Teri is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. She is a hypochondriac, and can usually be found in the Nurse's office. Despite her being a bit self-absorbed, she's a very nice girl.


Teri seems to be a slightly crumpled version of a cut out bear. Her design resembles that of a school kid doodling on a piece of folder paper, and then cutting it out. She is usually seen wearing a blazer, which is commonly used for school uniforms or formal occasions.


Teri is a hypochondriac, meaning that she has a habit of believing that she has a number of ailments that are more than likely all in her head, such as believing to have gone deaf because no-one had spoken to her in the past five minutes. Because of this, Teri spends most of her time in the nurse's office. Aside from this, Teri seems to be a member of the Elmore Junior High cheerleading squad and is also one of the Treehouse Girls. She also seems to be a bit self-centered, but once you manage to get past this, Teri is a very kind and sensitive soul.

  • In "The Words", it is revealed that Teri is a germaphobe and that if Teri stands in the light, you can see inside of her.
