Who is Duckworth?

In the 1980s DuckTales, Duckworth was well-known for being Scrooge McDuck’s no nonsense butler and chauffeur. Duckworth was one of Scrooge’s hardest working employees and was the sole caretaker of the mansion before Mrs. Beakley was hired to help with the nephews.

Duckworth has yet to appear in an episode of DuckTales 2017… however Frank Angones has insisted that the show has already debuted it’s version of the fan-favorite character. To date, fans still can’t find him…


One of the greatest mysteries of DuckTales 2017 was; “Where is Duckworth?” We would probably assume that he isn’t in the show but Co-Producer Frank Angones insists not only that Duckworth will be in the show, but that he has already been in animation!

*Update* “McMystery at McDuck McManor!” revealed that Duckworth had passed away. In the episode Blackart Beagle conjured-up the spirit of Duckworth by mistake.


Duckworth’s ghostly appearance can be found in the opening credits to DuckTales 2017. His first episode appearance was “McMystery at McDuck McManor!”

“McMyster at McDuck McManor!”

Disney XD posted a video of a scene from a future episode of DuckTales. We will not go into details of the scene because they pulled it (we don’t want to ruin anything), but we can confirm that either a reflection or painting/picture of Duckworth was in the animation. In the short seconds that we see the image there appears to be a frame around him and he doesn’t move. This leads us to two possible conclusions.

  1. This is a painting/picture of Scrooge McDuck’s butler dusting a painting/picture of Scrooge McDuck.
  2. This is a mirror that is breaking the fourth wall and showing us a glimpse of the camera shy butler. However, he realized his reflection was in the “shot” and he froze…

What do we know about Duckworth!?


  1. He now appeared on episode mistery at duck manor in 2017 so maybe you can update this to say that, and why people say he been on when his frist appince is that episode


    • You got me. Haha. I’ve had a lot going on, and I’m trying to get caught up on some things for the site. The character spotlights haven’t even been on my radar yet. I also need to update the Della one. Thanks for the reminder!

      Oh, and the skull/ghost is in the opening credits. I think that’s why people are saying he debuted earlier.
