His father was a traveling salesman for Folgers before becoming a carpenter. Terry has two siblings: a sister two years younger, and a brother ten years younger.

When Gilliam graduated from high school, he attended Occidental College, at first studying physics, then switching to fine arts before finally majoring in political science. Gilliam contributed to the college magazine, Fang, becoming the editor during his junior year and turning it into a tribute to Kurtzman, to whom Terry later sent copies.
