I believe it was Rocky from Rocky & Bullwinkle.

This is from memory. Hard to find a reference on this, but this is the best I could do.

Could it be Hardy Har Har the Hyena from "Lippy the lion and Hardy Har Har"? hard to find a direct quote but I remember he had very little positive to say - probably with good reason!
"Lippy was, as the name implies, a lion; and Hardy was a rather dour-faced, non-laughing hyena. Their schtick was that Lippy would come up with a wonderful but unworkable scheme to achieve whatever goal he was after; but it was usually Hardy, the pessimistic one, who suffered worse from whatever consequences befell them as a result"
