- “Right here, Mr. McDuck. I'm Bentina Beakley.”
- ―Bentina Beakley
Bentina Beakley, usually referred to as Mrs. Beakley, is a big-boned anthropomorphic duck and a recurring character in Disney's DuckTales.
Role in the series
Bentina is hired by Scrooge McDuck to be his maid, his nephews' nanny and mother figure, and as a housemaid and cook, asking only for room and board in Scrooge's mansion – an offer Scrooge could not refuse.
She also has a granddaughter named Webby and is often seen cooking, cleaning or scolding the boys and trying to keep them from misbehaving, though deeply she cares for them very much.
She was a nanny of Prince Greydrake until Prince Greydrake's plane crash landed in the jungle of Africa 20 years ago. This happened after his evil uncle sent him on a plane ride to rid himself of his nephew. Greydrake becomes king at the coronation for his 25th birthday in the episode "Jungle Duck".
Ducktales (2017 series)
Bentina Beakley makes a reappearance in the reboot series as a major character. Unlike her orginal incarnation, Mrs. Beakley is portrayed as a stern house-keeper who lives the mansion with her granddaughter, Webby. It was she who told Scrooge McDuck to spend more time with his family when they first met Huey, Dewey, and Louie. She was protective over Webby but allows her to go on adventures with Scrooge, Donald, Launchpad, and the nephews. She also helps Scrooge and the team on some of their adventures.
