The first lesson she must learn is that there is no escape. Then we will train her to race. (Mr. Patel: But we need to know exactly how far she can run before tiring.) Yes, yes. We have an odometer. (Mr. Patel: She may resist.) She must learn that she's powerless and we are powerful. Let's begin now.
~ Abdullah before training Duma

Abdullah or Abdallah is one of the three main antagonists of Disney's 1989 live-action film Cheetah, alongside Mr. Patel and Nigel. He is the slayer of Duma's mother. He wants to skin Duma and collect money for him and his friends by making Duma to race against greyhounds, because of Mr. Patel's uncle. However, their plan was foiled by Ted, Susan and Morogo, the protagonists and deuteragonist of the film.

He was portrayed by Paul Onsongo.

Personality

Abdullah is shown to be sneaky, cunning, greedy, arrogant, abusive, traitorous, argumentative, opprobrious, and cruel. He is very savage, murderous, bloodthirsty, and sanguinary, so he loves to hunt and poach animals for sport.

Appearance

Abdullah is a medium-sized man with a black beard and wears a green shirt, black pants, and a black coat with a white scarf.

History

Abdullah is first seen at Mr. Patel's store planning to capture Duma with Mr. Patel and Nigel. When the trio go to the Johnsons' house, Mr. Patel sneaks into the house to steal Ted's whistle to call for Duma. After he got the whistle, they capture Duma.

Abdullah decides to train her for running fast. When the Johnson family go to Mr. Patel's store, Ted recognizes the shoe marks on Abdullah's shoe and realizes that he killed Duma's mother and realizes that Mr. Patel has captured her, because of his mentioning of Duma being lost and that Mr. Patel stole his whistle.

When Abdullah captures Susan, he tries to stab her until he catches Ted in the act. After he puts Ted and Susan in a cage, they leave for Nairobi. However, Morogo frees Ted and Susan from their cage and go after the trio.

When Duma was about to lose the race, Ted snatches his whistle from a cop and blows the whistle to make Duma go faster and reach the finish line. When Abdullah tries to flee from Duma, the cheetah attacks him and Abdullah is arrested by the police.

Well, cheetah... you got some more work to do today. Are you going to be a naughty girl?

That's the point! If she's angry and she's hungry, then she chases the rabbit better. Like some food, cat? Too bad. You gotta earn it.

Come here, cat.
~ Abdullah after Duma fails the next test
The authorities have long wanted me. These children know too much. (Mr. Patel: If I-If I'm understanding you correctly, I cannot countenance this.) (Nigel: There's no time to argue about it now! Let's wait til after the race!) What do we do with them meanwhile? (Nigel: A cage of course!) Yes, good. Then we leave for Nairobi immediately.

Trivia

  • Abdullah is similar to Beauty Smith from White Fang. Both are gambling animal abusers. Both train the heroes (Abdullah trains Duma to race; Smith trains White Fang to fight dogs). Both get arrested at the end after they get attacked by the heroes.
  • Despite "Abdullah" being a Turkish name, Saudi Arabia kind of fits him better.
  • Abdullah is probably one of the most evil Disney villains, as he killed many innocent animals, and plotted with his fellow friends to kidnap Duma to race against greyhounds and collect money for themselves. Abdullah even planned to skin Duma if she lost the race.
  • His name is also given to one of Buldeo's men in Jungle Book: Shonen Mowgli.
