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 several video games and comics. Many of them previously appeared in the Uncle Scrooge comic book series and other media pertaining to the Disney Duck universe.

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 and by David Tennant in the 2017 series) is the richest duck in the world and the main protagonist of the 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 was a self-made billionaire when he left Scotland and came to America with his lucky number one dime that made him the richest duck in the world. The only thing Scrooge values more than money is his family. In the original 1987 series, he sports a blue jacket with red cuffs and a red collar.

For the 2017 reboot, Scrooge's background is slightly different. He is well known as a seasoned "adventure-capitalist", who used to conduct adventures with his nephew Donald joining him. However an incident occurred that led to an estrangement between the pair and Scrooge losing the spark for adventure. Ten years after this incident, Scrooge regains this spark when he is reunited with Donald and introduced to his grand-nephews for the first time. 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 (all voiced by Russi Taylor in the 1987 series; in the 2017 series, Huey is voiced by Danny Pudi, Dewey by Ben Schwartz and Louie by Bobby Moynihan) are triplets and the nephews of Donald Duck, and the grand-nephews of Scrooge. All three tend to be playful and mischievous, but adore their uncle and grand-uncle greatly. 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 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. Russi Taylor provided the voice of all three characters during the original series.

For the 2017 reboot, Huey, Dewey and Louie were given distinct appearances, voices and personalities - Huey is the eldest of the triplets and the smartest of the group, wearing a red short-sleeved shirt and cap; Dewey is the most adventurous, and wears a blue long-sleeved T-shirt; and Louie is the youngest of the trio and the most easygoing, who wears a green hooded top. 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, but after renewing his spirit for adventure (and Dewey accidentally wrecking their houseboat), the trio and Donald move in with him and accompany him on his new adventures. For the reboot, Huey is voiced by Danny Pudi, Dewey by Ben Schwartz, and Louie by Bobby Moynihan.

Webby Vanderquack[edit]

Webbigail "Webby" Vanderquack (voiced by Russi Taylor in the 1987 series and Kate Micucci in the 2017 series) is the granddaughter of Mrs. Beakley. In the original 1987 series, she was voiced by Russi Taylor, with her character wearing a pink shirt and a large hairbow, was sometimes timid, and often had difficulty being accepted by Scrooge's grand-nephews at first before they accepted her as an adopted sister of theirs.

In the 2017 reboot, Webby is slightly older and smarter, and is voiced by Kate Micucci, with her character wearing a pink and purple sweater vest, a pink skirt, and a smaller hairbow on her right-side, while she is revealed to be an enthusiastic adventure fan and Clan McDuck historian who idolizes Scrooge and Donald as some of the greatest adventurers of all time. The nephews find her slightly intimidating upon their first meeting, but quickly accept her as a close new friend.

Donald Duck[edit]

Donald Duck (voiced by Tony Anselmo in both versions of the show) is a classic Disney character, whose appearance in the original 1987 series was deliberately downplayed due to his time in the animation spotlight, in order to give more focus to Scrooge and the boys.[1][2] In the original series, he leaves his nephews with Scrooge in order to serve with the Navy,[3] whereupon 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.

For the 2017 reboot, Donald's appearance was 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. 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 his nephews. After a mishap leads him to becoming involved in a new adventure with Scrooge (and losing him his houseboat), Donald agrees to move in his family to Scrooge's mansion while still trying to maintain his independence. In addition to increasing his appearance in the cartoon, the reboot also sees him wearing a black sailor suit that he wears in many of the classic Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics that the show is built upon.

Mrs. Beakley[edit]

Mrs. Bentina Beakley (voiced by Joan Gerber in the 1987 series, Wendee Lee in DuckTales: Remastered and Toks Olagundoye in the 2017 series) is the maid and nanny of the household, and the maternal grandmother of Webby. In the original 1987 series, she is voiced by Joan Gerber, with her character being gentler 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. For the character in DuckTales: Remastered, she was voiced by Wendee Lee.

