Flynt and Mungo are Terk and Tarzan's friends from the 1999 Disney animated feature film Tarzan. They appeared again in the second film in the franchise and in Tarzan & Jane. They also appeared in the animated television series The Legend of Tarzan.



Both Mungo and Flynt are very playful, as shown when Flynt made Mungo hit himself over and over again. However, when they were younger, they were shown to be mean and slightly cruel towards Tarzan especially, as they wanted to exclude him from their activities and complained loudly when he said he wanted to come along. Eventually, they grow to respect him after seeing him jumping off the cliff to go after an elephant hair.

Physical appearance[]

Mungo is an obese and medium gorilla and has a medium gray fur color.

Flynt is short and slender and has a gray-black fur color.



In their first appearance, Flynt and Mungo appear together with Terk, going toward a waterfall where the elephants are. Before Terk arrives, they are shown playfully hitting each other.

Soon after, Tarzan arrives and Flynt and Mungo begin to complain loudly about him being there. Terk tells Tarzan he can hang out with them if he gets a hair from an elephant being sarcastic hoping it would get rid of him, but Tarzan takes her seriously and jumps into the lake. Flynt and Mungo are amused by Tarzan's antics and Flynt tells Terk that if he survives, she should bring him around more often. The gorillas go and get a closer look.

Shortly thereafter, they look more closely at Tarzan catching a hair from an elephant. However, Tarzan, unfortunately, makes elephants panic at seeing him, in which they stampede toward Flynt, Mungo, and Terk, fleeing. Flynt and Mungo arrive where the other gorillas were eating termites, and despair, screaming that the blame for the elephant stampede was not theirs.

As years pass, they begin to be more friendly with Tarzan and soon become great friends. When Tarzan fights Sabor, Flynt, and Mungo are seen rooting on for Tarzan along with the other gorillas. After Tarzan kills the evil leopard, they congratulate him along with the rest of the gorillas.

They, along with Terk, Tantor, and some other gorillas, begin to look for Tarzan who recently disappeared, and arrive at the human trio's campsite and proceed to trash it, playing music on various human objects They find in camp ("Trashin' the Camp").

Tarzan returns Jane Porter to camp but departs with the other animals before Professor Porter and Clayton arrive. Sometime later, Tarzan shows the humans the nesting site. Flynt and Mungo remain there, watching humans. After the humans leave, few disagreements occurred and Clayton and his men back in place and begin to capture the gorillas, including Flynt and Mungo, Tarzan arrives and manages to stop the plan of Clayton.

The Legend of Tarzan[]

Flynt and Mungo return in the television series, usually as comic relief and Terk's closest buddies just next to Tarzan and Tantor. Here they're noticeably more bumbling and dimwitted compared to their debut appearance, likely due to years of self-inflicted head trauma from them playing their childhood game "Stop hitting yourself". The brothers don't mean any harm, but likely as not, their dumb behavior is bound to give Tarzan some serious headaches as he flies to save them—and protect the family—from danger. Since they spend all their time together, being separated will cause them to freak out.
