HYENAS by CrazyCrocuta HYENAS by CrazyCrocuta
This is what I've been working on for a few months now. :D I thought I'd have more by now so I held off, but oh well. I plan on drawing every hyena from every cartoon that I can think of (or anyone knows) to group them into a collection. Just to show hyenas aren't as obscure in cartoons as people think. :)

Some designs, such as Giggles, actually made me smile. :giggle: Not too often you see a hyena with his coloration. Then there's Rufus, one of the strangest ones I've ever seen. :XD: There's not many here for now, but that'll change as I draw and color more, and they will be added to the list. If you know of any, please let me know! :D

I like #4 on the middle, which this was Tabaqui! Some think that he's jackal, and some others think that he's a hyena.

Very cool idea! I think, my favourite hyena here is Shenzi.

Wait a minute! Shonen Jump did make the jackals the wrong version, which the jackals did strongly resembled striped hyenas. And then the hyenas were called in this series as ,"jackals." In which the real Tabaqui is a jackal, while Shonen Jump's Tabaqui is a hyena, but his kinfolk were called "jackals." Oh well...

But, I found out that Tabaqui is a hyena, which his species's name was revealed, and better than the hyena version of the jackals from Shonen Mowgli, well because of the show Simba The King Lion. It makes differences!

You're missing Zig, the Iron Butt Monkey Hyena from the French Xilam cartoon shorts Zig and Sharko.

There are still a lot of hyenas I need to include in this, they're just slowly coming along. :) I doubt this will ever be finished as well, since I'm finding more hyenas in shows, along with people helping me.

You don't really see many hyenas as heroic or even as the main character much, they're usually the villains or just for comic relief.

Ironic that the poorly animated Mowgli series was the only one to get the design completely right.

He can be seen at the 8:27 mark in the video. Just so you know.

By the way, I just watched the My Gym Partner's A Monkey episode and loved it. Rufus is just plain adorable and I wanted to hug him sooo bad when he was crying. Windsor Gorilla comforting him as he cried was a very touching scene. I'm also convinced that Nurse Gazelle is pure evil for wanting to shave a traumatized, heartbroken child for her own amusement rather than caring for his well-being. She should be fired from the school and have her license revoked.

so...who's the last one? (the light grey one...) I don't see it mentioned in the list...and what about the ones from Kimba the White Lion (not that I've ever seen it, but I read about it)

I have a superhero story that I'm trying to develop, where both the main heroine and the main villain (and some others) are hyenas.

Awesome. I absolutely adore Hardy Har Har, every time I see him I wanna hug the poor guy. They actually have plushies of him and I think I'd get one someday. I missed the My Gym Partners A Monkey hyena episode. Where can I watch it? Hopefully it gets uploaded to youtube soon. Rufus sounds like a lovable character. You should consider adding Ed from Ursula Vernon's webcomic Digger to the list even though he isn't in an animated cartoon. Also, there's Harchi from the obscure French CGI cartoon Oscar's Oasis.

I actually have a spotted hyena OC character named Chase Aquafang. He's part of this idea I have for a show called Hero Safari I made up. Chase is an albino runt with ice blue eyes and a pink nose and he's part of this team called the Safari Heroes. He's the brainy, adorkable gadget geek of the bunch who is extremely sarcastic and wisecracking but kind-hearted and sensitive. Their leader is Tammy Aerostripe, a badass punk rocker female zebra whose an ex-criminal turned good by mother nature. Darren Pyromane's a lion who is the tough guy army dude of the bunch and Zeke Terrahorn is the gentle rhino medic hippie who you don't wanna tick off. They hold the powers of the 4 elements but they don't summon Captain Planet, they just beat the crap out of supervillain poachers, evil witches, black market guys, serial killers, etc and put them in jail. It's like across between Captain Planet (Saving the planet), Teen Titans (Team personalities), Road Rovers (humor style) and Criminal Minds (the way they deal with some villains).

I actually found that episode on Itunes. :) I was unable to find it anywhere else. I will certainly have to look into those. :D I've heard of that last one.

Ooh, sounds interesting. :D

Well, I saw someone (PatsySmiles) uploading the episodes on Youtube just recently but she hasn't uploaded that one yet. I requested it but I think she's doing it by season and I think I read the hyena episode is from Season 4. She's only got the first two seasons up so far. I'll probably have to wait till she's done uploading season 3.

I haven't drawn much of the Hero Safari characters because I don't have a scanner. Chase Aquafang is just an adorable hyena character, though. I can picture him being voiced by William Salyers (the guy who does Rigby on Regular Show). He has water/ice based superpowers.
