- “Duke Caboom, Canada's greatest stuntman.”
- ―Duke Caboom
Duke Caboom is a 1970s toy based on Canada's greatest daredevil and stuntman. With his trusty Caboom stunt-cycle, Duke has confidence and swagger as he shows off all of his stunt poses. But despite being a toy emulating Canada’s greatest stuntman, Duke has never been able to do the stunts as advertised by his own toy commercial. He’s been forced to relive his failures stuck on the shelves of the antique store.
Role in the film
He is first seen at Tin Toy's party when he encounters Woody and Bo Peep. He gets Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Bo Peep, Giggle McDimples, Ducky and Bunny to the antique store to rescue Forky, but when they run into Gabby Gabby and her troupe, they exit the store and Duke crashes. Woody begs him and everyone to return to the store, but he and everyone leave and give up.
After Woody gives his voice box to Gabby Gabby, Duke returns with the gang and gets them to ground. Duke was happily proud that Gabby Gabby has gotten an owner which inspired him to stay with Bo Peep and his new found friends. Duke was present when Woody returns to his gang but he choose to stay with them instead of returning to his owner. After Woody said goodbye his friends, Buzz Lightyear and Forky, Duke and everyone begin their quest in finding lost toys find homes.
In a mid-credits scene, Duke Caboom is present and surprised when Ducky and Bunny pretend to have laser eyes.
