Scrooge McDuck or Uncle Scrooge is a Scottish duck created by Carl Barks that first appeared in Four Color Comics #178, Christmas on Bear Mountain. Over the decades, Scrooge has emerged from being a mere supporting character in the Disney cast of characters to a major figure. In 1952, he was given this comic book series. As the character's popularity rose, he appeared in various TV specials, films, and video games. Scrooge, along with several other characters of Duckburg, has enjoyed international popularity, particularly in Europe, and books about him are frequently translated into other languages. Scrooge McDuck is named after the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, the main character from Charles Dickens' novel A Christmas Carol.
The first three issues are named Four Color Comics #386, 456, and 495. The first issue named Uncle Scrooge is #4.
