Toadbert's Drawing is a key item in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. It was drawn by Toadbert, who lost his memory and sketched the memories he still had left. It can be viewed inside Stuffwell. It is drawn very poorly and has dirt and mud over it. The Mario Bros. receive it inside Yoob's Belly in Yoshi's Island. The wiping of dirt and mud off Toadbert's Drawing makes it the only use of touch controls for the Nintendo DS in the entire game.

Later in Star Shrine, the player has to clean off the mud and dirt by using the stylus, revealing two Princess Shroobs. Just as Toadbert is about to explain, the Elder Shrooboid comes out of nowhere and turns Toadbert and Kylie Koopa into Shroob mushrooms. The two princesses are later revealed to be Princess Shroob and the Elder Princess Shroob. The item is never used again, although it remains in the Mario Bros.' inventory with the in-game description "Toadbert's Odd Drawing."
