Mother Eagle (mother)

Baby Earl is a male eaglet. He is babysat by Timon and Pumbaa after the former steals his grub.



Baby Earl is an eaglet who lived with his mother in the mountains.

The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa

"To Kilimanjaro Bird"

While visiting the mountains, Timon and Pumbaa stumble upon Baby Earl's feeding dish. Tempted by the tasty bugs in his dish, the two gobble up the remains of the food, leaving Earl's mother in a fury. In order to keep her from turning them in to the authorities, Timon and Pumbaa volunteer to be Earl's babysitters.


Earl is bid goodbye by his mother

At first, Timon attempts a rushed treatment of Earl, but Pumbaa insists that they stay in order to keep the eaglet safe. No sooner has he said this when Earl jumps out of his nest and nearly dies before being saved by a panicked Timon. Convinced that he must stay with Earl, Timon takes on the burden of babysitting. He attempts to use reverse psychology to get Earl to stay in his nest, but the plan fails, and Earl falls down the side of the mountain.

With free roam of the mountain, Earl hops from cliff to cliff, with Timon and Pumbaa scrambling to keep him safe. When he finally reaches his nest, he hops out, and Timon and Pumbaa are left to watch him fall. Unlike the other plunges, however, this one ends with Earl using safety pins from his diaper to fly back up the cliff and into his mother's waiting arms.

Personality and traits


A screenshot of Earl, reflecting his innocent nature

Despite never speaking, Baby Earl has the defined personality of an ambitious and mischievous flyer-in-training. Desperate to learn, he is naïvely brave, willing to jump off a cliff face in the hopes of finding his wings. He gives his babysitters quite the trouble, being determined to take his own actions and unwilling to compromise.

He is very much a mama's boy, acting especially innocent and sweet around his mother. His learning, however, comes of his own accord, as he appears to be more productive when left to his own independence. Slow to learn, it often takes an extra push for Earl to discover the right way to progress.

His nature is fairly well-mannered, at least around his mother, though he doesn't seem to show much obedience when under the supervision of strangers. He can be very impulsive to the point of stupidity, though this is most likely due to his young age and inexperience with life outside the nest.
