Scrooge McDuck was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1867 to a poor family and was the oldest of three siblings. At the age of 10, Scrooge became a shoe polisher to earn more money for his family but his first client scammed him by paying with an American dime, unusable in Scotland. Nevertheless, Scrooge keeps the dime and, recognizing it as the start of something big, moves to the U.S. at age 13 to work as a river-boater with his uncle.
But when his uncle dies two years later, a gang of outlaws known as the Beagle Boys destroyed his steamboat and left him jobless. After a short career as a cowboy, Scrooge becomes a miner and decides to participate in the Klondike Gold Rush, which is when he explored White Agony Creek. Despite hearing tales of the creek being protected by a giant monster, Scrooge ventures into it and discovers that the "giant monster" was simply the preserved corpse of a mammoth. He enters the creek and finds the legendary Goose Egg Nugget, an artifact that makes him rich.
After several run-ins with adversaries who attempted to steal his fortune, Scrooge continues mining and making deals, decisions that eventually made him a billionaire.Over 15 years later though, he ends up lonely and invites Donald Duck (along with his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie) over for Christmas where he tells them his life story. Once he finishes, the new generation of Beagle Boys attack Scrooge but he fights off and defeats them. Afterwards, Scrooge becomes an adventurer once again (this time with his nephews) and continued to get richer.
