The lovable warthog Pumbaa and his meerkat buddy Timon carry on the "Hakuna Matata" (no worries) lifestyle, which can get them into plenty of jungle trouble. Watch these two friends from "The Lion King (1994)" as they travel on funny African adventures. Simba even stops by for a visit from time to time.Written by
Current international broadcasts crop the entire series to the 16:9 widescreen format, However, the Disney+ streaming in North America retains the series in its original 4:3 full screen format. See more »
Okay yeah, "Timon and Pumbaa" isn't exactly a Disney masterpiece, but personally, I love the show. Yes, the animation is pretty much crap. Yes, a lot of the plot lines are incredibly simple if not stupid (I wanted to shoot myself when I realized I had spent 15 minutes watching T&P trying to hit a golf ball). But for every cliché loony-tunes rip-off, there are a lot of really cute, really funny moments in the show. Episodes such as when Timon's "mom" comes to dinner or that gorilla mistakes T&P for babies or when T&P find Pumbaa Jr. or the episode "Bumble in the Jungle" (aka Fantasia Toon Dinsey Style)...these are the episodes that make me really wish Disney would put this show on DVD. And even in some of the dumber episodes, there are always one or two moments when you find yourself laughing at the crazy banter between T&P (example- in Uganda be an Elephant- check out the "backwards not forgetting" sequence). Face it, these two are the animated version of Abbott and Costello. Personally, I'll latch upon any outlet I can to watch these two.
