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, a distinguished citizen of Duckburg, Calisota, and the main protagonist of the original 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. He sports a blue jacket with red cuffs and a red collar. Pat Fraley provided the voice for the younger Scrooge in flashback episode "Once Upon a Dime".
In the 2017 series, Scrooge's Scottish background, the Money Bin, and the Number One Dime remains the same, but he is well known as a seasoned "adventure-capitalist" and CEO of McDuck Enterprises here. Born in Scotland in the mid 19th Century and getting rich during the Klondike Gold Rush in the 1890s, his decreased aging has been explained by him spending time "stuck in a timeless demon dimension". In his younger days he used to conduct adventures with his nephew Donald and niece Della joining him. However, Della's disappearance led to Donald cutting off his relationship with Scrooge, and Scrooge losing the spark for adventure. Ten years later, as seen in the pilot episode, Scrooge regains his energy when he is reunited with Donald and introduced to his great-nephews for the first time. The reboot sees him wearing a red jacket with visible pockets and black cuffs, spats, and collar, as per his comic book appearance.
Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck
Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck (all 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 great-nephews of Scrooge. They were originally created for the comics by Ted Osborne and Al Taliaferro in 1937.
In the 1987 series, the triplets are sent to Scrooge to stay with him, while Donald 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. Avery Schreiber provided the voice for the adult Huey, Dewey and Louie in a possible future scenario in the episode "Duck to the Future".
In the 2017 series, Huey (short for Hubert), Dewey (Dewford), and Louie (Llewelyn) are depicted as slightly older, 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 both the most adventurous and the most sensitive of the siblings, as well as 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, the most money-obsessed and laid-back brother, jokingly described as the "evil triplet". 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 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. Della had initially wanted to name her sons "Jet, Turbo, and Rebel", respectively; but Donald came up with their current names in her absence.
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 1987 series, she is characterized as younger than the nephews, despite being the same size. She is a tenderhearted girl who is always seen carrying her "Quacky-Patch" doll. Her love for animals is a recurring theme, be it penguins, koalas, dinosaurs, or even the Yeti. Webby is typically wearing a pink shirt and a large hairbow, she is usually rather timid, and often has difficulties being accepted by the boys, although she is also a capable Junior Woodchuck scout.
In the 2017 series, Webby is around the boys' age, being an intellectual nerd and somewhat of an athletic tomboy, 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 Scrooge McDuck as one of the greatest adventurers of all time. 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 and sledding), Webby's curiosity drives her towards new experiences as the nephews' arrival in McDuck Manor finally causes Beakley to allow her more freedom. While the boys find her slightly intimidating upon their first meeting, they soon accept her as a close friend and surrogate sister, as her optimism and energy often help encourage them.
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 1987 series, he uses the motto "If it has wings, I can crash it". He is introduced in the third part of the pilot episode, but has been Scrooge's pilot since his early youth. He is of Irish descent and his ancestor Rhubarb McQuack played an important role in the American Civil War, and prior to the series Launchpad used to perform with his parents and sister as the stunt pilot team "The Flying McQuacks". Aside from being a pilot, he is also a Junior Woodchuck scout leader. 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.
In the 2017 series, Launchpad initially works for Scrooge as his limo driver, before being placed in charge of piloting various craft including the airplane "The Sunchaser", which becomes his signature vehicle. 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. The goofy aspects of the character have been enhanced, often giving Launchpad the role of a comic relief. He is Jewish, and has proven to be popular with the ladies – a running gag includes him hooking up with exes while the others go on adventures. Like his 1987 incarnation, Launchpad is a Junior Woodchuck scout leader.
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 1987 series, she is shown as a gentle woman of upper middle age, sweet on her granddaughter, and typically wearing a purple dress and large white apron over her front and having two hair pins to maintain her hairstyle. She is hired by Scrooge as a nanny for the nephews in the third part of the pilot episode, not asking for any payment other than a shelter for herself and Webby. She has been in the line of work for a long time, and used to take care of the young Prince Greydrake, and she has proven to be a capable opera singer.
In the 2017 series, her character is more down-to-earth than the other residents of McDuck Manor, often offering advice to Scrooge and the ducklings. She is much more resourceful than the 1987 version, and has worked for Scrooge for years prior to the series' start. Her backstory includes a career as an agent for the secret espionage organization S.H.U.S.H., where her codename was "Agent 22" and through which she first met Scrooge. Though her physical appearance is similar to her 1987 counterpart, with clothing similar to a nanny, and an apron around her waist, she takes offense at being treated as her employer's secretary, and has proven to possess impressive strength. Her nationality has also been 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. Donald refers to her as "Mrs. B" and the two don't get along at first; though when the kids are kidnapped by the Beagle Boys, they join forces and eventually gain respect for each other. Initially, Beakley also dislikes Webby's friend Lena, regarding her as a bad influence, but after Lena saves her life she becomes more accepting of her. Beakley's relationship with Scrooge's butler Duckworth is frosty, due to him criticizing her housework.
