Yeah, technically Hasbro went with "Dr. Hooves" instead of "Doctor Whooves". Although "Whooves" has actually made it to some merchandise (usually the older ones though).

Interestingly the Gameloft game was first updated from "Time Turner" to Doctor "Whooves" before it was changed to "Dr. Hooves" but there was a time when it was briefly changed back to Doctor "Whooves" (and this was used in the description of the upcoming quests).

I don’t know why Hasbro even bothers since the BBC has clearly shown they know about it and don’t mind. Doctor Whooves has appeared on an article on the Doctor Who official site and in trivia when one of the episodes was shown in theaters.

"Dr. Whooves"? But I thought they couldn’t use that name as it would be a copyright violation.

The staff is smart enough to remove the "W" from the name. Anything related to doctor Who is mere coincidence now, even when the references are so many that is ridiculous: 3D glasses, the scarf, the bowtie, "allons-y", the face of boe, the lab full of wibbly wobbly timey whimey stuff…

"Time Turner" hasn’t actually been used by Hasbro for a long time. Possibly not even since the year it was first introduced. It wasn’t long before the Gameloft game was updated to replace "Time Turner". I have no idea why Derpibooru continues to autotag a name that only existed because Hasbro wasn’t sure they could use the fan name at the time.
