McDuck Manor, as the name implies, is the mansion home of Scrooge McDuck. According to various comics about him, he lives in an area above his Money Bin. But in other media, such as different comics, children's storybooks, and the television series DuckTales, he lives in a large mansion, and the Money Bin is located next to the mansion.
Scrooge's mansion has appeared in various media, including animation, mainly in DuckTales. The Scottish Manor used in the Ducktales series and subsequent comics was designed by long time Disney Art Director Michael Peraza Jr. and was an immediate hit with fans. When he showed his sketches for the proposed design to Carl Barks over a dinner meeting, Carl approved and admitted, "I wish I had thought of that!"
Scrooge, along with his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Webby Vanderquack, Bentina Beakley, Duckworth, and later, Bubba the Cave Duck and his pet triceratops, Tootsie, live in there together. The mansion gets more than its share of damage, due to the fact that some of the adventures even take place in or around it. Scrooge moving from his Money Bin to the Mansion for the duration of the series has been explained to be that the Money Bin wouldn't be a good place to raise kids.
In the film's segment, Christmas Impossible, Scrooge hosts a Christmas dinner at his mansion.
McDuck Manor is once again the prominent setting for the Duck family in the reboot. In the pilot episode/movie "Woo-oo!," Donald Duck and his nephews move into the mansion after Donald's house boat explodes, although Donald has it moved into the mansion's pool anyway. The mansion's garage is also shown to possess many treasures and mystical artifacts collected by Scrooge over the years.
McDuck Manor (under the name of McDuck Mansion) first appears alongside Scrooge himself in 1947 in Christmas on Bear Mountain by Carl Barks. Scrooge is first seen sitting in an armchair in his mansion's heavily decorated living room, looking through a window. Scrooge is seen again living in his mansion at the beginning of Hoodoo Voodoo, again by Carl Barks. A considerably less luxuriously furnished version of McDuck Mansion was seen again in Paul Murry's The Firebugs, Scrooge's first official appearance outside of Barks' stories, and the Mansion was prominently featured in Bob Moore's Trail Blazer, which came out around the same time as The Firebugs.
Even after Carl Barks created the Money Bin on top of Killmotor Hill (1951), he portrayed Scrooge as living in a mansion. In Barks' 1955 one-pager Easy Mowing (Uncle Scrooge #9), we can see Scrooge's mansion from the outside, surrounded by a gigantic garden and a dollar-signed iron fence.