In the 1987 series, his appearance was deliberately downplayed, in order to give more focus to Scrooge and the boys. After leaving his nephews with Scrooge in order to serve with the US Navy, he makes occasional appearances while crossing paths with the rest of the Ducks during their adventures. In the first-season finale, he returns to Duckburg to serve as best man at Scrooge's wedding to Millionara Vanderbucks. He is not seen in the later seasons.
In the 2017 series, Donald's role is significantly increased to involve him in the adventures of Scrooge and his nephews, which included changing a part of his background with his uncle. In the reboot, he, Della, and Scrooge used to adventure together, until Della's disappearance caused Donald to cut off contact with Scrooge; not speaking to him for the next decade and raising Della's children in her absence. However, ten years later, as seen in the pilot episode, when Donald discovers his nephews' plan to be alone to cause some mischief with their houseboat, he 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 traits are his bad luck and short temper, while he's also struggling to be a good parent figure to his nephews. Don Cheadle briefly provides an alternate voice for Donald in the season one finale "The Shadow War!", while original series star Russi Taylor voices the young Donald in "Last Christmas!". This was Taylor's final non-posthumous acting credit before her death in 2019.
The Beagle Boys
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. They were originally created by Carl Barks in 1951, and given individual names, looks, and personalities for their DuckTales incarnation, which is introduced in the five-part pilot.
The 1987 series version of the Beagle Boys include seven main Beagle Boys, with four of them appearing throughout the series:
- Bigtime Beagle (voiced by Frank Welker in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered; Eric Bauza in the 2017 series) – Bigtime Beagle 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.
In the 2017 series, he debuts in the episode "Daytrip of Doom!" and is the leader of "the Original Classics". He is always trying to win Ma Beagle's approval by pulling off grand schemes that go horribly awry.
- Burger Beagle (voiced by Chuck McCann in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered; Eric Bauza in the 2017 series) – Burger Beagle is a dimwitted beagle who is constantly hungry.
In the 2017 series, he debuts in the episode "Daytrip of Doom!" and is a member of the Original Classics. While this version simply grunts, he is slimmer and more intelligent than his 80s' counterpart.
- Bouncer Beagle (voiced by Chuck McCann in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered; Eric Bauza in the 2017 series) – Bouncer Beagle is a hefty beagle who usually serves as a set of muscles for the group.
In the 2017 series, he debuts in the episode "Daytrip of Doom!", and is a member of the Original Classics. This version is now the same size as the 1987 series' Bankjob.
- Baggy Beagle (voiced by Frank Welker in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered) – Baggy Beagle is a dopey beagle who dresses in baggy clothes and is most likely the least intelligent of the group.
Unlike Bigtime, Burger and Bouncer, Baggy has yet to appear in the 2017 series.
- Alongside Bigtime, Burger, Bouncer, and Baggy, the first season of the 1987 series also includes three additional main Beagle Boys, who each appear in handful of episodes before making their final, non-speaking, appearance in "Super DuckTales":
- Babyface Beagle (voiced by Terry McGovern), a small and clean-shaven beagle and dresses much like a little kid with a distinctive propeller beanie
- Bankjob Beagle (voiced by Peter Cullen), a burly beagle who runs the show when Bigtime and Ma are not around
- Bugle Beagle (voiced by Brian Cummings and alternately named Bebop), a lanky beagle with a passion for music and poetry.
- In the 2017 series, Babyface, Bankjob and Bugle belong to a previous generation of Beagles, led by Grandpappy Beagle, as seen in the episode "Last Christmas!", in which the trio make a minor, non-speaking, appearance.
Both in the 1987 series and in the 2017 series the Beagle Boys are led by their matriarch:
- Ma Beagle (voiced by June Foray in the 1987 series; Margo Martindale in the 2017 series) – Ma Beagle is the mother of the gang, created for DuckTales and modeled after real-life gang leader Ma Barker. Ma has more experience than her boys, and always takes charge when she is around. She is introduced in "Robot Robbers", and play major roles in "Super DuckTales", where she celebrates her birthday, and "The Bride Wore Stripes", where she poses as Scrooge's wife in order to gain access to his money.
In the 2017 series, Ma Beagle manages a junkyard, as seen in her debut episode "Daytrip of Doom!". She and Glomgold share a mutual hatred of Mrs. Beakley and fondness for Duckworth.
The 1987 series also include several minor Beagle Boys, who have not appeared in the 2017 series as of yet:
- Bomber Beagle (voiced by Robert Ridgely) – Bomber Beagle is a relatively intelligent beagle and a skilled pilot, appearing in the episode "Top Duck".
