Main characters[edit]

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, a distinguished citizen of Duckburg, Calisota, and the main protagonist of the original series and the 2017 reboot series, originally created by Carl Barks for his 1947 story "Christmas on Bear Mountain".

Scrooge McDuck has been quoted as saying he basis his style of play on Trent Alexander Arnold and likes to make marauding runs in to the opponents box.

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. Pat Fraley provided the voice for the younger Scrooge in flashback episode "Once Upon a Dime".[2][3]

In the 2017 series, Scrooge's Scottish heritage, 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 Glasgow, 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".[4] In his younger days he used to conduct adventures with his nephew Donald and niece Della joining him.[5] However, Della's disappearance led to Donald cutting off his relationship with Scrooge, and Scrooge losing the spark for adventure.[6][7] Ten years later, as seen in the pilot episode, Scrooge regains his energy when he is reunited with Donald and introduced to his grandnephews for the first time.[5] The reboot sees him wearing a red jacket with visible pockets and black cuffs, spats, and collar, as per his comic book appearance.
According to Frank Angones, several lines involving Scrooge using Scottish slang or dialogue are improvised by Tennant, who is also Scottish, in order to provide an accurate depiction of Scottish people.[8][9]

Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck[edit]

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 the nephews of Donald Duck through his sister Della, friends of Webby, 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.[10] 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".[11][3]

In the 2017 series, Huey (short for Hubert), Dewey (Dewford), and Louie (Llewellyn) are depicted as slightly older, and given distinct appearances, voices and personalities – Huey is the oldest of the triplets by three seconds and the smartest of the group, a devoted Junior Woodchuck wearing a red polo 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,[5] 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.[12]

Webby Vanderquack[edit]

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 friend of Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck.

In the 1987 series, she visually resembles April, May, and June from the Disney comics. 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,[13] koalas,[14] dinosaurs,[15] or even the Yeti.[16] 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,[17] although she is also a capable Junior Woodchuck scout.[18]

In the 2017 series, Webby is around the boys' age, being an intellectual nerd and somewhat of an athletic genius, 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.[19] Having spent most of her life sheltered from the outside world by her grandmother, 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.[19][17]

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.[20]

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,[21] but has been Scrooge's pilot since his early youth.[22] He is of Irish descent and his ancestor Rhubarb McQuack played an important role in the American Civil War,[23] and prior to the series Launchpad used to perform with his parents and sister as the stunt pilot team "The Flying McQuacks".[24] Aside from being a pilot, he is also a Junior Woodchuck scout leader.[25][18] 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 crossed over 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. Like his 1987 incarnation, Launchpad is a Junior Woodchuck scout leader.[26][27] He is also an avid fan of the Darkwing Duck show-within-a-show (an allusion to his role in the original Darkwing Duck series), as evidenced by a bobblehead and a series of video tapes he owns as well as his watching the show with the family.[28][7][29][30]

Bentina Beakley[edit]

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 hairpins 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.[21] She has been in the line of work for a long time and used to take care of the young Prince Greydrake,[31] and she has proven to be a capable opera singer.[32]

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 before 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.[33] 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.[6] 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.[5] Donald and Della refer to her as "Mrs. B" and Beakley and Donald did 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.[34] 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.[35] Beakley's relationship with Scrooge's butler Duckworth is frosty, due to him criticizing her housework.[36]

Donald Duck[edit]

Donald Duck (voiced by Tony Anselmo) 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.[37][38] After leaving his nephews with Scrooge in order to serve with the US Navy,[10][21] he makes occasional appearances while crossing paths with the rest of the Ducks during their adventures.[39][40][41][42][43] In the first season finale, he returns to Duckburg to serve as best man at Scrooge's wedding to Millionara Vanderbucks.[44] 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.[7] 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.[5] After a mishap leads him to becoming involved in a new adventure with Scrooge (and losing 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. In "Whatever Happened to Donald Duck?!", it's revealed that his anger was rooted in a fear that the world was out to get him and that no one could understand him. After Della had the triplets and taking anger management counseling with Jones, he channeled his anger into protecting his nephews like they were his kids.[45] Don Cheadle briefly provides an alternate voice for Donald in "The Shadow War!"[46][29] and in "Quack Pack!"[47][48] while original series star Russi Taylor voices the young Donald in "Last Christmas!".[49]

Della Duck[edit]

Della Duck (voiced by Paget Brewster[50]) is the mother of Huey, Dewey and Louie, and the twin sister of Donald Duck. While the character had previously appeared in Disney comics, the 2017 Ducktales series marks her first on-screen appearance in any official animated media.[51]

Before 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.[5] Her sons grew up without knowing their mother and the first season sees the ducklings – initially Dewey and Webby - investigating her disappearance.[6][52][53] 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.[54][55] The triplets eventually find out that 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.[7] In "The Shadow War!", she is shown to be alive and well, though stranded on the Moon and unable to contact Earth.[29] Her fate following the crash is seen 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, along with her skills as a former Junior Woodchuck. Ten years after the crash she encountered the hidden Lunar civilization of the Moonlanders.[56] 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,[57] and is reunited with her family (expect Donald, until the events of "Moonvasion!").[12][58] As seen in "Last Christmas", Della and Donald lived with Scrooge at McDuck Manor during their childhood[49] 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.

Main antagonists[edit]

The Beagle Boys[edit]

The Beagle Boys are the show's most frequently appearing antagonists; a large family of dogs who constantly try 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.

