He is the only one to wear any actual clothing, that being a gray hat and a green-and-white-striped polo-style shirt. Anthony Asbury performed him though seasons 1-8, but at the beginning of season 9, he was performed by Noel MacNeal.
He is a great fan of Cliff Hanger books.
Lionel Lion is friends with Gus the Bunny, Martha Reader, The Vowelles, Johnny Consonanti, Lenny the Alligator, and Heath the Thesaurus
- His green striped shirt may have been based on Steve's green striped shirt from Blue's Clues but only short sleeved while Steve's were long sleeved.