- The Beagle Brats (voiced by Brian Cummings, Chuck McCann, and Terry McGovern) – The Beagle Brats are a younger version of the Beagle Boys and appear in the episode-segment "Take Me Out of the Ballgame", were they, coached by Ma Beagle, face the Junior Woodchucks in a game of baseball. The characters were originally created in 1965 by Vic Lockman and Tony Strobl for the comic books, as nephews of the main Beagle Boys.
- The Blueblood Beagles; Bonaparte (voiced by Frank Welker), Biceps (voiced by Chuck McCann), and Bearnaise (voiced by Chuck McCann) – The Blueblood Beagles, physically resembling Bigtime, Bouncer, and Burger, respectively, appear in "The Status Seekers" where they reside in the posh minimum-security Club Fed Penitentiary prison, and assist Charles Upstart III in finding the Mask of Kuthu-lulu.
- The Early 20th Century Beagles; Butch (voiced by Chuck McCann), Wild Bill (voiced by William Callaway) and an unnamed one (voiced by Michael Rye) – This previous generation of Beagles were the first members of the family to meet the young Scrooge shortly after he arrived in the United States, as seen in the flashback episode "Once Upon a Dime".
- Megabyte Beagle (voiced by Frank Welker) – Megabyte Beagle is a technological genius and the only beagle whose name does not start with a "B". He appears in two of the five "Super DuckTales" episodes.
- The Beagle Babes; Boom-Boom (voiced by Victoria Carroll), Bouffant (voiced by Jo Anne Worley) and Babydoll (voiced by Susan Blu) – The Beagle Babes are the female cousins of the Beagle Boys. They appear in the episode "The Good Muddahs", kidnapping Webby.
- The Canadian Beagles; Backwoods (voiced by Danny Mann), Bacon (vocal effects by Frank Welker) and Binky (non-speaking) – The Canadian Beagles are a trio of rural Beagle Boys appearing in the episode "Ducky Mountain High", assisting Glomgold. Although Bacon is a (non-anthropomorphic) pig, Backwoods – who interprets Bacon's oinks and grunts – insists that Bacon and Binky are twins, while admitting that Bacon "had a bad case of the swine flu as a child".
- The Glam Yankees – A trio of Beagle Boys dressed as a combination of Colonial Yankees and glam rock musicians.
- The Déjà Vus – A French trio of Beagle Boys who live up to their name.
- The 6th Avenue Meanies – A trio of thuggish Beagle Boys, led by Bad Attitude Beagle.
- The 6th Avenue Friendlies – A trio of well-mannered Beagle Boys, led by Benevolent Beagle.
- The Longboard Taquitos – A trio of daredevil-themed Beagle Boys who all speak with surfer accents.
- The Tumblebums – A trio of evil clown-themed Beagle Boys consisting of a muscular clown, a stilt-walker, and an acrobat. There is a rumor that they were adopted.
- The Ugly Failures – A trio of Beagle Boys regarded by Ma as disappointments due to their lack of success as criminals. They include Botched Job Beagle, a large chubby member who is shorter than Bouncer; Bungle Beagle; a short member with curly hair; and Bottle Beagle, a scraggy member with crooked braced teeth and hair over his eyes who got his name for constantly getting his fingers stuck in bottles.
Later on in the 2017 series, additional members of the Beagle family (always voiced by Eric Bauza) keep appearing:
- Black Arts Beagle – A solo Beagle Boy who dabbles in magic. He first appears in the episode "McMystery at McDuck McManor!" where he shows up at Scrooge's birthday party under his stage name "Nik Nokturne", and unintentionally brings back the ghost of Duckworth. Unlike the other members of Ma Beagle's family, Black Arts has gray fur.
- Grandpappy Beagle – Ma Beagle's grandfather, who stole the deed to Duckburg from its citizens only to lose it to Scrooge, thus starting the family feud. He makes his on-screen debut in the flashback episode "Last Christmas!", where he leads an attack on Scrooge's first annual McDuck Enterprises Christmas party alongside Babyface, Bankjob, and Bugle.
Beagle Boys solely appearing in the IDW comic book adaption of the 2017 TV series include:
- Broadway Beagle – A Beagle Boy specializing in set and prop design who appeared in "Welcome to Beagle Island!".
- Backfield Beagle – A football-playing Beagle Boy who also appeared in "Welcome to Beagle Island!".
- Bomber and Butcher Beagle – A pair of hockey-playing Beagle Boys who appeared in "The Mighty Ducks of Duckburg!".
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, due to the internationally criticized South African apartheid politics of the 1980s, Glomgold was changed into a Scottish descendant for DuckTales.
