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.

The circle of life will never be the same.

Did You Know?
Timon's story of leaving the meerkat colony is based on a short scene deleted from "Hakuna Matata" in The Lion King
(1994). See more
In the 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight' sequence [in the French track], after Timon and Pumbaa have catapulted into a tree, in the song you can hear a gasping noise. The song was taken from the first Lion King and the noise was Nala gasping for breath after Simba pulled her into the water. See more
