Huey, Dewey, and Louie are the triple nephews of Donald Duck, and grandnephews of Scrooge McDuck. While they do get into more than their share of mischievous they really are good boys, who love their family.
Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck appear in animated cartoons and comic books published by the Walt Disney Company. They 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 were the idea of Al Taliaferro, the artist for the Silly Symphonies comic strip, which featured Donald Duck. The Walt Disney Productions Story Dept. on February 5, 1937, sent Taliaferro a memo recognizing him as the source of the idea for the planned short, Donald's Nephews. The nephews debuted in Taliaferro's comic strip, which by this time had been renamed Donald Duck, on Sunday, October 17, 1937, beating the theatrical release of Donald's Nephews by almost six months. The names were devised by Disney gag man Dana Coty, who took them from Huey Long, Thomas Dewey, and Louis Schmitt, an animator at the Disney Studio in the 1930s and 1940s. Taliaferro's introduction of the nephews emulated the three nephews in the Happy Hooligan comic strip and was also influenced by Mickey Mouse's nephews, Morty and Ferdie Fieldmouse.
The three ducklings are noted for their identical appearances and personalities. A running joke involves the three sometimes even finishing each other's sentences. In the theatrical shorts, Huey, Dewey, and Louie often behave in a rambunctious and mischievous manner, and they sometimes commit retaliation or revenge on their uncle Donald Duck. Despite their mischievous behavior they are very good-hearted and try to assist their uncles, Donald and Scrooge, with the tasks at hand.
While they’re generally shown as having the same personality, there are occasions where they have individual ones. The most notable examples of them having unique personalities are “Quack Pack” and the “DuckTales” reboot.
