Wendal is a Tasmanian wolf that resembles Wile E. Coyote. Wendal is a neurotic fellow, talking and acting like Woody Allen. He believes that he's the last of his species, but feels the need for social companionship. He continually dresses as various species of animals and attempts to join their colonies, but he never seems to fit in.
In his first appearance Taz chases after him, and shortly after eating him, spits him out. Wendal then sees Taz as a personal idol and mentor, although Taz would rather stay away from him. Some of the episodes starring Wendal use the Taz-Manian Theatre format, a parody of Masterpiece Theater, hosted by Mr. Thickley.
