Ted is a giant monster that resides in Monstropolis.
When Mike and Sulley headed to work one morning, Mike was dissapointed when Sulley made him walk to work, as he would have preferred to drive in his car. After listening to Mike complain, Sulley saw Ted at the crosswalk, and used him as an example as someone who walked to work. However, Mike countered his point with the fact that Ted could get to work within five steps due to his large size.
The only part that is seen of Ted are his feet and the bottom of his legs, which are dark green and have a "scale" appearance. His light green toenails are large and pointy.
- In the DVD commentary for Monsters, Inc., Pete Docter said that Ted was supposed to sound like Godzilla, but they couldn't get the rights to use his roar, so instead they went the opposite way and put in a chicken's sound.
- In one of the film's outtakes, Ted is replaced by Rex from the Toy Story franchise.
