|“||I have to hand it to you, WordGirl, you were right about me. I hadn't changed into a no-good do-gooder! It doesn't pay to be nice! After all, try to be nice - not destroy things - and look at what happens! You end up losing to an egg-slicer!||„|
|~ Toby to WordGirl.|
Theodore "Tobey" McCallister III is a ten-year-old villain in the educational TV show WordGirl. He is about the same age as Becky Botsford (who is also WordGirl) because they are often shown to be in the same class. Tobey is a boy genius that specializes in building enormous robots. His robots seem to be mostly for destructive purposes, but they have shown a wide array of abilities, such as food-making, cabin-building, checker-playing, painting, competing in athletic events, etc. Tobey is truly evil; rather, he comes across as reckless and mischievous. Often, his plans are foiled by his malfunctioning robots. At school, he generally acts like a normal dumb kid.
Theodore has a obssesive crush on WordGirl - though he would never admit it to anyone else and has argued more than once to the contrary - and often concocts michievious and destructive plans simply to impress her or win her heart. He often demands that if he manages to defeat her with his robots, she must tell him her secret identity or go out for ice cream with her. He posesses a scrapbook with WordGirl news clippings and other miscellanea. Though WordGirl and Tobey argue a lot, they occasionally show that they have some compatibility, such as in the episodes "Have You Seen the Remote?" and "Book Ends", and even though she will not say she had a good time with him in the former, she will not admit she didn't, either.
- Theodore "Tobey" McCallister III is played by comedic actor Patton Oswalt.
