Scrooge is a talented and passionate adventurer, treasure hunter, and buisness owner, having earned his immense fortune through hard work. Due to this, he is very stingy with his money and cares for it deeply. Although he appears grouchy and selfish, he is actually a kind person who values honesty and fair play. The one thing he loves more than money is his family. Despite his age, Scrooge is usually able to keep up with his nephews antics and adventures without slowing down.
In the episode House of Scrooge, Scrooge buys the House of Mouse from Pete. At first, Mickey is overjoyed with the fact that Pete is gone, but is then dismayed when Scrooge creates drastic changes in the club and makes extreme budget cuts. Once he realizes that the changes have driven away the customers, he takes back his money and gives Pete the House of Mouse back.
