A beloved member of the Shazam Family, Tawky Tawny is a tiger who magically has the ability to speak.
Mr. Tawky Tawny was a humanoid tiger, and a friend and frequent ally to Captain Marvel and the Marvel Family during the Golden Age of comics. Mr. Tawny had once been an ordinary tiger in India, who was falsely accused of killing a man. To help the tiger to clear his name, a strange hermit gave him a magic serum that gifted him the ability to speak and stand upright like a human. Although fiercely strong, Mr. Tawny was not savage, and liked to wear tweed suits and compose himself like a refined gentleman. When he arrived in America, Billy Batson helped him find a job as a museum guide, and the pair had many adventures together... In post-Crisis on Infinite Earths continuity, Tawky Tawny began as a stuffed doll, which was given life by the demonic Lord Satanus.
