Has Anyone Else Ever Wondered How Cobra Bubbles Got That Name?

We have a serious question. Has anyone but us ever wondered how on earth (or, we suppose, in the galaxies) did Cobra Bubbles get that name?


Cobra Bubbles is a social worker with a past as a CIA agent, which is really cool.

But… his name is Cobra Bubbles. And he has his first name tattooed on his knuckles. And he’s wearing sunglasses like a super spy is chasing him. And his voice is deeper than James Earl Jones’ Mufasa. And, apparently, he’s some special classification of social worker that even Lilo has her suspicions about.

All this brings us back to our first point: who names someone Cobra Bubbles? Did his parents give him that name or did he choose to change it at some point in his adult life? If it’s the former, we have questions for the Bubbles family. If it’s the latter, we have questions for Cobra.

Questions like these:

1.  Why choose the name Cobra? Does it signify that he’s sneaky and meant to be feared like the snake?
1a.  If yes, then: Why pair that with the last name Bubbles? It really undercuts the fear, dude.
1b.  If no, then: Seriously, what’s the significance?
2.  What do your friends call you?
3.  Can we call you Coby? Or CB? Or Bubs?
