Table of Contents Summary A mean-spirited, miserly old man named Ebenezer Scrooge sits in his counting-house on a frigid Christmas Eve. His clerk, Bob Cratchit, shivers in the anteroom because Scrooge refuses to spend money on heating coals for a fire. Scrooge's nephew, Fred, pays his uncle a visit and invites him to his annual Christmas party.
Over the decades, Scrooge has grown from being a supporting character in comic books to one of the most popular and recognizable Disney characters. And I like to dive around in my money like a porpoise! And burrow through it like a gopher! And toss it up and let it hit me on the head!
He is an adventurer and opportunist, having trotted some of the most exotic corners of the world in search of treasure and wealth.
He has a great love for money, gold and other valuable treasure, and experiences great distress when his money is in danger, and goes to great lengths to spend as little money as possible and protect his beloved fortune from getting stolen or otherwise harmed.
In putting so much time and dedication into increasing his wealth, Scrooge has become somewhat of a lone cheapskate over the years. Cold and nearly unforgiving, he is deathly protective of his fortune, and seldom spends any more of it than he has to.
Scrooge has a volatile temper and rarely hesitates to use cartoon violence against those who provoke his ire often his nephew Donald, but also bill and tax collectors as well as door-to-door salesmen. As such, he is extremely mistrustful of anyone trying to enter his office in his Money Bin; a common running gag is that he welcomes visitors with a cannon and a lit matchstick, ready to fire if whoever is at the door is not welcome.
Upon activation, the door opens and the baffled intruder falls into it, passes through all the floors via an ejection chute, and usually lands in a trash can outside the building. For a long period of time after gaining his extensive wealth, Scrooge practically lived alone and had little contact with his family.
This would partially play into his bitterness, though things would slowly change as he opened himself up to his nephews DonaldHuey, Dewey, and Louie. Scrooge would grow increasingly more compassionate as he spent more time with his nephews, going as far as to regularly invite them on his international treasure hunts as partners and loyal sidekicks.
Like Donald, Scrooge is still greedy and hot-tempered at times. A majority of his employees and business associates still consider him an imposing figure even, but he is essentially good-hearted and well-meaning. He values honesty and fair play, firmly believing that great fortune should be squarely earned.
Furthermore, while he can be undoubtedly selfish at times, Scrooge will never leave behind someone in urgent need and has even rescued some of his most formidable foes from certain death. With age, Scrooge became wise and knowledgeable, and regularly puts this wisdom to good use when raising his nephews, specifically Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and has shown pride in their eagerness to learn the value of a dollar.
Wealth Scrooge has worked his way up the financial ladder from humble immigrant roots. Spending his youth in Glasgow, Scotlandhe made a living shining boot. Getting paid with the worthless American coin after his hard work, Scrooge decided to "be smarter than the smarties and tougher than the toughies, and make [his money] square".
The dime also inspired him to seek his fortune in America. Scrooge is now the richest duck in the world, rivaled only by Flintheart GlomgoldJohn D. Rockerduckand, less prominently, the maharaja of the fictional country Howdoyoustan play on Hindustan.
