What if Simba HAD told Timon and Pumba about his past?

The most likely scene would be when they were talking about the Great Kings of the past. What if Simba had actually confided in them at that point that he was the son of King Mufasa and had accidentally caused a stampede that resulted in Mufasa's death?

I don't think Timon and Pumbaa would leave Simba for that. I guess they would try to convince him about that it was not his fault.

I think Timon and Pumbaa would have tried to cheer him up and tell him to use "Hakuna Matata" to forget his troubles.

This is the kind of situation that Timon would force a 'don't tell us about your problems' sort of deal while invoking Hakuna Matata. Remember the part where his reaction was "Good, we don't wanna hear hear about it!" from the movie?

I suspect that a large part of Hakuna Matata, with it being "no worries" and all, is that you have to avoid all unpleasantness as much as you can, even if you have to force yourself to keep running from it if it's the last thing you can do. Why do you think Simba was so unprepared to handle the past coming up when Nala and Rafiki found him?

I can see Pumbaa being willing, but unable to offer any good and genuine advice to Simba, while Timon would win every single time with 'instead of talking about your past, how about some shinies to distract you with!"

I think they would stay with him anyway and try to make him happy :)

Timone would have cut Simba off and not want to hear about it

I think that they probably would have been shocked (as seen in the movie), but since they are what they are, probably wouldn't have worried about it that much. When Nala found the trio, they were dumbfounded by the reveal at first but it was soon forgotten. Of course, TLK 3 shows more of Timon and Pumbaa's backstory and it's clear that Timon is more hesitant to help Simba to take back the throne than Pumbaa, but eventually does so. So I guess they would have stood by his side, no matter when he had told them. But that's just my guess :)
