Timon and Pumbaa

From Academic Kids

The Lion King's Timon and Pumbaa is a Disney children's animated series that premiered from 1995 to 1998. After 1998, a new director took over, causing a drop in popularity. The last episode was in 1999, but was never aired on the major networks.

It stars Timon, a meerkat, and Pumbaa, a warthog, both characters from the Disney animated films The Lion King and The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. On February 10, 2004, they starred in their own feature film, The Lion King 1 which takes place behind the events of The Lion King. Ernie Sabella and Kevin Schon provide the voices of Pumbaa and Timon, although Timon was voiced by Nathan Lane in The Lion King, The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, and The Lion King 1.

There are possibly 80 22-minute episodes in all, most consisting of two or three shorter segments.