In the 1987 series, he first appears in the second part of the pilot episode, and typically comes up with schemes to earn money at Scrooge's expense, in order to surpass Scrooge and capture the title of the 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.
In the 2017 series, debuting in the hour long pilot episode "Woo-oo!", 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, as he doesn't shy away from attempting to kill him and even shows up at his (ultimately fake) funeral to dance on top of his coffin. He and Ma Beagle also share a mutual hatred of Mrs. Beakley and fondness for Duckworth. In "The Ballad of Duke Baloney!", after recovering from amnesia caused by the events of the first-season finale, it is revealed that Glomgold's birth name was "Duke Baloney", and that he was born and raised in South Africa. After meeting Scrooge, who refused to pay him properly for polishing his shoes, he adopted the name "Flintheart Glomgold" and swore to beat Scrooge in every way possible; including becoming the world's richest duck and proving himself as "the most Scottish" between them. Notably, the name "Duke Baloney" is derived from "the Duke of Baloni", a one-time-only character created by Carl Barks three years prior to Glomgold, and the first character described by Barks as "the second-richest duck in the world".
Magica De Spell
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, making her first appearance in "Send in the Clones", is living on a distant island, inside a volcano in the shape of her head. Her accent is Eastern European, and she is often assisted by her brother Poe, who has been trapped in the shape of a raven. While mostly appearing in the show's first season, she makes one final appearance in "The Unbreakable Bin".
In the 2017 series, Magica is "a vile sorceress with a mysterious, ancient grudge against Clan McDuck". First appearing in the episode "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!", while making her first speaking appearance in "Terror of the Terra-firmians!", Magica, trapped in a shadow form, pressures her "niece" Lena into infiltrating the Duck family so she can steal the Number One Dime and regain her corporeal form. When Lena eventually attempts to come clean, Magica grows strong enough from an approaching eclipse to possess Lena's body and prevent her from doing so. Magica's past is revealed in the season one finale: Fifteen years prior, Scrooge sealed Magica's physical form in a pocket dimension within his Number One Dime. At the last second, she used a spell to create Lena from a part of her shadow, thus remaining in contact with the outside world. In present time, empowered by the eclipse, Magica is able to regain her physical form, and traps Scrooge in his Number One Dime while exacting her revenge by attacking Duckburg. Eventually, Magica is defeated. Rendered powerless, forced to escape. In this series, she speaks with an English accent, wears a black halter-necked evening gown with a matching cape, finger-less evening gloves, and no shoes.
Appearing in both series
Duckworth the Butler
Duckworth the Butler (voiced by Chuck McCann in the 1987 series, DuckTales the Movie, and DuckTales: Remastered; David Kaye in the 2017 series) is Scrooge's longtime, no-nonsense butler, the 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, and appears as a supporting character throughout the series, serving both as butler and chauffeur. He plays a bigger part in the episode "Duckworth's Revolt", where he and the nephews get abducted by aliens, and in the episode-segment "Take Me Out of the Ballgame", where he acts as the temporary coach of the Junior Woodchuck baseball team.
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!", he rescues Scrooge from Black Arts, Glomgold, Mark Beaks, and Ma Beagle by ejecting them in the form of a shadowy demon, later nicknamed "Demonworth". His ghost has since returned to his duties as Scrooge's faithful butler. Duckworth later left with Mrs. Beakley and Webby on their trip.
Gyro Gearloose (voiced by Hal Smith in the 1987 series; Chris Edgerly in DuckTales: Remastered; Jim Rash in the 2017 series) 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 time machines to relocation rays. He makes his first appearance in the third part of the pilot episode. 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!", Gyro is still good-natured, but more arrogant, sassy, rather impatient, and lacking basic social skills; to the point where he needs prompt cards for basic conversation (he has even been described as a "mad scientist" by the producers of the show). He heads McDuck Enterprises' Research and Development department, working in a secret lab under the Money Bin.
The Lil Bulb is an invention of Gyro; a small (non-speaking) humanoid robot with a light bulb 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, only appearing as a minor comic relief in a handful of episodes.
In the 2017 series, Lil Bulb is introduced in the episode "The Great Dime Chase!" as Gyro's new invention who malfunctions and turns himself into a giant money-collecting robot. 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 unauthorized crowd sourcing by Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera.
Besides Lil Bulb, notable inventions of Gyro's to appear in both the 1987 and the 2017 series include the Gizmoduck suit, as well as the Time Tub – a bathtub remade into a time machine – and the Time Teaser – which allows the user to freeze time. Additionally – Oxy-Chew, chewing gum that provides the user with oxygen, appears in DuckTales: Remastered as well as the 2017 series.
In the 1987 series he is the nephews' friend and neighbor, 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. 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 appears throughout the first season, with a final, non-speaking, cameo appearance in "Super DuckTales".
