The Birth Of 'Baby Huey'
14 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As someone who hasn't read a Baby Huey comic book in 50 years and hasn't seen one of the cartoons in almost as long, this was interesting

  • almost historical - to view. It shows the beginnings of the

dumb-but-lovable Baby Huey, the biggest and strongest duck to ever live (in the fantasy world).

Mom apparently has been frustrated for a long time, unable to hatch any eggs and have "children." Other moms strut by her window with their little ones following. "Children are so cute," she sighs. "I'd like to hatch a batch."

She decides the rest of the bottle of her vitamin pills and - voilà - or should I say, "boom!" - a gigantic egg appears underneath her in the nest, propelling mom up to the ceiling. She yells for her lady friends to come and see. Seconds later, another blast occurs and out comes Baby Huey!

The chick's first words are, "Duh, I'm sorry I'm late, ma; what do ya have to eat?" Later, Huey is put on a scale for his first weighing. He breaks the scale. The other hens all laugh derisively.

When it's time for a community meal, Huey rushes over, takes the table, tilts it and devours the entire meal. The other hens are not happy. "He's not a duck," they say. "He's a pig." When something else happens, they all want him out of the community. "He's a menace," they claim; "a bad egg."

Mom is in tears and wheels Baby Huey away but when the viscous fox arrives, Huey - not even trying, but because of his enormous strength which foils the fox at every turn - becomes a "hero" and is welcomed back.

Overall, this a funny in a primitive sort of way - at least all the gabs with Huey and the fox. It's always nice to see the harmless and good-hearted good guy defeat the evil villain.