The 1987 series version of the Beagle Boys, introduced in the five-part pilot,[10] includes 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[59]) — 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!"[34] 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. He is also shown to be rather dimwitted, as he once tried to stick up a policeman's ball, didn't know that tanks can't float,[34] and didn't realize Ma kicked him out of the gang until several minutes had passed after she told him this.[60]
  • Burger Beagle (voiced by Chuck McCann in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered; Eric Bauza in the 2017 series[59]) — A dimwitted beagle who is constantly hungry.
    In the 2017 series, he debuts in the episode "Daytrip of Doom!"[34] 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[59]) — 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!",[34] 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) — A dopey beagle who dresses in baggy clothes and is most likely the least intelligent member 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 included three additional main Beagle Boys, who each appear in handful of episodes before making their final, non-speaking, appearance in "Super DuckTales":[61]
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.[49]

In both the 1987 and 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[67][59]) — The mother of the gang, created for the original DuckTales and modeled after real-life gang leader Ma Barker.[38] Ma has more experience than her boys, and always takes charge when she is around. She is introduced in "Robot Robbers",[64] and plays major roles in "Super DuckTales", where she celebrates her birthday,[68] and "The Bride Wore Stripes", where she poses as Scrooge's wife in order to gain access to his money.[69]
    In the 2017 series, Ma Beagle manages a junkyard, as seen in her debut episode "Daytrip of Doom!".[34] In "McMystery at McDuck McManor!", it's revealed that she and Glomgold share a mutual hatred of Mrs. Beakley and fondness for Duckworth, as well as attempted to steal the deed to Duckburg from Scrooge after he stole it from her "poor, defenseless" Grandpappy Beagle.[36] This is elaborated upon in "The Golden Armory of Cornelius Coot!", where she claims that Duckburg should be called "Beagleburg" and displays a hatred for Coots, Ducks, and McDucks.[60]

The 1987 series included several minor Beagle Boys, who have not appeared in the 2017 series as of yet:

  • Bomber Beagle (voiced by Robert Ridgely) — A relatively intelligent beagle and a skilled pilot, appearing in the episode "Top Duck".[24]
  • The Beagle Brats (voiced by Brian Cummings, Chuck McCann, and Terry McGovern) are a younger version of the Beagle Boys who appear in the episode-segment "Take Me Out of the Ballgame", where they, coached by Ma Beagle, face the Junior Woodchucks in a game of baseball.[70] The characters were originally created in 1965 by Vic Lockman and Tony Strobl as nephews of the main comic book Beagle Boys.[71]
  • The Blueblood BeaglesBonaparte (voiced by Frank Welker), Biceps (voiced by Chuck McCann), and Bearnaise (voiced by Chuck McCann), who physically resemble Bigtime, Bouncer, and Burger, respectively, are aristocratic Beagle Boys who appear in "The Status Seekers" while residing in the posh minimum-security Club Fed Penitentiary prison and assisting Charles Upstart III in finding the Mask of Kuthu-lulu.[72]
  • The Early 20th Century Beagles — This previous generation of Beagles, composed of Butch (voiced by Chuck McCann), Wild Bill (voiced by William Callaway) and an unnamed third member (voiced by Michael Rye), 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".[2]
  • Megabyte Beagle (voiced by Frank Welker[3]) — 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.[61][73]
  • The Beagle Babes - Boom-Boom (voiced by Victoria Carroll), Bouffant (voiced by Jo Anne Worley) and Babydoll (voiced by Susan Blu) - The Beagle Boys' female cousins who kidnapped Webby in the episode "The Good Muddahs".[74]
  • The Canadian Beagles - Backwoods (voiced by Danny Mann), Bacon (vocal effects by Frank Welker) and Binky (non-speaking) are a trio of rural Beagle Boys who appear in the episode "Ducky Mountain High" while assisting Glomgold.[75] Although Bacon is a (non-anthropomorphic) pig, Backwoods – who interprets Bacon's oinks and grunts – insists that Bacon and Binky are twins and that the former "had a bad case of the swine flu as a child".

In the 2017 series, several groups of minor Beagle Boys (all voiced by Eric Bauza) appear in the episode "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!":[76]

  • The Glam Yankees – A trio of Beagle Boys dressed as a combination of Colonial Yankees and glam rock musicians.
  • The Déjà Vus – A trio of French-themed Beagle Boys introduced as a running gag.
  • 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. According to the other Beagles, it's been rumored that they were adopted.
  • The Ugly Failures – A trio of dimwitted Beagle Boys regarded by Ma as disappointments due to their lack of success as criminals. This group is composed of 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!"[36] 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 Beagle Boys, 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.[36] 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.[49]

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!".[77]
  • Backfield Beagle – A football-playing Beagle Boy who also appeared in "Welcome to Beagle Island!".[77]
  • Bomber and Butcher Beagle – A pair of hockey-playing Beagle Boys who appeared in "The Mighty Ducks of Duckburg!".[78]

Flintheart Glomgold[edit]

Flintheart Glomgold (voiced by Hal Smith in the 1987 series; Brian George in DuckTales: Remastered; Keith Ferguson in the 2017 series[59]) is Scrooge's archenemy, 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 rewritten to be of Scottish descent for DuckTales.[79]

In the 1987 series, he first appears in the second part of the pilot episode,[80] 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.[81]

In the 2017 series, debuting in "Woo-oo!",[5] he runs 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 celebrate his death before he is even buried.[82] He and Ma Beagle also share a mutual hatred of Mrs. Beakley and fondness for Duckworth.[36] In "The Ballad of Duke Baloney!", after recovering from amnesia caused by the events of "The Shadow War!",[29] 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 in an attempt to teach him self-reliance and hard work, 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.[83] In "GlomTales!", Glomgold forms an alliance with several of Scrooge's greatest enemies and Louie in a last ditch effort to win a bet he made with Scrooge after he regained his memory. He seemingly won after Louie convinced the other villains to pool their resources with Glomgold's, but he ends up losing everything to the young Duck because "Flintheart Glomgold" isn't his real name and he signed a contract stating everything would revert to his partner (Louie); forcing him to escape from the angry villains after they turn on him.[84] Despite what happened, he returns in "Moonvasion!", to help Scrooge defeat the Moonlanders with one of his insane schemes, since General Lunaris had a counter for all of Scrooge's plans, and trick him into returning his company to him.[58]
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".[85]

