All he needs is courage! Full of fear, the Cowardly Lion feels anything but “The King of the Beasts.” After encountering Dorothy and the Scarecrow on their way to see the Wizard in the Emerald City, we learn that the lion is not really a coward after all; rather he thinks he is because he does not believe in himself. Before all is said and done, the Cowardly Lion performs several courageous acts without realizing his bravery

The Yellow Brick Road is waiting.

The Cowardly Lion from
MEGO CORP.

The Cowardly Lion makes his first appearance in the book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. He is the last of the companions Dorothy befriends on her way to the Emerald City where he ambushes her, Toto, Scarecrow, and Tin Woodman. When he tries to bite Toto, Dorothy slaps him for trying to attack Toto where she discovers that the Lion is actually a coward which he admits that he is. The Cowardly Lion joins her so that he can ask The Wizard for courage, being ashamed that, in his cultural role as the King of the Beasts, he is not indeed brave. Despite outward evidence that he is unreasonably fearful, The Cowardly Lion displays great bravery along the way. During the journey, he leaps across a chasm on the road of yellow brick multiple times, each time with a companion on his back, and then leaps back to get the next one. When they come into another, wider chasm, the Cowardly Lion holds off two Kalidahs while the Tin Woodman cuts a tall tree to cross it. In spite of his fears, he still goes off to hunt for his food, and he even offers to kill a deer for Dorothy to eat, but the idea makes her uncomfortable.
