Welcome... to my humble home.
If the truth be known, I've never really been a true Disney fan-- that is,
an unconditional maniac of all things Disney has ever done. I've only
liked Disney since 1989. But what's appeared in recent years has been
phenomenally cool, and it's all culminated in The Lion King. This
film is what I consider to be Disney's deepest, most mature, most
enjoyable, best animated, best developed, best musically scored, best
voiced, and pretty much all-around "best" and "most" film they've ever
done. I have certainly become a die-hard fan, and I have been since the
first minute of the first time (of five) I saw it in the theater early
last summer. And to that end, I have compiled this Web page for the use of
like-minded fans. I've done my best to collect as much stuff-- images,
text files, scripts, etc.-- as I think would be interesting to most
visitors here. And I'm always looking for more. I appreciate your
patronage and welcome your feedback. So, have fun, and Ithabise! Busa
New, with profuse thanks to Jennifer Sarantites, who generously designed
and wrote it: the Main Menu Page for this TLK
This page has made it to the limelight of print. Check out this

My rapidly expanding Text Files
This place is cool. You'll find lots of QuickTime movies, JPEGs, text
files, etc. for several Buena Vista movies simultaneously. If you want to
go straight to the
Room and skip over the preliminary inline images, that's also cool.
You'll find a lot of TLK stuff straight from the lion's mouth: all the
promo JPEGs (the first ten in the Image
Archive listing), thirteen QuickTimes (all quite good), and a couple
of sets of credits and notes which are worth checking out.
Related Home Pages
Unfortunately, until I take over the world,
there are other people who
have more TLK stuff (and cooler general Disney home pages) than you see
here. So, to give them due credit, here are links to their pages:
Josh Wilmes' Awesome Lion King Home Page at RPI.
Pictures, QuickTimes, text files, links to lots more cool
stuff (as well as his authoritative
page)-- and it has three TLK scripts, one of which is mine.

FDC Big Simba. Pictured below. Go here for information on
RADHAHA, and a bunch of delusions springing from his
monstrous split personality, which makes mine look really
amateurish. (I'm perfectly sane, and so am I.)

personality, that of Erick M. Summers of Purdue.

Movie Details Here's a link to the Movie Details,
including info on awards won (well, the Academy has decided against it--
except for the music), lots of reviews (both good and bad, both
professional and amateur) and pretty much a definitive list of general
This is a complete listing of all the bloopers in the movie that
shouldn't have been made... but, well. Nothing is perfect, not even TLK.
There are two semi-official scripts
out there, each with its own relative merits: one is ASCII and contains
minimal extraneous stuff, and is far more textually accurate than others
I've seen; the other one is formatted for MS Word for easy printing. Here
Also, since everybody seems to have his own personal HTML-format script,
here's mine. It indexes my entire image and sound archives as well as
other home pages and in fact a lot of the other info I have on this page.
I'm not counting it as a separate script, since it's essentially the ASCII
version above plus a lot of embedded HTML links.

version, v3.12: my TLK script. Last updated: May 6,
1995. This script is in a state of constant change, so
please mail me with any clarifications or additions or
subtractions or FDIVs you feel need to be
done to it. (To clarify: I merely did the majority of the
editing. It was actually compiled by Phil Pollard at
JMU. The credits are all at the end of the file.) This file
has (purported) advantages over the other one in
its conciseness of material (the ENTIRE script is there,
along with all directions and annotations, but it is minus
the more extraneous appendices that the other ones have)
and the African lyrics, as completely as I was able to
include them, from throughout the movie.
The MS Word 6.0 (PC) Version, V1.42, by Jello Biafra.
This too is very complete, and contains lots of extra
material culled from newsgroup discussions as well as a
huge set of footnotes. Enjoy. Note: This is a
binary ZIP file. You must have PKUNZIP (or an equivalent

And, to be fair, here are scripts for Beauty and the
Beast and Aladdin.
These are compiled by Ben Scripps, and quite complete. Sorry, I haven't
found one for The Little Mermaid in my travels.

The Rhythm of the Pride Lands hit store shelves nationwide on
February 28, 1995-- or at least that's what they like to tell us! Click here for the
account of my odyssey for it (which was, in time, successful). Also
for my evaluation of the CD. That is, only if you want any further details
than "YES! YES! YES! This CD rules!"

within a half-mile radius hears all the time from me anyway).
