Varies in each episode
I am C. Quint!
Quint is a muscular man with varying roles, who appears as a recurring antagonist in The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa.
The Quints in each episode of the television series have backstories of their own. Particularly in the episode "Swiss Missed," he appears as a clock inspector named Clockwork Quint. When the Swiss town chose Fronk to be timekeeper, Quint has been jealous of him and has been waiting for revenge ever since. As a clock inspector, when he sees that the clock is broken, he came up with an idea for revenge: firing Fronk if the clock is not fixed by noon.
As his role varies in every episode he appears in, Quint has different first names that are related to what his jobs are. For example, in "Yukon Con," he appears as Cusco Quint (a con artist who tricks Timon into stealing Pumbaa's gold so that he can have it), in "Palm Beached," he appears as Concierge Quint (a hotel manager who keeps throwing Timon and Pumbaa out of a hotel) and he appears as Captain Quint in "Ocean Commotion" and "Going Over-Boar'd."
In the episode "The Pain in Spain," two Quints (Carlos and Consuelo Quint) are seen together. This can prove that there is more than one of him.
Quint is muscular in build with black hair, a pink nose, and a shaven face, though his clothing is constantly changing along with his occupation in the show. For example, in the episode "Truth or Zaire," he appears as a wildlife photographer, while in "French Fried," he is a French cook trying to make escargot out of Speedy the Snail, a friend of Timon and Pumbaa.
Personality and traits
So long, suckers!
Though his occupation does vary throughout the series, he will almost always go out of his way just to annoy Timon and Pumbaa. Most of the time, Quint is vain, sneaky, arrogant, conceited, egotistical, and manipulative, but has been known in a few episodes to be merely a respectable man with an honest job (though still manages to get in the way of Timon and Pumbaa's plans somehow or another). For example, in "Klondike Con," Quint begins as a courteous man helping Timon and Pumbaa, with Timon not gaining his trust, helping them get gold. When Timon and Pumbaa have the sack of gold with them as they are falling off a cliff, Quint says to throw the gold to him to help them get back up. Timon, still in distrust, declines his offer. However, Pumbaa reminds Timon all the good things Quint had done for them, so Timon decides to throw the bag to Quint so he could save them. At that moment, from "Courteous Quint" he turns into "Claim Jumper Quint" and steals the gold from Timon and Pumbaa.
- Quint is the only human to have met and had a confrontation with Simba (and vice versa), as seen in "Rome Alone."
- Quint also has a habit of giving himself nicknames, usually in relation to his jobs or roles in the various episodes he appears in. Ex. "Criminal Quint" as a robber, "Congo Quint" as a photographer, etc.
- Quint is very similar to Mickey Mouse's archenemy Pete, Yosemite Sam from Looney Tunes, and Chester from Codename Kid's Next Door, as they all have varying occupations. Quint may have inspired Rancid Rabbit from Catdog as they have the previously mentioned qualities as well as a pink nose, cause trouble for the titular duo, and serve as antagonists alongside a carnivore with two males and a female.
- Quint is also very similar to Norman from Marsupilami, as they both have varying roles with different first names relating to their jobs, they both have shaven faces, and they both serve as frequent antagonists, making them the archenemies of the heroes.
