"Right: Portable Holes. The Toon Council won't let toons teleport anywhere without earning it. Good for community service, I suppose."
Doctor Surlee[src]

The portable hole is an invention by Gyro Gearloose/Doctor Surlee that allows Toons to teleport to playgrounds and Cog headquarters under certain circumstances. According to the blueprint on the right, the way the portable holes work is a Toon jumps into a hole, springs onto a trampoline, and comes out flying out of the other hole.

Toons will have to complete ToonTasks to gain teleport access to every playground. After completing a ToonTask for that playground, the Toon teleport to that playground by clicking the playground on the "Map" page in the Shticker Book. Walking to Goofy Speedway and Chip 'n Dale's Acorn Acres will automatically offer teleport access to both playgrounds respectively. To gain teleport access to every Cog headquarters, Toons will also have to reach level 12 in each Cog Disguise.


"Once again, I had to put my own bypasses in. Against the rules? A little bit. It is my invention, however. The mumpkatron can handle it. Probably."
―Doctor Surlee[src]

The blueprint of the bypasses and its coordinates.

The bypasses were invented by Doctor Surlee to teleport to certain areas of the playgrounds and Cog headquarters by saying certain SpeedChat phrases. This was a secret route that led to Lawbot Headquarters before the entrance in The Brrrgh at Polar Place opened. Doctor Surlee was placed on trial by the Chief Justice for creating these bypasses against the wishes of the Toon Council. After the opening of the entrance from Polar Place, the bypasses stopped working.

Resistance Salute (animation) Bossbot Headquarters
  • Before the release of Bossbot Headquarters, it was unknown where the last bypass on the blueprint leads or if it existed. There may have been a possibility that it would have lead to Bossbot Headquarters, but turns out that it did not.
  • Activating the bypass to Bossbot Headquarters, which was discovered on May 3, 2015, does not trigger a notification upon jumping onto a portable hole like the others, but a notification saying banquet access was granted would appear.


  • The trading card from Toontown Online describing Gyro Gearloose's "The 'Hole' Story" uses the same technobabble as described in Doctor Surlee's blueprint.
  • In the June 26, 2014 blog post, Doctor Surlee escaped the Lawbot Courthouse in the middle of his trial with another bypass. The trigger was "I'll be back later!" but this never worked in the game. It is also unknown where Doctor Surlee went after using that bypass.
  • The Chief Justice defined the portable holes as "'Portable Hole' network" when speaking to Doctor Surlee during his trial.
  • When the bypasses were once active, they would trigger cryptic messages upon using them in the Cog headquarters. These remarks are likely from the two voices, which they are referred to as "The Two".
  • The teleportation bypasses stopped working in-game some time before July 25, 2014. The exact date the bypasses stopped working is unknown.
  • On August 26, 2014, when Doctor Surlee was in Chip 'n Dale's MiniGolf, he stated "I had some teleportation holes, but the Toon Council took them down. I hope none of you used them!"[1]
  • It was said by Joey that all the locations were only a piece to the puzzle of the bypasses, but the puzzle itself has not been solved yet.
  • In the 1980's, the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" introduced the teleport hole, making Toons today use it.[citation needed]

03-CV-0012 SURLEE v. COUNCIL (decrypted)

Posted by Court Records Archive on June 26, 2014 04:06 PM

I've been informed to tell you that your next case has arrived.
Excellent. Trial name?
It's the Doctor.
Ohohoho, we indeed have a case on our hands. Have you began the court records?
I'm typing them as we speak.
Strike that from the records. Bring me my robes, and a new Cog to write them. Set the encryption to A=07 B=12.
Done and done.
Today's hearing represents the first case of a Toon on trial with close ties to the Toon Resistance and Anti-Cog Movements, the infamous inventor DOCTOR SURLEE.
What in the name of -- Oh, for the love of Walt. Perfect.
You have the right to remain silent, Toon. Now, all rise for the fair and honorable Chief Justice.
Enough, enough. Sit down and get back to work.
Hello, Chief!
Quiet, Doctor Surlee. You've been charged with violating the Toon Council's teleportation restrictions and creating your own bypasses into the "Portable Hole" network. How do you plead?
If I say guilty, can I go home sooner?
Your jokes won't save you here, Doctor.
How can you even put me on trial? The Council isn't here, let alone would they agree with going forth with this.
OVER-RULED! Backstabber, bring out the evidence. We'll start with a diary entry dated November 28th, 1998. Begin reading.
Now hang on--
"Day 37 of the Rewritten Experiment. Thus far, everything has been going smoothly. I've plopped the ideas of all of the neighborhoods into their heads, and it's nearly finished construction! Once again, however, The Toon Council won't give in on teleportation access. 'It's too dangerous', they say. 'We need to regulate it', they say. Bah, even with the idea ahead of time it wouldn't change their minds. Surely, it has some kinks here and there. Mostly harmless, though.
Of course... That's what they thought about the machines, too. That's what he thought about the machines. They were mostly harmless. And look where that got him. Look where that got me. Every day, every hour, every second we get closer to the Election. It's 5 years away yet I still can't get it out of my mind. Will I even be able to watch? I have to, the experiment has to go on. I'm not sure if I can bear to see it again. I can't warn them, I can't interfere. The best I can do is prepare them. Maybe the Trolleybots will help with that, and then again maybe they won't."
You can stop reading now.
I'll have no discussion as the evidence is being presented, Doctor Surlee. Continue, Backstabber.
"I've been questioning myself lately -- should I go through with it? If it weren't for them, we wouldn't have made the advancements that we've made today. Err, rather, 38 days ago. But if it weren't for them, he would still be here. If he knew what he was being erased for, would he think it is worth it? On the other hand, without the advancements we may have become like the machines ourselves. The Trolley would get repetitive, the gags would get old... Fighting them became a common pastime of Toontown. When I came back, though, it was too late. I'm not making that same mistake. That's what I keep telling myself. When I have to watch him go sad again -- because of ME -- I hope I can live up to it.
Right: Portable Holes. The Toon Council won't let toons teleport anywhere without earning it. Good for community service, I suppose. Even then, they won't let them teleport to the local barber shop or drop in for a quick ice cream cone. Once again, I had to put my own bypasses in. Against the rules? A little bit. It is my invention, however. The mumpkatron can handle it. Probably."
Guilty as charged. Now, where did you get that?...
The Chairman found quite a few things in that hunk of metal you call a "Lab". Which brings me to the next piece of evidence, the blueprint.
I see. Can I request to hear today's date?
The 26th of June.
Right. That makes sense. I wish it did, actually -- but no matter. The blueprint won't do you any good without the ba--
Oh, you have the back as well.
At long last, Doctor Surlee, I SENTENCE YOU TO-
Hang on, one more thing. You know the funny part of this, I actually have one of those bypasses right up here as well. See, I just stand up right here...
Doctor Surlee, I demand-
And all I have to say...
Don't try it.
"I'll be back later!"
A black hole then proceeded to appear under the feet of the accused, taking him out of sight. The screaming afterwards has been strike from the record by order of the Chief Justice.
No matter, we'll be able to convict the Doctor soon enough. Send the records to the media. Legal Eagles, who is next on the docket?
A bear by the name of Bumpy Bumblebehr, your honor.
