"Timon in Love" is an episode from The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa.


After getting struck by cupid's arrow, Timon looks at his reflection and falls in love...with himself. However, Pumbaa feels a little left out.


"Timon in Love" begins by introducing Timon, a meerkat, and his warthog friend Pumbaa. The episode starts with Cupid shooting love arrows on the animals in the jungle. Timon sees what's going on and tries to stay away from Cupid. Cupid then shoots the meerkat with the arrow. A female meerkat appears, but Pumbaa tells Timon that there are bugs in the water, making Timon see his reflection and fall in love with himself. Timon tells Pumbaa to ask himself if he likes him back, but the warthog doesn't think he can. So Timon suggests he spends more time with himself.

Timon shows Pumbaa a picture of himself and tells the warthog that he's going on a date. Timon brushes his teeth and holds a heart-shaped box with possibly chocolate. When "Timon" arrives, Timon is ready to go on a date. While Timon and "Timon" are dating, Pumbaa feels a little left out so he follows his friend everywhere.

As it's about to get dark, Timon sits on a rock looking depressed. He tells Pumbaa that things has gone wrong between him and himself. Pumbaa tells Timon that he should go talk with himself and see what's not right and Timon agrees. After Timon chats with himself, Timon tells Pumbaa that the warthog is the problem and that he can't hang around with them anymore.

The unhappy Pumbaa sits on a rocking chair sewing. Timon shows up and asks Pumbaa to help him. The meerkat tells his friend that "Timon" wants him to meet his parents, but he's not ready for that, so Pumbaa tells him to stop seeing himself, but Timon can't because he loves himself too much. Pumbaa then suggests that Timon and himself get married. Timon asks Pumbaa to be his best man and the warthog agrees.

As Timon is about to marry himself, Cupid shows up and shoots the arrow at Timon to give him a break from his love. Timon realizes that something weird is going on and suggests that they go eat instead. As the two take a walk, Timon tells Pumbaa that he has been acting weird lately and Pumbaa tells his friend that he was going to be the father of the bride.


  • This episode could be a Valentine's Day themed episode.
  • The female meerkat bears a striking resemblance to Tatiana from "Once Upon a Timon."
