Doodles are pets for Toons. They are similarly shaped to jellybeans and have eyes, a nose, ears, and feet, along with an array of possible unique features such as fur patterns, tails, horns, and antennae. On April 10, 2017, Fluffy returned to Flippy with thousands of other doodles, allowing them to be adopted by Toons.

Different doodles with a different variety of traits can be adopted from certain Pet Shops. During adoption, Toons can choose a doodle and give them a pre-generated name. The options for every Pet Shop's doodles change each day at every playground.

A doodle is sent to their owner's estate after adoption. The doodle appears on their owner's friend list so they can check on their doodle at any given moment. If a Toon is not satisfied with the doodle they adopted, they can speak to a Pet Shop clerk to return the doodle.

Traits

When adopting a doodle, a list of specific traits appear on the respective doodle. Traits determine how a doodle may behave. To find a doodle with the best possible traits, visit the Pet Shop from The Brrrgh or Donald's Dreamland. The rest of the Pet Shops tend to have doodles with decent traits and bad traits. Standard doodles may at least be found in the Pet Shop from Donald's Dock.

Training and catering

Toons can cater to their doodles by opening their respective doodle panels that provide a few options for them to be called, scratched, or fed.

A doodle's trick meter is also revealed on their doodle panel, showing how many laff points are offered by each and every trick if performed successfully. Training a trick boosts how much laff a trick can restore and reduces the chance of a doodle getting confused. Depending on where a Toon adopts a doodle, they have different traits that determine their overall behavior; locate the above "Traits" section to learn more.

Tricks

Trick phrases.png

Jump is the very first doodle trick that every Toon obtains by default. This is the most basic trick that a doodle can learn, capable of restoring up to 10 laff when fully trained, and 5 laff with minimal training. To teach a doodle a trick, or practice a trick, use the SpeedChat phrase "Here girl!" or "Here boy!" from the "Pets" section, or select the "Call" button from the doodle panel. Once the doodle arrives at the exact location of where a Toon is, a desired trick phrase can then be selected by that Toon.

After a Toon selects the desired trick phrase, their doodle then either performs the trick successfully or unsuccessfully. If the trick is successfully performed, the doodle heals any Toons in close proximity and gains points in their trick meter on the doodle panel. As the trick meter increases, the laff the trick restores also increases until it reaches its maximum value. Doodles can become tired after performing tricks and need rest. To help the doodle feel happy, a Toon can feed them jellybeans and say positive phrases to them, such as "Good boy!" or "Good girl!".

Toons can purchase other tricks from Clarabelle's Cattlelog for up to 600 jellybeans each. A Toon can purchase each of the following trick phrases with the exception of Jump.

Moods

Doodles can experience a variety of moods that affect their overall behavior. Different traits can influence how often certain moods occur. For example, a doodle that has a trait of being often tired would become tired frequently after performing single tricks, while a rarely tired doodle almost never tires out after performing tricks. Each mood can affect how a doodle performs. Moods are identified by symbols that appear above a doodle's head.

Mood Description
Affectionate A doodle is feeling affectionate towards their owner and may want some extra attention. This is typically identified by a pink heart symbol.
Confused A doodle is confused, usually resulting from a failed trick. This is typically identified by a question mark (?) symbol.
Hungry A doodle is hungry and wants to be fed jellybeans. This is typically identified by a chicken leg symbol.
Bored A doodle is bored and does not feel entertained. This is typically identified by an ellipsis (...) symbol.
Excited A doodle is very excited to see their owner. This is typically identified by an exclamation mark (!) symbol.
Sad A doodle is sad due to their owner saying mean phrases to them. This is typically identified by a blue sad face symbol.
Sleepy A doodle is tired and may no longer want to perform tricks during this time. This is typically identified by a "ZZZ" symbol.
Lonely A doodle is lonely and wants attention from their owner. This is typically identified by a symbol that shows doodles huddled together.
Angry A doodle is angry with their owner due to being neglected by negative phrases. This is typically identified by a symbol that shows grey clouds with lightning bolts.

Tips and training notes

It is quite common to see Toons call their doodle for help in Cog battles, only to be disappointed when their doodle unsuccessfully performs a trick for the tenth time. However, this does not need to be common. Unfortunately, none of the tricks have perfect accuracy. Like gags, each trick starts out at 0 skill points and has the standard maximum skill points of 10,000, and each trick gives 5 skill points. This means Toons need to have their doodle perform 2,000 successful tricks before maximum accuracy and laff for those tricks can be reached.

