DuckTales chronicles the adventures of trillionaire Scrooge McDuck; his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie; his volatile nephew Donald Duck. McDuck is also backed by his trusted McDuck Manor squad: fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack, housekeeper Mrs. Beakley and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, fellow adventurer and a friendly addition to the Huey-Dewey-Louie dynamic.
