Lara is the love interest of Herman and Mel in The Lion King's Timon and Pumbaa episode Beauty and the Wildebeest. She is voiced by Kath Soucie.
Lara along with her fellow gazelles are at a waterhole where an ugly wildebeest named Herman arrives and scares away the other animals away because of his appearance. Lara's friends mock Herman for his looks, but are told to stop by Lara who invites Herman to her birthday party.
At the party, a male gazelle named Mel tries to seduce Lara but she rejects his advances. Herman appears with a new handsome look (which he got from Rafiki) which makes Mel jealous and he challenges Herman to a fight over Lara. However when Herman reveals his real look, Mel runs away which impresses Lara who reveals that she too is ugly and starts a relationship with Herman.
