The Lion King 1½ is a 2004 direct-to-video animated film released by Buena Vista Home Entertainment on February 10, 2004. This middle-of-the-road feature retells the story of the 1994 blockbuster, The Lion King, in Timon and Pumbaa's perspective.


  • This could be the start of a beautiful... acquaintanceship.
  • Friends stick together to the end.
  • Just eat me now and please make it fast, I have a low threshold for pain.
  • [whispering] I see carnivores.


  • To find Hakuna Matata, you must look beyond what you see.
  • Any story worth telling is worth telling twice.


[from trailer]
Timon: That's it Pumbaa. My fuse, it's genius. There! Now this titles are knock out. OW!! Not reality!?

Pumbaa: Uh-oh. I don't do some well a crowds, maybe better go around.
Timon: Don't you know, sure isn't to be right home to straight line, follow me. Dang grow. Dang grow! I'm watchin' twinkle. I'm walking here.

Pumbaa: This bowlin' from porcupines. [spits the quills] Wasn't for best idea, huh?
Timon: Yeah, well think about the snappy turtles. Ow-ah-ahaha!
Pumbaa: That was traitor to mark.

Timon: [about Simba] He's gone?! What do you mean: He's gone?!
Nala: It's just like the baboon said. The king has returned. [Timon and Pumbaa stare at her blankly] [sighs] You guys want me to go over it again?
Timon: Yes please, but be a dear and skip to the part about Simba. Not that your childhood wasn't fascinating.
Nala: Okay. Look, Simba's the rightful king, but after he disappeared, Scar proclaimed himself the king and formed an alliance with the hyenas...
[As Nala talks, Timon and Pumbaa stop listening.]
Pumbaa: [thinks] Poor Simba. The treachery! The villainy! The sheer indescribable horror!
Timon: [thinks] Blah blah blah. Why is she TOYING with us? This crazy chick is going to eat us.
Nala: ...So Simba has to go home to challenge his uncle and reclaim his place as king. [Timon and Pumbaa stare blankly at her.] Ohh, you don't get it?! Simba needs us. Now!
Timon: [indignant] He needs us? Then he shouldn't have left us! If he wants to run off to be "His Highness", well, I say, don't let the branches hit you on the way out. Leave Hakuna Matata to someone who appreciates it. [He strides off stubbornly]
Pumbaa: But, Timon... It's not really Hakuna Matata without Simba.
Timon: What's gotten into you? Not Hakuna Matata? That's crazy talk. Crazy talk, I tell you! Nothing's changed here. We had Hakuna Matata before Simba, and we have still got it now.
Pumbaa: We got to go help our friend, Timon.
Timon: Et tu, Pumbaa? You're just gonna walk away, give up on all this? What happened to "friends stick together to the end"? Huh? Huh? Huh?
Pumbaa: [incisively] I was about to ask you the same thing.
[Pumbaa turns and stalks off. He looks back over his shoulder to see Timon flopping down in the bed.]
Timon: [stubbornly] I got everything I ever wanted right here.
[Pumbaa turns and trots off, a tear in his eye. Timon lies in the bed, tapping his toe. He begins to soliloquize to convince himself he's doing the right thing.]
Timon: Now, this is more like it. ELBOW ROOM! ["Elbow room" echoes an absurd number of times as the camera pulls back repeatedly; Timon collapses in despair] Uhhhh. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.

[at the end of the film]
Timon: Well, that's it. The big wrap-up. The happy ending. The grand finale.
Pumbaa: It's over already?
Timon: Well, Pumbaa. That's the thing about endings. They come at the end.
Pumbaa: Oh, can we watch it again?
Timon: Pumbaa, we just saw it. Maybe tomorrow.
Timon's Mother: [enters] Hey, what are you guys doing? [notices the film and gasps] You didn't tell me you were watching the movie. I want to watch, too!
Timon: Mom, we just finished! Show's over!
Mom: Well, you're just going to have to rewind it. [runs the film back]
Timon: Mom!
Mom: Uncle Max! We're going to watch the movie!
Timon: Oh, no!
Max: [enters with popcorn] Hey, I brought extra butter!
Simba: [enters] Hey, you guys are watching the movie?
Rafiki: [enters with laughter] Any story worth telling is worth telling twice.
[many a Disney characters enters the theater, starting with Mickey Mouse]
Timon: What the?!
Snow White: Oh, excuse me.
Dwarves: [one by one, save for Grumpy] Excuse me.
Grumpy: Get out of the way.
Timon: Who is this crowd?! Hey! Down in front!
[Stitch bounces repeatedly from one character to another]
Goofy: Gawrsh!
Stitch: Aloha!
[Donald quacks angrily at Stitch. Peter Pan crows like a rooster and the Lost Boys dog pile on him]
Timon: Watch it! [he gets stuck in between two characters, Terk and Victor, then approaches Pumbaa after he gets launched by Dumbo] Okay, buddy. You win.
Pumbaa: Sure you don't mind?
Timon: Hakuna matata. [he grabs the remote and starts the film]
Pumbaa: Timon, I still don't do so well in crowds.
