Tate first appeared in "The Legend of the Gobblewonker", where he tries to discipline his father, the local kook, by spraying water on him about upsetting on seeing the legendary Gobblewonker that attacked his boat but didn't believe him.
It was later revealed that he and Old Man McGucket do not have a close relationship and have drifted apart, causing his father to construct the robotic Gobblewonker to attract attention from him.
