A MAAAAAAANNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
―Lena's first reaction to Eddie Valiant

Lena Hyena is a minor character in the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. She's a crazy, unattractive Toon woman who Eddie Valiant encounters in Toontown after mistaking her for Jessica Rabbit. She's voiced by iconic voice actress, June Foray.


Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Eddie pursues Jessica into Toontown believing her to have just committed a murder. Upon arrival, he notices a half-silhouette of a woman resembling Jessica doing her hair in a hotel window and proceeds to intercept. Once there, the seemingly stunning woman immediately reveals herself to be an ugly hag named Lena Hyena. Believing Eddie to have come visit her out of romantic intent, Lena becomes instantly smitten and chases after him in a lustful, chaotic spasm. Not knowing where to turn, he retreats into the men's restroom.

Eddie discovers the restroom is non-existent leading to open air a million miles high in the sky and plummets countless stories. Just as he's about to hit the street below, Lena manages to catch him just in time and kisses vimery much to his dismay. Still madly passionate for Eddie, she continues to run after him. Eddie then quickly tears a street line and places it towards a brick wall to which she mindlessly follows, flattening upon impact.

Roger Rabbit's Toontown

Lena appears in the Roger Rabbit's Toontown issue, "The Kissing Bandit" where it's revealed she's actually been a long-time friend of Jessica. In the issue, Jessica visits Lena in Toontown as she's pursued by a Toon Wolf who's overly smitten by her. The Wolf keeps confusing Lena for Jessica in his multiple attempts to kiss her, much to his horror. He runs away not knowing what to learn from his shenanigans. Unaware Lena had a cold, the Wolf gets sick after kissing her so many times.


Abner Delivery Lena'46

Lena the Hyena finally revealed in a 1946 drawing contest; rendition by Basil Wolverton.

  • Lena Hyena has been confused for also being Lena the Hyena, a character from the comic strip Li'l Abner by Al Capp as they have near identical names and are both comically hideous. There's been a long-standing rumor that Lena was loosely adapted from or was, at least, referencing the Li'l Abner character.
  • Lena's scene was heavily inspired by a segment from the 1943 Tex Avery short Red Hot Riding Hood where Grandma chases the Wolf after he mistakes her for Red. It also references the moment when he runs through a door and almost falls off a very tall apartment building.
  • The scene contains references to Disney's Alice in Wonderland; the doorknobs on Lena's floor appear highly similar to the Doorknob from the film and the graffiti on the bathroom wall reads "For a good time, call ALLYSON "WONDERLAND", the best is yet to be".
  • Real saliva was used when she kissed Eddie.
