away in Gyro's time-machine the Millennium Shortcut. The character was originally pitched, as "Bubbaduck", by Tad Stones, and – following some redesign – introduced in the show's second season.[20][21] He first appears in the five-part episode "Time Is Money", which opens season two.[17] He quickly befriends Huey, Dewey and Louie, and to accommodate him, Scrooge builds a replica of Bubba's original habitat on the McDuck Manor property.
  • Gandra Dee (voiced by Miriam Flynn) – Ganda Dee is Fenton's girlfriend. Her name is a pun on the actress Sandra Dee. Following her introduction in the five-part episode "Super DuckTales",[22] she reappears in "Metal Attraction",[50] "The Big Flub",[51] and "The Duck Who Knew Too Much".[52]

Exclusive to the 2017 series[edit]

  • The Buzzard Brothers (voiced by Marc Evan Jackson) – The three Buzzard Brothers (of which two have had their first names revealed: Bentley[3] and Bradford[4]) make up the board of directors of Scrooge's company. They first appear in the two-part pilot,[3] and typically attempt to convince Scrooge that the company needs to cut the spendings.
  • Roxanne Featherly (voiced by Kari Wahlgren) – Roxanne Featherly is a green-feathered duck working as a news reporter in Duckburg (a role similar to Webra Walters of the original series), debuting in the pilot episode "Woo-oo!".[3] She later proves to be perfectly willing to bend the truth to juice up the news.[53]
  • Della Duck – Della Duck is the mother of Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and Donald's twin sister. While the character had previously appeared in Disney comics, this is her first appearance in any animated media.[54] She made her first major appearance within the franchise in a flashback story in issue #2 of the DuckTales comic book.[55]
    Prior to the events of the series, and before Donald and Scrooge became estranged, she used to go adventuring with her brother and uncle. She has since disappeared, with Donald having raised the boys in her absence, and initially in the series she only appear on photos and paintings.[3] Seemingly having vanished with a relic called The Spear of Selene,[4] and with neither Donald nor Scrooge wanting to address whatever happened to her, the first season sees the ducklings – primary Dewey and Webby – investigating her disappearance.[56]
  • Several additional members of the Clan McDuck and the Duck family are referred to in the pilot episode, where their portraits and/or names appear as a part of Webby's research: Scrooge's grandfather Dingus, his sisters Hortense (Donald's mother) and Matilda, and Donald's father Quackmore.[3]
  • Johnny and Randy (both voiced by Keith Ferguson) – Twin brothers Johnny and Randy are the hosts of a popular show-within-a-show, "The Ottoman Empire" (an apparent parody of the real-life "Property Brothers"), which sees them creating custom-made ottomans.

  • Storkules (voiced by Chris Diamantopoulos) – Storkules, based on the Roman hero Hercules, is a big friendly pure-hearted Greek stork who is the son of Zeus and an old friend of Donald Duck. He appears in the episode "The Spear of Selene!".[56]

    The actual animated Darkwing Duck series originally aired 1991-1992, as a spinoff of the original DuckTales series, with Launchpad as the sidekick of the titular character. Although DuckTalesDarkwing Duck crossover comic books have been produced, this marks the first occurrence of Darkwing in DuckTales animation.[58]

Major antagonists[edit]

Appearing in both series[edit]

Beagle Boys[edit]

The Beagle Boys are the show's most frequently appearing antagonists; a large family of dogs, constantly trying to rob banks or Scrooge's Money Bin.

Flintheart Glomgold[edit]

Flintheart Glomgold (voiced by Hal Smith in the 1987 series; Brian George in DuckTales: Remastered; Keith Ferguson in the 2017 series) is Scrooge's arch-rival, and the second-richest duck in the world, created by Carl Barks for the 1956 story "The Second-Richest Duck". Early Barks sketches for Scrooge and Glomgold show remarkable similarities, especially in temperament. While the comics originally depicted Glomgold as a native of South Africa, his DuckTales backstory was changed to give him a Scottish descent, just like Scrooge.
His first appearance in the 1987 series was in the second part of the pilot episode.[67] Glomgold often comes up with schemes to earn more money, often at Scrooge's expense, in order to surpass Scrooge and capture the title of World's Richest Duck. In addition to his DuckTales role, Glomgold also makes a cameo appearance in the Darkwing Duck episode "In Like Blunt", along with the Beagle Boys and Magica De Spell.[68]
In the 2017 series, debuting in the hour long pilot episode "Woo-oo!",[3] he heads Glomgold Industries and makes his fortune through personal branding, preferring to develop his products as cheaply as possible. Glomgold's aversion towards Scrooge is both personal and professional and he doesn't shy away from attempting to kill him. He and Ma Beagle also share a mutual hatred of Mrs. Beakley and fondness for Duckworth.

Magica De Spell[edit]

Magica De Spell (voiced by June Foray in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered; Catherine Tate in the 2017 series) is a powerful Italian sorceress, created by Carl Barks in 1961, and constantly after Scrooge's Number One Dime. Magica is convinced that the dime has magic powers that will help her to gain world domination.
In the 1987 series Magica is typically assisted by her brother Poe, who has been trapped in the shape of a raven.[69]
In the 2017 series, she debuts in the episode "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!" as a sinister shadow residing in her niece Lena's amulet,[66] while making her first speaking appearance in "Terror of the Terra-firmians!".[12]

System!", Beaks invents the B.U.D.D.Y. robot to replace drivers.