Magica De Spell[edit]

Magica De Spell (voiced by June Foray in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered; Catherine Tate in the 2017 series[86]) 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 makes her first appearance in "Send in the Clones",[63] living on a distant island inside a volcano in the shape of her head. She speaks with an Eastern European accent, and is often assisted by her brother Poe, who was trapped in the shape of a raven.[63][87][88] While she mostly appeared in the show's first season, she makes one final appearance in the season three episode, "The Unbreakable Bin".[89]

In the 2017 series, Magica is "a vile sorceress with a mysterious, ancient grudge against Clan McDuck",[29] serving as the main antagonist of season one. First appearing in "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!",[76] while making her first speaking appearance in "Terror of the Terra-firmians!",[35] Magica (trapped in a shadowy form) pressures her "niece" Lena into infiltrating the Duck family so she can steal the Number One Dime and regain her corporeal form.[90] 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.[91] Magica's past is revealed in "The Shadow War!": Fifteen years ago, Scrooge sealed Magica's physical form in a pocket dimension within his Number One Dime. At the last second though, she used a spell to create Lena from a part of her shadow, thus remaining in contact with the outside world.[29] In the 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. After a climactic battle in Scrooge's Money Bin, Magica is defeated by the Duck Family and rendered powerless; forcing her to escape.[29] In "A Nightmare on Killmotor Hill!", she returns to haunt Lena and the kids in their dreams using a telepathic helmet as the former has part of her powers, but her plan ultimately fails and Lena destroys her helmet.[92] In "GlomTales!", while forced to work as a birthday party magician, she joins an alliance of villains brought together by Glomgold to destroy Scrooge and his family, only to be defeated once again.[84]
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.

Mark Beaks[edit]

Mark Beaks (voiced by Josh Brener[59]) is an African grey parrot[93] who is a young tech industry billionaire and CEO of Waddle. He cares more about his own image and popularity than his fortune, going to great lengths to gain as many followers on social media as he can as well as keeping several back-up phones on hand 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,[94]. 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.[28] 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.[95] In season two, he makes a (non-speaking) appearance as he's attacked by harpies[96] 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 manage to defeat him and turn him back to normal.[97] In "Happy Birthday, Doofus Drake!", Beaks creates a robot called B.O.Y.D. (Beaks Optimistic Youth Droid) to pose as his son in order to attend Doofus Drake's birthday party. Louie exposes Beaks' deception, leading Doofus to drop him into his "Honey Bin".[98] In "GlomTales!", Beaks joins Flintheart Glomgold's alliance to destroy Scrooge and his family, and help him win a bet he made with the former; though the alliance is foiled in the end.[84] During the Moonlander invasion, Beaks gets a selfie with two Moonlander soldiers before he's captured.[58] In "Louie's Eleven!", he attempts to steal his mother, trendsetter Emma Glamour's, phone; only to be thwarted by Donald and Daisy Duck.[99]
The character is a creation exclusive to the 2017 series, and has been described by the producers as "Gizmoduck's Lex Luthor".[100]

General Lunaris[edit]

General Lunaris (voiced by Lance Reddick) is a high-ranking moon-dwelling alien called a Moonlander, exclusive to the 2017 series, who encounters Della during her years stuck on the Moon.[56] He is the main antagonist of season two. While initially appearing kind and understanding, he is secretly resentful of the Earth due to his father's fear of the planet, and intends to one day assert the moon's dominance over its people. After Della fixes the Spear of Selene and returns to Earth, Lunaris deceives his people into thinking that Della is their enemy, and declares war on Earth.[57] When Donald accidentally ends up on the Moon, Lunaris takes him captive.[12] Whilst overseeing preparations for the invasion, Lunaris' associate Penumbra works against him to foil his plans, but he catches onto her quickly and stops her before she can destroy his rocket fleet. Though he nearly catches Donald, the determined duck is able to escape to Earth in Lunaris' prototype rocket; leading the Moonlander to believe he couldn't have survived.[45] In "Moonvasion!", Lunaris launches his invasion, having developed countermeasures for any plan Scrooge could devise, and uses a powerful planetary engine to force the Earth to revolve around the moon. However, due to an unpredictable scheme by Glomgold, he is defeated by Scrooge's family and Penumbra; leaving his engine adrift in Earth's orbit as its new moon, much to his dismay.[58]

While the Moonlanders' civilization was created for the 2017 series, it is inspired by the Moon Stage of the DuckTales and DuckTales: Remastered video games.[101] The soundtrack of the Moon Stage is also used in several of the show's Moon-based scenes – most notably as a lullaby sung by Della in the episode "Whatever Happened to Della Duck?!"[56] and "Moonvasion!" alongside Louie, who reveals Donald learned the song and sung it to the triplets while Della was missing.[58]

F.O.W.L.[edit]

F.O.W.L., the Fiendish Organization for World Larceny, is a global criminal organization. Inspired by the terrorist organization S.P.E.C.T.R.E. from Ian Fleming's James Bond novels, F.O.W.L. is first introduced as a minor antagonist in the 1987 DuckTales episode, "Double-O-Duck" (where the "F" stood for "Foreign" instead). In the episode, the group plotted to destroy all the world's money; leading the Duckburg Intelligence Agency to ask Launchpad to infiltrate their ranks due to his strong resemblance to one of their agents. Their members included Dr. Nogood, Odd-Duck, Bruno Von Beak, and Feathers Galore.[102] The group was later reworked for the Darkwing Duck animated series, appearing as recurring antagonists opposed by the spy agency S.H.U.S.H.[103]

In the 2017 series, F.O.W.L. is introduced during a flashback to the 1960s, when Mrs. Beakley (then known as Agent 22), teams up with Scrooge as part of a S.H.U.S.H. assignment to prevent F.O.W.L. from obtaining the gummiberry juice potion needed to create an army of super soldiers.[33] Following Lunaris' invasion, F.O.W.L. decides that Scrooge and his family are too much of a risk to their organization and the world, and starts planning to eliminate them, serving as the main antagonists of season three.[58] In "Challenge of the Senior Junior Woodchucks", they secretly engage the Duck Family in a race to find all the lost treasures of legendary explorer Isabella Finch before they do after they find her lost adventure journal.[27] Their membership is as follows:

