Tik-Tok and his new pet!

Tik-Tok, by design, is a mechanical man who apparently has a guarantee of 1000 years. I wonder if they have a warranty renewal card you send in when it's time? I guess we won't know that for another 895 years... or so.



That's some fine hair and mustache he's sportin' there! I suppose its painted on. L. Frank Baum first mentions him in Ozma of Oz (1907) but it would seem he was such a compelling character that he needed his own book; Tik-Tok of Oz (1914).


Reminds me of Aadon Blu and Nicholas Pickleless, two characters I met in Family of Oz who compelled me to write their story.

Disney, of course, did what I felt was a fine rendition of Tik-Tok in Return to Oz.


When I wrote Family of Oz, Tik-Tok played a major role, especially since he got himself a new mechanical pet named Cobbler the Dog.


He's one fine hot dog!!!

  1. In any other hand but Baum's, Tik-Tok would just have been a knockoff of Nick Chopper. That's the real value of Oz in a nutshell!

  2. Yeah, but is Cobbler edible? Sorry, I had to do that.

  3. Good pun! Cobbler the Dog is made from cobbler tools, so eatin' iron might be kinda hard!
