The Associated Press reports, a federal judge threw out a lawsuit filed by world-renowned gamer Billy Mitchel. He claimed the Cartoon Network series “Regular Show” stole his likeness and used it in their character “Garret Bobby Ferguson” or “GBF” .

Cartoon Network Agrued stating “GBF” was a transformative and exagerated depiction of Billy Mitchel. New Jersey Federal District Judge Anne Thompson ruled that Mitchell’s appearance had been exaggerated to the point that that the character is “cartoonishly evil.” Reports Gawker.

“The television character does not match the plaintiff in appearance: GBF appears as a non-human creature, a giant floating head with no body from outer space, while Plaintiff is a human being,” Thompson wrote. “And when GBF loses his title, the character literally explodes, unlike Plaintiff.” According to the AP.
