The Billionaire of Dismal Downs is a Scrooge McDuck comic by Don Rosa. It is the ninth of the original 12 chapters in the series The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. The story takes place from 1898 to 1902.


Having struck it rich in the Klondike Gold Rush (see chapter 8, King of the Klondike), Scrooge goes home to Scotland, but after realizing that he doesn't fit in very well there any more, he hires Scottie McTerrier to look after the McDuck castle for him, while he and his sisters leave for a small, unseeming town Scrooge has recently bought from its founder's grandson while a sourdough in Alaska: Duckburg, Calisota, U.S.A. The morning they leave, their father Fergus dies, joining his late wife and the rest of the Clan McDuck.
