The brilliant Dilton Doiley is the smartest teenager in Riverdale, and could be the smartest person in town. Dilton can always be found studying a new subject or working on an invention in his lab. His hard work has won him many awards, but his inventions rarely seem to work properly. The flipside of his studious ways is the lack of romantic interests in Dilton’s life. Even when he manages to ask a girl out, he usually bores her by discussing his theories rather than talking to his date during their time together! Due to his small stature, Dilton has asked Moose to accompany him on dates—just to raise him up for the end-of-the-night kiss! He is quick to help his friends using his intellect… though his inventions sometimes make even bigger messes. In the end, Dilton is a small genius with a big heart.
