Dickie Duck is the teenage granddaughter of Glittering Goldie, who was left in the care of Scrooge McDuck. She was created by Romano Scarpa

There are some Brazilian Disney comics with her as the protagonist, where she's part of a group of teenagers composed of Beckett (the Aracuan Bird as a quirky teenager) and original characters Neptunia, Olympia and Walter. Despite these spin-off stories taking place in Duckburg, they do not include appearances of other character from the Donald Duck-themed comic books or animation. 

Despite the character's success in Brazil, she stopped being used by Italian authors who considered her too tied to a '60s teenager social context that does not exist anymore. To keep using the character, she was still used in some Donald Duck-themed takes on classic literature. Recently, Dickie has resurfaced in Italian Disney comics as a reporter, occasionally seen working for the County Conscience, Scrooge's younger brother Gideon McDuck's newspaper.
