Irwin in Shopping Mauled.

Irwin (voiced by Charlie Adler) is a clumsy penguin in the The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa.


Irwin is a penguin with a good heart but is also one of the most annoying and unlucky characters that Timon and Pumbaa have ever encountered. Whenever Timon and Pumbaa are around him they feel the wrath of his ill fortune and end up in many accidents due to his talent of bringing back luck to those around him.

He also has a very annoying voice and always says sorry after he causes pain and tells everyone over and over again, "I'm Irwin," which annoys Timon.

Role in seriesEdit

He first appeared in the episode "Frantic Atlanic," where Timon and Pumbaa, lost and freezing, first "befriended" him at a boat stop. They then used him for his two spare tickets to board the ship and return to warmer surroundings. When bad luck started to occur, the duo tried to run away from him, unaware that he would always catch them in the end.

Irwin starred in another episode called "Shopping Mauled," and once again the chase was on between unlucky Irwin and Timon and Pumbaa trying to avoid him and (unsuccessfully) avoid getting hurt.
