- Sulley: "Hey, Ted! Good morning!"
Sulley: "See that, Mikey? Ted's walking to work!"
Mike: "Big deal! Guy takes five steps and he's there."
- —Sulley and Mike about Ted.
Ted is a gigantic, scaly Godzilla-like monster and only his legs are visible in his only appearance.
At the beginning of the film, when Mike and Sulley are walking to work, they encounter him while crossing the road. Sulley has to shout up at him to say good morning. As Ted crosses the street, the ground shakes because of his size. Sulley uses Ted as an example of someone else who is walking to work, which Mike was complaining about.
- In the DVD commentary for Monsters, Inc., Pete Docter said that Ted was supposed to sound like Godzilla, but they weren't able to get the rights to use his roar from Toho, so instead they went the opposite way and made him cluck like a chicken.
- In one of the film's outtakes, Ted is replaced by Rex.
- Ted shares the same first name with Ted Pauley, a Scarer at Monsters, Inc.
