Monterey Jack is a male character from Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers. He was initially voiced by Peter Cullen, with Jim Cummings later assuming the role. Monty and his sidekick Zipper decided to join the group in their detective work. Monty can be quick to anger if he, or his friends, has been offended. This trait sometimes leaves him ready to do battle with a much larger opponent, and the others having to calm him down. Monty loves to tell stories of his travels, even if the others often stop his reminiscing. Monty is most frequently found in the company of either Zipper or Dale, whose fun-loving nature matches his own. He also seems to consider Gadget to be something of a surrogate daughter, most likely due to his long friendship with her late father.
Role in the series
Monterey Jack, or Monty as he is often referred to, spent much of his life traveling the world with Zipper. He joined the Rangers after his home was destroyed by Fat Cat. Monty is Australian, and often uses pseudo-Australian phrases in his speech, such as "Stripe me starkers". He is the oldest of the rangers, as it is revealed early on that he was friends with Gadget's father, and knew Gadget as a child. He's prone to reminiscing about his travel, though he is usually stopped by the others.
As the largest and strongest of the group, Monty services as the muscle of the group. He can be quick to anger, often forcing the others to keep him out of trouble. He is also the teams' travel expert and knows how to help with making the travel arrangements. However, he possesses a deadly fear of cats. He also possesses a near addiction to cheese, which surfaces in the form of "cheese-attacks" where he is almost hypnotically drawn to cheese, ignoring all around him.
Monty is the only character known to have two living parents: Cheddarhead Charlie and Camembert Kate, both who are known to be travelers like Monty. While Monty seems to idolize his father, his relationship with his mother was initially strained because she tended to baby him.
- Monty's name and those of his relatives, all come from various cheeses.
