The Beagle Boys are a gang of anthropomorphic beagle thugs, and Scrooge's archenemies.
The Beagle Boys are not only a gang, but also an absurdly large family, of which all the gang members are also part. Most Beagle Boys don't have names, and are just called by their number. The worldwide leader of the Beagle Boys is Grandpa Beagle, the organization's founder. The main part of the Beagles remains the one located in Duckburg, who are directly descended from the very first Beagle Boys, and are placed directly under the command of Grandpa Beagle. They do however also have a flock of more different cousins (such as the ones featured in DuckTales) who sometimes come to visit them.
All the Beagle Boys steal and otherwise commit various crimes, but their #1 goal is to rob Scrooge McDuck, and most primarily to take the contents of his Duckburg Money Bin. It is a common occurence that, when Scrooge travels to a foreign country, he will meet a gang of Beagle Boys who are only too happy to finally have an opportunity to fulfill every Beagle Boy's most sacred mission (robbing Scrooge).
The Duckburg Trio
The Beagles most usually seen are a trio (sometimes joined by more identical siblings) who permanently live in Duckburg in a trailer they often share with Grandpa Beagle. When staying with them, Grandpa acts as the trio's advisor and de-facto leader, being much smarter than them. With or without Grandpa Beagle, the Trio often act as "the" Beagle Boys within Duckburg, and are often referred to as such — as though there were no others. They are the ones to whom Penny Beagle, the Beagle Brats and Betsy Beagle are respectively a niece, nephews and sister.
The Duckburg Trio's prison numbers are not consistent, and it is possible that different Beagles out of the eight to twelve sometimes seen together in Duckburg take shifts at being part of the Trio, though it may simply be a case of Beagles changing or trading prison numbers over time as has been known to happen. 176-167, 176-671, 176-761 and 176-176 are the most often-seen numbers. Out of the trio, there is usually a "tough guy", somewhat smarter than the two others, who takes charge in Grandpa's absence; if the numbers are 176-167, 176-671 and 176-761, it is usually 167.
Behind the scenes
