Seymour is a character from Happy Feet and a supporting character in Happy Feet Two. He is the larger and bigger male Emperor Penguin in Emperor-Land. He is also the father of Atticus. His heartsong is "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash. He is Mumble's former rival.


Seymour is a penguin who falls in love with Gloria, the best singer in Emperor-Land, although he is very large and visible body-fat, if viewed. He also appeared as a minor character in the Happy Feet movie and as a main character in Happy Feet Two.

Seymour also seemed to have such a small family in Happy Feet Two. His most visible member of his family is his son, Atticus, the taller and the best chick in Emperor-Land. Seymour also very cares about his son, and also has a closest relationship with both of them.


Seymour looks like bigger and larger Emperor Penguin. He has gold patch in his chest at Happy Feet, the shorter feet, white and black feathers, like others Emperor Penguins. Also in his black feathers, some feathers coloured gray. But in Happy Feet Two, Seymour looks different. He has yellow-to-gold color in his patch, and his back coloured black (not mixed with gray like from the first film). He also have yellow eyes.


Happy Feet

In Happy Feet, Seymour appears to be as a minor antagonist. His first appearance is at when he was a baby, with Gloria, Mumble, and others. He is first shown in Penguin Elementary, questioning whether fishing is the most important lesson the chicks will learn there. Thereafter, he discovers the beginning of his heartsong: The Message. After Mumble failed to sing, he and the others except Gloria laughed at him.
Then, in the sea on Graduation Day, he chased Mumble's friend and love interest, Gloria, ehom Seymour is also infatuated with. Then Mumble appears to be chasing her. He accidentally pushes Gloria and Mumble into the water a bit later.

Also in the Graduation Concert, Seymour was in the front, with Gloria singing. He appear again when Mumble return to Emperor-Land after he stop the aliens from taking the fish. Mumble makes the others to help the humans return to Emperor-Land by dancing together, with Seymour in there.

In the reprise of "I Wish", a reformed Seymour appears to be dancing and singing with the baby penguins.

Happy Feet Two

Happy Feet Seymour
In Happy Feet Two, Seymour sings with his son, Atticus. Later, after the Doomberg traps all the residents in Emperor Land, Seymour sings raps in rhythm with Gloria, Erik, and the other penguins and elephant seals, "Give love, y'all!"



  • Seymour was voiced by Fat Joe in the first movie and Common in the second movie.
  • Seymour has a unique flame pattern on each side of his neck. When he was a chick, he had little white spikes jutting out the sides of his face, a pattern different from the other chicks.
  • Seymour does not appear in the console versions of Happy Feet: The Videogame. He only appeared in the GBA version of the game.
  • Seymour and Gloria are the only known penguins who never mocked Mumble for his differences. Seymour refers to Mumble as "Brother" in Happy Feet Two, suggesting that Seymour and Mumble were possibly already close friends during childhood, This is further supported by the fact that Seymour shows no anger or sadness when Gloria chooses Mumble.
    • He is also the second character to refer Mumble as "Brother". The first being Lovelace in the first film.
