A nice companion
Pumbaa is an important character in the animated film The Lion King from Disney Studios. It tells the story of Simba, the young lion who is destined to become the king of the savannah after his father. However, one day Simba is in danger and his father Mufasa comes to his rescue. After taking Simba to safety, he finds himself on the edge of a cliff holding on to one leg. Scar, his brother who had always been jealous of him, passes by and takes the opportunity to push him to his death. He then blames Simba and encourages him to leave. This gives him the opportunity to finally become king instead of his brother. In the forest, Simba is adopted by Timon and Pumbaa, a meerkat and a warthog. Pumbaa, like his friend, has a philosophy of life that leads him to never take things seriously. However, when Nala, SImba’s childhood friend, urges him to come and take back his place on the throne, Timon and Pumbaa commit to helping him fight Scar and his armies.
