Why did they choose to have Pumbaa fart?

I thought the part of Hakuna Matata that mentioned his "issue" was pretty funny, not because I like farts, per se, but just the way it was handled. But that was only after a rewatch of the movie. I hated Timon and Pumba before. Now I think they're ok in this movie, but gratingly annoying in the second and boring in the third.

Well, really the thing even though I'm not a fan of bathroom humor, that in Pumbaa's case it shows that he does have a problem and an one that makes him ashamed, but hat Timon is his friend who stays by his side even though it's not nice to be around :oops: They really didn't make the sound in a super obvious way more like having the grass wilt and all the animals run away. It does show that Pumbaa is a caring nice character in spite of his problem and makes him more sympathetic. Pumbaa is a warthog as well and they do not smell all that great to begin with! :P

They are more tasteful about it in TLK when they are talking about stars and Pumbaa says they're burning balls of gas (that's true 8-) But Timon says "With you, everything's gas" so not too bad really. TLK has a lot of funny moments but I was found of Bunga's fart joke in ROTR it was way over the top and just gross. You can joke about Bunga's smell and it be more funny (he's a honey badger and they do smell bad) like when they have small animals running away from Bunga or him being the first to be found in hide and seek.

I don't think Pumbaa is stupid, I think he's just too trusting and easygoing to let Timon take credit for his ideas.
