Whats with people hiding their identity using the name Jane or John Doe?
I don't get it. Even on a cartoon there is a character called Jane doe. Whats with these names?

Those usually aren't actual names. It's a reference to when police don't have any clue who someone is, they refer to them as being a jane doe or john doe.
They're probably just making a joke in cartoons.

If it's a joke it's not a very funny one considering when police use the name Jane or John Doe, the person in question is dead.
