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 »


Shenzi the Hyena: Hey, I know! We'll all pretend we're monkeys and hide in a big barrel until he comes back.
Banzai the Hyena: Nah, that's stupid. Hey, we can build an environment suitable and comfortable for all species in the class known as Chimpanzee.
Shenzi the Hyena: Yeah, you get right on that.
Ed the Hyena: [speaking his gibberish language. As he talks his head bonks on the box he's standing on] Ha ha ha!
Shenzi the HyenaBanzai the Hyena: Hey, that's not bad!
Banzai the Hyena: What'd he say?
Shenzi the Hyena: I have no idea.

I still love it!
16 August 2006 | by mcandrew-1See all my reviews

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.
