"Around the World with Timon & Pumbaa" is a special episode from The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa. The straight-to-video is a recapitulation of six episodes from the television series and the first of three volume compilations about Timon and Pumbaa. The film starts with a storm sequence, during which a lightning bolt strikes Pumbaa, and he loses his memories. In order to recover the lost memories, Timon tells Pumbaa stories about their adventures together. Timon tells Pumbaa the story of the three natives, but after the story is complete, the warthog still cannot remember anything. Taking a different approach to the situation, Timon decides to show his friend pictures in order to revive the warthog's memories.
The Desert is a recurring location in The Lion King universe. Sometime after escaping the hyenas in the gorge, Simba collapses from exhaustion due to the humidity in the desert. A flock of vultures locates Simba's body and flies down to consume his body until Timon and Pumbaa prevent this by playing their game of "bowling for buzzards." Pumbaa first notices the prince's body, believing he is still alive. Timon briefly sniffs Simba and lifts his paw, revealing that he is a lion. Both friends contemplate whether to adopt Simba, eventually agreeing to, and revive the cub near the oasis. When Simba regains consciousness, he thanks the two for their help and depressingly walks back into the desert. There, Timon and Pumbaa tell the cub how to solve his troubles through "Hakuna Matata."
