Actor David Tennant stopped by Disneyland park recently to visit with Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire, Scrooge McDuck, who happened to be making a special visit to the Bank of Toontown. Visiting the Disneyland Resort with his family, David was most looking forward to riding the new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure park.

When asked what he liked most about Scrooge McDuck, David said, “He’s got a hidden life. You think he’s a crotchety old windbag, when he’s actually Indiana Jones with a beak!”

You can hear David in the new animated comedy adventure series “DuckTales,” premiering August 12 on Disney XD. Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, “DuckTales” celebrates the importance of family and friendship, with comedy, mystery and adventure at every turn. Life is like a hurricane in Duckburg, so don’t miss an episode!


  • Is there anywhere in Disneyworld where my son could see any of the characters besides Donald? He loves Ducktales. Thanks,

  • Hah, he went to school with one of my friends – although he wasn’t “Tennant” then. It’s a Small World After All…

  • So, can we call David “The Ducktor”??

  • Omg…I think I would have fainted if I saw him there. Disneyland and my personal favorite Doctor Who. It would been just too much to handle. Looking forward to hearing his voice as Scrooge

  • Disney always manages to bring exceptional talent to their productions. David Tennant is a favorite not just for being the 10th Doctor but other projects as well such as Broadchurch and The Escape Artist and many more. Looking forward to watching Duck Tales with the grandkids!

  • I hope park guests can meet Scrooge on a daily basis, now, too!

    • Gregory, Daniel and Christopher – I’m sorry, but Scrooge McDuck was making a special appearance and is not available to meet with guests regularly. He’s a busy duck!

  • What would be really great is if regular park guest could meet Scrooge, especially he does have his new series coming and all…

  • Will scrooge be making more disneyland appearances?

  • That is so awesome. I’m looking forward to the new DuckTales.

  • So when can we have a David Tennant meet and great in WDW? He counts as a Disney character now, right? Please?

  • I felt something. As if a million fangirls cried out…

  • I have greatly enjoyed the preview clips Disney XD has shared in the run-up to the premiere, and David Tennant as Scrooge is one reason why. I loved him in “Doctor Who” and a number of his Shakespeare performances, and he is a fantastic Scrooge. Actually so far I love everything about the new DuckTales – the writing, the cast… bring on August 12!
