YMMV: Timon & Pumbaa

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: In "Guatemala Malarkey", Timon wonders if they put any traps in the temple if people steal a treasure chest containing the "golden fruitfly". The ground starts to shake, and then some pretty random things happen, including knifes and axes being thrown at Timon and Pumbaa, ghosts, a dragon surrounded by fire, a clown throwing confetti, a girl water skiing on the water surrounding Timon and Pumbaa, and fireworks. Then, an announcer says "We hope you've enjoyed tonight's performance of 'The Destruction of the Lost, Forgotten, Abandoned Temple Shrine of the Sacred, Glorious Fruit Fly!' Please, exit through the doors to your left. Thank you!" After this, Timon and Pumbaa talk about the value of what's in the treasure chest.
  • Broken Base: Fans of the original movie are divided when it comes to this series due to it's lack of depth and being gag based instead of character based.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Rafiki's story of Timon giving up everything he could ever want to be with his friend.
  • Cult Classic: To some who grew up with it.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Cheetata and Cheetato.
  • Fanon Discontinuity
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: One episode has a talking statue order Timon to bring him the airplane warning light from the Empire State Building, which he does. This is followed by a shot of the Empire State Building with several planes crashed into it.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One episode ("Werehogs of London") featured Pumbaa apparently succumbing to "the curse of the Werehog."
  • Ho Yay: You know, the popular "Stand by Me" parody music video sung by Timon about how he needs Pumbaa? Yeah, that. It's originally a romantic song which replaces "darling" with "Pumbaa" in the lyrics. You won't see it the same way again.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff plus National Stereotypes: Defied and lampshaded by Culinary Quint, a Frenchman who doesn't love Jerry Lewis.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Boy Beaver crossed it in Amusement Bark, by having the Log Flume operator Bound and Gagged, then messing with the controls to endanger Timon and Pumbaa while they were on the ride. His father was greatly appalled at this.
  • Periphery Demographic: As it features an all-adult cast it has this to so!e degree.
  • Seasonal Rot: Generally agreed to be this when Studio B. Animation took over.
  • Snark Bait: At best, usually.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: The show has very little depth or likeable/relatable/sympathetic characters.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: The other characters from the film only appear sparsely, despite getting a few enjoyable Days In The Limelight in the starting points of the series. Some, like Nala and Sarabi, don't appear at all, although that's probably because they weren't important to begin with.
