This article about a fictional version of Nikola Tesla in the Thrilling Adventure Hour segment The Cross-Time Adventures of Colonel Tick-Tock. For the actual Nikola Tesla, see Nikola Tesla.
Nikola Tesla is a scientist and inventor. He often invites Thomas Edison to collaborate, despite Edisons' rude demeanor and penchant for murdering Tesla's cats. Edison also often steals Tesla's work, or takes all the credit for experiments the two do together.
Despite the way Edison treats Tesla, Tesla continues to allow Edison to visit in hopes that Edison will want to truly collaborate together. The second time Colonel Tick-Tock visits Tesla, Edison has not changed. Tick-Tock attempts to illustrate the futility of Tesla's plight with drawings of Lucy tricking Charlie Brown into trying to kick a football time and again.