In the 2017 series, Doofus debuts in the episode "Day of the Only Child!", and has been re-imagined 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 possessive of him, even trying to have him locked up inside his mansion. He reappears in the second season, during the nephews' hunt to reclaim D'jinn's lamp in the episode "Treasure of the Found Lamp!".
Mrs. Featherby / Mrs. Quackfaster
Mrs. Featherby (1987) or Mrs. Emily Quackfaster (2017) (voiced alternately by Tress MacNeille, Joan Gerber, Susan Blu, and June Foray in the 1987 series; June Foray in DuckTales the Movie; Susanne Blakeslee in the 2017 series), named Miss Quackfaster in the original comic books, was created by Barks in 1961, as Scrooge's faithful secretary.
In the 1987 series she is Scrooge's mild-mannered and capable, albeit somewhat gossipy, secretary. She is seen in "Dinosaur Ducks" (voiced by MacNeille), "Hero for Hire" (voiced by Gerber), "Super DuckTales" (non-speaking), "Blue Collar Scrooge" (voiced by Blu), and finally (voiced by Foray) in "Beaglemania" and "Yuppy Ducks". Additionally, she also appears in DuckTales the Movie (voiced by Foray).
In the 2017 series, debuting in the episode "The Great Dime Chase!", 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 ducklings if they refuse to heed her bizarre set of rules. In season two, she is seen defending the archive from harpies, attending Scrooge's (ultimately fake) funeral, and working part-time at Duckburg's public library.
Goldie O'Gilt, a.k.a. Glittering Goldie (voiced by Joan Gerber in the 1987 series; Allison Janney in the 2017 series) is Scrooge's longtime love interest, and an original Carl Barks character from the 1952 comic book story "Back to the Klondike". The producer's of the 2017 series has called her the Catwoman to Scrooge's Batman.
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. She reappears in the episodes "Scroogerello", as a figment of Scrooge's dream, "'Till Nephews Do Us Part", interrupting Scrooge's wedding to Millionara Vanderbucks, and "Ducky Mountain High", where Scrooge and Glomgold fight for Goldie's property only to see Goldie walking out on top.
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, out-cunning both Glomgold and Scrooge. Alongside Scrooge, she took part in the Klondike Gold Rush in the late 19th Century, and she explains her age by claiming to have found "a fountain of youth in Ronguay". While she admittingly "always loved gold more than she loved Scrooge", the pair's mutual affection and respect go deep.

Rockerduck.
Ludwig Von Drake
Ludwig Von Drake (voiced by Corey Burton in the 1987 series and the 2017 series) 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".
In the 2017 series, he is an old colleague of Scrooge's, and debuts in "From the Confidential Case Files of Agent 22!", appearing in a flashback segment set in 1968. By that time, he was the resourceful director of international spy organization S.H.U.S.H., which are usually fighting F.O.W.L. ("Fiendish Organization for World Larceny"). In the present day, Ludwig's children Corvus, Anya and Klara have taken over at least some of his duties, including the management of his Arctic "doomsday vault" (inspired by the Svalbard Global Seed Vault), established in case of worldwide disaster.
F.O.W.L. first appeared in an episode of the 1987 series (where the "F" stands for "Foreign") and later recurred on Darkwing Duck, which also introduced S.H.U.S.H. (although without Von Drake).
Gladstone Gander (voiced by Rob Paulsen in the 1987 series; Paul F. Tompkins in the 2017 series) is Donald's cousin, debuting in Carl Barks' "Wintertime Wager" from 1948. Much to his relatives' annoyance, he is unfailingly lucky.
In the 1987 series he foremost appears in the episodes "Dime Enough for Luck", where Magica tries to use his good luck to steal Scrooge's Number One Dime, but he is also seen bidding at an auction in "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. McDuck" and he makes non-speaking cameo appearances in "Sweet Duck of Youth" and "'Till Nephews Do Us Part".
In the 2017 series he is introduced in the episode "The House of the Lucky Gander!", living in the Macau-like city Macaw where he is a prisoner of Toad Liu Hai until Scrooge is able to free him. In the first-season finale, he is shown to have returned to Duckburg where his shadow is stolen by Magica De Spell. He later appears in the second-season episode "Treasure of the Found Lamp!", during the nephews' hunt to reclaim D'jinn's lamp.
Downy and Fergus McDuck
Downy and Fergus McDuck (voiced by June Foray and Don Messick in the 1987 series; Ashley Jensen and Graham McTavish in the 2017 series) are Scrooge's parents. While the mother and father of Scrooge occasionally have appeared or been referred to in the comics, the names Downy and Fergus were created for their appearances in Don Rosa's 12-part comic book series "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck".
