Merv is a male koala that can be found wandering Burramugee Town in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue.

Merv has a hard life. He is always worrying about Boonie when he disappears. There could be a positive in this though, because he has got very close to Boonie`s teacher Shiela at all those parent/teacher interviews.


Merv is Boonie's father, and his wife passed away at an unknown time. Merv is now trying to date Shiela the school teacher.


  • "G'day Ty!"
  • "Boonie's been a read handful lately, it's unbelievable."
  • "Thanks for always finding Boonie for me. But if you happen to find Shiela's phone number -- uh -- nevermind."
  • "I wonder if.. Shiela would like to go to the pictures with me?"
