    Dilbert is a fictional character and the main character and protagonist of the comic strip of the same name, created by Scott Adams. The character has ideas which are typically sensible and occasionally even revolutionary, but they are rarely pursued because he is powerless. He is frustrated by the incompetence and malevolence of his co-workers (most often the Pointy-Haired Boss) and often is sarcastic and snide. He was voiced by Daniel Stern in the television show.

    As of 2023, He is called "The Snoopy of the business world". Dilbert's unusual name was suggested to Scott Adams by a co-worker; Adams later found that the name likely came from a cartoon character, Dilbert Groundloop, an inept aviator used by the United States Navy during World War II.

    Why He Isn't Mismanaged

    1. To start off, he's written very well as he is a no sexual or satanic meaning office employee who is always kind to his boss and friends.
    2. He lives and cares with his pets, Dogbert, Ratbert, and Catbert (sometimes) and the three dinosaurs Bob, Rex, and Dawn.
    3. Unlike Nanny and Eliot Kid, His design is cool and well-made, especially in the comic strips, the 1999 series of the same and the the Animated Cartoons.
    4. Following the popularity of his comic strip, he is still an overall likable character who occasionally benefits Wally and Alice with his contact. Plus, his popularity is overly good and he has a personality.
    5. The way he interferes and wants work for money with Pointy-Haired Boss is a very good thing in the Dilber series.
    6. She is the most classic comic strip icon, much like Snoopy, Garfield, Calvin, Popeye, Asterix, Tintin, etc.
    7. He treats the Pointy-Haired Boss so nicely and he can often predict exactly how and when the boss will doom the current assignment. Dilbert loves computers and technology, and will spend much of his free time playing with such things. He sometimes has dates, but they all go wrong because he is boring, unattractive, and honest about the woman he is dating (they are always bad in his opinion).
    8. In 1999 TV Series of the same name, He came from is supposed to talk about his relationship with his friends and pets on an daily life at work and he could be relatable to his other workers. Basically, he's the worker type that is relatable just like characters like Homer Simpson from The Simpsons or Al McWhiggin from the Toy Story franchise.
    9. He has some nice quotes such as:
      • "A friend in need is a pest indeed."
      • "Beat the 5 O'clock rush, leave work at noon!"
      • "Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don't have film."
      • "I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow is not looking good either."
      • "It's not hard to meet expenses, they are everywhere."
      • "My reality cheque bounced."
      • "When confronted by a difficult problem, you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger handle this?""
      • "You can go anywhere you want if you look serious and carry a clipboard."
    10. He has some amazing sense of humor and adventure whenever Dogbert, Ratbert and Catbert do something together.
    11. He is easily one of the best and most iconic parts in the history.
    12. He is basically a well-done version of Arthur Read and SpongeBob SquarePants.

    Mismanaged Qualities

    1. As of February 2023, He was getting pulled by US newspapers due to racist comments from Scott Adams, which was way too bad for him.
    2. He can be treated as a Karma Houdini, for the most part, as nothing really goes wrong for him and his creator Scott Adams goes on racist trades, it's even more evident by the fact that He is dumped, Dilbert is either crying or sad.

    Trivia

    • Dilbert lives with his dog, Dogbert, a rat named Ratbert and Bob and Dawn, the dinosaurs. He often complains to an apathetic Dogbert about the nuisances of office life.
    • In the strip published Monday, October 13, 2014, Dilbert announced to Dogbert that his company had a new dress code, "Business Dorky". Dilbert's white shirt and striped tie were replaced with a red polo shirt and a badge on a lanyard. Subsequent strips published Monday through Saturday show all of the company employees wearing this same outfit, with the polo shirts varying in color between blue, green, yellow, red, orange, and purple. The Sunday strips continued to show the characters in their original outfits, until Sunday, November 9, 2014.
    • As said above, he is called "The Snoopy of the business world".
