Tony the Talking Clock is the second "Teacher" in the Don't Hug Me I'm Scared Series.


Tony is an anthropomorphic clock, with a black rim, blue face, white gloves, a golden-yellow bowtie with red stripes near the end, red shoes with yellow socks, and red "clock hands" on his face positioned to look like a mustache.
