Silas McDuck is a minor DuckTales 1987 character, appearing in the episode "The Curse of Castle McDuck".


The story of Silas McDuck is retold for Huey, Dewey and Louie:

Silas was a member of Clan McDuck and Scrooge's great-great-grandfather. He was very wealthy and built Castle McDuck for his large family to live in.

Despite the ground being cursed by druids, Silas finished the constructions and the McDucks moved in, only to be scared away by the frightening Hound of Castle McDuck. Spending what little he had left from erecting the castle, Silas built Cottage McDuck, where the family lived in poverty until Scrooge left for America.
