Sir Quackly McDuck is a character from the Donald Duck comics. He is Scrooge McDuck's Scottish ancestor and was first mentioned in the story The Old Castle's Secret, by Carl Barks. Here, Scrooge and his nephews go on a hunt for Quackly's presumed treasure, with which he accidentally trapped himself inside the walls while trying to protect it. Sir Quackly became a legend among the McDucks, who claimed that his ghost protected the treasure and the castle. The story's villain Diamond Dick disguises himself as Quackly's ghost to scare Scrooge McDuck away. In the end, however, Sir Quackly's remains and the treasure chest are found by Scrooge and his nephews.

Quackly later appeared in Don Rosa's Donald Duck family tree poster. He also appears as a ghost in The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. He made a cameo appearance in The Haunted Houses, (Walt Disney's Comics and Stories 661) dancing among ghosts from other previous Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse comics.
