Ugh, don't really want to say much about the buzzard, but he's still a character of TLK, so for that reason alone, I'll spare him the insults and just say he's an okay character. ^^ Not having Rowin Atkinson (sp) to reprise his voice in both TLK2SP and 1 1/2 really hurt his character though, or at least what little character there was to hurt in the first place. lol. ^^ Okay, I'm done. :)

What do you mean "What little character there was to begin with.." ? Zazu has plenty of character. There's an easy way to tell whether or not a character is essential and that is to hypothesize what the movie would be like without that character.

Without Zazu...
- Mufasa would have absolutely no way of knowing that Simba and Nala were in trouble, and they would've been shredded in seconds.
- Simba would have nobody to defy, particularly in the "I Just Can't Wait to be King" scenes
- There would be no bridge between the generations of Mufasa and Simba
- There would be no mediation between the opposing sides of Mufasa and Scar
- There wouldn't be anybody to offer witty retorts to Scar's snark, taking away a LOT of the comedy of the movie (not just from Zazu, but from Scar as well)
- Most of us would never have even heard of the coconut song :lol:

Believe me, there's more character than you realize. Now, I can understand if you don't like the character, and it tends to happen to comedic characters that they're either loved or hated, but to say that his character is underdeveloped and nonessential?

Zazu is important in TLK. :)

Even though he isn't on my top list, he is still well needed. ^^ If it weren't for him, most of the things that occurred in TLK wouldn't of happen. ^^

I think the royal family has a lot to be grateful to Zazu for. ;)
I am glad Disney decided not to give him a girlfriend in SP, though. (An early idea for SP was that Zazu was going to have a girlfriend called Binti.) That would just be weird in my opinion.

True, and any creature that would've done Zazu's job would also have the personality that comes across to some as annoying. Like I said, comedic characters are either loved or despised, and there's no middle ground. Whether Zazu was a bird, a gopher, or another lion, he'd still be thought of as annoying.
