Gleek is an elasti-monk from the planet Exxor.
An Exxorian carnival owner named Dentwil purchased Gleek and made him the star attraction of his traveling show. While touring with the carnival, Gleek met the young Exxorian shape-shifter, Zan and Jayna. Recognizing their unhappiness with carnival life, Gleek helped them to flee the circus and escape from Exxor. He accompanied the twins to Earth where he shared in many of their adventures as one of the Super Friends.
