Dondylion is a lion held captive in a zoo against his will, with a framed picture of legendary rocker David Lee Roth – the shaggy haired 'King of the Jungle' - as his only salvation.

Aptly described as part Pete Docherty and part Simba from The Lion King, Dondylion quickly begins to lament his lack of freedom in series 1. This majestic beast is not short of courage like his Wizard of Oz counterpart. His desire for the outside world leads Dondylion to plot an escape that does not end happily – but not for good. Apparently domestic cats aren't the only creatures with nine lives.
