"If it's not in the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook, then it's not a thing.'' - Huey[Source]
Hubert "Huey" Duck is a main character in Duck tales and is one of Donald Duck's nephews.
The oldest of the three nephews (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.
Huey is a small white 10 year old duck with a red shirt and red cap on his head.
Huey is a smart "by the book" guy (specifically the Junior Woodchuck Guide Book). Huey is intelligent, resourceful and precautious boy scout. Huey is the most mature of the trio but he is still be mischievous and troublesome like his brothers, but 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 brothers Louie has call him nerdy and he is proud of it, shown in Terror of the Terra-firmians.
Huey is also 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 choose to believe in logic and science than mythology. He loves to finds a logical solution in their illogical situation. While Huey can considerate he has his moments be a bit conceited, Huey takes great pride in his intelligence, organization skills, and Junior Woodchucks trained skills; which lead him to believe that he is usually correct and or the best about most things which shows in McMystery at McDuck McManor!, Terror of the Terra-firmians, and The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks.
And when anyone doubt his intellect he gets really offended like in The Living Mummies of Toth-Ra! Its was also shown in Terror of the Terra-firmians that Huey is afraid of the unknown but can not shy away from a mystery.
Huey loves to reach his goals with well structured check list, because he likes to control the situation. Although even though Huey can be levelhead he become unstable when things don't go the way he planned. 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 to stubborn to turn around.
