Terk is the sassy little gorilla from the 1999 Walt Disney animated film, “Tarzan.” She can also be seen in the films, “Tarzan and Jane,” “Tarzan 2,” and “The Lion King 1 ½.” In television shows she can be seen in “The Legend of Tarzan.” In video games she can be found in the Kingdom Hearts series. Finally, in other merchandise she can be found in toys, books, pins, Disney art, and clothing.

She lives in the jungle with the rest of the gorillas. Her friends include Jane, Kerchak, Kala, Tantor, Mungo, Flynt, Archimedes, Tarzan, and the rest of the good Disney characters. Her enemies include John Clayton, Zugor, Sabor, Tublat, and the rest of the evil Disney villains.


Terk is a small, chunky gorilla. She has light and dark grey fur with a spiky mohawk. She also has large eyes and tiny ears. She is very loud, opinionated, but extremely loyal.

She was animated by Michael Surrey. She has been voiced by a few people over the years such as Audrey Wasilewski, Brenda Grate, Rosie O’Donnell, and April Winchell.


Terk can be found in Disney parks around the world as a meet and greet character. She can also be seen in attractions and shows such as the Parade of the Stars, Tarzan Rocks!, The Golden Mickeys, and Mickey’s Soundsational Parade. Two parades she could be found in that are now gone are Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade, and Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade. She can also be found during the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. You can also find her in various Disney on Ice shows that have a “Tarzan” theme in them.
