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.

We're food for other animals! A moveable feast, feared by no-one and eaten by all!
But when they die, they become the grass, and we eat the grass, right?
Not exactly. We can't digest grass. We're grass intolerant.
The first few credits "fall apart." See more
