I'm so very glad Artie and Gene became the go-to characters for Cosmos hi-jinks all those years ago - they make such a fantastic double-act. Although Artie appears to be the sane, level-headed one of the pair, and Gene is, well, completely insane, there's actually quite a bit of subtlelty to their dynamic. There's often a very cunning, almost scientific reasoning process behind Gene's crazy schemes; leading him to experiments that make you think 'Yehh, that's a very good question.... what WOULD happen if you did that?' And while Artie frequently tries to guide his friend away from the more extreme sources of wonder / certain death, he is clearly impressed and highly intrigued by the left-of-centre ideas that Gene comes up with; and admires the fact that he can think in such.... interesting directions. The fact that he gleefully joins in in their implementation is testament to that!
