Role in seriesEdit

Smolder appeared in six episodes from "Jailhouse Shock" to "It Runs Good," (mostly threatening Timon and Pumbaa (if they annoyed him, cheated him or did anything wrong).


Smolder is genuinely a nice guy until something or someone annoys him, which sets off his terrible temper. Usually, the trouble comes from Timon and Pumbaa, such as waking him up from his nap in "Don' Wake the Neighbear" and getting his fast-food meal order wrong in "Dapper Duck Burgers," which usually results in him threatening to badly hurt them if they continue to annoy him. In the episode "Jailhouse Shock," he is seen with Little Jimmy, who acts as his accomplice. Towards the end of the series, he starts to show compassion for his new friends, as seen in "Stay Away From My Honey" and "Ready, Aim, Fire. He gets mad again and becomes a bank employee in Timon the Robber
