* I would assume it's to avoid a PG rating for rude humor. Doesn't make logical sense to me for the Rating Board to overlook blatant fart jokes just because the word fart is not used and farting is not shown, but they can and did for ''The Lion King'' and other movies, so this tactic works. That's what GettingCrapPastTheRadar is all about; implying things not too overtly so the Rating Board will overlook or ignore it.

[[WMG: Why is it perfectly acceptable to fart, discuss farting, singing a lyric that rhymes with "farted" implying that you're about to call it by name, all "in front of the kids", but heaven forbid you should actually call farting by its name in presence of the same?]]
So in "Hakuna Matata", there's this whole verse about Pumbaa's gaseous reputation. It is, in fact, Timon who actually brings up the subject. He sings "he found his aroma lacked a certain appeal, he could clear the Savannah after every meal". We see animals fleeing from the scent. We hear about how this caused Pumbaa to suffer socially. We hear "and I got downhearted", and, since the song has a tendency to rhyme, you know that the word that's coming is going to rhyme, and you know what that rhyming word is that describes the smelly, socially off-putting emissions being discussed. All this is totally okay. But once Pumbaa gets to the point of calling the aforementioned off-putting smelly emissions by their name, suddenly it is not okay. HUH?

* Interestingly, while darker coat is more desirable trait for a male lion in RealLife, it also comes with an assortment of health problems if it gets too dark. Most likely Scar is suffering from the worst side-effects of his one positive biological trait, which is why healthier Mufasa gets the higher position.

* It is uncommon, but far from unheard for two or even three male lion siblings to rule a single, unusually large pride together. When this happens, they all mate with the lionesses and treat all the cubs as their own.

*** Blaming someone else for what you did is still absolutely throwing them under the bus. Even if it wouldn't have had any concrete, tangible effect, it's still a dick move that the Hyenas are '''not''' going to like or take lightly. People -- or in this case, animals with anthropomorphized personalities -- do not always evaluate things on a strictly logical basis of benefits and effects. They're emotional creatures, and when someone who masterminded your whole scheme tries to weasel out of things by saying it's all your fault, you're going to be pissed at him.
