Monty the Minotaur is a character from the Disney Junior series Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He is a large Minotaur and the guardian of the treasure of Argos Island. He is voiced by Jim Cummings.



Much of Monty's past hadn't been revealed until "Minotaur Mix-Up!", where Monty revealed that he was once a meek scrawny human who had a rather miserable time at sea. As a young buccaneer, he was trained in the ways of a pirate, so that he would one day become a feared buccaneer. However, according to Monty, he was a somewhat pitiful pirate during his training and seemed hopeless for many years. It wasn't until he came across Argos Island in his travels and when he tried to take the treasure he was turned into a mighty Minotaur. Monty didn't miss his meek human form and felt his new appearance made him feel more like a pirate.

Years later Monty would serve under Captain Buzzard Bones for many years ago as his first-mate until he manages to get a ship of his own. Sometime after this event, Monty would return to Argos Island to protect the treasure from thieving pirates.