In the 2017 reboot, she is voiced by Toks Olagundoye, with her character being more down-to-earth than the mansion's other residents, often offering advice to Scrooge and the children, though takes offense at being treated as her employer's secretary. Her physical appearance is similar to her 1987 counterpart, though she has no hair pins, while she wears clothing similar to a nanny, and has an apron around her waist. In the premiere episode, she is protective of Webby, but later agrees to let her be a part of Scrooge's adventures towards the end of the episode.

Launchpad McQuack[edit]

Launchpad McQuack (voiced by Terry McGovern in the 1987 series and Beck Bennett in the 2017 series) is Scrooge's pilot, who 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 is voiced by Terry McGovern, with his character using the motto of "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 is voiced by Beck Bennett, and 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 leather jacket with a fur lined collar, a green undershirt, and white slacks.

Supporting characters[edit]

  • Gladstone Gander (voiced by Rob Paulsen in the 1987 series and by Paul F. Tompkins in the 2017 series) is Donald Duck's cousin. Much to Scrooge's and Donald's annoyance, he is unfailingly lucky.
  • Gyro Gearloose (voiced by Hal Smith in the 1987 series, Chris Edgerly in DuckTales: Remastered and Jim Rash in the 2017 series) is an inventor who often works for Scrooge, designing anything from relocation rays ("The Money Vanishes") to time machines ("Time is Money").[4][5] Despite being duped once in a while by the Beagle Boys, Gyro is generally extremely clever and resourceful. Often his inventions help drive an episode's plot, as they do not always work as designed, usually when anyone besides Gyro attempts to use them. In the 2017 series, Gyro is employed by Scrooge as his head of research and development and works in a secret lab under the Money Bin.
  • Goldie O'Gilt, a.k.a. Glittering Goldie (voiced by Joan Gerber in the 1987 series and by Allison Janney in the 2017 series), is Scrooge's love interest. An original Carl Barks character from the comic book story "Back to the Klondike" who appears in the DuckTales episode of the same name, Goldie's origins are as a music hall singer in Dawson.[6]
  • 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 and Lin-Manuel Miranda in the 2017 series), is Scrooge's accountant (as himself) and personal bodyguard (as Gizmoduck), hired by Scrooge in the show's second season.[7][8] 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.[9][10][11][12][13] In the 2017 series, he is reimagined as an intern working under Gyro Gearloose.
  • Professor Ludwig Von Drake (voiced by Corey Burton in both series) is a mad scientist and Donald's uncle. He is also great-uncle to Huey, Dewey and Louie and probably a cousin or brother-in-law of Scrooge McDuck. He only makes one appearance in the 1987 series but is a recurring character in the 2017 series.

Exclusive to the 1987 series[edit]

  • Duckworth the Butler (voiced by Chuck McCann) is Scrooge's longtime, no-nonsense butler-chauffeur. Despite having "Duck" in his name, Duckworth is actually an anthropomorphic dog. He worked for Scrooge even before the nephews moved in. He is also Scrooge's chauffeur and errand boy on occasion. Duckworth used to be Scrooge's only household servant until Scrooge hired Mrs. Beakley. He usually appears as a supporting character. His only starring roles on the show are in the episode "Duckworth's Revolt" and the episode-segment "Take Me Out of the Ballgame".[14][15] He first appears in the first part of the pilot episode.[3] Duckworth is a jack-of-all-trades in the McDuck mansion, making him an important member of Scrooge's staff.
  • Bubba the Caveduck (voiced by Frank Welker) is a young caveduck that Scrooge adopts in the second season of the show after he stowed away in Gyro's Time Machine, the Millennium Shortcut.[4] After the introduction of GizmoDuck later in the second season, the character was dropped from the series almost entirely.
  • Tootsie the Triceratops is Bubba's pet Triceratops who stowed away with Bubba in Gyro's Time Machine, the Millennium Shortcut.[4]
  • Doofus Drake (voiced by Brian Cummings) is a friend of Huey, Dewey, and Louie, 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.[16]
  • Mrs. Crackshell (voiced by Kathleen Freeman) is Fenton's couch-potato mother. She first appeared in the episode "Super DuckTales (Part 1): Liquid Assets".[7]
  • Gandra Dee (voiced by Miriam Flynn) is Fenton's girlfriend. Her name is a pun on the actress Sandra Dee. She first appeared in the episode "Super DuckTales (Part 1): Liquid Assets".[7]
  • Mrs. Featherby (voiced alternately by Joan Gerber, Tress MacNeille, Susan Blu and June Foray) is Scrooge's secretary. In the original comic books she is named Miss Quackfaster. She appeared in the episodes "Dinosaur Ducks",[17] "Blue Collar Scrooge",[18] and "Yuppy Ducks",[19] as well as in the film DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.

