Webbigail Vanderquack, better known as Webby, is a young female anthropomorphic duck.
Webby is the granddaughter of Mrs. Beakley. They both settled in McDuck Mansion in 1987 when Scrooge hired Mrs. Beakley as a guardian for Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck. Webby is always trying to prove her worth to the Duck triplets, who tend not to take her seriously because she's “just a girl”, although they do care for her event though they rarely admit it; she is also loved by Scrooge, who has promoted her his "adopted niece".
Behind the scenesEdit
Though set to make her official debut in the 1987 TV movie The Treasure of the Golden Suns, Webby ended up actually starting out in the 1986 television ad known as the “DuckTales Plush Toys Commercial”.
- Russi Taylor (DuckTales)
- Kate Micucci (DuckTales 2017, actually an alternate version of the character)
Her character seems to have split the fanbase. Some fans see her as a very endearing character, but others think of her as a mercantile attempt at bringing a(n overly, ridiculously cute) girl character to appeal more to female audiences. Due to her controversial status, Webby has not really made the leap to comics, unlike Launchpad, only appearing in comics directly related to DuckTales, with one notable exception, the 2016 story Paperino e i 6 gradi di separazione, which has so far not been published anywhere outside Italy.
