Lambert Lion is the titular main character of the 1952 cartoon short Lambert the Sheepish Lion.

Background

Lambert is the foster son of Mrs. Sheep, having been accidentally brought to a meadow alongside some lambs by a stork. He is initially very cowardly until his adoptive mother is put in danger, whereupon he displays amazing courage.

Appearances

Lambert the Sheepish Lion

Lambert is brought to a meadow on accident by a stork. Upon seeing the lambs with their new mothers, he chooses Mrs. Sheep to be his mother, much to her joy. The stork realizes his mistake almost immediately, and attempts to take Lambert to South Africa where he belongs, but is quickly stopped via a headbutt from Mrs. Sheep.

Lambert attempts to play with the other lambs, but he is teased for his decidedly un-sheeplike appearance and habits. This culminates in a headbutting contest which Lambert loses badly, leading to his cowardly habits.

By fall, Lambert has become an adult lion under Mrs. Sheep's care, but still remains the butt of the jokes of the now-grown sheep. This changes one night when a wolf attacks the flock, and when he threatens Mrs. Sheep, Lambert is petrified and assumes the flock will help, but they run and hide. Hearing his mother cry for help, Lambert snaps and becomes a raging lion, roaring at the wolf and headbutting him off the cliff he stands on. Due to his courage, Lambert is held in high regard by the sheep who had previously teased him.

Social Lion

Lambert (unnamed) lives in Africa where he roars to scare all the other animals. He then gets sent off to the city, where he goes a lot more crazy.

Quack Pack

Lambert made a cameo as one of the living lions owned by Andre Demouche in the Quack Pack episode, "Cat & Louse".

DuckTales

Lambert appears as one of the animals alongside Dolores the Elephant at the Duckburg Zoo in the episode, "The Money Vanishes".

Trivia

  • Ironically, Lambert's color scheme resembles that of Scar's and/or Kovu's.
  • The lion that appears in the 1954 one-shot Disney cartoon short Social Lion bears a striking resemblance to Lambert, even having the same only line of dialogue, "Mama?!" This is due to much animation from Lambert the Lion being reused for Social Lion.