Exclusive to the 2017 series[edit]

  • Lena (voiced by Kimiko Glenn) is a well-traveled teen the group meet on their adventures.
  • Della Duck is the mother of Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and Donald's twin sister. Prior to the events of the series, she used to go adventuring with her brother and uncle before Donald and Scrooge became estranged. She has disappeared by the time of the series, with Donald having raised the boys in her absence. While the character had previously appeared in comics, this is her first appearance in any animated media.
  • Darkwing Duck is a masked superhero from the city of St. Canard. Unlike in his own 1991 series, this will be the first time he will get to meet Scrooge McDuck in animation. Launchpad McQuack also appeared as a sidekick in his series.[20]

Recurring antagonists[edit]

  • Flintheart Glomgold (voiced by Hal Smith in the 1987 series, Brian George in DuckTales: Remastered and Keith Ferguson in the 2017 series) is Scrooge's arch-rival, the main antagonist of the series, and the second-richest duck in the world. His first appearance in the series was in the second part of the pilot episode.[21] 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. 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 origin was changed to Scottish descent just like Scrooge. He made a cameo appearance in the Darkwing Duck episode "In Like Blunt", along with the Beagle Boys and Magica de Spell.[22] In the 2017 series, Glomgold makes his fortune through personal branding, preferring to develop his products as cheaply as possible.
  • The Beagle Boys are a large family of dogs, who are constantly trying to rob banks or Scrooge's Money Bin. They are one of Scrooge's second main antagonist that he faces everyday. Somehow, the Beagle Boys are capable of tricking people for a short time before anyone realizes who they are, even though they never take off their prison numbers. They usually end up working with Flintheart to take down Scrooge or put him out of business. All the Beagle Boys are voiced by Eric Bauza in the 2017 series, save for Ma Beagle, but they have individual actors in the 1987 series:
    • Ma Beagle (voiced by June Foray in the 1987 series and Margo Martindale in the 2017 series) is the mother of the gang. Ma has more experience than her boys, and always takes charge when she is around. She is the leader of the Beagle Boys; Bigtime is her second-in-command.
    • Bigtime Beagle (voiced by Frank Welker) is a short beagle with a lot of cunning. He is second-in-command of the Beagle Boys and leads when his Ma is not around.

    • Bouncer Beagle (voiced by Chuck McCann) is a beagle who usually serves as a set of muscles for the group.

    • Bebop/Bugle Beagle (voiced by Brian Cummings) is a lanky beagle with a passion for music (mostly jazz and disco).
    • Megabyte Beagle (voiced by Don Messick) is a technological genius and the only beagle boy relative whose name does not start with a "B".
  • Magica De Spell (voiced by June Foray) is a powerful sorceress who is constantly after Scrooge's Number One Dime. Magica is one of three top antagonists that Scrooge, his family and his friends face every time. Scrooge's coveted Number One Dime is thought to have magic powers, that Magica can use to rule the world with it.
    • Poe De Spell (voiced by Frank Welker) is Magica's brother and familiar. Poe was somehow transformed into a non-anthropomorphic raven, and cannot be turned back by conventional magic.

