Scrooge McDuck Wikia

The Ghost of Christmas Present, or simply Christmas Present, is a spirit taking the form of an anthropomorphic pig, and ostensibly the Ghost of Christmas Present's counterpart in the 2017 Continuum, with some similarities to Willie the Giant.


None too smart-looking, this version of the Ghost of Christmas Present is as cheerful bon viveur and something of a womanizer, who takes "living in the present" to its full potential. Alongside Past and Future, Present fulfills his yearly duties of bringing back the Christmas spirit to old grumps, with his part being to underline the fun to be had in enjoying the instant and living life to the fullest.

Like the others, growing increasingly frustrated at having no other permanent friends than the other two spirits and no time to relax, he began to cut loose every year with Scrooge McDuck, using Past's Time-Brella to visit history's greatest Christmas parties.

Behind the scenes

This version of the Ghost of Christmas Present appears in the Christmas Special of Season 2 of DuckTales 2017, Last Christmas.

He is heavily inspired by the portrayal of Willie the Giant as the Ghost of Christmas Present in Mickey's Christmas Carol. However, it was decided by the writers to make him into a separate (albeit similar-looking) character rather than the 2017 Continuum counterpart to Willie in earnest, as they were reluctant to include any fully human characters in the cast.
