Glittering Goldie (full name given as Goldie O'Gilt) is Scrooge McDuck's old flame from his Gold Rush days.

Comics

Carl Barks

Uncle Scrooge-325-61

Scrooge and Goldie meet again in Back to the Klondike (first published in 1953).

Originally created by Carl Barks as a character in the comic Back to the Klondike, Goldie was shown to be a music hall singer in Dawson. In a flashback sequence, Scrooge catches Goldie in an attempt to rob him of his recent gold poke and forces her to repay the debt by helping him work at his claim at White Agony Creek. Some 50 years later, they meet again and it is revealed that Goldie is now poor and living alone at Scrooge's former claim in the Yukon. Scrooge travels there to collect an old debt and turns it into a bet for who can dig more gold. Goldie digs into an area where Scrooge's old gold stash was, so she wins. Scrooge claims to have lost because he forgot the stash due to recent memory problems, but Donald, who knows Uncle Scrooge had just taken his memory medication, deduces that Scrooge lost on purpose.

Carl Barks drew inspiration for Glittering Goldie's character from Kathleen Rockwell (a.k.a. "Klondike Kate").

Other Artists

Scrooge and Goldie in The Miner's Granddaughter.

Barks only used the character once, but Goldie and her relationship with Scrooge were later picked up and expanded upon by other creators. One of these was master Disney artist Romano Scarpa, who wrote and drew Goldie's second comic appearance, The Miner's Granddaughter (Uncle Scrooge #423), where Goldie leaves her granddaughter Dickie Duck in Scrooge's care and meets Brigitta MacBridge for the first time.

Don Rosa also used her in several stories, including his The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck series and his comic Last Sled to Dawson (Uncle Scrooge Adventures #5). Here, it is implied that Scrooge and Goldie fell in love with each other, but never revealed their feelings of affection to one another and eventually drifted apart as Scrooge traveled across the world and acquired his fortune while Goldie remained in Dawson. In Last Sled to Dawson, Goldie owns a hotel in Dawson.

Appearances

DuckTales

Duckymtn-date3

Present-day Goldie in "Ducky Mountain High".

Goldie made her animated debut in the DuckTales episode "Back to the Klondike". This episode is an adaptation of the Carl Barks comic of the same name. In this story, after she swindles Scrooge of his gold nugget, he threatens to call the authorities if she doesn't pay him back. Rather then getting into trouble, she reluctantly agrees to work to pay back the nugget. While working together the two of them fall in love.

She later appeared in the series' episodes "Scroogerello", "Till Nephews Do Us Part" (where she emerges from the wedding cake to punish Scrooge for trying to marry another woman), and "Ducky Mountain High". In "Scrooge's Pet", Scrooge installs a new lock for his vault and is seen putting the note with the combination in a locket and placing the locket on a statuette of Goldie. She could also be seen on a portrait in Scrooge's home in the episode "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. McDuck". 

DuckTales (2017 series)

Goldie will appear in the 2017 reboot series, voiced by Allison Janney.[1]
