Old Toot Toot is a character in the The Green Mile. He is a trustee who stood in for execution rehearsals, and sold snacks to the guards and the prisoners. He had a unique sense of humour, and sometimes made the guards laugh.

During rehearsal for the execution of Arlen Bitterbuck, when he was asked what he would like to say for his Final Statement, he said, ¨Yeah. I want a fried chicken dinner with gravy on the taters, and I want to shit in your hat. I got to have Mae West sit on my face because I´m one horny motherfucker.¨ At this point all the guards except Paul (Who was annoyed by the unprofessionalism) began to laugh hysterically. He joked around some more after Brutus rehearsed to give the order to "execute" him. Toot-Toot pretended to be electrocuted and cracked jokes like ¨I´m a doomed Tom Turkey!¨ and ¨This is a shocking experience!¨

He joked during the rehearsal, and was the only one to do so, as he was only present in the rehearsal for Arlen Bitterbuck. The character is portrayed by the late Harry Dean Stanton in the 1999 film adaptation.
