He is one of the sons of Della Duck, who is the sister of Donald Duck and also the niece of Scrooge McDuck. Huey and his brothers, Dewey and Louie are taken care of by Donald.
At first, he and his brothers behaved extremely badly. But, after they joined the junior woodchucks, he and his brothers got a little more obedient to their uncle and great uncle. He still a little rascal, though
Thanks to the junior woodchucks, he and his brothers have become very gifted. They know martial arts, can survive easily in the nature, drive cars, track people (not as effectively as, say, a bloodhound) and do all kinds of other things. He (and his brothers) also have a copy of a book called Junior woodchucks manual, which contains an uncounted, vast amount of information.
Huey and his brothers were created by Ted Osborne and Al Taliaferro in 1938. Their first Disney animated appearance was in the 1938 short called "Donald's Nephews", where the three annoy Donald with their shenanigans.
They have also been shown in several shows including Duck Tales, where they fought such forces as Magica De Spell, Ma Beagle and several other antagonists (though they faced Magica earlier in the comics).
When Scrooge makes a bet with John D. Rockerduck, he has to return several of the artifacts he has collected on his adventures (some of which Huey and his brothers collected).
Huey was one of the people who helped Scrooge bring the candy-striped ruby back to the island of Rippan Taro. However, who is lying in wait of them? Find out in Duck Tales!
