Starting with Huey, Dewey, and Louie’s debut in a 1937 Donald Duck comic strip (meaning the nephew trio will turn 80 next month), the timeline also touches on the Uncle Scrooge comic book — the comics work of legendary creator Carl Barks is a major influence on both incarnations of DuckTales — and the 1990 debut of the Disney Afternoon, which was inspired by the success of DuckTales. It also touches on 1990’s DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, the first movie of DisneyToon Studios (The Guys Who Did All Those Disney Direct To Video Sequels and Tinker Bell Films)
