Hyacinth Hippo is a character from Disney's 1940 movie Fantasia.
Hyacinth Hippo is the lead of the dancers of the daytime, and symbolizes Laura Adorno of the opera. This is deduced by the fact that she is wooed by Ben Ali Gator (who symbolises Enzo Grimaldo) and by her deep sleep, as in the opera Laura also is sent into a deep sleep.
She makes a couple of cameo appearances in the film. Her only line is "Oh, excuse me" when she passed Eddie Valiant. When she sat on a bench, it broke due to her sheer mass sending a person flying up into the atmosphere. She later has cameo appearance during the final scene with other toons.
Hyacinth made a cameo in the episode "Cartoon Cornered".
She makes cameo appearances in the series. She had a few appearances specifically in the episode "Ladies Night" where she acts as the club's temporary body guard and whenever Mortimer Mouse arrives, she jumps on him, Which is the Episode's Running Gag.
Hyacinth and her hippo friends, were part of Daisy Duck's skating act in the segment "Bells On ice".
Hyacinth Hippo appears in various parades as a walkaround character. Statues of her also appear at the Disneyland Hotel's Fantasia Shop and at the Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf course at Walt Disney World. A topiary was also created for use during the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot.
Hyacinth can be seen in the Disney Magic cruise ship's Magical Porthole.
