Gotta go with hyena trio. I like T&P, but I find I enjoy the hyena trio more. Heck, I tend to like scenes that include the trio best in TLK 1 1/2, and that's T&P's movie! And as for the reason why the hyenas are preferred over T&P so much in the fandom, the marketing probably has a lot to do with it. Between their own show and film, Timon and Pumbaa just feel overused, whereas the hyenas always get these short-but-sweet appearances. Comic relief characters are usually better in small doses. When you make them the main stars, a lot of their funny can wear off, and it can begin to feel like they've overstayed their welcome.

To add to what PrincessKiara said, I think Timon and Pumbaa are kinda cute. They have some cute moments at the very least. I mean just look at Pumbaa's big ol' puppy dog eyes here:


I wouldn't go so far as to say the hyenas are ugly, though the film doesn't exactly present them in a very appealing light, either. And I can't think of any moments they had that would be regarded as all that cute.

So from the standpoint of most parents, Timon and Pumbaa would be far more marketable. Parents would want their children to side with the good guys. I don't think the hyenas are evil, but I can see why parents may see them that way, or at least see them as undesirable. They sided with Scar, aided him in killing Mufasa and trying to kill Simba, and killed Scar in the end (it was justified but still). The only thing Timon and Pumbaa are guilty of is instilling a mindset in Simba that isn't always right (though the wisdom of not getting overly-stressed about problems isn't without merit), and Timon and Pumbaa didn't know it wasn't always right, or at least didn't think they would have any huge problems to deal with given their situation.
