Teetsi is a major antagonist in DreamWorks' 17th full-length animated feature film Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. He is Makunga's henchman and Alex's wrestling opponent.
He was voiced by Fred Tatasciore, who also voiced the Fossas in the first film.
When Makunga was joyful that Alex returned, Teetsi expressed surprise and said he thought that Makunga hated Zuba. Makunga told his henchman 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's unknown what 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.
