Timon and Pumbaa start to watch the original Lion King movie, but Timon keeps insisting to fast forward to when they come in, because they weren't seen in the beginning of the story or anywhere until halfway through. Pumbaa suggests telling the audience their story, which begins before Simba's journey begins. Through this, we meet Timon's mother and Uncle Max, discover why he left his meerkat colony, where he learned Hakuna Matata, how he meets Pumbaa, and the perils they encountered while searching for their dream home.

In the film, Pride Rock is shown as being very close to where the "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" sequence takes place. In the first film, this is not the case as Pride Rock is nowhere in sight. See more
Timon the sentry? Why don't you save the hyenas the trouble and kill me now? JUST KILL ME NOW!
He has a point.
All you have to do is watch for hyenas and yell if you see one. Look at Iron Joe.