  • Board of Directors (all voiced by Marc Evan Jackson) – Three vultures who make up McDuck Enterprises' board of directors. They first appear in the two-part pilot,[5] and typically attempt to convince Scrooge that the company needs to cut down on its spendings. They reappear in "The Great Dime Chase!",[6] "Last Christmas!,[49] and "The Richest Duck in the World!";[104] as well as make non-speaking appearances in "The Last Crash of the Sunchaser!" (which reveals them to be the reason Scrooge had to stop searching for his niece Della in flashbacks[7]) and "The 87 Cent Solution!" (as guests at Scrooge's fake funeral[82]). After the Moonlander invasion, they are revealed to be F.O.W.L.'s High Command.[58][105]
  • Black Heron (voiced by April Winchell) – A chemist, martial artist, and robotics expert turned agent of F.O.W.L. as well as an old enemy from Mrs. Beakley's time as a S.H.U.S.H. agent. In the 1960s, she attempted to steal the lost page of the Great Book of Castle Dunwyn to complete the gummiberry juice formula, but is thwarted by Beakley and Scrooge as well as presumed dead after she was caught in an explosion. Years later, she kidnaps Beakley to exact revenge and complete the formula, only to be defeated by Webby before falling into the ocean.[33] She is later revealed to have survived the encounter and is now working with F.O.W.L. to eliminate Scrooge and his family.[58] In "Double-O-Duck in You Only Crash Twice!", she attempted to build an Intelli-Ray using F.O.W.L.'s Third Eye Diamond as a power source, but Steelbeak became fed up with her putting him down and hijacked her operation. Despite Steelbeak's failure, they were both reprimanded by Director Buzzard for going against F.O.W.L.'s mission statement of covertly stealing the world out from under Scrooge.[105]
  • John D. Rockerduck (voiced by John Hodgman[106]) – An Old West robber baron who encountered Scrooge and Goldie O'Gilt while attempting to steal the town of Gumption Junction's enormous gold nugget, only to be thwarted by them.[107] In the present, Rockerduck has become an agent of F.O.W.L. and survived in a cryogenically frozen state.[58]
    Originally created by Barks in 1961, Rockerduck is a frequently appearing comic book character, as a present-day business rival of Scrooge's.
    • Jeeves (voiced by Keith Ferguson) – Rockerduck's personal assistant and enforcer. He assisted Rockerduck in protecting the gold nugget by capturing Scrooge and Goldie, but they bribed him into facilitating their escape.[107] In the present, Jeeves has been artificially reconstructed as a robot and becomes responsible for Rockerduck's care while he is in suspended animation.[58]
      The character was created in the 1970s, first appearing in Italian Disney comics under the name "Lusky". There, he was portrayed as Rockerduck's secretary, who acted as his support on adventures.
  • Gandra Dee (voiced by Miriam Flynn in the 1987 series, Jameela Jamil in the 2017 series[108]) – Fenton's love-interest, whose name is a pun on the actress, Sandra Dee. In the 1987 series, she was first introduced as a minor character with no association to F.O.W.L. in the five-part episode "Super DuckTales", which ended with her and Fenton's first date.[68][61][109] Gandra reappears in "Metal Attraction", where she and Fenton have become a couple amidst the robot Robotica's attempts to kill her after falling in love with Gizmoduck;[110] "The Big Flub", where she stars in a series of commercials directed by Fenton so he can get promoted;[111] and "The Duck Who Knew Too Much", where she and Fenton accidentally become involved with international spies while on vacation.[112]
    In the 2017 series, Gandra Dee is reimagined as 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 Fenton stop him before making a stealthy exit.[97] She is later revealed to be an agent of F.O.W.L.[58]
  • Phantom Blot (voiced by Frank Welker in the 1987 series) – A supervillain resembling a blot of ink. The character appeared in the 1987 Ducktales episode "All Ducks on Deck", where he steals an invisible bomber plane from the aircraft carrier Donald is serving on; planning to create more invisible planes to take over the world.[43]
    In the 2017 series, the Phantom Blot is a F.O.W.L. agent who works undercover in the guise of Funso, the mascot of the Funso's Fun Zone amusement center,[58] which also doubles as a F.O.W.L. base.[105]
    The character first appeared in the Mickey Mouse comic strip adventure Mickey Mouse Outwits the Phantom Blot by Floyd Gottfredson, and has since become a recurring enemy of Mickey Mouse in various media. According to Frank Angones, the creative team drew on elements of the original comic character, the 1987 DuckTales version, and the Shadow Blot from the video game Epic Mickey when creating the 2017 incarnation of the Blot.[113]
  • Steelbeak (voiced by Jason Mantzoukas[114]) – A rooster agent of F.O.W.L. with a metallic beak and a thug-like personality.[58] In "Double-O-Duck in You Only Crash Twice!", he assisted Black Heron in building and testing her Intelli-Ray, only to grow frustrated with her for insulting his intelligence. He eventually had enough and hijacked her operation to make all of Duckburg stupid, but he was foiled by Launchpad and a group of lab rats Heron had tested the Intelli-Ray on.[105]
    He was first introduced as a recurring antagonist in the Darkwing Duck animated series, where he was depicted as a competent member of F.O.W.L.
  • Eggheads (various voices) — F.O.W.L.'s foot soldiers. The characters first appeared in Darkwing Duck, in which they were referred to as "Eggmen". They were renamed in DuckTales to reflect their ranks not being exclusively male.[115]

Supporting characters[edit]

Appearing in both series[edit]

Duckworth the Butler[edit]

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,[10] 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 where he explained the difference between employment and slavery to their fellow prisoners,[116] and in the episode-segment "Take Me Out of the Ballgame" where he acts as the temporary coach of the Junior Woodchuck baseball team.[70]

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!",[36] 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".[117] His ghost has since returned to his duties as Scrooge's faithful butler.[36][118][49][117][84][58][99]

Gyro Gearloose[edit]

Gyro Gearloose (voiced by Hal Smith in the 1987 series; Chris Edgerly in DuckTales: Remastered; Jim Rash in the 2017 series[59]) 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.

