Hyenas in the Timon&Pumbaa-Show
The picture I use by permission from Hyena Girl
I suppose there
are a lot of people who know about the Timon&Pumbaa-Show. For
those who don't know:
The Timon&Pumbaa-Show is a cartoon-series, where Timon and Pumbaa experience adventures. Pity, they do jobs for money, wear clothes and stuff like that, non-animal-actions.
Anyway, there are few series with the hyenas playing a role. You never know, which series are that, so I wrote down the names of the series, the original and the german-one, so you can see, wether the serie today is with the hyenas or not, hope I did you hyena-lovers a favour with that :-)
There are only two series I know, which are with Shenzi, Banzai and Ed as the main characters, their names are:
German: So ein Affenzirkus
Story: There is a little monkey called Simon who wants to become famous. He is a member of a flying circus, and falls out of the machine. At the same time, our three friends (Shenzi, Ed & Banzai) walk through the savanna, searching for food. Banzai just said "I'm so hungry, I could eat a...a...circus monkey!" when a box and the little monkey land on them. The hyenas are amazed, naturally, they try to catch him, using sometimes a bit...unnatural methodes. At the end, the mokey flees in a cannon. Banzai presses down the "launch"-button and so the monkey comes back into his plane. Banzai ends with the words "Oh, I'm so hungry, I could eat a whale." A whale lands on them...
Talk A Yolk
German: Das Gelbe Vom Ei
Story: The opening scene: Shenzi, Banzai and Ed are sleeping in their cave. Shenzi wakes up, straightens and wakes up Banzai in a very mean way. When she got out of the cave, she sees the breakfeast! An ostrich with an egg. Shenzi is possessed by the idea to get this egg. By the way, the ostrich mother is REALLY stupid. They try different plans, fist of all just grabbing the egg. Then dropping a rock on the ostrich. Digging a tunnel wich was Banzai's idea. They fail all. He tries to make Shenzi forget about the egg, but she is so possessed by the idea, that she doesn't want to. Ed playes with a butterfly. When he tries to catch it, he slides and crushes in a hill of leaves. There Shenzi has THE idea. They dress up as ostriches and finally go home with the egg. But now a giant chicken crushes it's egg and attacks our hyenas. They come out on the other site of the world (in the serie China, but it has to be USA), very poor and hurt. Stupid ostriches!
German: Pumbaa, Der Weise
Story: Pumbaa suddenly is supposed to be very wise, all the animals of the dschungle, one hyena under them, want to listen to his words of wisdom, they even buy a book he wrote and want him to sign it. But then the animals beginn to argue about what the deeper sin of Pumbaa's phrases is. They nearly fight against each other, like in a religous war, when Pumbaa says something very stupid and they loose their belief in him.
German: Weltraum Gladiatoren
Story: At first, we see Timon, flying from right to left and back through the screen. Then we hear enthusiastic laughers. Then we see our three hyenas playing with Timon. They use him as a volleyball. Banzai against Shenzi and Ed. When Banzai smashes, Timon lands in the out ( in a tree ). Pumbaa arrives and scarres our friends away. Then Timon and Pumbaa are taken to Pluto with a spaceship, become gladiators and return with the spaceship. When Timon sees the hyenas, he wants vengeance and lifts them up, then lets them fall, again and again. We only can hear the painful screams of the hyenas. What a cruel meerkat!
German: Timon und Pumbaa die Bodyguards
In the first scene, there is a little leopardress, hunted by Banzai. He corners
her in front of a rock. Suddenly, a giant monkey falls on the poor hyena. Banzai
attacks the painful appearence, but after a short struggle in a cloud of dust,
he decides that it's better to escape as long as he can. Well, the monkey is
more than twice as big as our little Banzai!
After that, Timon and Pumbaa arrive and become the leopard's king's daughter's bodyguards.
Once Upon A Timon
Story: It's the story of Timon, how he got to know Pumbaa, virtually his verse in "Hakuna Matata". He becomes banished from his colonie. Sad he walks through the savanna, until he reaches the jungle. And he walks directly in Ed's mouth. He can escape, but only a few yards, he flees in the hyena's den. There he meets Pumbaa. "Did the hyenas invite you for dinner, too?" He asks. "Well, we ARE the dinner!" Timon cries. They do a unlogical action, that hurls the hyenas away.
Do YOU know the name?
There are several series I know the story, but I forgot the name. Perhaps one of you can help me?
Story 1: Timon and Pumbaa cook a salsa made of insects. The other animals of the jungle (one hyena under them) love this salsa (because they don't know what it's made of). Timon and Pumbaa become rich and famous, until Pumbaa defeats, that the salsa is made of insects. When they return to the jungle, the hyena and the other animals eat their secret store of salsa up.
Story 2: The third story belongs to the picture up there ( thank you very much, Hyena Girl! ), but I don't know this serie, perhaps one of you can help?
