Piper is a flying squirrel who makes her first and only appearance in "Saskatchewan Catch." She strikes a deal with Timon and Pumbaa, promising to fetch them some tree beetles if they help her find love.


The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa

"Saskatchewan Catch"

Timon and Pumbaa are trying to get some beetles for dinner, but the beetles live on top of huge trees, so Timon has to climb them to get the beetles. When he's up there, a flying squirrel passes in high speed and knocks him down, but Timon is able to grab some branches, until another flying squirrel, this time a female and way bigger, hits him and they both fall.

Striking Deal

The flying squirrel with Timon and Pumbaa

On land, Timon and Pumbaa decide that they will need Piper's help to get the beetles on the trees, but in exchange she wants them to get her a date with the flying squirrel that dropped Timon from the tree. They try all they can to get him down, but he can't stop flying.

Timon has an idea to put a sign that says: "STOP, fresh nuts below!" but instead of reading it, the flying squirrel hits the sign and falls down, getting trapped in a cage. A little upset, Timon calms the flying squirrel saying that he won a free dinner. The only thing they are serving in the dinner is nuts, and Piper appears. The male squirrel falls in love and they both decide to fly together and that's what they do, leaving Timon and Pumbaa without any beetles.
