Cartoon Production Information:
The animated series featured the pair's misadventures both in and out of the jungle, foraging for grubs and trying to lead a carefree lifestyle. Actors Nathan Lane (Timon) and Ernie Sabella (Pumbaa) reprised the roles they had created in The Lion King. Other carryovers from the film were Rafiki the baboon, the Hyenas and Zazu, each of whom appeared in brief segments between the Timon & Pumbaa featurettes.
The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa relied on the slapstick humor that had worked so well in the film, setting the antics to classical music in the finest Bugs Bunny tradition. The show lasted two seasons on Saturday morning before reappearing on cable's Disney Channel and Toon Disney.
