Eddie the Hippo is the nephew of Molly. He is a playful young hippo who often needs to listen to advice from the animals he meets. He is also voiced by Lewis McCloud.
Eddie is usually very playful, but is advised by the other animals of Africa what to do. Eddie rarely talks, because he usually makes crying and bawling sounds. And sometimes he might laugh.
