Typical Saying
The Hungry Wolf is the secondary antagonist in Disney's 1963 feature film, The Sword in the Stone. He was voiced by James MacDonald, who was the voice of Mickey Mouse for over 30 years.


The Hungry Wolf is a dangerous but unlucky wolf who is constantly met with misfortune during several encounters with Wart (aka Arthur Pendragon). He constantly tries to eat Wart in the film. Of course, he always misses and is injured frequently. He is a scrawny wolf who is more comical than threatening. He also bears a resemblance to Wolf from Peter and the Wolf, though he is not as frightening.

Role in the filmEdit

The wolf finds Wart in the forest, and decides to abandon an old bone in favor of having this boy for a meal. He tries and fails many times to eat him. The last time being when Arthur and Merlin turn themselves into squirrels. He ends up being defeated by a female squirrel who fell in love with Arthur. She tricked him into jumping into the river, where he ended up stuck inside in a log, floating downstream.


  • Unlike most non-speaking villainous animals who are frightening in appearance, the wolf is the only animal who is not. He appears slightly powerful, but he is mostly dumb, ugly, and rather unlucky.
  • Wolf is similar to Wolf in Make Mine Music in that they both want to eat humans and/or animals, and they both fail miserably.
  • The wolf is the main villain to appear in The Sword in the Stone. The first one is the hawk during the prologue of the movie.
