The Hakuna Matata Magazine Series
While Speedy and his comrades are hunting, they target Stripey. The cheetahs start to stalk their prey, but Simba and his friends Timon and Pumbaa are determined to stop them. Lightfoot is the first to be taken out, though the other two cheetahs continue to hunt even after their comrade is knocked unconscious by Timon. Fast-Track is taken out next, head-butted by Pumbaa, and Speedy is left to hunt alone.
Upon seeing his comrade taken down by Pumbaa, Speedy decides to hunt the warthog instead of the zebra. Unwilling to watch his friend die, Simba clamps his jaws around Speedy's tail and drags the cheetah to the ground, where he lays, dizzy and winded.
Speedy is a lithe cheetah with a sleek but strong build. His fur is pale gold and dotted with black spots, while his muzzle, paws, and underbelly are all colored a creamy pink. His ears are rimmed with black, and his eyes are yellow.
