Ebenezer Scrooge

Donald Duck as Ebenezer

"Oh! but he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner!" (3).

"Out upon merry Christmas! What's Christmas-time to you but a time for paying bills without money; a time for finding yourself a year older, and not an hour richer..." (5,6).

"Seeing clearly that it would be useless to pursue their point, the gentlemen withdrew. Scrooge resumed his labors with an improved opinion of himself, and in a more facetious temper than was usual with him." (10).

From these quotes you can assume that when Scrooge was a small, little boy he had some problems with relationships and past Christmas times. You can actually see, from these quotes, that Ebenezer is a bad man. When I say bad, I mean that Ebenezer Scrooge despises people and is an unpopular, sinful man. Obviously, from the second quote, you can see that Scrooge only cares about money.
