Launchpad McQuack is one of the main character of DuckTales. He is the pilot and chauffeur of Scrooge McDuck.


Launchpad is a white duck. He is about five feet tall with a hefty build. He wears a hat, a leather jacket, a green shirt, an orange tie, baggy pants, boots designed for big, webbed feet, and a belt. 


Launchpad is a gentle giant, and also very charming and witty. Additionally, Launchpad remains calm and positive in extreme and intense scenarios, never panicking or losing his cool. In fact, the only thing that comes close to scaring Launchpad is Scrooge's temper tantrums.

Launchpad can drive cars, aeroplanes, submarines, etc. in spite of having never taken a flying lesson and only recently having got his driver's licence. Albeit, it inevitably always ends in him crashing, at least partially by design. Crashing may not sound like an ability at first glance, but it and Launchpad's guts have got Scrooge and his family out of multiple scrapes.


Dewey Duck

'My best friend Dewey's in trouble! I can feel it.' — Launchpad McQuack

Out of the triplets, Dewey is the closest to Launchpad — in fact, Launchpad considers Dewey as his best friend. Launchpad has introduced Dewey to Launchpad's favourite TV show, Darkwing Duck. When Dewey got eaten by Tiffany the money shark, Launchpad woke up in the middle of the night because he sensed his best friend was in danger and took Donald's Houseboat to the Money Bin to rescue Dewey.
