The Hyena is a character from Lady and the Tramp. He only appears in one scene, where Tramp tries to get the muzzle off of Lady. When they try the alligator exhibit, Al the Alligator nearly swallows poor Lady whole, but Tramp manages to rescue her just in time. The hyena starts to laugh at them and Lady and Tramp soon leave.



  • The crazy laugh of the Hyena, provided by Dallas McKennon, was later used as a stock sound effect for crazy laughter, specifically the laughing hyenas in the "it's a small world" attraction. It was also heard in the 1979 horror film Tourist Trap, Jon Favreau's 2003 Christmas comedy film Elf, and as the original voice of Ripper Roo in the Crash Bandicoot video game franchise.
