- For the home of Scrooge's namesake, see Ebenezer Scrooge's mansion.
McDuck Manor, as the name implies, is the mansion home of Scrooge McDuck. According to various comics about him, he lives in an area above his Money Bin. But in other media, such as different comics, children's books, and the television series DuckTales he lives in a large mansion.
McDuck Manor (under the name of McDuck Mansion) first appears alongside Scrooge himself in 1947 in Christmas on Bear Mountain by Carl Barks. Scrooge is first seen sitting in an armchair in his mansion's heavily decorated living room, looking through a window. Scrooge is seen again living in his mansion at the beginning of Hoodoo Voodoo by Carl Barks again. A considerably less luxuously furnished version of McDuck Mansion was seen again in Paul Murry'sThe Firebugs, Scrooge's first official appearance outside of Barks's stories, and the Mansion was be prominently featured in Bob Moore's Trail Blazer, which came out at the same time as The Firebugs.
In 1951 however, Carl Barks created the Money Bin on top of Killmotor Hill as Scrooge's new residence, which most writers used ever since. When Keno Don Rosa wrote The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, he decided to give a logical explanation for Scrooge leaving the mansion for his money bin at the end of the 40's; he shows in the series' twelfth installment, which is the beginning of Scrooge's modern-day adventures, Scrooge deciding to go back to business, and his first decision is to get rid of this ridiculous mansion he never liked in the first place, to go back to his money bin.
Scrooge's mansion has appeared in various media, including animation, mainly in DuckTales. Scrooge, along with his nephews, Webby, Betina Beakley, and Duckworth live in together it. The mansion gets more than its share of damage, due to the fact that some of the adventures even take place in or around it. Scrooge moving from his money bin to the Mansion for the duration of the series has been explained to be that the money bin wouldn't be a good place to raise kids such as Huey, Dewey and Louie.
In the film's segment, Christmas Impossible, Scrooge hosts a Christmas dinner at his mansion.
