Does anyone have some background or behind the scenes info explaining the show?

Timon and Pumbaa were popular characters so making a spinoff with them made sense business wise.

It was a goofball comedy, and not a good one.

Of course it's my opinion, whose opinion would it be? I'm not saying anybody is wrong for liking it....

Some of those episodes with the hyenas were the best stuff LK has given us, imo.

On the other hand, Timon is a monster to Pumbaa in the show. Just check out the parody of the song Stand by Me, in which he enjoys Pumbaa getting tortured, or the episode South Sea Sick, where he forced Pumbaa to keep pretending to be sick so he can torture him. If I didn't hate Pumbaa already, it would be painful to watch.

This show needs more love on these boards. I feel like everyone is against it or doesn't care.

Well it's hard to find to watch anymore. It never got a proper dvd release that i know of. I'm hoping that it shows up on itunes in the near future since disney put a few of their late 80's to early 90's shows there.

I know I was a bit harsh towards the show but I haven't seen it since the 90's and i'm willing to give the show a second chance.

I was only made aware of this show through some Wikipedia page a couple years ago, and I was interested, but to me The Lion King is about the lions, so I didn't think to investigate it.

I... have mixed feelings! I'm generally not so much a fan of goofy comedy, while I am a fan of that sketchy kind of 90's animation, but I'm also a fan of believability and not anthropomorphising animal characters excessively (referencing the human world, standing on two legs, houses having features that are human-designed and would be difficult for animals to use, like doorknobs) and staying true to canon/character.

I might check it out if I have a couple of afternoons free and see what I think.
