Quote "Let me take a moment to point at you and laugh derisively."
That is, without a doubt, the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen in my entire life.
―Ned about Pumbaa trying to be like him

Ned the Elephant is a snooty elephant in the Timon & Pumbaa TV series. He is known to be the most popular guy of the jungle. He is voiced by Frank Welker.

Background

Physical Description

Ned has the typical appearance of an elephant: obese and gray with pink ears and white tusks.

Personality

Let me take a moment to point at you and laugh derisively.
―Ned to Timon

Ned is a high and mighty elephant who thinks he's wonderful at everything. He can also be egotistic and sarcastic. He enjoys playing the king of his two hippo friends and is prone to enjoy teasing Timon and Pumbaa by laughing at them whenever they try to prove their worth to him. But after Pumbaa helped him and the hippos up, he's a bit more caring.

Role in the series

Timon and Pumbaa

"Uganda Be an Elephant"

UBAE Ned2

Ned with his hippo henchmen

Timon and Pumbaa look upon Ned the Elephant, seeing how popular he is. Timon suggests that Pumbaa should become an elephant, but Pumbaa says that he would rather stay as a warthog.

The next day, Pumbaa tells Timon that he decided to be an elephant so he can be as popular as Ned. Timon tells him that in order to become an elephant, he has to become big and fat. So he makes feeds Pumbaa a lot of bugs.

Timon then tells Pumbaa that elephants never forget, so he tests his friend to see if he could remember everything. Timon then makes Pumbaa's snout grow longer. He makes the warthog stick his head between two trees, puts a hook in his nose and pushes a rock off a cliff. Pumbaa, however, doesn't feel comfortable in his elephant form, but Timon tells him that everything will be okay.

Timon shows Ned and his hippo henchmen Pumbaa's elephant form. Ned doesn't seem to like it and he and his hippo friends laugh at Pumbaa and fall out a cliff, nearly ending in death. As Ned holds on to a branch, Pumbaa makes the elephant grab on to his tusks.

After Pumbaa rescues him, Ned has a change of heart and suggests that Pumbaa becomes an honorary elephant, but Pumbaa decides to stay as a warthog.

"Unlucky in Lesotho"

Ned has a good luck club. A zebra tells him that it was a good club until he brought an unlucky jar. Timon later decides to join Ned's good luck club and the elephant tells him that in order for him to be accepted, he has to protect the jar for one whole day.

Ned with Timon

Pumbaa later finds a panther kitten and brings it home. When Timon tells him that black cats give bad luck, Pumbaa hides the panther from his friend. The panther kitten causes a lot of bad luck to happen. After Timon wonders what was causing all the bad luck, he has an idea of one way to protect the jar.

After the panther causes the jar to break, Timon decides to fool Ned by sticking the pieces back together. However, Ned is not convinced and he laughs and makes fun of Timon. He is then about to tell the whole jungle about him. But then the panther cub terrifies Ned and makes him fall off a cliff and land in a river. Ned then gets eaten by piranhas.


Trivia

  • It is unknown if Ned survived by the piranhas since elephants got thick skin and piranhas are not native to Africa.
