Can you remember what you were doing when you got this knot?
~ Gordon, asking Georgina about getting her neck tied into a knot.

Doctor Gordon reading his book of knots.

Doctor Gordon Gorilla is the famous doctor of Africa who helps animals having problems. He is the uncle of Tickles and Giggles.

Physical Appearance

He is a lowland gorilla (hence his name) with purple skin.


He is usually quite helpful and very nice to any animal in problem. For example, he helped Georgina sing "Al" (backwards of "La") to get rid of her tangled neck. Another example is when he asks the animals why Toby can't leave his home, but the problem is the animals are confused with him. In his last appearance, Gordon helps Chuckles try to spread laughter to the bored animals by giving him his book of laughter.
