He was kidnapped by Dantinis after he witnessed the resurrection of Baron Dante. After Croc defeats Baron Dante, The Professor Gobbo takes him to his plane and Croc flies away to his family.
This Gobbo is set apart by his grey hair, glasses, and white coat.
The game starts off with the inventor building a plane and then wrapping up the day's work when all of a sudden he discovers some Dantinis performing a ritual. He curiously examines the ritual, then sees Baron Dante being brought back from the N'th Dimension, soon towering over him. He runs but gets ambushed by some Dantinis who have come to see their master.
From here on, it's hard to know what happens but he remained a captive of Baron Dante until Croc used the plane that he built in an attempt to defeat the evil magician. Although unsuccessful, he was able to escape and meet Croc in Bride of the Dungeon of Defright and think of a plan to defeat the Baron whilst Croc freed the other captive Gobbos and defeated Goo Man Chu. He eventually came up with an idea to create a portal using the Colored Crystals to put Baron Dante back in the n'th dimension, as they were the source of Dante's Power.
The main story concludes with Dante stealing the Crocodile Eggs and hiding them in his twisted worlds.
- Professor Gobbo is mentioned, but not seen in the Game Boy Color adaption of the game. He invented the Robo Gobbo.
