"Ah yes, Velcome, Velcome."
Rupert J. Tinglebottom is the head of Tinglebottom Industries — the world's leading producer of Tingle Serum. He has many employees that work for him, such as Vincent Squingilly, Agent Tinglesmith, and O.G. Tingles as well as an entire army of Tingle Droids. He can often be seen making Tingle Serum as well as maintenance repairs and upgrades on the facility's droids among other smaller but equally important tasks. In ASMR Experiment For Tingle Science ▓ Role Play, while inspecting the patient's scalp, the Professor notes that he used to be a professional hair stylist. Theories suggest that his discovery of tingle serum came from his past profession in a relaxing field.
Professor Albert Tinglestein
In the early days of the channel (early 2016), Prof. Tinglebottom went by Albert Tinglestein in some videos, but in others would go by Albert Tinglebottom. The last name varied between the two in just about every video up until ASMR Tingles in Suspension where the name "Tinglebottom" stuck. After some confusion among the audience, Dr. T reassured fans that Professor Tinglestein and Tinglebottom were the same person. Later, the full name, Rupert J. Tinglebottom, was set in stone.
About once a year, Professor Tinglebottom would mention the start of operation 20XX (19, 20, 21). The goals of these operations are never explicitly known, but it can be speculated that they are meant to be movements to grow or overhaul the channel in a sort of way.
Most prevalent would be Operation 2019— the most heavily-planned and hyped operation to date. The first instance of Operation 2019 can be seen here.
- The Professor often wears scrubs as well as a headlamp and a stethoscope which Dr. T has stated to be broken.
- He has a slight German accent, as he pronounces most of his W's as V's.
