Biography

Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck are a trio of fictional ducks who appear in animated cartoons and comic books published by the Walt Disney Company. Identical triplets, the three are Donald Duck',s nephews. Huey, Dewey, and Louie were created by Ted Osborne and Al Taliaferro, and first appeared in a newspaper comic strip on October 17, 1937. Their first animated appearance was in the theatrical short Donald',s Nephews, released April 15, 1938.

Huey, Dewey, and Louie are the sons of Donald',s sister, in Donald',s Nephews, Donald',s sister is named "Dumbella," but in the comics, her full name is Della Thelma Duck. ("Dumbella" is obviously not a real name but a nickname, even though it is one she even inflicts on herself due to her low self-esteem.) In the original theatrical shorts, they were originally sent to visit Donald for only one day, in the comics, the three were sent to stay with Donald on a temporary basis, until their father came back from the hospital (the boys ended up sending him there after a practical joke of putting firecrackers under his chair). In both the comics and animated shorts, the boys', parents were never heard from or referred to again after these instances, with the boys ending up permanently living with Donald, in keeping with Disney',s usual elimination of characters', parents. All four of them live in the fictional city of Duckburg, in the fictional state of Calisota.

The boys are noted for having both identical appearances and personalities in most appearances, with the three sometimes shown as finishing each others', sentences as a running joke. In the theatrical shorts, Huey, Dewey, and Louie would often behave in a rambunctious manner, sometimes committing retaliation or revenge on their uncle Donald for something he did to them. In the comics, however, as developed by Al Taliaferro and Carl Barks, the boys usually are shown in a more well-behaved manner, usually helping their uncle Donald and great-uncle Scrooge McDuck in the adventure at hand. In the early Barks comics, the ducklings were still wild and unruly, but their character improved considerably due to their membership in the Junior Woodchucks and the good influence of their wise old great-grandmother Elvira Coot "Grandma" Duck.

Huey, Dewey, and Louie can usually be told apart by the color of their hats and/or clothing: Huey dresses in red (although he used to wear orange), Dewey in blue (although he occasionally wore yellow), and Louie in green (although at one point he wore blue). Disney',s archivist Dave Smith, in "Disney A to Z," said, "Note that the brightest hue of the three is red (Huey), the color of water, dew, is blue (Dewey), and that leaves Louie, and leaves are green."
