42 CINEMONTAGE / Q1 2019 by Debra Kaufman • portraits by Christopher Fragapane L ongtime classic Disney character Donald Duck's mischievous nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie made their very first appearance 82 years ago in a February 1937 Donald Duck Sunday newspaper comic strip (only three years after Donald himself was created). By October of that year, the triplets had their own strip, Donald's Nephews, and six months later, in April 1938, the three ducklets made their animated debut in a cartoon short of the same name. The characters endured, in print and on screen, throughout the decades. Half a century after their creation, they got their own television series, DuckTales (1987-1992). This was followed a few years later by another animated series, Quack Pack (1996), in which they were joined by their exasperated uncle Donald and ultra-rich grand-uncle Scrooge McDuck. >>> DUCK DYNASTY Editing the Fowl Play of Huey, Dewey, Louie and Company DuckTales. ©Disney Enterprises, Inc.
