The Lion King Cartoon
If you might have wondered which funny actors voiced these two characters, don't worry, you'll soon get to know them.
Timon & Pumbaa
Timon was a wise-cracking and a self-absorbed meerkat who always claimed Pumbaa's ideas as his. While Pumbaa always had flatulence issues but still was also a fierce warrior, who always charges into battle like a battering ram, and takes a great offense whenever anyone who is not his friend calls him a pig, at which point he exclaims "They call me Mister pig!" and then screams while charging. Unlike real meerkats, Timon can walk on his hind legs, while in real life, meerkats walk on all four legs and can only stand on their hind ones.
The person who portrayed Timon was Nathan Lane, an American actor and writer.
Nathan Lane (Timon)
While Pumbaa was voiced by Ernie Sabella, an American actor (in all of his traditionally animated speaking appearances), and was portrayed by Tom Alan Robbins in the original cast of the Broadway musical.
Ernie Sabella (Voice of Pumbaa)
At first, Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella came to audition for the roles of the hyenas, but the producers saw how well they worked together and decided to give them the roles of Timon and Pumbaa.
