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.


Pumbaa: (twice during the film) Uh...I don't do so well in crowds.

Rafiki: Look beyond what you see.

Timon: This could be the start of a beautiful...acquaintanceship.

Timon: (about Simba) He's gone? Whaddaya 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 gonna eat us!
Nala: ...So Simba has to go back to challenge his uncle and reclaim his place as king! [Timon and Pumbaa stare blankly at her.] Ohh, don't you get it?! Simba needs us! Now!

[The scene repeatedly goes back and forth between a night scene where Simba wakes up Timon and a day scene where Timon is harmed during one of Simba's antics.]
Simba: Timon, Timon! TIMON! (Timon grunts) I gotta go!
Timon: (Voice very faint) Go? Go where?
Simba: You know: Go! Bad!
Timon: [gets the idea] Oh, you mean go?! Then why didn't you say so?! Come on, let's go!
(On the log bridge)
Timon: Listen, kid, when you gotta go, you gotta go!
(On a very high tree, "Jungle Boogie" plays)
Timon: Young lion, get down from there!
Simba: Yahoo! All right! Hey, you guys look like ants down there!
Timon: I'm counting to three!
(Simba jumps onto a weak branch, it breaks)
Pumbaa: Uh oh!
(Simba continues to fall)
Timon: One! Two!
(Pumbaa jumps onto Timon, making a pillow for Simba to land on)
Timon: (Gasping for air) Threeeeee.
("The Lion Sleeps Tonight" starts again)
Simba: Timon?
Timon: Wha? Again?!
Simba: No, I'm thirsty.
(Back on the log bridge)
Timon: You know, kid, this means you'll be up again about 2 hours from now.
(Location: A river leading to an 500 ft waterfall. "Jungle Boogie" plays while Simba swims peacefully. A floating camera captures Timon swimming vigurously.)
Timon: Hang on, Simba! I'll save ya!
(Simba goes off the waterfall; Pumbaa catches him.)
("The Lion Sleeps Tonight" Plays Yet Again)
Simba: Timon? (frowns)
(Back to the log bridge)
Timon: (extremely tired) You know, I'm gonna get old walking over this thing.
(Simba Pounces Timon in the Air, "Jungle Boogie" plays for a final time.)
("The Lion Sleeps Tonight" plays for a final time)
Simba: Timon?
(Music finally stops. Timon grabs his ears in stress.)
Simba: Actually, I had a bad dream.

[Timon causes a cave-in while digging a hole.]
Max: That would be... TIMON!
