Hank the Mule

Real Name

The Tik-Tok Man of Oz (1913)

Original Publisher

Reilly & Britton

L. Frank Baum


Hank and Betsy Bobbin became good friends aboard a ship during an ocean voyage. One night the ship struck a rock, and Hank and Betsy were thrown overboard just before it blew up and sank. Hank proved to be a loyal friend to Betsy, and after their initial adventure was done, he remained with her in Oz where he first began to speak.

Hank is a thin little, sad-faced mule.

  • L. Frank Baum was not entirely consistent in his references to Hank. The animal is called a "mule" 32 times in the text of Tik-Tok of Oz, but called a "donkey" 8 times. Twice, in fact, Hank is called a "small donkey," and twice a "little donkey."
