Twilight Sparkle's Retro Media Library


It's really a bit of before the beginning of The Lion King, where Timon and the other meerkats live in a tunnel, to hide from the hyenas. Suddenly, while Timon tries to search for beyond what he sees, he runs into a warthog named Pumbaa. After that, it takes place during the original Lion King movie. Along the way, Timon and Pumbaa find two beds made of straw, enter the elephant graveyard, flee from a stampede, until they find the jungle, where they found Hakuna Matata (a.k.a. no worries). This is where they met Simba, lying in the deserted land. But when they find out that Simba is going back to Pride Rock, the hyenas are there. While Simba fights Scar, the meerkats are digging tunnels to fight off the hyenas. At the end, everyone is at a movie theater watching the film, including characters from various Disney classics.
