|~ Teetsi to Alex.|
Teetsi is a minor antagonist in DreamWorks' 17th full-length animated feature film Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. He is Makunga's bodyguard and Alex's wrestling opponent.
He was voiced by Fred Tatasciore, who also played 8 in 9, Mandarin in The Invincible Iron Man, Poseidon in God of War, Major Force in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Witch Doctor in LEGO Hero Factory, Tony Alpert in Battlefield Hardline, CLU TRON: Uprising and TRON: Evolution and Cerberus in Scoob!.
When Makunga was joyful that Alex returned, Teetsi expressed surprise and said he thought that Makunga hated Zuba. Makunga told his henchmen that he did and was going to use Alex as a ploy to get rid of Zuba.
Later, Makunga tells Alex to choose Teetsi as his wrestling opponent, tricking Alex into believing Teetsi would be an easy opponent. During the fight, Alex thought that the passage was a dance-off and Teesti easily defeated him, being given a black eye in the process.
Later, on Makunga's orders, Teetsi put the Hat Of Shame on Alex's head.
It is unknown what has happened to him after Makunga's defeat, as Teetsi was never seen or heard from again in the rest of the film, and he did not appear in the third film either.
Teetsi is very pugnacious and ornery. He gets angry very easily and enjoys fighting. It is also implied that Teetsi enjoys sleeping and can get easily provoked if awoken.
Teetsi has the appearance of an average lion, only he is noticeably larger and more muscular than others and he appears to grow huge muscles at will.
