Torgo is a character from the Timon & Pumbaa TV series who appears in "Monster Massachusetts." He is voiced by Maurice LaMarche.


Torgo is a gray monster with a head shaped like a tooth. He wears a yellow jacket, a black shirt, brown pants, and black boots. He has a nail on the side of his neck.

Role in the series

Torgo was created by Dr. Caliostro and he becomes his assistant.

Caliostro asks Torgo to catch Timon and Pumbaa. After he catches the two, he puts Pumbaa in the Metamorphitron, a machine Caliostro created, to turn him into a beautiful creature. But the Metamorphitron makes Pumbaa ugly instead.

When Timon gets Pumbaa back to normal, Torgo sees that the two escaped and Timon hides in the Metamorphitron.

In order to have Torgo be on their side, Timon tells him that Caliostro is going to replace him with another monster. Torgo gets upset and decides to destroy Caliostro's laboratory. He first destroys the Metamorphitron.

Caliostro sees Torgo destroying the Metamorphitron and after the monster hits the scientist with a light bulb, the lab explodes. Torgo turns into a beautiful woman and she and Caliostro get married.


  • Torgo is based on the creature from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.
  • Although Torgo is voiced by Maurice LaMarche, his role is sometimes falsely attributed to the voice actor Jim Cummings. As a female, Torgo is voiced by Grey DeLisle.
  • Torgo's name may have some allusion to the manservant from the infamous bad movie Manos: The Hands of Fate, although this is not proven.
