—"Camp Cool Kidz"

Dolph Houston is an Art Camp camper of Camp Campbell who is designed after the infamous dictator, Adolf Hitler. He speaks with a German accent and is the shortest camper at Camp Campbell.

Appearance

Dolph bears a striking resemblance to Adolf Hitler, such as the same styling of his dark brown hair. He has pale skin with rosy cheeks and blue eyes. He wears a sand-colored vest with a short sleeved brown shirt, puffy brown pants, and dark brown knee-high boots; a uniform resembling that of the Nazi party under Hitler’s control.

In Romeo and Juliet 2, his Friar Lawrence costume consists of a white, long-sleeved version of his usual vest, light grey trousers with his normal boots and a large pair of glasses

In Order of the Sparrow, his Red Indian attire consists of a brown vest with darker brown trousers and boots with three red markings on either side of his face and a feather headband. His Indian attire consists of blue trousers and a yellow decorated tunic with a blue scarf

Personality

Dolph most likely intended to come to Art Camp. He appears rather upbeat and happy most of the time and seems to share some views with Max.

Despite his blatant resemblance to Adolf Hitler, he doesn’t hold any ill will towards anyone else in the series.

More of Dolph's personality is shown in "Reigny Day." When placed in a position of power, he became very determined to enforce order, instantly declaring that the camp was now under his control and that he would make Camp Campbell "great again." More and more references to Adolf Hitler are made during the episode with a piece of black crafting paper landing on his upper lip, creating the look of a toothbrush moustache. His leadership as the temporary camp counselor was enough to merit him a "Camp Counselor of the Year Award" from the Camp Critic Committee. Despite his controlling nature, Dolph is often very sweet and happy.

In "The Candy Kingpin", Dolph is shown to be optimistic and a bit idealistic, buying into the fact that Max appreciates him as a friend, oblivious to his ulterior motive. He is the only camper who doesn't seem to complain about the food served, politely appreciating the inedibility of his breakfast. He is also quite clingy towards Max, showing his desperation for friendship. This is also shown when he goes into a bear cave to rescue the candy, rather than have lose Max as a friend. Dolph is also shown to have a morale compass, as Campbell tells him to be like Max, to use people to his advantage. Dolph declines this and chooses to tell Max to error of his ways, showing that he doesn't think much of Max and Campbell's methods in life, choosing to remain his own positive and kind person.

Trivia

  • Another trait that Dolph shares with Hitler is the fact that both are painters.
  • Dolph's painting in "Escape from Camp Campbell" has a flower with the petals arranged to look like the Nazi swastika and the dog itself is wearing an armband, which soldiers in Nazi Germany often wore to identify themselves with the Nazi Party. The dog depicted is a German Shepherd, a breed associated with the Nazis during the second world war. It could also be a reference to Hitler's German Shepherd Blondi.

    • His father's name, Stuart Houston, is a reference to Hitler's half-nephew William Patrick Hitler, who changed his last name to Stuart-Houston after World War II.
