Timon is the lovable little meerkat sidekick from
the 1994 hit Walt Disney film 'The Lion King.' Timon can also be
found in The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, The Lion King 1 1/2,
Mickey's House of Villains, and Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed
in at the House of Mouse. He also appeared in the television shows
House of Mouse, Timon and Pumbaa, and Mickey Mouse Works. Timon is
in video games like The Lion King, Kingdom Hearts 2, The Lion King:
Simba's Mighty Adventures, and The Lion King 1 1/2. The Lion King
characters have a vast array of other merchandise as well.
Timon was an outcast with his
buddy Pumbaa until Simba showed up. The three
made their home wherever they wanted. After meeting Simba and going
back to help him defeat Scar, they made the Pride Lands their
new home. Timon has a mother and an uncle (so
we are told). He has
many allies: Pumbaa (his
best friend), Zazu, Rafiki, Nala, and Simba.
His enemies include Scar and all the cruel Hyenas.
He has brown fur and dark colored fingers, along
with his vibrant red hair. He is very funny, and often makes jokes
of the situation. Two of his well known phrases are 'Hakuna Matata!
It means no worries,' and 'You got to put your past behind you.'
Timon was animated by Mike Surrey, and has also
been voiced by quite a few people of the years, but most notably
Timon can be found at Disney parks around the
world. He was be found in It's a Small World (Disneyland), Festival
of the Lion King (Disney's Animal Kingdom), Circle of Life: An
Environmental Fable (Epcot), and during the nighttime spectacular
