―an excerpt from Call Log

Cog Thief is a trolley game. It can be played by up to 4 Toons.

Origin [1]

Sir Max proposed the idea to create a game where robots try to steal gag barrels while Toons try to stop them by throwing pies. When he showed the Toon Council the budget needed to build said trolley game, they instantly rejected the idea.

On his way to go find "public land" to build his trolley game on, a Loony Labs scientist stops him and offers to build him the robots needed for the game. Once finished, Sir Max returned to the Toon Council and showed them the finished project, which they accepted and added to the Trolley, but would remove it if it got bad reviews.


The objective of the game is to throw pies to protect four gag barrels in the center of the arena from Cogs until the time runs out. If Toons lose all of the barrels, a message at the end will say NO BARRELS SAVED. If they save at least one, they win and receive jellybeans. Cogs chase after Toons as well as try to steal the barrels. If caught, Toons will be launched in the air and land on the ground. A cog only needs to be hit once to be destroyed.

  • In Toontown Rewritten Alpha, this game was originally called Robot Thief. After the Cogs' name was revealed, the game was renamed to Cog Thief.
  • In Toontown Online, Cog Thief was played from an overhead view. The developers of Toontown Rewritten changed this to the standard view.
  • The arena used for this version of Cog Thief was originally a scrapped Tag Game arena in Toontown Online for Daisy Gardens.
  • The Cogs can go through the sides of the tunnels, however, Toons cannot. However, their pies can go through the sides of the tunnels.
  • In contrast to the original Cog Thief, Toons now use the "Delete" or "Alt" key to throw a pie rather than the "Ctrl" key. This is similar to the VP battle gameplay.
