Chuckling associate of Harlem crime boss Mr. Big (Yaphet Kotto), portrayed by character actor Julius Harris in Live and Let Die. Literally the drug kingpin’s right-hand man—he has a grasping hook for a right hand—Tee Hee lost his real hand in a fight with Old Albert, a Louisiana crocodile.
In a climactic battle with Bond (Roger Moore) aboard a train destined for New York City, Tee Hee has the upper hand, until 007 manages to grab a pair of scissors and snip the wires controlling his hook. Unable to remove himself from a precarious position, Tee Hee is kicked out of the train window. A similar train compartment fight between James Bond and Jaws (Richard Kiel) was featured in The Spy Who Loved Me.
