But one day I’m gonna see the world. I’m gonna be an explorer! I’m gonna eat a hamburger!
~ Webby’s most famous quote.
Family are people who stick by you, fight for you, blindly invade a sinister villains' secret stronghold for you. Family would do anything to keep you safe, and sacrifice everything to love you, no matter who or what you are. Like Scrooge. Like, my granny. Or like you two. Please. Help us save our family.
~ Webby telling May and June the true meaning of family and convincing them to help.
Webbigail "Webby" Vanderquack, born as April McDuck, is the one of deuteragonists of the 2017 DuckTales reboot series, serving as the central protagonist in Season 1, the tritagonist in Season 2 and one of two main protagonists (alongside Huey) of Season 3. She is foster granddaughter of Mrs. Beakley, and the genetic clone/daughter of Scrooge McDuck. She is also the older clone/sister of May and June.
She was voiced by Kate Micucci, who also voiced Sadie Miller in Steven Universe, Galial in Sofia the First, Julie Kane in Motorcity, Dr. Fox in Unikitty!, Sara Murphy in Milo Murphy's Law, Velma Dinkley in the Scooby-Doo franchise, and Luhley in Ben 10: Omniverse.

In her life prior to the events of "Woo-oo!", Webby had very little social contact in her entire life, which makes her socially awkward upon meeting new people. Webby is an excitable young girl, often rambling and never knowing when to stop speaking. This Webby is a bit of a tomboy, unlike her 1987 version. In addition to her cuteness, Webby is kind and sweet and cares about those around her deeply. She is a big fan of the McDuck family, is very knowledgeable on many aspects of their genealogy, and always enjoys studying their exciting and mysterious family. Webby is a very athletic and capable young girl, skilled in espionage-tactics, accents, and parkour. With all of her cooped up energy for adventure and danger, Webby can make a small game intense; as shown in "Daytrip of Doom!"
Webby is revealed to be an enthusiastic adventure fan and a Clan McDuck historian who idolizes Queer Duck as one of the greatest adventurers of all time. Having spent most of her life sheltered from the outside world by her grandmother (among the activities withheld from her prior to her befriending Huey, Dewey and Louie are theme park visits and sledding), Webby's curiosity drives her towards new experiences as the nephews' arrival in McDuck Manor finally causes Beakley to allow her more freedom. While the boys find her slightly intimidating upon their first meeting, they soon accept her as a close friend, and her optimism and energy often help encourage them.
After seeing an intense movie, Huey, Webby and Lena explore an abandoned subway line in search of legendary creatures and end up trapped there with the others (Mrs. Beakley, Louie, Dewey and Launchpad), as they struggle to escape. Huey and Webby argue over the creatures being real or not, as Huey believes only in the things written in his book and is afraid to do anything which doesn't follow the book's instructions. However, in the end, the two reconcile and find out that the creatures are actually true.
Mrs. Beakley is Webby's grandmother. She is always kind and looking out for her. She was introduced in "Woo-oo" where Webby mentioned her grandmother is a housekeeper. The relationship between Webby and Mrs. Beakley is more reminiscent of an immediate parent and their child since she always tries to protect her whenever something seems dangerous, despite her independence and ability to take care of herself, which she learned from her in the first place. Despite being strict with Webby at times, and is revealed to have kept many secrets from her granddaughter, Mrs. Beakley is willing to do anything to keep her safe, apparently viewing her as a surrogate daughter.
However, in a shocking twist in the finale, it is revealed that Mrs. Beakley is not Webby’s grandmother, or even related to her, as Mrs. Beakley’s daughter and son-in-law died before Webby was born. Webby is actually Scrooge’s daughter, or rather, his clone, directly designed by F.O.W.L. using Scrooge’s DNA for the sole purpose of stealing and writing in the Papyrus of Binding, an artifact that is able to warp reality by writing anything in it. Because Scrooge wrote that only a direct descendant of his could write anything on its pages, F.O.W.L. created a clone using his tail feathers as a genetic template to ensure that his “daughter” could sneak in and steal the Papyrus, this clone being Webby. Beakley broke into a F.O.W.L. facility and rescued an infant Webby (then called April), and has since raised her, keeping her origins completely secret for everyone, even to Scrooge himself. Upon discovering this, Webby was hurt and felt betrayed by her grandmother for keeping this a secret from her, although she eventually reconciled with her and continued to refer to her as her grandmother.
