Toby is a fairly minor character. He is seen to be fairly cautious and cowardly, but is usually convinced by Skippy and Sis to join in their fun. Toby is usually seen wearing black spectacles and a brown boat-like hat.
Toby only appears to have a father, who is apparently a competitor in Prince John's archery tournament. Why he doesn't appear to have a mother is unknown, as he doesn't even speak of her, and neither does his father (who doesn't even speak).
In the movie, Toby is a turtle and a friend of Skippy, Sis, and Tagalong. He accompanies them to shoot Skippy's new bow and arrow. He is later seen at the archery tournament, where his dad is apparently a competitor. Like the rest of the town, he is imprisoned for failure to pay taxes, but escapes after Robin Hood starts a jail break. At the end of the film, he is at the wedding of Robin Hood and Maid Marian. He notices Skippy joining the couple on their carriage, and asks why Skippy is going with them.
Toby is seen playing in the streets with Skippy while Ebenezer Scrooge (portrayed by Scrooge McDuck) has been reformed by three Christmas ghosts.
Toby is seen as a guest.
- His name is possibly based on the character Toby Tortoise from the 1935 Silly Symphony cartoon The Tortoise and the Hare and the 1936 Silly Symphony cartoon Toby Tortoise Returns.
