Help with "Cartoon" Character

Most everyone who still enjoyed cartoons or had children in the 1990's know who Pinky and the Brain are.

If you don't know, Warner Brothers cartoon division produced this series.

Pinky and the Brain are genetically enhanced laboratory mice who reside in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility. In each episode, Brain devises a new plan for the two mice (led by Brain) to escape and take over the world, which ultimately ends in failure.

What you don't know is that I swear I went to Bible summer camp with the real life people versions.

I know, I know it sounds silly. However, the personalities were similar, they looked similar, and they were always trying to figure out how to break out of this "Bible" summer camp and go home. Only they always got caught.

One time they actually got off the camp grounds and were walking down the road. They had left their luggage behind while using most of their clothes and pillows stuffed in their sleeping bags plumped up to look like they were sleeping in the bags. They forgot that I and my friend Bob shared a cabin with them and that after breakfast, which they skipped and sneaked out of camp during, there was a cabin check prior to mandatory "Bible" class. They were ultimately caught about a mile away trying to hitch hike home with tied up bags on sticks over their shoulders.

So my dilemma is this. What cartoon character does my friend Bob resemble?

This has been bugging me for years. Since the
world is starting to go to Hell in a hurry I need to know before the apocalypse is upon us.

Also, don't scoff at the idea of cartoon characters being real. Cartoons are just projected caricatures of real ideas
and people. People are sometimes caricatures of who they think they should be, or who they are.

It all depends upon how honest you can be with yourself about your nature and why you believe you are here. The time is coming when caricatures will have to be lived up to or the true person will have to emerge. In the mean time, what cartoon character are you resembling and
what about Bob?