Although Toons can train doodles during Cog battles, a faster method is to simply train them at the estate. Training at the estate, however, still requires approximately over 10 hours of dedicated work to max a trick. Each time a trick is being trained, the accuracy and a doodle's stamina with that trick increase. In other words, a fully trained doodle can easily perform five to ten tricks without getting tired, whereas an untrained doodle is exhausted after performing one trick.

As mentioned above, there are many ways to have a doodle return to a positive state after being in a negative state (i.e. tired to excited). The fastest way, when training, is to say a trick phrase repeatedly. Repeating a phrase as much as possible is very time consuming but remains the simplest way of training a doodle. It is recommended that Toons train their doodles when the "Doodle Trick Boost" Silly Team is active for frequent performance of tricks and earning extra skill points.

Accuracies

Each trick has its own base accuracy. When training each trick, the accuracy slowly increases as a doodle becomes better at performing the trick. A doodle eventually reaches the maximum accuracy for each trick, which is when they are considered "maxed". Accuracy is a confusing equation, but to put it simply, it is a calculation that relies on a doodle's state, what trick a Toon is using, and a doodle's skill points with said trick. Below are to show the accuracy of each trick at different stages of training. Note how inaccurate an untrained doodle's tricks are. It pays to train a doodle, as the reward is a very reliable trick.

The following tables show the accuracies for each trick at each level of training. A positive mood is when a doodle feels neutral, affectionate, or excited. A negative mood is when a doodle feels tired, hungry, bored, or angry. The accuracy listed is the percentage chance that a doodle performs said trick; the accuracy of a trick is increased every time a doodle successfully performs it, and therefore the percentages listed are a range.

Assistance in Cog battles

Like SOS Toons, doodles can be called by Toons may call for assistance in Cog battles. A Toon selects a trick to call their doodle and the doodle attempts to perform the trick after teleporting. If the trick fails, the doodle feels sad and has a question mark symbol above their head, leaving their owner disappointed. If the trick successfully works, laff points are granted to all Toons in battle, depending on the amount that a trick offers. The doodle also gains training points when a trick is successfully performed in battle. The doodle teleports back to their owner's estate after attempting to perform a trick.

Trivia

  • The first appearance of a doodle in Toontown Rewritten was Fluffy whom Flippy found during construction of the "ToonFest Grounds" for ToonFest 2014.[1]
    • When the event area opened on April 1, 2015 renamed as Barbecue Headquarters, Fluffy mentioned "Home is near!", which hinted that other doodles were nearby.[2]
    • Flippy mentioned how there was something about the event area that made Fluffy wander off from time to time.[3] Right after ToonFest 2015 ended on October 20, 2015, Fluffy mysteriously disappeared.[4]
      • On April 8, 2017, Fluffy was spotted roaming around Toontown. Toons could hunt for him in Toon Buildings from the streets and, if found, would speak some dialogue about his friends, which hinted towards the release of doodles.[5]
  • According to a Toontown Online trading card, doodles came from a land known as "Doodlevania" owned by an emperor named Deedle von Doodlesworth. This is still true in the Toontown Rewritten lore, and it is apparent that Doodlevania is located just off the outskirts of where the Cartoonival Grounds are.
  • Doodles can swim in the estate's fishing pond. Unlike Toons, they float on the water instead of diving into it. When doodles swim, their legs act as paddles to propel through the water.
  • Sam stated at OMG!Con 2015 that doodles caused heavy server lag in Toontown Online, which is why the Toontown Rewritten Team had to fix this before implementing doodles to prevent lag issues and stress on servers.
  • Even though doodles cannot wear accessories, there are various pieces of artwork from outside or inside the Pet Shops that depict doodles wearing shoes.
  • Calling an SOS Toon that utilizes "Toons Hit" in battle allows a doodle to successfully perform a trick regardless of their condition.
  • Despite the dialogue Pet Shop clerks give when Toons do not adopt a doodle after browsing, the doodles for sale change every few days rather than being dependent on whether or not other Toons adopt a specific doodle.
  • One of Toontown Online's many design documents that were offered to the Toontown Rewritten Team by Bruce Woodside for pets (before they would come to be known as doodles) was revealed by former staff member, Jeremy, on May 13, 2020.[6]
