Question 563 c: It's always nice to have funds that you can dip into



This Scottish tycoon made his way up from practically nothing. He started out polishing shoes and then moved to the United States in hope of making it big...
...and he did.
Quite a feather in his cap.
With an astute sense of business, he's always looking to out do himself.


He was 6th on the list in 2005
He moved up to 3rd in 2006
He reached the number one spot in 2007
Was pushed to 2nd in 2008
and remained there in 2010


Who?
What list?.



Answer:

Scrooge McDuck


Forbes Fictional 15 - The Forbes Fictional 15 is a list generated by Forbes magazine that lists the 15 richest people in the realm of fiction. The members are characters from movies, books, cartoons and television.

Have a look










Aw, look how happy he is

Scrooge McDuck, of ducktales fame

PArsimonious person

& your connect is characters named after people
Scrooge after Scrooge from Xmas Carol
Yogi bear after Yogi BErra


Also, your red herring is Wile E Coyote: supposed to be just Wl E Coyote (Wily)

Didn't you guys already do an eponyms based theme?
