Sounds like characters from a children's book.

Urbi and Orbi were the best of friends. Where ever Urbi went, Orbi was bound to follow. They had many happy adventures. One day Urbi said to Orbi: 'Hey, wanna go on a exciting adventure?'
And Orbi said: 'Pffft, not with you, you smelly Urbi'.
So that adventure ended rather quickly.

:lol: this was serendipitous!!!

During World War I, when all things German were verboten, the name was changed to The Shenanigan Kids, Mike and Aleck rather than Hans and Fritz, and their nationality officially became Dutch

ROTFL!!!

and the author name was Dirks!

We should have set MoSe adrift on the Maas river. Or Mosa fluvius, as they call it in Latin. :D

In Italy they actually were translated as "Bibý e Bib˛", much more assonant with Urbi et Orbi...
