The Mighty B! Wiki

The Gorillas are an all-male scout troop who make their only appearance in "Gorillas in the Midst." The troop is known for embracing traditional masculinity to the extreme, often wrestling each other and doing death defying stunts to prove membership.

They are in essence the antithesis of the Honeybees, with presumed troop leader Murdock looking down on the girls and looking forward to "crushing them" at the steak eating contest.

Bessie, disguising herself as Ben, attempts to join the Gorillas, and nearly succeeds; however, it's ultimately Happy who joins under Ben's identity.


In order to join the Gorillas, a rigorous program is held, testing a boy's physical capabilities while also attempting to avoid hazards. Those who fail are thrown into a pile. Bessie manages to pass all these tests, which range from an obstacle course, fighting a lion, wrestling and driving monster trucks. According to Murdock, the last task required for membership is de-poisoning snakes and riding a dirt bike at the same time.

Analogous to the Honeybees selling taffy, the Gorillas offer an energy drink called "Gorilla Sweat" as well as beef jerky. Murdock mentions this is done so they can afford to go volcano diving.



  • As Murdock has leg hair, it can be assumed the Gorillas are at least a few years older than the Honeybees.
  • Unlike other troops in the show (the Honeybees and The Beavers), there does not seem to be a badge system for the Gorillas.
