Toto’s innovative toilets offer a range of amenities. Some of the more unique features include heated seats, remote control bidets, automatic lids, and a deodorizer. Toto toilets have become a staple of Japanese businesses and homes. They are even being used at top restaurants in the United States, including N/Naka in Los Angeles and Odo in New York. And because of their high-class quality, they are used in high-end hotels and restaurants across the world.
In addition to the original Wizard of Oz film, Toto has appeared in several books and television series. He appears in the novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, as well as the film adaptations, Emerald City and Dorothy’s Return. Toto is voiced by Chris Cox, and he is a German Shepherd. The name Toto derives from the Munja’kin word for dog. Toto is a dog that appears in many different movies and television shows, including the NBC television series Emerald City and the 2002 animated feature film Lost in Oz.
In toto means “in whole” or “in total.” This Latin phrase has been used since Roman times and made its way into the English language hundreds of years ago. Many learned books of the period were written in Latin. While in toto and in total are often used interchangeably, both phrases have the same meaning of “considering everything”.
Toto’s eponymous debut album was released in 1978. Their fourth album, Toto IV, was both critically and commercially successful. The band became one of the most popular music groups of their time and was the highest-selling in its field. “Hold the Line” and “Rosanna” are some of their most popular songs. Toto split in 2008 after Steve Lukather announced his departure. The remaining members then separated.