Huey is one of Webby best friends. They have a brother-sister like dynamic, as he behaves like an older brother to her, even though he's actually younger. They are both very intelligent for their age and are always prepared and resourceful in their adventures. Huey is always comforting, understanding and honest with her, which shows in "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!" where Huey gives up having an adventure with his brothers to let Webby feel included, and comforts Webby by promising her to never leave her behind. Although in "Terror of the Terra-firmians!" they're shown to have different outlooks; Webby is very open-minded while Huey is logical and goes with what he knows. This leads them to argue with each other, but they would eventually put their arguing aside and help each other. In the series’ finale, it is revealed that Huey and Webby are actually related, via Webby being a clone of Scrooge and therefore his “daughter,” much to their shock.
Dewey is one of Webby’s best friends, yet Dewey is Webby's closest friend. This is not only because they're kindred spirits due to their shared love for adventures and exploration, but also because they are very reliable, trusting and compassionate towards each other, which creates a strong sense of mutual respect. This shows in "Daytrip of Doom" when everyone was hesitant to bring Webby to Funzo's Fun-zone, knowing she was going to be a handful, but Dewey wanted to give her a chance and help her out. And in "The Great Dime Chase" when Dewey wishes to know about his mother, he goes to Webby and she helps him through all the trails. They end up discovering a secret room dedicated to Della. Dewey trusts Webby to keep this as their secret until they know what it means. With all the trust and kindness Dewey gives Webby in their friendship, she does the same in return in "The Spear of Selene!" Dewey wishes to quit the conspiracy hunt of Della Duck. Although Webby doesn't want to end her investigation on Clan McDuck, they end up fighting about it. However, once she found out that Dewey was scared to know his mother's true nature, she shows her sympathy and steps aside in support for her friend's needs. In the series’ finale, it is revealed that Dewey and Webby are actually related, via Webby being a clone of Scrooge and therefore his “daughter,” much to their shock.
Although they don't have a lot in common, Louie and Webby are still good friends. Webby has shown to sometimes get frustrated with Louie, especially when he ignores her warnings and does his own thing. This is shown in "Woo-oo" when he takes the medusa gauntlet, and in "The Living Mummies of Toth-Ra" where Louie seeks out to manipulate situations to his own benefit. Yet, despite their differences, they help each other in times of need. In the series’ finale, it is revealed that Louie and Webby are actually related, via Webby being a clone of Scrooge and therefore his “daughter,” much to their shock.
Webby admires Scrooge so much that for the longest time, learning about him, his family and adventures was a hobby. Scrooge himself is an inspiration for Webby to be an explorer, so she prepared and trained herself diligently for going on an adventure with him. In their adventures, Scrooge has addressed Webby as family, but in "From the Confidential Casefiles of Agent 22!", they became closer, and Scrooge learns to respect and admire Webby for her spirit and skills. Than he gives her the honor of addressing him as Uncle Scrooge, accepting her as a partner and honorary niece.
It is revealed in the series finale "The Last Adventure!", that Webby is the “daughter” of Scrooge, much to everyone's surprise. Webby is then specifically revealed to be Scrooge’s clone, having been directly designed by F.O.W.L. to steal the Papyrus of Binding since Scrooge wrote that only a direct descendant of his could write in it. Since this ordeal, Scrooge began to think of Webby as his actual daughter, since she technically was.
Webby is a fan of Donald Duck. She sees him as one of the greatest adventurers of all time. She wants to know more about him and have adventures with him. As seen in The House of The Lucky Gander! where Donald wins, she hugged him. Also, in The Shadow War!, when Donald says "get away from my kids", he includes her too, meaning Donald sees her as a sort of honorary niece. They are often side by side. As seen in intro, we can see that they smiled at each other.
Lena is the first female friend Webby made outside the mansion, and they are very close. They met in "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!" when Webby stayed back on the beach while the boys went sailing. Webby saw Lena's message in a bottle prank and was immediately interested in Lena, as she found her sharp wit and her worldly travels to be very cool. Lena also found Webby to be interesting with her multi-talents, but also found her frustrating, as seen in ‘The Shadow War’. Through their trials with the Beagle Boys, they grew a very close bond. Even when Lena was going against Huey, Dewey, and Louie, she stood by Webby and was supportive of her. They are very trusting and loyal to each other. Webby loves having the mischievous Lena as a friend.
This incarnation of Webby appears to be much more of a tomboy than the original counterpart.
Like her original, she is of Dutch descent.
According to Ludwig Von Drake, it is revealed that she is genetic clone of Scrooge McDuck from his DNA which technically made her Scrooge's daughter. This also makes Webby the third protagonist artificially created by villain. The first one - Lena (made from Magica's shadow), while the second - B.O.Y.D. (built by Dr. Akita, alongside with Gyro). But unlike two of them, Webby was the only one who didn't know about her true roots.
