What's in a name?

I'm just thinking about the times, and how a character named Dumb Donald probably wouldn't have made it past the network suits in the current world of children's television programing.

They wouldn't have added any more points to his IQ, but they would have dropped the modifier.

Fat Albert, for that matter, would have been called Big Al, or maybe Albert, the kid who suffers from a metabolic disorder but is still super cool.
