Start of Season
"Boara Boara" is the first segment of the first episode of Season 1 of The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa.
At the start of the episode, Timon and Pumbaa are intending to go skiing, but they end up in a tropical isle called Bora Bora. They decide to stay at the beach instead, until three natives kidnap Pumbaa. At first, they try to cook Pumbaa, but their leader appears and sees Pumbaa. He smacks his henchmen on their heads with his staff, because he thinks Pumbaa is their god-king.
Timon goes through difficult situations to rescue Pumbaa, and when he finds him, he is surprised that the natives made Pumbaa their king. Timon gets angry at his friend for having him worried that the natives were going to turn him into bacon, and he throws Pumbaa's crown away, breaking it, and tries to leave, but is stopped by the natives.
Timon is put in a basket with flowers, making the meerkat think that he's the new god-king, but he is actually going to be thrown into a volcano as a sacrifice. He begs not to be thrown into the volcano and says he'll do anything in return, so the Natives turn him into a servant of the god-king Pumbaa.
After a while, the leader asks Pumbaa to restore their fire. Using his mind, Pumbaa makes fire, but right after it, he accidentally makes it rain. The Natives consider him an impostor and go after him and Timon. They both run away by playing "samba" to distract the natives. When the natives keep dancing, their leader hits each of them on the head with his staff.
The three natives then take off their costumes, revealing themselves to be university students, and go back to the college, leaving their leader begging them to come back so they don't lose their deposits, hinting that he is also a college student. After escaping the natives, Timon and Pumbaa go back to the beach but find civilization.
