Humsin is the secondary antagonist in the 1997 TV series Tabaluga. According to Tabaluga's biography, he has to stop Humsin from creating a searing desert as well as Arktos from creating a frozen wasteland. Humsin is an anthropomorphic whirlwind of sand and he is very similar to Arktos. His goal is to turn Greenland into a forbidden desert. He has a chameleon named Kayo as his henchman for combat, but Kayo can be somewhat dimwitted. Humsin makes his first appearance in the episode of the same name. Humsin's other workers are Hyena, Ostrich, lizards, camels, desert mice, and Vultur. His archenemy in the series is Arktos, because both of Tabaluga's enemies debate on what element they should add.


New Invader in Greenland

Even though the reign of Arktos had ended, the peace over Greenland is not completely restored. Arktos ordered to cut down nearly all the trees in Greenland. As result, much of the land that those trees originally grew became barren and open. Humsin soon arrived, planning to claim the environment as part of his territory. He convinced Tabaluga to welcome him as a new resident and promised to help the stranded animals get new homes.

In reality, Humsin intended on turning Greenland into a desert. Humsin ordered his workers to to cart the trees away and hollow out their logs into tubes for a massive chutes, using a machine at his base to pump lots and lots of sand into Greenland. He and Kayo also met Arktos midway through their scheme, where the snowman offered an alliance, only to be insulted by the sand elemental for his constant failures against Tabuluga. This led to Arktos becoming his rival and aiding Tabuluga in fighting against the sand-machine, slowing down Humsin's army by catapulting snowballs at them while the Greenlanders clogged the chute's opening with a large boulder. The machine was destroyed and buried the desert-dwellers in their own sand, leaving Humsin to swear revenge.

Later life and death

Humsin made his last appearance in the second-to-last episode, The Sands of Doom. Humsin fell to his death by falling off a waterfall. It occurred when Tabaluga was in a confrontation with Humsin after restoring Greenland back to normal (Humsin actually succeeded in turning it into a desert in this very same episode). Both Tabaluga and Humsin fell into a river, leading to a waterfall and Humsin fell to his death while Tabaluga saved himself. Tabaluga asked Humsin if he was still alive, but no answer was heard. Presumably, Humsin fell to his death and dissolved in the river below. His worker Kayo attempted to work for Arktos, even though the latter constantly rejected Kayo's help. It is unknown what happened to Humsin's other workers, Ostrich, Hyena, and others, after the episode, since unlike Kayo, they never reappear in Season 3.

Villainous Deeds

  • Humsin tricked Tabaluga and his friends thinking that there is a unique place. However, it is revealed that it is a mirage. This causes them to suffer, because of no air. This occurs in the episode, Digby the Hero.
  • Humsin plans to capture a number of lizards as his workers to make his latest weapon. This is considered enslavement. This appears in the episode, The Lost Dragon.
  • Humsin started to attack all the babies from their newborn mothers in the desert after hearing all the crying noises by using his windy breath. He started to abandon all of them. This occurs in the episode, My Baby.
  • Humsin used the Flute of Hypnosis and tells any wielder near him to do anything under his command. He hypnotized Shouhou and Rubin to capture Tabaluga and followed Humsin's command until the real flute was switched to a fake one. This occurs in the episode, Thunderbird.

Humsin's first appearance


Humsin is the first villain from Tabaluga to actually die. He fell off the waterfall to his death. It is very similar, if not nearly identical, to McLeach's death from The Rescuers Down Under.
