Cartoon Summary:

A young lion cub, Simba, struggles to follow in the regal paw prints of his father, King Mufasa, after Mufasa is killed through the treachery of his uncle Scar. Simba is convinced that he is actually responsible for his father's death, and Scar urges him to run away from the Pride lands and never return.

Frightened and guilt-stricken, Simba flees into exile where he is befriended by Pumbaa, a warmhearted warthog, and Timon, his freewheeling Meerkat companion. Simba adopts their attitude of "Hakuna Matata" (no worries), until he matures into an adult lion.

When his childhood friend, Nala, arrives on the scene, Simba is persuaded to take his rightful place as king, returning to the Pride lands which have suffered under Scar's reign.

Trite, predictable boring and made more so by the homogonous pap music of Elton John.
Visually striking, yes but that's about it.
Timon and Pumbaa are what made Jar Jar Binks possible and they make...  (read more)
