Shenzi and Zazu

Mufasa and later Simba’s majordomo. As a youngster, Zazu is an incompetent, talkative nuisance, but soon learns to distinguish between what’s real news and what’s not, though he’s not above some juicy gossip. Proud and pompous, despite his size, he’s rather snobby and looks down on lowlifes, and is not afraid to use his dry, biting wit. He is a very loyal friend and servant to the royal family. Easy flustered and somewhat panicky. He is a Red-billed Hornbill.
