Doctor Toboggans vs The Memphis Zombies – a Multimedia Retrospective

On April 24th Doctor Harold Toboggans, a previously thought fictional figure, made a live appearance at the third annual Memphis Zombie Massacre to promote his latest therapy product Zombies Anonymous.

It was a big hit as far as these things go, breaking all approval rating records among the unreal as well as the undead.

The overall course of the evening was as follows:

He also received a great deal of praise as a humanitarian. Mostly from himself:

However, upon meeting the brave souls of the Shelby Memphis Zombie Response Force, some ulterior motives were revealed:

Between bloodthirsty zombies and ruthless vigilantes, how Doctor Toboggans came out unscathed is a profoundly saddening mystery. The very worst part, at least for me, was this moment here when at last I thought I was rid of him….

Only to be denied.

I have lot’s more Memphis Zombie media hidden in safe locations across the internet, but you look like a trustworthy bunch so I’ll let you know it’s here, here, here, and here.

    Hah! Brent these were GREAT!

    But can you ask the Doc why he isn’t answering my calls? I know the last check bounced, but I’ve got a lot more of them … and at some point he’s bound to get lucky.

    (Try National City next time. I’ve cashed scanned-in cereal box tops there.)

    • Brent says:

      I have found from personal experience that lack of cash flow is the best way to be pronounced cured by our dear doctor.

      A trust fund, on the other hand, would guarantee therapeutic security for generations of your descendants.

  2. Youthful One says:

    I am impressed with the good Dr.’s zombifarian efforts.

    I am mystified at the good Dr.’s ever-changing accent.

    • Brent says:

      I thought it was just the effort of trying to empathize with the mid-southern undead.

      I’m sure he’s not used to feeling for anyone other than his bank account.

  3. Gilbert says:

    He really do it..

  4. ~Deb says:

    I’m proud of Dr. T for not flinching when eerie old man backpack entered his personal space with an appetite for nose hairs.

    • Brent says:

      That guy was something else. For a minute I thought he was just the man to finally finish off the doctor…one piece at a time.

      But no, Toboggans survived to annoy another day.

  5. Jackie says:

    I AM “x marks the victim”!!!! It’s definitely cool to see us on camera, and with the coolest(?) doc ever!

    • Brent says:

      I’m glad you recovered, zombieism is a nasty curse to be stuck with.

      The halitosis is the worst part I think.

      Congratulations also on being so photogenic.

  6. I didn’t even know about the zombiefest. I hate that I missed it. Human flesh beats swine flu BBQ any day!

    • Brent says:

      I hear that Corky’s is testing out a new anti-viral seasoning rub.

      It would probably work on people too, or zombies for that matter.

  7. C. Fraser says:

    The Dr. is a hero. And brave. And very stylish; I loved that green jacket.

    • Brent says:

      I don’t know about brave…I’d say motivated. The undead have a lot of unspent cash on their hands.

  8. Alex L. says:

    Come on Brent he is brave, and handsome, and capable of mind control I’ve heard… The Doctor is a truly great man.

    • Brent says:

      Oh no Alex, Doctor Toboggans is far beyond great. He is greatly.

      Greatly overinflated.
      Greatly dreaded.
      Greatly evil incarnate.

    • ~Debbie says:

      Be very careful Alex L. when calling Dr. T handsome. He may just charge you a hundred dollar distraction fee!

  9. rjlight says:

    All my zombie friends were telling me about this but I couldn’t attend. Mr. T. always finds the perfect audience.

    • Brent says:

      He does always seem to find people of his own caliber to associate with. I think this was the most fun he’s had since he was kicked out of the Midnight Telemarketer and Middle-Eastern Dictator club.

      He was always pretty quite about what happened there, but I guess even they have standards.

  10. Howard says:

    I apologize for missing this in my feeder when upon its release. Of course, it was two days before my birthday so I was probably in a drunken, suicidal spiral from the thought of turning 42.

  11. Steve says:

    Brilliant. And to think that at one time Dr. Toboggans entertained thoughts of retirement. I could not imagine a world without the good doctor. Clearly there is no one more qualified to cure zombification.

  12. That was funny! :) Keep it up Zombie therapist!
