And at last but not least, I finally made one for Dum Dum!
Honestly, he still needs a bit development but I wanted to give this little babbu more love <3
But since people know how I got inspiration for Myrna and Mirth, I should share for Dum Dum as well.
Rocksteady (TMNT 1987): I'll be honest, he's (and even Bebop) are the reasons why I wanted Myrna to have a duo than a commander. I sort of not only got the similar facial structure, but his persoanlity as well. For all those 80s fans of TMNT, we all know how much of a dork Rocksteady was in this cartoon. Yes, he can be pretty dangerous when you piss him off but he is a bit dimwitted and can be an adorable cutie at times. Pretty much how Dum Dum acts around whenever Myrna sends him and Mirth to do some tasks for her. (I honestly thought about giving him his VA but I'm not so sure yet....)
Broadway (The Gargoyles): Oh boy, did I love this show as a kid. And it was one of the few Disney cartoons from the 90s that I actually liked and it really got me into gargoyles. Plus out of all the gargoyles, Broadway did give me some inspiration for Dum Dum too. Not only because both are gargoyles, but like Broadway, Dum Dum does have a more happy personality and would try to cheer Myrna up whenever she gets stressed or if they fail to conquer a planet. And the two do enjoy cooking as well, the only difference is Dum Dum is just a bit more slow with thinking.
Background Monster (The Nightmare Before Christmas): Yeah forgive me, I forgot the name of this monster.
But I mostly used parts of his design to use for Dum Dum, mainly his eyes and body type. He's also pretty dimwitted as well.
Krunk (The Emperor's New Groove): Honestly yes, this big guy here also gave me motivation for Dum Dum's character. I mean like Krunk, Dum Dum does work for a female villain like Myrna and does his job to do her tasks, even if he gets distracted easily.... He's also not much of a cruel jerk like Mirth is, I mean, he's actually an adorable softie who's just a bit confused about Myrna's motivations. Plus, both of them are not only strong, but love to cook as well. Oh man, his relation with Myrna is even so similar to Krunk's with Yzma's XD
Igor (Igor 2008): Another movie I really enjoyed
I mean, Dum Dum is pretty much an Igor for being not only a royal guard... But an assistant to help her when she needs to work on things for her plans. That's why I gave him a hunchback as well, just to give him those vibes like Igor. And with this version of Igor, he may not be perfect but he always tries his best to prove that he's more than just an Igor and lab assistant to his master. He at least does have redeeming qualities. Just like how Dum Dum isn't exactly smart, he still tries his best to prove to Myrna that he's capable of being a loyal guard dog as well as an assistant. Also fun fact, before working for Myrna... Dum Dum used to be an assistant for a very famous scientist back in his home planet before he fired him and banned him and Papa Doom off their planet.
Grounder (The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog): Yes, just like with Rocksteady... Another little dimwit in a duo that works for a powerful villain. Once again, another idiot henchman that works with a jerkass of a partner (Scratch for Grounder, while its Mirth for Dum Dum) But just like Scratch and Grounder, there will be times when Dum Dum and Mirth would argue a lot when they both try to do something for Myrna. Well okay, Mirth actually gets into fights with Peepers more than Dum Dum, but this happens when they're under stressful situations or when Myrna is super pissed off at the two. He still does care about Mirth deep down even tho he gets taken advantage by him sometimes.
Eduardo (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends): Another character from Craig McCracken that inspired me with a WoY OC XD But yes, Eduardo is an adorable softie indeed. Like Eduardo, Dum Dum may have a scary side buthe can get easily scared at times.... And honestly, with Myrna's children, he does act like their imaginary friend who tends to have lovable moments.
Sulley (Monster's INC): If you guys ask why I added him here, well here's the thing. Dum Dum can actually be a very good scarer if you get on his bad side, but that only happens if he sees the people he cares about are in danger. And like Sulley, Dum Dum has a huge soft spot for children. I mean despite him looking like a big monster, he's not that scary as he seems. And when Myrna has her children, he's very sweet and caring towards them and can be a good protector like a dog. Plus, I can imagine some of the kids calling him "puppy" like how Boo calls Sulley "kitty."
Plus, Mirth would be like the Mike Wasowskie to Dum Dum's Sulley.
Harry (Bunnicula): Again, like with the Mirth getting some slight inspiration with Bunnicula, I cannot deny this character reminded me of my adorable gargoyle so much <3 I mean Harry is such an adorable dog, he's another lovable idiot and he does get pretty oblivious in situations with Bunnicula and Chester. I mean seriously, with how Harry interacts with Chester and Bunnicula on the show, it reminds me so much of how Dum Dum would be in situations with Peepers and Mirth if they had to work together. Also, I might consider giving Dum Dum his VA since his voice is how I can imagine Dum Dum's voice sounding like.
Patrick Star (The classic Spongebob Squarepants): Yeah, I know this show has been suckish these days. But honestly, Patrick was seriously one of my favorite characters of this show. I mean he did start out as a lovable idiot before he became an arrogant unlikable prick these days. But of course, I'm referring to the original Patrick here. Patrick wasn't always that brain dead... He actually did have some slightly smart moments and was very caring to his friends at least. Yes, very clusmy too... I sort of wanted Dum Dum to be something like that than just an idiot. And honestly, I can also imagine Patrick's VA with Dum Dum's vice. (Which honestly, would be hilarious since Tom Kenny voices Commander Peepers. Lmao, it would be like Peepers being Spongebob while Dum Dum is the Patrick when they're together XD)
But yeah, that's how I got inspiration for Dum Dum All characters (c) rightful owners
