Quiz: Who is it?

1. My favourite comic figure likes lasagne, he eats a lot, but he never goes jogging because he is lazy. That's why he is quite fat. He is a very greedy and selfish animal, but I like him because he is intelligent and funny. He is a cat.

2. My favourite character lived in France a long time ago. He is fat, likes eating wild boar and has red hair. He is good-tempered and always ready to help, but not very intelligent. Luckily he's got a friend who is smaller than he is but much cleverer, so together they always win in the end.
