Tobor (AKA "Parc")


Tobor, a very advanced robot who rolls forward... and backwards! At the end of the ad the VO says, as if dropping a real bombshell, "Tobor is 'robot' spelled backward." How do you spell "zzzzzzzzzzzz" backwards? Because that's what any kids who got this piece of junk for Christmas said within five minutes of opening it.

It also worked backwards, as in "the opposite of what a robot is supposed to do." Did it do anything on its own? It just did what it was programmed to do, regardless of the environment around it.

Like yer ma.
