Mel is the antagonist of The Lion King's Timon and Pumbaa episode Beauty and the Wildebeest. He was voiced by Jeff Bennett.
Mel is a handsome gazelle who is in love with a beautiful female gazelle named Lara. At Lara's birthday party, he pops out of her birthday cake and attempts to woo her, but she rejects his advances.
A wildebeest named Herman arrives with a handsome appearance and voice (thanks to Rafiki) and makes Mel jealous. Mel challenges Herman to a fight over Lara, but when Herman reveals his true, ugly form, Mel freaks out and runs away.