In the 1987 series, Scrooge's parents are simply referred to as "MacMama" and "MacPapa", and they appear in flashbacks in the episode "Once Upon a Dime", where they are shown living as farmers in a small cottage. They are also alluded to in the episode "The Curse of Castle McDuck", which also mentioned the family castle being build by Scrooge's great-great-grandfather Silas McDuck, a character who makes his only appearance here.
Initially in the 2017 series, Downy and Fergus only appear in portraits at McDuck Manor, after which they make their proper debut in "The Secret(s) of Castle McDuck!". Due to Scrooge using magical druid stones to rebuild their ancestral castle so his parents could move back in there, Downy and Fergus have become immortal, and the castle is only accessible to the rest of the world once every five years. Scrooge and Fergus' relationship is shown to be a conflicted one, while Downy happily greets her visiting family.
Along with Scrooge's parents, the 2017 series pilot also refers to several additional members of Clan McDuck and the Duck family, including Scrooge's grandfather Dingus and sister Matilda, and Donald's parents Hortense (sister of Scrooge and Matilda) and Quackmore. Several additional ancestors are referred to in "The Secret(s) of Castle McDuck!", and further evolved upon in the tie-in book "DuckTales: Solving Mysteries and Rewriting History!”. Their physical appearances and much of their character traits are taken from "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck" and related work.
Bubba the Caveduck
Bubba the Caveduck (voiced by Frank Welker in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered) is a young caveduck that Scrooge adopts. The character was originally pitched by Tad Stones as "Bubbaduck".
In the 1987 series, he first appears in the five-part episode "Time Is Money", which opens season two. He and his pet Triceratops Tootsie arrive in the present after hiding in Gyro's time-machine, the Millennium Shortcut, and Bubba quickly befriends Huey, Dewey and Louie. To accommodate Bubba, Scrooge builds a replica of his original habitat on the McDuck Manor property, and eventually he starts attending the same school class as Webby and the triplets.
In the 2017 series, Bubba and Tootsie have been confirmed to appear in seasons two and three.
Fenton Crackshell (-Cabrera)
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) is an everyday office clerk who accidentally becomes the 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 Caveduck) and "Spaceduck" (who never made it to the show), and made his debut in the second season.
In the 1987 series, Fenton doubles as Scrooge's accountant (as himself) and his personal bodyguard (as Gizmoduck), hired by Scrooge in the five-part story "Super DuckTales". 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 (a dual identity only known to Scrooge and Fenton's mother), as his high-powered suit gives him courage to make daring decisions and act as a strong leader and a hero. Aside from Fenton, other characters to temporarily use the Gizmo-suit include Launchpad, M'Ma Crackshell, and the nephews and Webby. Gizmoduck (Fenton) also makes a few guest appearances in Darkwing Duck.
In the 2017 series, he is re-imagined as a Latin American intern working under Gyro, and debuts in the episode "Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System!". While the character remains similar to the 1980s version, this version is more of an optimist. After receiving the Gizmo-suit, Fenton is hired by Scrooge to guard Duckburg as the armored superhero.
M'Ma Crackshell / M'Ma Cabrera
In the 1987 series, she is a couch potato who spends most of her time in her trailer home watching soap operas in her bathrobe, and debuts alongside her son in the five-part story "Super DuckTales".

Additionally, she makes minor appearances in "The Big Flub" and "A Case of Mistaken Secret Identity".
In the 2017 series, she is reimagined as a no-nonsense Latina police officer. While living an active life, and is deeply concerned with her son's well-being, she is also a devoted telenovela fan, as seen in her debut in "Who Is Gizmoduck?!". She makes non-speaking appearances in "The Shadow War!" and "Storkules in Duckburg!", where she is seen preventing crimes. She returns in a minor speaking role in "The Dangerous Chemistry of Gandra Dee!", giving her son dating advice.
In the 1987 series, following her introduction as a minor character in the five-part episode "Super DuckTales", which end with her and Fenton's first date, Gandra reappears in "Metal Attraction", where she and Fenton have become a couple and the robot Robotica falls in love with GizmoDuck and tries to kill her, "The Big Flub", where she stars in a series of commercials directed by Fenton in order for him to get promoted, and "The Duck Who Knew Too Much", where she and Fenton go on vacation, but get involved with international spies.
In the 2017 series, Gandra Dee is a rebel scientist, debuting in "The Dangerous Chemistry of Gandra Dee!". She meets Fenton at a tech store and they go on a date, but she is soon revealed to be spy for Mark Beaks. Although initially assisting Beaks, she turns on him when he endangers Huey and Webby and helps Gizmoduck to stop him before making a stealthy exit.
Dijon / Faris D'jinn

In the 1987 continuity, Dijon debuted in the movie, as an inept thief with kleptomania, working for the wizard Merlock. Thereafter, he returns for three of the final five episodes produced for the series. In the episode "Attack of the Metal Mites" he is seen working for Glomgold, and in the two-part series finale "The Golden Goose", he is reunited with his estranged brother, Poupon.
