What about April, May, and June?  Or the Beagle Brats?  Okay,  so they are 
"spinoffs" created to directly counter HD&L  (Girls to  Boys and Bad to Good), 
but they still count!  
Beep Beep the Road Runner (The one who spoke in RHYME like Bucky Bug - as  
opposed to Chuck Jones' Road Runner)  had three identical SONS (!) in the  Dell 
and Gold Key comics. 
...And, didn't Popeye have FOUR identical nephews in the Famous Studios  
Joe Torcivia.
