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.

There is a part in which Pumbaa and Timon argue about whether to help Simba or not, and Timon refuses to go with Pumbaa but eventually changes his mind. This part is loosely based in the added part of "Disney's The Lion King" children's novel, written by Gina Ingoglia. See more
When Timon is rewinding the movie at the end, the Disney logo at the beginning plays like it's in fast-foward, instead of rewind. See more
