The Richest Duck in the World or The Recluse of McDuck Manor is a Scrooge McDuck comic written by Don Rosa. It is the twelfth of the original 12 chapters in the series The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. The story takes place on Christmas Day of 1947.


Donald and Huey, Dewey, and Louie pay Scrooge a visit in his mansion after their stay on Bear Mountain (as seen in Carl Barks' "Christmas on Bear Mountain"). Provocated by Donald, Scrooge takes his nephews to his Money Bin to show them his fortune. Unfortunately they are followed by the Beagle Boys - led by Blackheart Beagle, all disguised as Santa Claus. After chasing and defeating eight members of the Beagle Boys, Scrooge decides to reopen his financial empire.


  • It is one of the very few occasions in which Scrooge is seen wearing Toon Gloves.
