Added DiffLines:

* AmusingInjuries: Befitting the show's DenserAndWackier take. It comes to a head in the "Stand By Me" musical short where Pumbaa receives injury after injury while Timon is unscathed. All because Pumbaa won't/can't stand by him.

* AnimationBump: From episode 47 onwards, the animation looks different. There is belief that it was ''not'' produced by Walt Disney Television animation; however, this hasn't been confirmed.

* CanonDiscontinuity: The midquel focusing on Timon and Pumbaa's lives and their first meeting ignores this series's events. As such, the circumstances and reasons for Timon leaving the meerkat colony are wildly different.

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: See DenserAndWackier above, but while this series is not without its serious or emotional moments, it's still very much sillier than the films.

Despite this, it is generally considered fairly harmless, [[SoOkayItsAverage albeit without many redeeming qualities]]. Reruns aired on Toon Disney for about a decade after its cancellation, but has rarely been seen on any networks since.

''The Lion's King's Timon & Pumbaa'' is an American cartoon starring the eponymous pair from Disney's ''Disney/TheLionKing'' franchise. The show first aired on Creator/{{CBS}}. It premiered in 1995, between the first two movies. It has been rerunning on various Creator/{{Disney}} channels ever since. Instead of the realistic style of the movie, it goes for SurrealHumor. The show seems to borrow a lot of its humor from both ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' and ''{{Animaniacs}}'', which makes it a distinct change of pace from the movies.

The premise of the show is pretty simple. Timon and Pumbaa basically WalkTheEarth and have some sort of adventure wherever they go, often encountering their enemies Quint and Smolder. The show is heavily gag based, with little of the character depth of the film. It introduced many settings besides the African Savannah, as well as {{Hammerspace}}. In the long run, while not entirely considered non-canon, it takes a bit of a stretch of the imagination to fit in with the film.
