Toby is a cheeky, fun loving, adventure seeking, 9 year old boy that has a knack for getting into trouble and an even more impressive talent for getting himself out of it due to his quick, creative and resourceful thinking. He is the type of kid that unexpected and magical things ‘just happen’ whenever he is around.
Toby lives a pretty normal life; lives at home with Mum, Dad and his older brother Sam, receives average marks at school, rebels against his parents and teachers over the need to do homework and fights with his mum over her daily request to eat his vegetables. That is until the day he loses one of his teeth whilst being forced to eat yet another pile of vegetables for dinner.
Unbeknownst to Toby the tooth sets off a series of unexpected and crazy trades. Starting with the tooth and ending with Toby becoming the proud owner of his very own time travelling rocket. The rocket, whilst modestly built and slightly ‘rustic’ looking is still the best and coolest thing Toby has ever seen. Better still is when Toby discovers that the rocket is equipped with a talking computer, ARTHUR (A Robotic Time-Travelling Hyper-Driven Universal Rocket).
It is not all clear sailing though, as Toby must overcome challenges such as finding a viable fuel source for his rocket as well as escaping Mum’s overbearing ways with respect to doing his homework and his chores. After a string of failed attempts at finding fuel for his rocket, Toby quite by chance makes a marvellous and unexpected discovery in brussel sprouts and so, Toby’s Tremendously Awesome Blow Off Juice is created.
Armed with his amazing Blow Off Juice and a backpack full of essential items, as well as some non- essential items (such as silly putty, a stink bomb and a ninja star), Toby is ready to embark on his first adventure. Unfortunately, as per usual, nothing is simple or straight forward in the crazy life of Toby and things do not go as planned.
A trip back in time to visit the dinosaurs sees him come face to face with an angry Tyrannosaurus Rex that wants to eat him for his dinner. In ancient Egypt, Cleopatra mistakes Toby for a powerful wizard and holds him captive until he can perform a magic spell that will heal her sick crocodile; And 500 years in the future he accidentally finds himself on the wrong side of the law and ends up being thrown in a floating jail by Robo Cops! Will Toby be able to escape with nothing other than the contents of his backpack and his imagination to help him? Will Toby’s life ever be normal again? Try as you may, it is impossible to resist Toby’s charm or being drawn into his crazy world; a world where trouble, fun and adventure are not only expected but are a daily occurrence!
