|“||Wouldn't you have to take one of those teleport things there first? Oh, but then you'd already be there. It kinda renders the whole thing redundant, doesn't it?||„|
|~ Torbo pointing out a flaw.|
Torbo is a one-time villain from the Disney show Phineas and Ferb, briefly appearing in the episode "Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?". He is the assistant of the TV Scientist.
He was voiced by Dan Povenmire, who also played Heinz Doofenshmirtz in the same series.
Phineas and Ferb are watching TV where they see the TV Scientist about to test his new invention (known as the Teleporter) and uses Torbo as a guinea pig. As such, Torbo is transported from one teleportation device to the other one, resulting the TV Scientist to happily declare it a success.
When the TV Scientist decides to use his invention to teleport himself anywhere in the world, Torbo wisely points out that he would have to take one of the teleportation devices there first because he still would be in his laboratory and that it would render the whole thing useless in general. As such, the TV Scientist threatens to cut to Torbo's tongue again, thus implying that it was not the first time Torbo got his tongue cut off, much to Torbo's dismay.
It is unknown what happened to Torbo afterwards.
- Unlike the TV Scientist (who was later rewritten into a character that appeared in real life in the series), Torbo still remained a fictional character in general.
