Harry Hyena


Harry the Hyena is a hyena who lives in the African savanna. He has a wife named Edna and is the father of Holly and Johnnie. Harry is also encountered in the jungle aside from being encountered in the savanna.

Physical Appearance

Harry looks more much like a hound dog, but has a purple nose and black spots. He is based on a spotted hyena. He has much hair than his wife Edna. He has a spiral tail and has five spots on his body.

In Adobe Flash, Harry went over a minor redesign. Harry has pale brown spots and a pale brown nose.


Like all hyenas, Harry likes to laugh. He is the father of two hyena pups who always keeps an eye on them. Harry is also good at giving other animals advice, such as Tickles and Giggles in Episode 6. In Episode 25, Harry is also polite by thanking Nelson for removing the boulder from the burrow that has trapped him and Esmeralda for days.

Harry also dislikes his family complaining on the same place on vacation, even during a rainy day. It is also revealed Harry is not a good swimmer in the marsh.
