Did You Know?


Timon occasionally refers to himself as "that rat-thing from The Lion King (1994)." This was Nathan Lane's own description of Timon. See more »


Pumbaa: There's no escape, Timon!
Timon: What are we going to do?
Pumbaa: Well, you're the brave one. Maybe you should fight him.
Timon: Me? Fight him? Have you flipped?
Pumbaa: But earlier today, you said you were three times as brave as El Toro.
Timon: Well, I thought we were talking about a different El Toro.
Pumbaa: And then after that, you said you weren't afraid of nobody or nothing. Remember?
Timon: Did I say that?
Pumbaa: And then later, after that, you said that you were born brave, and I was just born. And then...
Timon: All right! I'll save us!

Decent, but it has problems.
3 October 2011 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

"Timon and Pumbaa" was a TV spin-off of the amazing Disney film "The Lion King". It ran for 3 seasons with a total of 85 episodes on CBS from 1995-1999.

"Timon and Pumbaa" (much like the "Aladdin" TV series) was a lot goofier and crazier when compared to the movie it was based on. For example, all of the weird characters. Especially Criminal Quint, who was actually human. Who ever thought we would see a human in a the "Liom King" series? But the goofiness does (in some ways) give the show a certain charm, I just really think Quint was a bad idea.

The animation isn't so great in this show either. I know their budget is smaller since it's a TV show, but I know they could've done better. Especially since this show was made in the '90s, and there were a LOT of cartoon shows in the '90s with great animation ("Animaniacs"; "Ren & Stimpy"; "The Simpsons"). Also this is Disney we're talking about. The biggest media company in the world! I guess they don't care that much when it comes to television.

"Timon and Pumbaa" is a decent show though. It was pretty funny, the animation was..... okay, the voice acting was great, and the show was overall pretty enjoyable. However it's not perfect, it is a little too goofy sometimes, and some episodes flat-out sucked.

Rating: 6/10 "Decent"
