These are Scar's 3 main hyenas
Did you know? Disney was almost sued for portraying hyenas as bad guys.
- Voiced by Whoopi Goldberg
Whoopi's character came on as somebody who's particularly scheming all the time. She's the leader of the gang, and it's true about actual hyenas. They're led usually by females, by what is known as an alpha female, so her character was always cool, always scheming, very rarely lost composure, and so on.

Cheech's character was kind of the opposite of Shenzi, you know, very volatile, barely ever able to speak in whispers, very 'on' all the time, high pitch.

he directors always thought that Ed was a guy who knew the score but pretended to be an idiot, so, you know, that's kind of how they treated him.
