Named by Pizza Hut
Dav Pilkey was named by Pizza Hut. A Pizza Hut label-maker printed out his name tag as "Dav" instead of "Dave," and the new name stuck. Dav invented Captain Underpants in second grade. He was the class clown, and when he disrupted the classroom, he'd be sent to sit in the hallway. He would daydream and draw pictures and make his own comic books -- including ones about Captain Underpants.
