Eggburt, nicknamed “Eggy” is a young anthropomorphic gander.
By 1964, Eggburt had been Scrooge McDuck's office years for at least two years, and had, as such, enjoyed Scrooge's usual Christmas bonus of $100 several times. That Christmas, however, he was told by Scrooge that he would cease giving his employees that bonus; Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck found him crying about it. However, it later turned out to be a miscommunication, as Scrooge had simply decided to give his employees diamonds instead of cash.
Behind the scenes
Although treated as if he were a well-established member of the everyday cast by the narrative, Eggburt only ever appeared in the 1965 story Christmas Album.