In the 2017 series, he has been reimagined as a fierce adventurer named Faris D'jinn – an ally of Scrooge, noted for being the descendant of an actual genie. He debuts in "Treasure of the Found Lamp!".
Gene the Genie
Gene the Genie (voiced by Rip Taylor in DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp) is the genie of the movie's title lamp. As such targeted by Merlock, but eventually ends up becoming a real boy and a friend of the kids of McDuck Manor.

- Poe (voiced by Frank Welker) – Poe is Magica's brother and familiar, always seen in the shape of a (non-anthropomorphic) raven, and assisting her in three episodes. In Poe's debut episode, "Send in the Clones", it is stated that he was somehow permanently transformed into a raven and cannot be turned back by conventional magic. His name is a reference to author Edgar Allan Poe, and Poe often ends his stanzas with the word "nevermore", quoting the poem "The Raven".
Exclusive to the 2017 series
- Della Duck (voiced by Paget Brewster) – 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, and just like how Donald mostly wears a sailor shirt, Della typically sports a pilot's outfit. Her sons grew up without knowing their mother, and the first season sees the ducklings – initially Dewey and Webby – investigating her disappearance. Thus, she only appears in photos and paintings throughout most of season one, making her first major appearance within the franchise in a series of flashback stories in issue #2 and #3 of the IDW published DuckTales comic book. The triplets eventually find out the truth: days before they hatched, Della – a passionate pilot and aspiring astronaut – took off with a spaceship built by Scrooge: The Spear of Selene. When she got caught in a cosmic storm, Scrooge tried to guide her through it, but contact with The Spear was lost. Donald, blaming Scrooge for Della's disappearance, cut off all contact with his uncle and raised the triplets by himself, while Scrooge spent years trying to find his niece until his board of directors cut the expenses. In the season one finale, she is shown to be alive and well, albeit stranded on the Moon and unable to contact Earth. Her fate following the crash is shown in season two – having lost her left leg, she built a prosthetic replacement, and she managed to survive using Gyro's Oxy-Chew gum, which provided her with oxygen, water, and nutrients. Ten years after the crash she encountered the hidden Lunar civilization of the Moonlanders. She is eventually able to return to Earth, unaware that the Moonlanders have declared war on Earth, and that her spaceship has left Earth with Donald on board, and is reunited with her family (sans Donald). As seen in "Last Christmas", Della and Donald lived with Scrooge at McDuck Manor during their childhood, and when annoyed with his sister, Donald used to insult Della by calling her "Dumbella", a reference to her name in the 1938 animated short Donald's Nephews.
While the character had previously appeared in Disney comics, this is her first on-screen appearance in any animated media.
- Lena De Spell (voiced by Kimiko Glenn) – Lena first appears in the episode "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!" as a street smart and seemingly carefree teenage girl who befriends Webby. In secret, however, she is attempting to win the Ducks' trust in order to gain access to Scrooge's Number One Dime on behalf of her "aunt", Magica de Spell. However, as the first season progresses, Lena becomes increasingly torn between her aunt's villainous schemes and her growing friendship with Webby. When Lena finally decides to side with the Ducks, Magica grows strong enough to possess her body, moments before she has the chance to tell Scrooge the truth. In the season one finale, the ducklings discovers that she was actually a shadow created by Magica to get revenge on Scrooge and free herself. During the final battle, Lena's able to strike back at Magica, but ends up sacrificing herself to protect Webby. However – Lena continued to watch over Webby from the "shadow realm", and with the help of newfound friend Violet, Webby was eventually able to bring Lena back to the dimension of the living.
The character was created for the 2017 series. Initially, in order to conceal Lena's connection to Magica, she was originally referred to as "Lena LeStrange", an unofficial placeholder name.
- Mark Beaks (voiced by Josh Brener) – Mark Beaks is an anthropomorphic African grey parrot and the young tech industry billionaire and CEO of Waddle. He cares more about his own image and popularity than his fortune, where he has many followers on social media as well as back-up phones if any one of them gets destroyed. Debuting in "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!", he takes on Huey and Dewey as interns while Scrooge and Glomgold get annoyed with their new competitor, and in "Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System!", Beaks' life is saved by Gizmoduck, when his autonomous car system B.U.D.D.Y. (Beaks Unmanned Driver Drone Yay) malfunctions. In "Who Is Gizmoduck?!," he hires Gizmoduck to work for Waddle. Growing jealous of the new star's rising popularity however, he decides to wear the Gizmosuit himself, but ends up causing mayhem before he's stopped by Fenton. In season two, he makes a (non-speaking) appearance as he's attacked by harpies before making a major appearance in "The Dangerous Chemistry of Gandra Dee!", using Gandra Dee as a spy to get close to Gizmoduck and turn himself into a Hulk-like monster. Dubbing himself "Mega-Beaks", he severely damages Gyro's lab and the Gizmo-suit, kidnaps Huey and Webby and attacks his own company before being confronted by Fenton and Gandra, who manages to defeat him and turn him back to normal.
