History YMMV / TimonAndPumbaa

Go To



* BrokenBase: Fans of [[Disney/TheLionKing the original movie]] are divided when it comes to this series. There are some who consider it to be a good and worthy SpinOff of the film, some who think it's a good show but prefer to think of it as [[AlternateContinuity its own canon]], and then there are some who [[FanonDiscontinuity ignore it entirely]]. One of the reasons is for it being mainly just about Timon and Pumbaa.

to:

* BizarroEpisode: "Amazon Quiver" falls into this, as Timon and Pumbaa get trapped inside a hollow tree by a ravenous panther and wait out the predator until the year 2090, where the three become elderly and the amazon becomes futuristic.

Added DiffLines:

** Episodes like ("Congo On Like This") and ("Shake Your Djibouti") have Timon & Pumbaa being afraid of Simba for the possibility of him eating them or questioning how good of a lion he is because he isn't as violent as a "lion should be". In ''WesternAnimation/TheLionKing2019'', Timon and Pumbaa have friends who imply he's not a "real lion" for having a laidback personality and are also afraid of him eating them because of his species.


* {{SugarWiki/Awesome Art}}: While any episode sent to [[Creator/WaltDisneyAnimationStudios Walt Disney Animation Australia]] is sure to be visually stellar, "Stand By Me" (which was actually colored digitally and released in theaters), "Forbidden Pumbaa", "Beethoven's Whiff/Bumble in the Jungle" and "Jamaica Mistake" are nearly film quality.

** Well, Creator/Nathan Lane ''[[WordOfDante did]]'' [[WordOfDante call them "Disney's first gay couple."]] It helps that Lane himself is gay.

Added DiffLines:

** Zazu is much less nice than he is in the cartoon (although still has a heart), but it's because he's under constant pressure to work and due to a mix-up he doesn't get a proper day off. Then again, Eberhard Prüter's performance in the German version did shape [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants future]] [[WesternAnimation/BibiUndTina roles]].


* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Timon and Pumbaa is so popular in Arab World, and even ''[[AdaptationDisplacement more known than]] [[Disney/TheLionKing the original movie]]''. it difinitely helps that Mohamed Henedy, a popular Egyptian actor, voices Timon in the franchise (except WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard, due to stop using the egyptian accent in Disney's new Arabic dubs).

**The title cards for the show are also beautiful, with "To Kilamanjaro Bird" being the best example.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The other characters from the film only appear sparsely, despite getting a few enjoyable [[ADayInTheLimelight Days In The Limelight]] in the starting points of the series. Then there are the original characters of the series, who typically disapear after about one or two episodes.

*{{They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot}}: "Beetle Romania", judging from its title card, could have mined endless humor from the idea of Timon and Pumbaa being fortune tellers, but instead it's just another {{Fantastic Voyage Plot}}.

Added DiffLines:

*JerkassWoobie: Timon has this going for him. Sure, he's manipulative, greedy and short-tempered but he has his fair share of sympathetic moments and generally gets tortured worse than Pumbaa. Just look at his tearful reaction to being banished in "Once Upon A Timon".


* EnsembleDarkhorse: Any time a character from the films shows up, expect them to steal the show.
