Bentina Beakley is Scrooge McDuck's housekeeper and Huey, Dewey and Louie's nanny on DuckTales, and the legal guardian of her granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack. She first appeared in "Three Ducks of the Condor".



Bentina Beakley acts like a typical grandmother who has a lot on her plate. While warm and caring, she can be overwhelmed by Scrooge McDuck's lifestyle. She can also be easily taken advantage of by Huey, Dewey, and Louie and at times has been shown to be easily frightened. However, she is also willing to roll up her sleeves and get to work whenever there is no one else to take charge. She can have a short temper but easily reverts back to Webby's caring grandmother.

Much of her characteristics were combined with those of Duckworth.

Physical appearance

Beakley is rotund in appearance and wears a purple dress with light purple frills. She wears matching purple high heeled shoes and a white apron over her dress. Her grey hair is done up in curls and a bun and she wears small spectacles over her beak.



Bentina is hired by Scrooge McDuck to be his maid, his nephews' nanny, and mother figure, and as a housemaid and cook, asking only for room and board in Scrooge's mansion – an offer Scrooge could not refuse.

She also has a granddaughter named Webbigail and is often seen cooking, cleaning, or scolding the boys and trying to keep them from misbehaving, though deeply she cares for them very much.

She was a nanny of Prince Greydrake until Prince Greydrake's plane crash-landed in the jungle of Africa 20 years ago. This happened after his evil uncle sent him on a plane ride to rid himself of his nephew. Greydrake becomes king at the coronation for his 25th birthday in the episode "Jungle Duck".
