This article includes a partial list of characters from the animated series DuckTales.


McDuck household

  • Scrooge McDuck - The richest duck in the world and the main protagonist, Scrooge is constantly seeking ways to further increase his wealth, and to avoid losing it. The only thing Scrooge values more than money is his family. Voiced by Alan Young.
  • Huey Duck, Dewey Duck and Louie Duck - Identical triplets, and Scrooge's grand nephews. Usually clothed in identical outfits that only differed in color - each of the three wore a specific color. All voiced by Russi Taylor.
    • Huey Duck (red clothes) - Huey serves as the leader of the trio and is very skilled at playing marbles.
    • Dewey Duck (blue clothes) - Dewey is arguably the most clever of the three and he also tends to serve as leader more often than Huey.
    • Louie Duck (green clothes) - Louie is probably the most creative thinker of the bunch.
  • Webbigail "Webby" Vanderquack - Female child who secretly wants to be accepted as the fourth "nephew". Voiced by Russi Taylor.
  • Mrs. Bentina Beakley - Maid/Nanny of the household, and maternal grandmother to Webby. Voiced by Joan Gerber.
  • Duckworth the Butler - 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 were Duckworth's Revolt and Take Me Out of the Ballgame. He first appeared in the pilot episode of DuckTales. Duckworth is a jack-of-all-trades in the McDuck mansion, making him an important member of Scrooge's staff. Voiced by Chuck McCann.
  • Bubba the Caveduck - a young caveduck that Scrooge adopted in the second season of the show. He stowed away in Gyro's Time Machine. More critical fans may claim his introduction as a permanent character signaled when DuckTales jumped the shark. Indeed, once Bubba was introduced, the writers seemed to have a difficult time figuring out what to do with him. Most episodes had him simply acting as a fourth nephew, having little to no impact on the plot. Later in the second season Gizmoduck (who would become the focus of several episodes and is generally better liked by fans) was introduced, and Bubba vanished from the series almost entirely, with no explanation as to what became of him. Bubba was, in fact, only in one episode with Gizmoduck, "Metal Attraction," where he has a short cameo. Voiced by Frank Welker.
  • Tootsie the Triceratops - Bubba's pet Triceratops who stowed away with Bubba.

Friends

  • Launchpad McQuack - Scrooge's pilot. An able flyer, Launchpad can scarcely set a plane down without a massive crash, yet has survived numerous crashes without injury; he is also easily capable of aerial feats bordering on the impossible. As shown in "The Golden Goose (Part II)," he can actually land a plane safely. Later appeared on Darkwing Duck. Voiced by Terry McGovern.
  • Gyro Gearloose - An inventor who often works for Scrooge, designing anything from relocation rays ("The Money Vanishes") to time machines ("Time Is Money"). 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—when anyone besides Gyro attempts to use them! Voiced by Hal Smith.
  • Doofus Drake - 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 paranormal powers to save the Junior Woodchucks from catastrophe, only to voluntarily relinquish them for the sake of hard work and friendship. Voiced by Brian Cummings.
  • Glittering Goldie - Scrooge's sweetheart. An original Carl Barks character from the comic "Back to the Klondike," Goldie's origins are as a music hall singer in Dawson. After Scrooge catches Goldie in an attempt to rob him of his recent gold poke, she repays the debt by helping him to work his claim at White Agony Creek. Over the next several months, the two fall in love. Though necessarily kept apart by career and distance (and also Scrooge's bachelor qualities, necessarily preserved to keep his character eccentric!), he and Goldie often cross paths, reaffirming their affection for each other through their strong personalities and resulting adventures.
  • Fenton Crackshell, also known as Gizmoduck - Scrooge's accountant (as himself) and personal bodyguard (as Gizmoduck), hired by Scrooge in the show's second season. He can count at a blazing speed, but he generally has bad luck with almost everything else. 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. Makes a few guest appearances on Darkwing Duck. Voiced by Hamilton Camp.
  • Mrs. Crackshell - Fenton's couch-potato mother. Voiced by Kathleen Freeman.
  • Gandra Dee - Fenton's girlfriend. Voiced by Miriam Flynn.
  • Mrs Featherby - Scrooge's secretary.
  • Gladstone Gander - Scrooge's distant nephew who is, much to Scrooge's annoyance, unfailingly lucky. Only appearing in three episodes ("Dime Enough for Luck," "Sweet Duck of Youth," and "Dr. Jekyl and Mr. McDuck"), Gladstone is far better known in the comic books. Voiced by Rob Paulsen.
