Dilbert is a cubicle dwelling employee for a large soulless corporation. Along with his cynical and under-motivated co-workers, he labors fruitlessly under the bone-headed leadership of the Pointy-Haired Boss. Occasionally Dogbert, Dilbert's super-intelligent dog, gets Dilbert caught up in another wild money-making scheme, to Dilbert's regret. Written by

The Pointy-Haired Boss does not have a name in the Dilbert comic strip by intentional design (Scott Adams felt it would let people relate better by imposing their own bosses onto him). In the cartoon series, he one used the alias "Eunice" (when he goes dancing) and signed his real name for a courier (Courier: "THAT'S your name?" PHB: (frowning) "What of it?"). See more