Doofus Drake[edit]

Doofus Drake (voiced by Brian Cummings in the 1987 series; John Gemberling in the 2017 series) is an acquaintance of Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and an original DuckTales character.

Mrs. Featherby / Mrs. Quackfaster[edit]

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),[15] "Hero for Hire" (voiced by Gerber),[62] "Super DuckTales" (non-speaking),[68] "Blue Collar Scrooge" (voiced by Blu),[119] and finally (voiced by Foray) in "Beaglemania" and "Yuppy Ducks".[120][121] Additionally, she also appears in DuckTales the Movie (voiced by Foray).

In the 2017 series, debuting in "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.[6] In season two, she is seen defending the archive from harpies,[96] attending Scrooge's (ultimately fake) funeral,[82] working part-time at Duckburg's public library,[30] conducting tours at Fort Duckburg,[122] and assisting Scrooge in repelling the Moonlander invasion.[58]

Goldie O'Gilt[edit]

Goldie O'Gilt, a.k.a. Glittering Goldie (voiced by Joan Gerber in the 1987 series; Allison Janney in the 2017 series[59]) is Scrooge's longtime love interest, and an original Carl Barks character from the 1952 comic book story "Back to the Klondike". The producers of the 2017 series has called her the Catwoman to Scrooge's Batman.[59]

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.[123] She reappears in the episodes "Scroogerello", as a figment of Scrooge's dream,[66] "'Till Nephews Do Us Part", interrupting Scrooge's wedding to Millionara Vanderbucks,[44] and "Ducky Mountain High", where Scrooge and Glomgold fight for Goldie's property only to see Goldie walking out on top.[75]

In the 2017 series, she first appears in "The Golden Lagoon of White Agony Plains!", as Scrooge's former girlfriend, partner, and rival; out-smarting both him and Glomgold. 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.[4] In season two, she first makes a (non-speaking) appearance at the first annual McDuck Enterprises Christmas party[49] before returning in a major role in "The Outlaw Scrooge McDuck!", in which she joins forces with Scrooge, a time-traveling Gyro, and Fenton's ancestor Sheriff Marshall Cabrera against John D. Rockerduck.[107] In "Happy Birthday, Doofus Drake!", she reappears in the present day after Louie invites her to McDuck Manor to help him become a better con artist, before getting caught up in a scheme to con Doofus Drake out of several million dollars in party favors. Following a series of double-crosses and being held hostage by Doofus, Goldie eventually gets what she came for, but keeps a picture of Louie to remember him by.[98]

Ludwig Von Drake[edit]

Ludwig Von Drake (voiced by Corey Burton) is an established Disney character, appearing in several Disney animation productions beginning in 1961.[124] 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".[125]

In the 2017 series, he is an old colleague of Scrooge's,[126] and debuts in "From the Confidential Case Files of Agent 22!", appearing in a flashback segment set in 1968.[127] 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.[33] 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[128]), established in case of worldwide disaster.[126]

S.H.U.S.H. was first introduced, albeit without Von Drake, as a recurring organization in the Darkwing Duck animated series.[103]

Gladstone Gander[edit]

Gladstone Gander (voiced by Rob Paulsen in the 1987 series; Paul F. Tompkins in the 2017 series[59]) 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 "Dime Enough for Luck", where Magica tries to use his good luck to steal Scrooge's Number One Dime,[129] but he is also seen bidding at an auction in "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. McDuck"[130] and he makes non-speaking cameo appearances in "Sweet Duck of Youth"[131] and "'Till Nephews Do Us Part".[44]

In the 2017 series he is introduced in "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.[132] In the first-season finale, he is shown to have returned to Duckburg where his shadow is stolen by Magica De Spell.[29] He later appears in the second-season episodes "Treasure of the Found Lamp!", during the nephews' hunt to reclaim D'jinn's lamp,[117] and "Moonvasion!", where he teams up with his cousin, Fethry Duck, to rescue Donald, Della, and the kids before taking them back to Duckburg to help Scrooge stop the Moonlanders.[58]

Downy and Fergus McDuck[edit]

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".[133]

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",[2] 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 built by Scrooge's great-great-grandfather Silas McDuck, a character who makes his only appearance here.[134]

Initially in the 2017 series, Downy and Fergus only appear in portraits at McDuck Manor,[5] after which they make their proper debut in "The Secret(s) of Castle McDuck!".[53] 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.[5] Several additional ancestors are referred to in "The Secret(s) of Castle McDuck!",[53] and further evolved upon in the tie-in book "DuckTales: Solving Mysteries and Rewriting History!”.[127] 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[edit]

Bubba the Caveduck (voiced by Frank Welker in the 1987 series and DuckTales: Remastered; Dee Bradley Baker in the 2017 series) is a young caveduck that Scrooge adopts. The character was originally pitched by Tad Stones as "Bubbaduck".[135][136]

In the 1987 series, he first appears in the five-part episode "Time Is Money", which opens season two.[137] 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.[138]

In the 2017 series, Bubba and Tootsie are introduced in "Timephoon", where Louie's latest get-rich-quick scheme involving Gyro Gearloose's Time Tub causes historical people (including Bubba and Tootsie) to appear in the present while sending Scrooge and his family to different time periods. Bubba proves to be highly adaptive, immediately adjusting to life in the future, and is implied to be the original ancestor of Clan McDuck. Meanwhile, Tootsie is re-imagined as a very aggressive young dinosaur, with no relationship with Bubba as she hails from a much earlier time period than him.[139] Despite being returned to the past, the two are set to return in the third season.[140]

