Nice sidekick, Shere Khan. A hyena who laughs at his own bad jokes.
Bagheera to Shere Khan about Tabaqui

Tabaqui the Jackal Hyena is a Disney villain who was dropped from the 1967 film The Jungle Book, and was a parody of Wile E. Coyote (Ironically, as a sidenote, when Chuck Jones did "Mowgli's Brothers", Tabaqui looked very much like Wile E. Coyote).

While he doesn't appear in the 1994 live-action adaptation, his name is given to one of the minor antagonist's men. However he did appear in The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story.

Appearances

The Jungle Book 2

Tabaqui was originally going to make his appearance in The Jungle Book 2, after Mowgli meets up with Baloo near the beginning of the film. Tabaqui attempted to eat Mowgli, but faces many accidents and injuries as he pursues them. Mowgli and Baloo remain unaware of Tabaqui's presence, and the two walk away. Unfortunately, he was deleted from the final film and his role was given to Kaa instead. He was to be voiced by Jeff Bennett or Frank Welker.

Trivia

  • Like several Jungle Book characters (e.g. Colonel Hathi, Baloo, etc.), Tabaqui was intended to be altered into a comic relief character.
  • In some movie adaptations of the original Jungle Book, Tabaqui is a striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena), instead of golden jackal (Canis aureus).
  • A possible reason why Tabaqui was deleted from The Jungle Book because the idea of a wild wolf failing to eat a protagonist was already used in The Sword in the Stone. This idea of a villain failing to eat a protagonist is retained, but with Kaa in the role.
