Ed has a small head with large ears. His ears are thin and have a few bite marks on them. His eyes are always wide open (almost bulging) and crossed. He has a large tongue that often hangs out of his mouth, which regularly bares a crazy smile. To top it off, Ed has a few hairs sprouting from the top of his head.
Ed is a bit of a comic relief from the other minions of Scar and his diabolical plans. The other hyenas tease him all the time, but Ed just keeps laughing. He is known for his wild, maniacal laughter.
The Lion King
Ed nodded frantically when asked if he knew Simba was Mufasa's son, a fact that the other two hyenas tried to hide when cornered by Mufasa. He also made a low, sinister laugh when the hyenas overhear Scar say that the hyenas were the real enemy.
The Lion King 1½
- Ed is the only hyena with a name that does not have a meaning in Swahili.
- Although many believe Ed does not speak, in Be Prepared, he sings along near the end of the song when the trio sing "Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared."
