| Character Information
Teri is a slightly crumpled paper cutout of a bear. Her design resembles that of a school kid doodling on a piece of folder paper, and then cutting it out – some parts of her coloring are messier. She is usually seen wearing a blazer, which is commonly used for school uniforms or formal occasions.
In Season 2, she acquires eyebrows, though the rest of her design remains unchanged.
In "The Origins: Part Two," she is shown to be smaller and her facial features are crudely drawn, resembling a child's drawing.
Teri is a hypochondriac, meaning that she has a habit of believing that she has a number of ailments that are more than likely all in her head, such as believing to have gone deaf because no one had spoken to her in the past five minutes. Because of this, Teri spends most of her time in the nurse's office.
She is a germaphobe, as seen in "The Words" and "The Virus;" as such, she goes to extreme lengths to protect herself from potential diseases and usually urges her classmates to do the same. Although kind and sensitive at heart, she frequently comes across as self-centered due to her fears.

Much like her relationship with Gumball and Darwin, Teri always collides with the nurse seeing her treating to the students wrong and overact with her, which makes the nurse usually ignore Teri more than she usually does with the other students.

- Her name is a pun on the fact that you tear paper easily.
- In her concept art, Teri was wider, and un-crumpled. She also lacked a collar and buttons on her dress.
- In the early reel, Teri was male, as he was blown into the girls' bathroom, eliciting quite a commotion. Gumball also refers to Teri as "Paper Boy."
- A writer of the show suggests that Teri is skilled at paper craft and origami. This is supported by her reading a book on origami on three occasions: in "The Quest," "The Mystery," and "The Vision."
- Because Teri is made out of paper, she is very fragile and physically weak. An example was when she "slapped" Gumball in "The Party."
- She may like Leslie, since she was with him in "The Party." She may also like Clayton, since she blushed at him in "The Skull".

- In "The Words," it is revealed that if Teri stands in the sunlight, you can see "inside of her."
- In "The Virus," it is revealed that Teri's mother is a doctor, which may explain why she is such a germaphobe.

- It is revealed in "The Origins: Part Two" that when she was younger, her face was crudely drawn.
- Her parents made their first appearance in "The Potato", although they were seen as origami because of Gumball and Darwin.