The character is a DuckTales creation, and has been described by the producers as "Gizmoduck's Lex Luthor".

While initially only appearing as the Darkwing Duck character, Starling himself is introduced in the season two episode "The Duck Knight Returns!", as a cynical faded star, who is upset to learn that Scrooge's film studio McDuck Studios is rebooting the franchise and replacing him with a younger actor. As his plans to regain the role fail, he finally loses his mind and attempts to kill his successor, Drake Mallard, only to seemingly perish himself. However, unbeknownst to the world, he survived and has begun plotting his revenge, now sporting a discolored costume.
The actual animated Darkwing Duck series originally aired from 1991–1992, as a spin-off of the original DuckTales series, with Launchpad as the titular character's sidekick. Starling's name was chosen by the producers as a nod to voice actor Jim Cummings, who voiced both Darkwing Duck in the original series, as well as DuckTales’ Starling.

- The Buzzard Brothers (voiced by Marc Evan Jackson) – The three Buzzard Brothers (of which two have had their first names revealed: Bentley and Bradford) make up the board of directors of McDuck Enterprises. They first appear in the two-part pilot, and typically attempt to convince Scrooge that the company needs to cut down on its spendings. They reappear in "The Great Dime Chase!" and "Last Christmas!,, and make non-speaking appearances in flashbacks in "The Last Crash of the Sunchaser!" (which reveals them to be the reason Scrooge had to stop searching for his niece Della) and "The 87 Cent Solution!"(as guests at Scrooge's fake funeral).
- Johnny and Randy (both voiced by Keith Ferguson) – Twin rooster 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. The characters, and their show, make their first appearance in "The Great Dime Chase!", where Glomgold is their guest, and continue to appear throughout the first seasons.
- Charybdis (voice by Fred Tatasciore) – Charybdis is a terrifying but ultimately friendly sea monster who resides in Selene's temple on Ithaquack. Based on the mythological sea monster of the same name, it makes appearances in "The Spear of Selene!" and "Treasure of the Found Lamp!".
- Meta-fictional Darkwing Duck supervillains appear as Launchpad and other characters watch episodes of the Darkwing Duck show-within-a-show: scenes with jester/toy-themed villain Quackerjack (voiced by Michael Bell), electricity powered villain Megavolt (voiced by Keith Ferguson), and water-based villain The Liquidator (voiced by Corey Burton) appear in "Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System!", while Launchpad and Beakley watch a scene featuring supernatural entity Paddywhack (voiced by Jim Cummings) in "Friendship Hates Magic!". Another version of Megavolt (again voiced by Ferguson) is featured as a character in the attempt to reboot the franchise in "The Duck Knight Returns!", which also includes several non-speaking cameo appearances by the other characters.
Quackerjack, Megavolt, The Liquidator, and Paddywhack were all originally created by Tad Stones as villains on the animated Darkwing Duck series.
- Doofus' butler and maid (voiced by Yuri Lowenthal and Tara Platt, respectively) – Doofus' butler and maid are actually his father and mother who are forced by their son to serve as his servants. Terrified of their son, they bend to his every whim, and appear by his side in "Day of the Only Child!" and "Treasure of the Found Lamp!".
- Gibbous and Zenith (voiced by Rob Paulsen and April Winchell, respectively) – Gibbous and Zenith are a married couple of civilian Moonlanders who are smitten by Della's stories from Earth, and later encounter Donald.
Spin-off media characters
- Merlock (voiced by Christopher Lloyd) – Merlock is a powerful warlock who uses a green talisman to shape-shift into various (non-anthropomorphic) animals. He is the main antagonist of DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, in which he seeks to find the magic lamp, and gain unlimited wishes by combining it with his talisman. One time he did that, he used its combined powers to gain immortality, the sinking of Atlantis (which was depicted as a famous resort city where he couldn't get a reservation), the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii, and the creation of anchovy pizza (which was replaced by broccoli pizza in the Italian dub). He eventually falls to his apparent death.
Since the movie, Merlock has made appearances in several general themed Disney media, including the video games Legend of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers (the later in which he is voiced by Corey Burton).
- Drake Von Vladstone (voiced by Frank Welker) – Drake Von Vladstone, alias Count Dracula Duck, is the final villain of the video game Ducktales and its remake DuckTales: Remastered. He is a Transylvanian vampire who gets resurrected by Magica De Spell.
