What I KNOW, is that they're mentioned as Huey Duck, Dewey Duck and Louie 
Duck in Don Rosa's Duck family tree. It all depends on what you define to be 
"true". Remember that no matter what you read, it may be "true" only in one

string and he snubles (aah! I CAN'T remember the correct word) over the 
string, they lay out a wallet with a string which he picks up and they drag 
in the string so that he falls, they paint a picture of Donald and sends it 
up in a balloon and it falls down in this man's face). In the end of the 
story, the four of them (HDL & Donald) are called down to the courthouse, 
and when they are called into the courtroom, the man calling them in says

But - a possibillity is that Donald have adopted them, and they have taken 
HIS name. A sister of my grandfather was raised in another family than her 
own, and she took that family's last name. But I don't like that to be
