New side platform! Out of Context Ducks over on Twitter, for postings of exactly what it sounds like. Duck images taken out of context. Images there will be from here 95% of the time so if you don’t have both don’t worry, this is just a fun little extra thing for any Twitter users who might like to follow~
Oh wow! a veteran Uncle Scrooge fan and do you prefer original Ducktales with Alan Young or the new one with David Tennant? I've been an Alan Young girl since I was kid.There's that grandfatherly classiness in the way Young does Scrooge which is why I like him and I found out about Scrooge from watching Twice Upon a Christmas on DVD with my cousins and started having a fascination with his aristocratic snobbishness and fierce temper (like Donald).I loved him since and I have wishes of wealth.
Alan Young will always be my Scrooge. Like, there’s something enjoyable about the way any of Scrooge’s VAs have done him– Bill Thompson (”Scrooge McDuck and Money”) and the charming rhymes; Will Ryan (”Sport Goofy in Soccermania”) and his spirit and the immortal “A͘N̸D͟ ͠WI͠N BĄCK ḾY͠ ̀TRO̵PH̛YY̧Y̧YY̢Y̶Y
“ ; Tennant and his…. Scottishness and everything else –but Young has exactly what you said. A grandfatherliness to him that still has potential for that McDuck temper and stinginess. He’s the Scrooge I grew up with, and nobody’ll ever top him in my own personal book, even with as good a Scrooge as Tennant is (and he’s a GREAT Scrooge, don’t get me wrong).
Hey,what do you like about Scrooge McDuck? And how did you find out about him? I found about him as a kid and loved him since.
To answer the second question first, I first found out about him when I was small. My dad had a box of old comic books and in there were, among other series that I’d read, were some old Uncle $crooges. I would read them all the time, apparently even learning TO read on some of them (which I’ve talked about before~ ). I was also little when the first DuckTales came out, so there was that too!
As for what I like about him, is everything a good enough answer? He’s such a well-rounded character (not to say that the other Ducks aren’t, of course), and you can do endless things with him. I enjoy comic and animated versions equally; the comic Scrooge is bitter but good-natured, is absolutely RIDICULOUS in the schemes he tries to pull off (keyword: tries), and you never really know what he’s going to do next but at the same time he’s endlessly predictable. It’s a great blend. And as for the animated Scrooge, he’s got this Everybody’s Grandfather/Uncle attitude that can be a great thing to come home to at the end of a long day (read: my best cheer-up for when I’m low is putting on the original DuckTales), but so too does he have his jerk moments, his bitter attitude, his “/SPINNING DOLLAR SIGN EYES” stuff that’s so great about Scrooge in general.
I just love Scrooge, good and bad sides. He’s been with me, in its own way, since I was a tiny little thing, and I wouldn’t want a time without that.

Tagged for photo and phone screen thingie by @sarroora so here you go. My lock screen can’t be customized so it’s the same as my wallpaper. Featuring tiny little Christmas tree, robe (baby it’s cold outside?) and slightly frizzy post-shower hair for the selfie, which I almost didn’t post but I need to feel better about my face >_>