Fenton Crackshell (-Cabrera) / Gizmoduck[edit]

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.[135][136]

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".[68][141] 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,[142] M'Ma Crackshell,[112] and the nephews and Webby.[143] Gizmoduck (Fenton) also makes a few guest appearances in Darkwing Duck.[144][145][146][147][148]

In the 2017 series, he is re-imagined as a Latin American intern & semi-competent scientist working under Gyro,[149] and debuts in "Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System!".[28] 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.[95][82][97][58] In "Astro B.O.Y.D.!", Fenton was promoted to full-time and unofficially made a doctor.[150]

M'Ma Crackshell / M'Ma Cabrera[edit]

M'Ma Crackshell (1987) or M'Ma Cabrera (2017) (voiced by Kathleen Freeman in the 1987 series; Selenis Leyva in the 2017 series) is Fenton's mother.

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".[68][61][109] She then returns to play bigger parts in "My Mother the Psychic", in which she gains the ability to foresee the future,[151] "Blue Collar Scrooge", in which she begins to date an amnesiac Scrooge,[119] "The Duck Who Knew Too Much", in which she takes on the Gizmo-suit and saves Fenton from international spies,[112] and "New Gizmo-Kids on the Block", in which she accidentally shrinks the Gizmo-suit.[143] Additionally, she makes minor appearances in "The Big Flub" and "A Case of Mistaken Secret Identity".[111][142]

In the 2017 series, she is reimagined as a no-nonsense Latina detective for the Duckburg Police Department.[152] While she lives an active lifestyle, 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?!".[95] She makes non-speaking appearances in "The Shadow War!" and "Storkules in Duckburg!", where she is seen foiling crimes.[29][96] She also has a minor speaking role in "The Dangerous Chemistry of Gandra Dee!", where she gives her son dating advice,[97] and a major role in "Moonvasion!", where she assists Scrooge in repelling the Moonlander invasion alongside her son; to whom she reveals that she always knew about his secret identity since she's a detective and his mother.[58]

Dijon / Faris D'jinn[edit]

Dijon (1987) or Faris D'jinn (2017) (voiced by Richard Libertini in the 1987 series and DuckTales the Movie, Omid Abtahi in the 2017 series[153]) is a Middle Eastern acquaintance of the Ducks, created for DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.

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,[154] and in the two-part series finale "The Golden Goose", he is reunited with his estranged brother, Poupon.[155][156]

In the 2017 series, he has been reimagined as a jackal and 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!" where he looks for his lost lamp that was passed between Gladstone Gander, Doofus Drake, and Ma Beagle after it was part of a garage sale overseen by Duckworth's ghost.[117] During the Moonlander invasion, Djinn was seen with Amunet and the living mummies fighting the Moonlanders in Egypt.[58]

Gene the Genie[edit]

Gene the Genie (voiced by Rip Taylor in DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp; Jaleel White in the 2017 series) is the genie of the movie's title lamp. As such, he's targeted by the evil sorcerer, Merlock, but eventually ends up becoming a real boy and a friend of the kids of McDuck Manor.

In the 2017 series, Gene first appeared in "Quack Pack!", while the Duck family were searching for the Lost Lamp of Collie Baba, which Gene had been trapped in ever since the year 1990. When Donald wished for a normal family life, Gene obliged by erasing the family's memories and sending them into a '90s sitcom. While the family went through the motions of an episode plotline, Gene made "guest appearances" in commercials and as a photographer. The family eventually realized what happened to them and demand Gene send them back, but he reveals only Donald can undo the wish since he was the one who made it. Despite Donald initially refusing to and the wish fighting to maintain itself when the Ducks tried to escape, Donald is convinced to use his second wish to undo the first. After fulfilling Donald's last wish for a framed family photo, Gene disappears to parts unknown.[157][48]

Exclusive to the 1987 series[edit]

  • Admiral Grimitz (voiced by Peter Cullen[3])  — 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 kablooey".[42] His name is a spoof of Admiral Chester W. Nimitz. After making a non-speaking cameo appearance in the first part of the pilot episode,[10] he makes his proper debut in "Sphinx for the Memories",[39] and returns alongside Donald throughout season one.[40][41][42][43]
  • Poe (voiced by Frank Welker[3]) — Magica's brother and familiar, always seen in the shape of a (non-anthropomorphic) raven, and assisting her in three episodes.[63][87][88] 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.[63] 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".[87]

Exclusive to the 2017 series[edit]

