He eventually decides to rescue Pumbaa. This could imply that Timon is risking his life for Pumbaa, similar to how he risked his life defeating the hyena clan in The Lion King 11/2. This doubles as an Awesome moment.
  • Africa-Dabra!: When Pumbaa sees Timon being humiliated as he's struggling to pull Rabbit out of his hat (due to Pumbaa trapping him in a cage), he strips off Rabbit's fur to disguise himself as a bunny, therefore helping his friend win the talent show.

  • French Fried: When Timon and Pumbaa are about to eat a snail, they find out that he can talk and sing and has a good humored attitude, making them realize that he's too likable to be eaten. Therefore, they befriend the snail and give him a name, which is Speedy.
  • Ocean Commotion: Speedy vouching for Timon and Pumbaa when the two are about to be thrown off the ship by Captain Quint for being stowaways.
  • Unlucky in Lesotho: The ending of the episode, which is when Timon praises the panther kitten for saving him from some major humiliation Ned the Elephant was about to cause. The panther cuddles Pumbaa and gets embraced by Timon.
  • Swiss Missed: When Fronk sees that the clock is broken and claims that there is no way he can fix it by noon (which is when clock inspector Clockwork Quint shows up to check on the clock), Pumbaa gets idea, which is for him and Timon to make it seem like the clock is fixed to prevent Fronk from getting fired from his job, which was Quint's revenge plan for not being chosen to be the town's timekeeper.
  • Timon standing up for Pumbaa whenever someone insults him or is being mean to him. One particular example is in "Animal Barn". When Mr. Pig calls Pumbaa a nobody, Timon becomes enraged and immediately confronts him by telling him that no one should talk to Pumbaa like that except for himself. This also doubles as an awesome moment.
