Clawhauser is a supporting character in the 2016 Disney animated feature film Zootopia. He is a member of the Zootopia Police Department, working as a receptionist and a radio dispatcher.

Physical Appearance == Officer Clawhauser is one of the shorter mammals working at the ZPD, though most of the animals there are fairly large, and Clawhauser still towers over Judy Hopps and other short-to-medium-sized mammals. He is very heavily-built, largely due to his love of donuts. He has a long tail, which tends to perk up when he is excited or cheerful. His fur is covered in black spots typical of cheetahs.


Clawhauser possesses a bubbly personality, characterized by enthusiasm, especially for his idol, Gazelle, and also, perhaps to a lesser extent, his job as the "first face that you see when you walk into the ZPD". He can be prone to overlooking some aspects of his job if some of his other passions are involved, such as when he didn't answer Judy Hopps' call due to being preoccupied with Gazelle. His interactions in regards to Mrs. Otterton show that he wants to do his job well, but is perhaps limited by things out of his control, such as Chief Bogo's somewhat dismissive personality or the sheer fact that very little progress was being made on the case in question.

While he has a friendly demeanor, his friendliness sometimes strays into making accidentally inappropriate remarks or going into in-depth conversations about trivial issues in the wrong times. He apologizes once he realizes that he causes offense, however, such as when he labels Judy Hopps as "cute."

He is very social and appears to love making new friends, as he was the first animal at the ZPD to greet Judy and at the time, the only one willing to be acquainted with her.