  • Lena Sabrewing[158] (voiced by Kimiko Glenn[159]) — A street smart and seemingly carefree teenage girl. She first appears in "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!" when she befriends Webby.[76] In secret, however, she was 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. As the first season progressed, Lena became increasingly torn between her aunt's villainous schemes and her growing friendship with Webby.[35][90] 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.[91] In the season one finale, the ducklings discovers that she is actually a shadow created by Magica to get revenge on Scrooge and free herself. During the final battle, Lena is able to strike back at Magica, but ends up sacrificing herself to protect Webby.[29] Lena continued to watch over Webby from the "shadow realm", and with the help of newfound friend Violet, Webby is able to bring Lena back to the world of the living.[30] In "A Nightmare on Killmotor Hill!", Lena struggles with nightmares of becoming Magica as she is still her shadow and plans a slumber party for Webby, Violet, and the boys to keep herself awake. After accidentally trapping them in a shared dream with Magica's powers and nearly losing herself when Magica invades said dream, her friends are able to save her and foil Magica, helping her realize she doesn't need Magica and overcome her fear of becoming her.[92] She makes a minor appearance in "Moonvasion!", where she assists in Scrooge's counterattack against the Moonlanders with her magic.[58] As of season 3, Lena has moved in with Violet's family.[27]
    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.[160][161]
  • Greek gods – Old acquaintances of Donald, Della, and Scrooge. The trio is introduced in "The Spear of Selene!" when the Duck family visit Ithaquack, their home island in the Mediterranean Sea.[52]
    • Storkules (voiced by Chris Diamantopoulos) – The god of strength and heroes. He is physically imposing, noble, and pure-hearted, but also naïve and somewhat clueless. He idolizes Donald, who finds Storkules' well-meaning gestures invasive. In season two, he moves to Duckburg to become Donald's tenant after being kicked out of his home by his father.[96] When the Moonlanders invade, Zeus had recalled Storkules to Ithaquack and refused to let him help Donald or Scrooge. After tying up Zeus off-screen, Storkules helps set the Earth back in orbit with his strength after the Moonlanders attached a planetary engine to make it revolve around the moon.[58]
    • Selene (voiced by Nia Vardalos) – The goddess of the moon. She is Storkules' sister and a dear friend of Della's, who named The Spear of Selene in her honor. She returns in season two as Scrooge, Webby, and D'jinn visit Ithaquack.[117] When the Moonlanders invade, Selene is forbidden by Zeus to help fight the Moonlanders, though she's able to apologize to Della for not being of any help to her at this time. After tying up Zeus off-screen, Selene later appears to inform Lunaris that he has become Earth's new moon after his plan was foiled and her brother Storkules put the Earth back in its proper orbit.[58]
    • Zeus (voiced by Michael Chiklis) – The king of the gods and the god of thunder and hospitality. He is the father of Storkules and Selene. He suffers from an inferiority complex towards Scrooge. He briefly turns up in Duckburg in season two, where he's enraged by Storkules and Dewey when they come across a copy of Hermes' winged sandals.[57] When it came to the Moonlander invasion, Zeus tries to keep Selene and Storkules from helping Scrooge repel the alien invaders as he does not want to help Scrooge. However, they manage to stand up to him and tie him up off-screen.[58]
While the trio is a 2017 series creation based on Roman hero Hercules, the Moon Titan Selene, and the Greek deity Zeus, the island of Ithaquack (based on Homer's Ithaca) first appeared in the 1987 series.[40]
  • Jim Starling (voiced by Jim Cummings[162]) — An actor and the former star of the live-action superhero television series, Darkwing Duck, a show-within-a-show where he played the title character. Launchpad, who grew up watching the show and considers himself its biggest fan, describes Starling as "an old school actor who did all his own stunts".[28] While initially only appearing as the Darkwing Duck character,[28][29][30] Starling is introduced in "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, Drake Mallard. As his plans to regain the role fail, he finally loses his mind and attempts to kill his successor, only to seemingly perish himself. Unbeknownst to the world, he survived and has begun plotting his revenge; now sporting a discolored costume.[163]
    The actual animated Darkwing Duck series originally aired from 1991–1992, as a spin-off of the original DuckTales series, with Launchpad as the title 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.[164] Starling's altered costume notably mirrors that of arch-villain Negaduck of the animated series; a character also voiced by Cummings.[165] Although DuckTalesDarkwing Duck crossover comic books have been produced, this marks the first occurrence of Darkwing in DuckTales animation.[166]
  • Don Karnage (voiced by Jaime Camil[167]) — The brutal, vain leader of a band of sky pirates based on an air carrier, The Iron Vulture, debuting in "Sky Pirates...in the Sky!"; wherein he encountered the Duck Family and swore vengeance against Dewey for upstaging him.[168] Don Karnage returned in "GlomTales", where Flintheart Glomgold recruits him to help him destroy Scrooge McDuck's family. He accepts under the condition that he can finish off Dewey. The alliance is ultimately defeated and turn on Glomgold.[84] He is set to return in the third season.[157]
    The character originated as the main villain of the 1990s animated series, TaleSpin.
  • Fethry Duck (voiced by Tom Kenny[169]) — An energetic and rather peculiar cousin of Donald's, introduced in "The Depths of Cousin Fethry!",[170] where he serves as a janitor at one of McDuck Enterprises' marine science stations. He is visited by Huey and Dewey, who mistake him for a scientist. However, his years of living around the marine science stations have made him an expert in adapting to underwater life and communicating with sea creatures, and the episode ends with him leaving to become an actual scientist after being reunited with his pet krill, Mitzi; who had been mutated to colossal size due to hydro-thermal vents. In "Moonvasion!", he and Mitzi team up with Gladstone Gander to save Donald, Della, and the kids from the island before taking them back to Duckburg and help Scrooge repel the Moonlander invasion.[58] Fethry later reappears in the comic book story "Saga of the Super-Intern!", published in the 20th issue of IDW's DuckTales, where he is hired as an intern at Gyro's lab.[171]
    Cousin Fethry was originally created as a "beatnik" character in 1964, by comic book creators Dick Kinney and Al Hubbard.[172]
