So this is the outdoor woods? I like it!
―Tiger arriving in the woods[src]

Prince Tigerius Mahmoud Shaboz, better known as Tiger, is a character in Over the Hedge. He is Gladys' former pet and Stella's boyfriend.

In the film, he orders Stella (who was disguised as a cat) to leave "with her filth", thus upsetting her and making her stand up to him. In turn, Tiger is amazed that someone stood up to him for the first time and thus, began to fall in love with Stella.



Not much is known about Tiger's early years, but he does reveal that he was bred for beauty, which indicates that he comes from an highly exclusive family of cats. This is furthermore evidenced by the fact that Tiger reveals that his father, and his grandfather, were both very similar in appearance.

In Over the Hedge

Tiger comes out of the door and he sees the animals near the trash can and his owner Gladys Sharp shoos them away. He later appears when Stella distracts him when the animals go to the house to get the food. The next morning Tiger falls in love with Stella and he gets netted by Dwayne the exterminator when he captures Verne and the animals after RJ leaves. At the end he and Stella hugs and now he's part of the family.

In Over the Hedge: The Video Game

Tiger only appears at the end of the game when he dances with Stella.


Tiger has been shown to be pretty selfish, skeptical to strangers, and also quite protective over his territory. His also shown as being very self-centered and "royal", in that he constantly talks about his beauty, and how he has inherited his beauty from generations of cats.


He has blue eyes.


  • Tiger speaks with a heavy Persian accent. Ironically in real life and hence his name and his Persian accent, Tigers (Panthera tigris) were once present in Persia (now Iran) until they became extinct there in 1959, when the last known tiger was shot in the Golestan province.
