The Lion King 1½


Nants ingonyama

Bagithi baba

Sithi uhhmm ingonyama


What's on the menu?

It could be ceviche


it's Pumbaa


I got to tell you, Timon...

that song always

gets me right here.

Yeah, Pumbaa.

Well, enough of that.

Uh, Timon,

what are you doing?

I'm fast forwarding to the part

where we come in.

But you can't go

out of order.

Au contraire,

my porcine pal.

I've got the remote.

But everyone's going

to get confused.

We got to go back

to the beginning of the story.

We're not in the beginning

of the story.

Yes, we were-

the whole time.

Yes, we were-

the whole time.

Yeah, but they don't know that.

Then why don't we

tell them our story?

- Aah!

- Aah!

Hey, I've got an idea.

Why don't we tell them

our story?

Oh, I like

the sound of that.

A little backstage tour.

Take them behind the scenes for

a revealing and intimate look...

at the story

within the story.

Because what they don't know

is how we really were there...

even though they didn't know

we were there, you know?

Couldn't have said it

better myself.

So, does this mean we're going

back to the beginning?

Oh, no, Pumbaa, no.

We're going way back...

to before the beginning.

Pride Rock.

So majestic.

So powerful.

So bizarrely named.

Pumbaa, how can a rock be proud?

It's a rock.

I think it's because a pride is

what they call a group of lions.

Oh, sure,

the lions get Pride Rock.

And what about us meerkats?

Where I come from, we didn't

have nothing to be proud of.

Why... ahem.

When I was

a young meerkat

When he was

a young meerkat

Very nice.


But maybe it would be safer...

if I just show them

where I came from.

Oh, boy! Do we get

to see where you grew up?

Yeah, Pumbaa,

but it ain't pretty.

Please remain seated while

the camera is in motion.

Here we are.

From Pride Rock

to the pit of shame.

We're so low on the food chain,

we're underground.

But you don't have

to take my word for it.

I'll just let my fellow

meerkats do the talking.

What was that,

what was what?

What was that,

what was that?

Where, what, where, where,

What was that?



before the hyena come


Dig a tunnel,

dig, dig a tunnel

When you're done,

you dig a bigger tunnel

Dig a tunnel,

dig, dig a tunnel


before the hyena come

Dig, dig a tunnel,

dig, dig a tunnel

You could dig

and never get done

Dig a tunnel,

dig, dig a tunnel

What was that?

Quick before

the hyena come, dig

Dig a tunnel

is what we do

Life's a tunnel,

we'll dig it, too

Dig a tunnel

is what we sing

Dig a tunnel

is everything

Mud and clay

is a meerkat's friend

Always more

around every bend

And when you get

to your tunnel's end


let's dig again, dig

Dig a tunnel,

dig, dig a tunnel

When it's done,

you dig a bigger tunnel

Dig a tunnel,

dig, dig a tunnel

What was that?


before the hyena come


Timon! Excuse me.

Have you seen my son?

Has he been through here?


Dig, dig a tunnel

- Uncle Max?

- Aah!

Uncle Max, relax.

Have you seen Timon?

No, I haven't,

and what a day it's been.

No fractures,

no lacerations...

no concussions, contusions,

or injuries of any sort.

As a matter of fact...

there's no sign of Timon's

handiwork anywhere.

That would be...


Heh heh heh.

Hey, everybody.

Ha ha. Nice work, Timon.

- Way to go, tunnel klutz.

- Who else could break a hole?

Four in one week-

a new record.

Not again.

What? It's called a skylight.

Ho ho.

Wow. Isn't that creative?

A skylight. Oh.

Ha ha.

I'll just have a word with him.

I- I was just trying