  • Black Pete (voiced by Will Ryan) is a classic Disney villain who made a few infrequent appearances in the first season. There are multiple Petes, as they all have different experiences with Scrooge, and because two of them were from different time periods.
  • Merlock (voiced by Christopher Lloyd) is a powerful and evil sorcerer who uses a green talisman to transform into various (non-anthropomorphic) animals. He was the main villain in the film DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, in which he sought to regain the lamp. In the film, it is revealed that he once possessed the magic lamp of Gene the genie, and by combining it with the talisman he gained unlimited wishes, including his own immortality, the sinking of Atlantis, the destruction of Pompeii and the invention of anchovy pizza. Near the end of the film, Merlock fell to his apparent death from thousands of feet in the air.
  • Dijon (voiced by Richard Libertini) is an inept thief with kleptomania who works for Merlock in the film DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. He also appeared in a few episodes of the series, working for either himself or Glomgold.[24][25][26]

  • El Capitán (voiced by Jim Cummings) is a former captain who is insanely greedy for gold. He appeared in parts 1, 2, and 5 of the five-part pilot episode.[3][21][28] Hints are given that he is in fact a 400-year-old Spanish galleon captain who is kept alive solely by gold fever and his "sheer willpower".[28] Furthermore, he is even more of a greedy miser than Scrooge McDuck or even Flintheart Glomgold can ever be—he sinks his own raised treasure ship by accident to retrieve a single golden coin.[21]
  • Armstrong (voiced by Peter Cullen) is a robot designed by Gyro to perform household chores and remove heavy objects in the episode "Armstrong".[29] However, Armstrong soon succeeded in betraying his masters and took control of all satellites in Earth's orbit.[29] However he would be destroyed when Launchpad dumped water on him with his plane.[29]
  • Lessdred (voiced by Peter Cullen) is King Artie's traitorous nephew who appears in the episode "Sir Gyro de Gearloose".[30]
  • Fritter O'Way (voiced by Aron Kincaid) is a conniving fox who forces Scrooge to hand over his fortune due to an old unpaid debt in the episode "Down & Out in Duckburg".[31] Fritter then proceeded to replace all the furniture in the McDuck mansion with balloon type furniture.[31] Scrooge was scheduled to appear on a parody of the show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous at the time.[31]

(the "Foreign Organization for World Larceny") who plots to destroy all the money in the world in the episode "Double-O-Duck".[35] He was apparently killed when he fell into a vat of dissolving fluid.[35] The F.O.W.L. organization later appeared in Darkwing Duck, in which the "F" in the acronym stands for "Fiendish" instead of "Foreign".
  • Bruno von Beak (voiced by Terry McGovern) is an international spy working for F.O.W.L. who looks incredibly similar to Launchpad, and who appears in the episode "Double-O-Duck".[35]
  • Cinnamon Teal (voiced by Haunani Minn) is a superspy who uses her alluring beauty and hypnotic gaze to con Donald into stealing the motherboard for the navy's new secret submarine in the episode "Spies in Their Eyes". She defected and switched sides to the U.S. Navy and also worked with Donald, Scrooge and his nephews to take down the person who she is working for. She is the anti-hero in this episode.[36] Cinnamon Teal has resurfaced, as she appears in the 2011 DuckTales and Darkwing Duck comics from BOOM! Studios.
  • Victor Loser (voiced by Bernie Kopell) is a pig spy who works with Teal (and later doublecrosses her) in the episode "Spies in Their Eyes".[36] While playing the character's voice, Bernie Kopell parodied his own character of KAOS agent Siegfried from the popular 1960s spy show Get Smart.
  • Robotica (voiced by Susan Blu) is a robotic maid built by Gyro in the episode "Metal Attraction".[37] The inventor gave her emotions so that she could be more efficient at her job.[37] However, she falls madly in love with Gizmoduck (not knowing he is Fenton Crackshell), much to his dismay.[37] When she suspects that Gizmoduck is in love with Gandra Dee, she goes insane with jealousy and tries to kill Gandra and to destroy Scrooge's Money Bin.[37] When Gizmoduck puts himself in the way of a missile fired by Robotica at Gandra, Robotica cannot let Gizmoduck die, so she pushes him out of the way; however, Robotica is hit and destroyed by the missile she fired, saving Gandra's life.[37] At the end of the episode, Gyro rebuilds Robotica and reprograms her with a new set of emotions so she would not be dangerous. She is the anti-hero of the episode.[37]

Exclusive to the 2017 series[edit]
