If it's not in the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook, then it's not a thing.

–Huey

Hubert "Huey" Duck is one of the eight main protagonists in DuckTales. He is the son of Della Duck and is the oldest of Donald Duck's nephews.

Description

The oldest of the triplets (by three seconds), he is often called upon to be "The Brains." He LOVES being a triplet, is the consummate Junior Woodchuck, and often finds himself scrambling to find logical solutions to the completely illogical. Ever the explorer, Huey is always eager to test his mettle and may one day earn his Adventurer's Merit Badge.

Appearance

Huey is a small white 11-year-old Duck with a red shirt and red cap on his head.

Personality

Huey is a smart "by the book" guy (specifically the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook). Huey is an intelligent, analytical, and precarious boy scout. Huey is the most rigid of the triplets but he is still troublesome like his brothers yet he stands out by being a duck of strategy. Huey also comes off as "nerdy" as he is shown to enjoy science; in discovery, books, modern inventions and more. His own brother Louie has called him nerdy yet he is proud of it, shown in Terror of the Terra-firmians!.

Huey is a down to earth and loves being a junior woodchuck. Huey is a duck of logic and rational explanation as shown in Terror of the Terra-firmians! he chooses to believe in logic and science than mythology. He loves to find a logical solution in their illogical situation. While Huey can be considerate, he has his moments of being conceited. Huey takes great pride in his intelligence, organization skills, and his Junior Woodchucks trained skills; which lead him to believe that he is usually correct and or the best about most things which show in McMystery at McDuck McManor!, Terror of the Terra-firmians!, and The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks! And when anyone doubts his intellect he gets really offended like in The Living Mummies of Toth-Ra!

Huey is also very inquisitive with things he doesn't know too much about and yearns to know more. This is shows in The Spear of Selene!, once he meets Zeus he is very excited and wishes to learn more about his powers.

Huey is a brave and compassionate person (duck) he always there to help others, especially his family this is well shown in Storkules in Duckburg! when him and Webby help save everyone at Funzos from the harpies. He also shows a lot of love and appreciation for other; like his uncle Donald.

Huey loves to reach his goals with well-structured checklist because he likes to control the situation. And in general, Huey loves checklists as shown in Storkules in Duckburg!

Although, while Huey can be level-head he becomes unstable when things don't go the way he planned, usually responding with anger and/or anxiety. His anxiety as shown in The Most Dangerous Game...Night! when one of his uniform stripes came loose, and he thought he was losing his skills. It was also shown in Terror of the Terra-firmians! when Huey is afraid of (the unknown) something bad happening.

Huey has shown his aggressive side in The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks! when things don't work out the way he hoped, leading to him losing his temper (he inherited his uncle's temper). This was also shown in The Impossible Summit of Mt. Neverrest! where Huey snapped at great Uncle Scrooge for being too stubborn to turn around.

Yet Huey can bring himself back to being calm and rational, to figure out the problem given to him. Intelligent, confident, brave, kind and talented Huey will take charge in any adventure no matter how dangerous or ridiculous it gets.

Skills and Abilities

He possesses multiple skills and knowledge that was taught to him as both a junior woodchuck and in numerous natural and supernatural readings such as books like the Necronomicon. Huey is an analytical thinker which he uses with great pride, to construct plans whenever there is trouble or just for fun. Huey knows how to change his voice and to pick a lock with anything, as seen in the comic issue #1. Huey is the second most capable of the kids, second only to Webby.

Relationships

Family

Dewey & Louie Duck

Huey is very close to his brothers. Despite their differences they love to hang out with each other as brothers, as well as friends. They all share a mischievous and adventurous spirit. Though Huey and Dewey can be very competitive, they are still very close and he is protective of his brothers.

Donald Duck

Donald is Huey's uncle and guardian, and despite his shortcomings, he loves him a lot. Huey is the closest nephew to Donald as he is very supportive and kind to him. Even when everyone else thought little of him in The House of the Lucky Gander! Huey stood up for Donald to say that he thinks Donald's cool. And Huey has shown to take great influence from Donald to be responsible, hard-working, and a caring person. 

Della Duck

Della is Huey's biological mother. Though they have yet to meet face-to-face, Huey helps the investigation of Della's disappearance.

Eventually, meeting in Nothing Can Stop Della Duck!, Huey first asks questions to his mother about her survival on the Moon and both share their Junior Woodchuck knowledge as both are members.

In Happy Birthday, Doofus Drake! they are seen bonding over Legends of Legend Quest, a game that they both enjoy playing.

Scrooge McDuck

Huey adores his great uncle Scrooge, he especially respects his great uncle for his intelligence which is shown in the pilot Woo-oo!. Yet even with his respect for him Huey isn't afraid to talk back to him, like in The Impossible Summit of Mt. Neverrest! when Scrooge was taking a dangerous risk to make it to the top of a mountain.

Friends

Webby Vanderquack

Huey and Webby have a brother-sister like dynamic. They are both very intelligent for their age and always prepare and resourceful in their adventures. Huey is always comforting, understanding, honest and brotherly to her; which shows in The Beagle Birthday Massacre! Huey wanted to let Webby feel included in their adventure and comforted Webby by promising her to never leave her behind again. Although in Terror of the Terra-firmians! they show to have a different outlook; Webby is very open-minded and whimsical, while Huey going by logic and with what he knows. This leads them to argue with each other. But they put their arguing aside and help each other.

Lena De Spell

Lena stepped up and suggested they look for Terra-firmians in Terror of the Terra-firmians! showing some belief and some doubt in Webby's claim. Lena and Huey may have shown some bonding as they spent so much time in the underground subway system, though Lena enjoys teasing Huey about his nerdy ways with the Junior Woodchuck Guide Book.
