Mufasa and Simba

The image of Mufasa affectionately patting Simba on the back when he was a baby is one memory that he is portrayed as always having remembered, and it fueled his anger towards Scar once he found out it was him that had murdered Mufasa.

Nonetheless, it's a terrific testimony of the relationship between a father and a son, one of the reasons the show was so successful.

Rafiki Coloring Page

There can be no doubt, as you can see from this printable coloring page of Rafiki, that there was an influence from the Jedi master himself - Yoda - as to how he was being portrayed.

Since lions are noted for one color, for the most part, it is difficult to find opportunities to use different colors with Lion King coloring pages. Rafiki, because of his facial colors, provides that option with his very colorful facial features.

Of course children don't abide by adult rules, so that may or may not be a problem depending upon whether they decide they want the characters to look like they did in the films or decide to create their own "interpretation" of them.

Hyena Playing Bones

In a moment of comic relief that had most people smiling - even for this hyena villain - we have this terrific illustration of the hyena (I can't remember which one it was) playing a song on a group of bones.

It is hilarious, and that look on his face produces the sense that this guy is one that has some rock "n" roll potential. Either that or maybe heavy metal possibilities.

For a bad guy, the children won't mind coloring this one in, as they are sure to do it with a smile on their faces.
