   Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck


Born ca. 1940 as triplets. Sons of Della Duck, Donald's twin sister and her husband who is still unknown - however, Don Rosa says that he is a brother of Daisy Duck and that's why HD&L keep calling her their aunt.

HD&L moved in with their uncle Donald Duck before the Christmas of 1947. Rumour say that the reason for this was that they used to be very difficult to raise and that they were sent to Duckburg after blowing a firecracker under their father's chair.

Ca. 1951 HD&L joined The Junior Woodchucks. They were accepted as full members after tracking the remainders of the old Fort Duckburg in one of Uncle Scrooge's factories where it was stored to be ground into sawdust. First Uncle Scrooge refused to donate the remainders of Fort Duckburg to the JW, but he changed his mind when his employees threatened to quit their jobs if he decided to proceed with the destruction of the remainders of the fort. Afterwards the fort was rebuilt in the Black forest nearby Duckburg.

Later HD&L often helped their uncles through all kinds of trouble with their JW Guidebooks combined with their JW expertise.

In at least two contests arranged by Uncle Scrooge, HD&L showed to be the better qualified for taking over the McDuck empire...
