Happy Dog (pet)
Dr. Happy, also known as Mr. Happy, is a character from The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa.
Happy owns an animal sanctuary where he keeps animals away from danger. He has a dog named Happy Dog, who serves as his sidekick.
Dr. Happy finds Timon and Pumbaa sleeping and believes they're endangered species. So he takes them to his animal sanctuary. At first, Timon and Pumbaa try to escape the sanctuary but then Happy builds some activities the two can do there. 28 years later, Timon and Pumbaa get homesick and they distract Happy and his dog by using potato bags to make them believe they escaped. So Mr. Happy and Happy Dog get out of the sanctuary to go after the potato bags (and the other animals that escaped). After Timon and Pumbaa get out of the sanctuary, they run into Happy and his dog again and try to avoid them.
Dr. Happy appears again, but only in the beginning of the episode. A monster, Bartholomew, escapes from his lab and Happy Dog tries to make him wake up to go after him. But Happy tells him that they will catch Bartholomew later after he's done sleeping.
Happy is an obese kid who wears a light blue shirt with red stripes at the end of the sleeves, dark blue shorts with a heart on it, socks with sandals, glasses, and a red hat with a toy blue dog on top of it.
When he sleeps, he wears a long blue hat with stars and moons on it, dark purple pajamas, and pink bunny slippers.
Personality and traits
Happy likes to help poor unfortunate animals, so he puts them in a sanctuary so they can be safe. Happy can also be a little hyperactive.