  • Zan Owlson (voiced by Natasha Rothwell) — An alumn of the Mouseton School of Business who became the acting CEO of Glomgold Industries during Glomgold's four-month disappearance,[83] following Magica's attack in "The Shadow War".[29] Unlike Glomgold, she is both honest and a capable businesswoman. After his return, she remains at the company as his closest associate during his year-long competition to de-throne Scrooge as the richest duck in the world; even in spite of his manic, childish behavior.[82][126] In "GlomTales!", she transfers over to McDuck Enterprises when it seems like Scrooge is going to win,[84] but in "The Richest Duck in the World!", she ends up working for Louie after he gets both Scrooge and Glomgold's fortunes at the end of the competition. Following an attack by the Bombie (a monster bent on destroying the world's richest person), she snaps under the pressure and puts in her two weeks' notice; vowing to quit once she trains her replacement and become a better billionaire herself.[104]
    An original DuckTales character, Zan Owlson is named after series producer, Suzanna Olson.[173]
  • José Carioca and Panchito Pistoles (voiced by Bernardo De Paula and Arturo Del Puerto, respectively[174]) – Donald's college friends. Together they formed a band, The Three Caballeros, who used to practice in Scrooge's garage. They first appear in "The Town Where Everyone Was Nice!",[175] where the trio is reunited, and José and Panchito are introduced to the ducklings. Wanting to impress the others, José claims to be a successful travel agent and Panchito fakes being a pop star, although they are eventually revealed to be a flight attendant and birthday party performer, respectively. In "Louie's Eleven!", they attempted to infiltrate a party held by trendsetter Emma Glamour alongside Donald to increase their popularity.[99]
    José and Panchito have appeared in several animated productions alongside Donald, starting in the 1940s feature films Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros. De Paula and Del Puerto improvised several lines involving the characters' native languages in order to provide accurate Brazilian and Mexican depictions.[8][9]
  • Lieutenant Penumbra (voiced by Julie Bowen) — A Moonlander and Lunaris' most trusted officer. She is fiercely protective of the moon and its people. As such, she initially perceived Della as a threat; treating her with distrust and distaste despite her repeated attempts to win Penumbra's friendship.[56] Over time, she begins to warm up to Della and comes to disagree with Lunaris' manipulation of their people into war with Earth.[12] After Della's brother, Donald, ends up on the moon and gets taken prisoner, she secretly frees him so he can help her stop Lunaris by destroying his fleet; in the process discovering that her commanding officer had planned to invade Earth long before Della came. Just as she gives Donald a transmitter to warn Earth, she's subdued by Lunaris and prevented from helping Donald further.[45] Despite what happened, she ultimately manages to send a warning to Della[104] and later assists her and her family in disabling Lunaris' engine.[58]
  • Violet Sabrewing (voiced by Libe Barer) — A book-smart girl who shares Webby's interests in the supernatural and help bring Lena back from the shadow realm, as seen in her debut episode, "Friendship Hates Magic!"[30] After making minor appearances in "Happy Birthday Doofus Drake!",[98] "A Nightmare on Killmotor Hill!"[92] and Moonvasion!",[58] she returns in "Challenge of the Senior Junior Woodchucks!", where she competes with Huey for the title of "Senior Woodchuck". The episode also reveals her parents are a same-sex couple named Indy and Ty Sabrewing.[27][176]
  • Drake Mallard / Darkwing Duck (voiced by Chris Diamantopoulos) — An up-and-coming actor who replaces Jim Starling as Darkwing Duck in McDuck Studios' reboot film. He and Launchpad develop a strong friendship due to their shared love of the Darkwing Duck series. When Starling unsuccessfully attempts to kill him and the production fails, Launchpad convinces him to become a real-life superhero.[163] In "Moonvasion!", he assists Scrooge in staging a rebellion against Lunaris and the Moonlanders' invasion; helping McDuck get to his manor by switching outfits with him since Mallard himself was perceived as unremarkable by the aliens.[58] He is set to return the third season.[157]
    Mallard shares his name with that of Darkwing Duck's civilian identity in the 1990s animated series.
  • B.O.Y.D. (voiced by Nicolas Cantu in "Happy Birthday Doofus Drake"; Noah Baird in "Astro B.O.Y.D.") – A child-like android introduced in "Happy Birthday, Doofus Drake!" as the "Beaks Optimistic Youth Droid". After Beaks found him in a junkyard, he used B.O.Y.D. to increase his social media clout and con Doofus Drake out of millions of dollars before Louie exposed the ruse. After Louie gave the android to Doofus as a little brother, B.O.Y.D. took half of his inheritance money, allowing Doofus' parents to stand up to him.[98] In season three, B.O.Y.D. joined the Junior Woodchucks,[27] befriended Huey, and discovered his past. Originally, he was 2-BO, a child-like defense drone created by Gyro decades ago before his mentor, Dr. Akita, tampered with his programming and made him destroy Tokyolk before abandoning him. Despite B.O.Y.D. falling under Akita's control again in the present, Gyro reconciled with the android and helped him gain control of his programming so he can live life like a normal child; even changing his acronym to "Be Only Yourself, Dude" to reflect this.[150]
  • Daisy Duck (voiced by Tress MacNeille) – A personal assistant to trendsetter Emma Glamour who, much like Donald, is prone to angry outbursts. Debuting in "Louie's Eleven!", she attempts to ensure Glamour's party runs smoothly, only to get trapped in an elevator with Donald while he was helping his band, the Three Caballeros, perform at the party. They end up developing a mutual attraction for one another and work together to escape and defeat a band of criminals that also infiltrated the party.[99]
    Daisy Duck is Donald's longtime girlfriend in various Disney media, first introduced in the 1940 animated short Mr. Duck Steps Out; with her DuckTales design taking inspiration from her appearance in Donald's Diary. While she was absent from the original DuckTales series, the 2017 series' incarnation is notable in that she and Donald meet for the first time and eventually enter a relationship.[157][177] The character was originally set to appear in "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks" as Glomgold's assistant and Donald's ex-girlfriend, but the idea was scrapped due to both story purposes and perceived similarities with Donald and Scrooge's background.[178][179][180] She was also considered to appear in an earlier draft for the season two premiere, with her characterization based on her Quack Pack incarnation, but the idea was dropped when the episode's storyline changed.[181]

  • Chip 'n' Dale and the Rescue Rangers (all voiced by Jeff Bennett) – A group of formerly ordinary chipmunks, mice and a housefly that Black Heron tested an intelligence ray on, making them anthropomorphic and more intelligent. After breaking out from their confines, they helped Launchpad and Dewey escape as well and assisted them in their fight against Steelbeak.[105]
    Like Donald and Goofy, Chip 'n' Dale are classic Disney characters, who are usually depicted as enemies of the former's. Their prototypes debuted in the 1943 short Private Pluto before they made their official debut in the 1947 short Chip an' Dale. The Rescue Rangers (consisting of Chip, Dale, Monterey Jack, Gadget Hackwrench, and Zipper) first debuted on the 1989 TV series Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers.
