"Saskatchewan Catch" is an episode from The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa. It is also one of the episodes in Around the World with Timon & Pumbaa.


Timon and Pumbaa help a female flying squirrel find love in return for her to fetch them some tree beetles. But is she to be trusted?


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.

On land, Timon and Pumbaa decide that they will need the female squirrel'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 the female flying squirrel 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.


  • First episode in which Timon's voice is done by Quinton Flynn.
  • Flying squirrels are not capable of powered flight like birds or bats; instead, they glide between trees.[1]
