Storyline Edit

Role in Time Tangled Island Edit

According to a newspaper you can read on Time Tangled Island, Professor Pendulum had just recently created two successful time machines - one for the past, and one for the future. In celebration of his success, he's taking a trip to Shark Tooth Island.

Role in Shark Tooth Island Edit

You will find him in the Tourism Center on Shark Tooth Island. His appearance there is one of the few displays of Island Continuity.

While he doesn't have an apparent evil agenda, his time machines are what puts the entire world in peril. You as the player have to go back in time and fix mistakes that Professor Pendulum caused. He appears to be unaware of the whole incident as he is on vacation.

If you meet him in the Tourism Center, you will also find a similar looking female character above him. She has the same skin tone and hair color as him. You can read more about her here. She is presumed to be some sort of relative to Peter.

He has not appeared anywhere other than the two times in the game listed above.

Trivia Edit

  • Professor Pendulum's name is a play on the word pendulum. A pendulum is a mass suspended from a fixed support so that it swings freely back and forth under the influence of gravity. It is commonly used to regulate various devices, especially clocks, hence the connection to Prof. Pendulum.
  • His name also is alliterated, meaning that all the words start with the same letter - in this case the letter p - Professor Peter P. Pendulum.
