Scrooge McDuck / Uncle Scrooge

There have been several attempts to animate Scrooge McDuck:

In 1955, Barks contributed an idea for a cartoon, which was abandoned.
In the 1950s, Scrooge appears in the titles for the Mickey Mouse Club on television, but only for a few seconds, popping out of the Big Bad Wolf's hat.
In 1967, Scrooge has his first appearance in a theatrical film, in «Scrooge McDuck and Money».
In 1983, Scrooge has his second appearance in a theatrical film, in «Mickey's Christmas Carol»
In 1987, Scrooge appears in twenty-minute feature «Sport Goofy in Soccermania». Scrooge's office and money bin are shown, complete with a sign proclaiming "Scrooge McDuck: World's Richest Duck and Darn Well Going to Stay That Way!" Intended at first as a theatrical film, «Soccermania» was released on NBC television as part of an anthology program starring Goofy. The segment aired on May 27, 1987.
In September 1987, DuckTales is launched, a half-hour animated television series featuring Scrooge. Some of the episodes are based on Barks comic book stories.
In 1990, Scrooge has his third appearance in a theatrical film, in «DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp».
