TOTO is a Hawaiian word for a child, which means “one is born”. The term is also commonly used to express the pure happiness and hope that a new infant experience. The name TOTO actually came from the first son of the King Kamehameha I, who was named Toto. This was because the royal family had no male children of their own so it was common to refer to any newborn boy who was born during this time as a “toto”.
It wasn’t until many years later that the TOTO name came into use when a boy was called Harry. Although the meaning had been changed somewhat by Hollywood and changed to more positive in the subsequent books, Harry was still referred to as TOTO in the Harry Potter series. It was only in the last book that TOTO was actually given a proper name, as opposed to simply “Harry” which was often how it was referred to in the earlier books. Many fans are eager to see TOTO appear again in future books because they want to see Harry, not Harry Potter, named after a lovely wizard.
In the sequel to J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling revealed that she had decided to name TOTO after the great wizard, Gandalf the Grey, because he offered to defeat a monster named Vanquil. When the Great wizard arrived on the scene, he fought the creature tooth and nail, but failed. As a result, Vanquil was forced to withdraw from the world, but not before telling Harry about a prophecy that would allow him to defeat TOTO if he gave up his life. This became the basis for TOTO being able to defeat the lion, Tin Man.
TOTO did not disappoint its fans. They went on to battle the troll known as Bullywoo in the third book of the series. During this battle, TOTO performed some amazing stunts that were really impressive. One such stunt involved a large rock and a small Tin Man, as well as a large bear. The three of them chained themselves to the large bear and the Tin Man on top of the tree while the large rock and the small Tin Man walked around. When the Tin Man started to slip away, TOTO chased him until they both fell off the tree.
For many years, TOTO continued to perform their exciting music, and their fan base grew. Eventually TOTO’s manager came up with the idea of having a music video to promote the band and the artist. The band obliged and in the video they showed their range of skills and abilities and even showed off some of their unusual talents such as juggling. The video for this song went viral and went so far that it was watched by over one hundred and twenty million people. This was a remarkable moment for the American rock band and TOTO became known as the “Tin Man” in North America.
Over the years TOTO has had numerous singles that have become hits such as “Slipping Into Sleep” and “Cantankerous”. The most popular single of all time, however, is their cover of David Bowie’s classic song,” HIT LIST”. Just as David Bowie was the main inspiration for TOTO, so was Tommy Lee Jones the main inspiration for the hit cover. Some people may not remember this, but TOTO actually covered the original version of this track on their album Cover Me Now. Jones also sang on several other hits for TOTO, including the hit album Rock and Roll with David Bowie.
