Run around a ball? HEEELP!

I'm trying to have a small sphere about 150 in diameter and for hours I have tried to get an toon to run around it but he always falls off. Even if he isnt using gravity or is kinematic. I cannt for the life of me get him to run arround the ball! I've even tried updating his gravity to be the vector to the planet but then he gets to the equator and bobs up and down. any suggestions!? this should be easy but I'm failing right now...

Have you tried putting a rotation on the ball, not the toon? That might work, it'll still get the effect you wanted if you put a walk animation on the toon.

There is a Mario Galaxy-esque movement script in this topic.
