Dandy Claws is a mysterious creature who brings presents on Christmas day if summoned by a special song.


Early life

Dandy Claws started a tradition in which he left presents under a tree every Christmas morning.[1]

Timon and Pumbaa's Christmas

Pumbaa dresses up as Dandy Claws for a Christmas celebration in the Pride Lands.

Timon and Pumbaa attempted to celebrate Christmas in the Pride Lands in the hopes of summoning Dandy Claws. Timon lamented how year after year, Dandy Claws had not brought them presents, as they had been unable to perform the proper ritual. The Lion Guard decided to put together the ritual themselves, and Pumbaa dressed up as Dandy Claws, much to Timon's delight.[1]

Physical appearance

According to Pumbaa, Dandy Claws is a "big, red guy with fluffy, white whiskers." When Pumbaa dressed up as him, he wore white flowers to represent Dandy Claws's white whiskers and a gourd to represent Dandy Claws's hat.[1]
