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

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.

I found Hardy Har-Har from Snooper and Blabber cartoon, which he made his only appearance was "The Laughing Guess."

Cool :) I would have included the hyenas from George and Martha, and the ones from Kimba the White Lion.

I do have references for them, along with a few other hyenas from other shows. :) Just need to get back into doing this at some point. :XD:

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.
