The classic Disney cartoon series DuckTales was created in the 1980s and even spun off into a few movies that produced several characters that people have grown to cherish. The show was rebooted in 2017 for another generation of children to fall in love with. Enthusiasts of the show and movies may decide to show the world how much these adorable characters have influenced them by naming a new puppy after their favorite DuckTales character. So whether your new pup is called Huey, Dewey or Louie or even simply Duck, you can honor these classic Disney characters and give your puppy a unique name.
DuckTales Dog Names in Pop Culture
When you think about DuckTales you probably think of the infamous Beagle Boys gang that encompasses a large family full of career criminal Beagles. The Beagle Boys gang became a major antagonist in the series and they try all different ways to break into Scrooge McDuck’s mansion to steal his money. The leader of the Beagle Boys is surprisingly their mother, Ma Beagle. She is the most experienced thief of the group. Bigtime Beagle is the second in command and sometimes resents that his mother leads the gang. The original Beagle Boys consisted of Ma, Bigtime, Burger, Baggy, Bouncer, Bugle, Bankjob and Babyface. Each of these rather determined Beagles has their own personality and skills that are necessary to succeed in robbing Scrooge McDuck. However, every time they come up with a plan it is foiled usually by Huey, Dewey and Louie.
There are some minor characters that are part of the Beagle Boys and only made a few appearances on the show. However, these characters did win the hearts of fans with their quirky personalities and fumbling ways. Bebop, Bomber, Backwoods, Binky and Megabyte Beagle each had their own personalities and contributed something special to the gang. Then there are the Beagle Babes, Boom-Boom, Babydoll and Bouffant, which are cousins to the original Beagle Boys. Another group of Beagles that invaded DuckTales are the Beagle Brats. These younger Beagles seem to be cousins or nephews of the original Beagle Boys and were originally created in the 1960s for comic books.
Another group of minor Beagles appeared in one specific episode titled “The Beagle Birthday Massacre!” Each group had a specific idiosyncrasy that made them unique and absolutely lovable. The Deja Vus are French relatives that end up repeating themselves. The Glam Yankees dress up in Colonial costumes and musicians. Then there are the 6th Avenue Meanies who are thugs and the Bad Attitude is a subset of the Meanies. The 6th Avenue Friendlies are just that; friendly. The Benevolent Beagles are a subset of the Friendlies. The Longboard Taquitos are surfer, dare devils and the Tumblebums are evil clowns. Finally, there are the Ugly Failures, Botched Job, Bungle and Bottle. Ma Beagle sees these three as the biggest disappointments of the entire family.
While many of these Beagle names seem a little off the wall, many of them perfectly describe the bearer’s personality. This is exactly how people should think when they are looking for the perfect name for their new dog. Even if the name seems a little odd, like Megabyte or Bungle, it is unique and fits the puppy.
DuckTales Dog Name Considerations
How many times have we tried to come up with a unique name that has a strong emotional meaning for our newest dog? We stress over coming up with a name that is just right and everyone in the family agrees is perfect. Take the time to get to know your puppy and have each family member write down a few names they like. If everyone in the family likes the same show, movie, game or even music that does make it a breeze to find a name everyone agrees on. Having a house full of DuckTales fans would make coming up with a name that suits everyone and fits the puppy’s personality so much easier. Do not be afraid to take your time when naming your puppy. You want a name that is not overly used, a good fit and rolls off the tongue easily. The obvious choice would be Scrooge, Huey, Dewey or Louie, but there are so many other fun characters that graced the screen with these main characters that would honor your admiration of the show and give your pooch a unique name. So go out on a limb and try our names such as Ripcord, Grimitz, Gandra or Webby.
