Physical Description Edit
- “You got cute little gumdrop eyes, a swirly curly cue shell, and you're a snail.”
- ―Timon describing Speedy's appearance to him
Speedy is a grayish-blue snail with cute little gumdrop eyes and a large shiny red shell. In addition to that, he wears a yellow fedora. In "Ocean Commotion," Speedy's shell becomes gold with rubies, emeralds, and sapphires due to a married couple wanting to make an earring out of it. Speedy states that he is going to keep the gold shell, however, it later turns back to its normal color.
The episode, "The Man From J.U.N.G.L.E." reveals that Speedy is a superhero called Super Duper Hero X. As a superhero, Speedy wears a red mask, his shell is yellow with a big, black X on each side, and he has a red cape attacked to the back of his shell.
Speedy is a likable character. He seems to be very easygoing, kind-hearted, and jolly towards his friends. He is also shown to be brave, as he teams up with Timon and Pumbaa to stop Quint from revealing "Super Duper Hero X's" secret identity to the animals of the Pride Lands. Speedy talks and sings in the style of Bing Crosby.
Speedy is always shown to find himself in danger, such as being cooked or having his shell turned into an earring. In these instances, Speedy demonstrates a rather cowardly side as there is nothing he can do to get out of these situations and thus, it is always up to Timon and Pumbaa to save their friend.
Role in the series Edit
Speedy is a snail who lived within or close by Timon and Pumbaa's jungle. Like many superheroes, he has saved many lives in the past.
