This spin-off of Disney's Hercules (1997) follows Hercules' many labors during the years he spent training how to be a hero under the tutelage of satyr Philoctetes. Olympian Gods and Goddesses, as well as Hades and Pegasus, often visit him.
Aladdin, the clever hero of Agrabah, continues his adventures with the help of his fiancee Princess Jasmine, his pet monkey Abu, Magic Carpet, Iago the greedy parrot, and of course his best friend the semi-cosmic Genie.
The lovable warthog Pumbaa and his meerkat buddy Timon carry on the "Hakuna Matata" (no worries) lifestyle, which can get them into plenty of jungle trouble. Watch these two friends from "The Lion King (1994)" as they travel on funny African adventures. Simba even stops by for a visit from time to time.Written by

"Timon and Pumbaa" was a TV spin-off of the amazing Disney film "The Lion King". It ran for 3 seasons with a total of 85 episodes on CBS from 1995-1999.
"Timon and Pumbaa" (much like the "Aladdin" TV series) was a lot goofier and crazier when compared to the movie it was based on. For example, all of the weird characters. Especially Criminal Quint, who was actually human. Who ever thought we would see a human in a the "Liom King" series? But the goofiness does (in some ways) give the show a certain charm, I just really think Quint was a bad idea.
The animation isn't so great in this show either. I know their budget is smaller since it's a TV show, but I know they could've done better. Especially since this show was made in the '90s, and there were a LOT of cartoon shows in the '90s with great animation ("Animaniacs"; "Ren & Stimpy"; "The Simpsons"). Also this is Disney we're talking about. The biggest media company in the world! I guess they don't care that much when it comes to television.
"Timon and Pumbaa" is a decent show though. It was pretty funny, the animation was..... okay, the voice acting was great, and the show was overall pretty enjoyable. However it's not perfect, it is a little too goofy sometimes, and some episodes flat-out sucked.
Rating: 6/10 "Decent"
