General Information-

So.. whada we got here?

FYI.. this page was founded by Msondo and Kimya to bring the world the most extensive information about Timon, the meerkat from Disney's hit movie The Lion King. If you have not seen this movie we highly recommend it, it is easily the best animated movie ever created and one of the best movies created this century. You'll easily recognize Timon when he appears screaming halfway in the movie where he saves the life of the young lion prince, Simba, and raises him in the jungle. The storyline of The Lion King followed that of a Shakespearean play (many see a resemblance to Hamlet). Timon appears with his warthog friend, Pumbaa, as a comedic relief.

This page will be sort of a site map to all of the information this page will offer. We will begin by listing some vital facts about Timon and link many of the facts to a separate page on this site that will offer more information on the subject. At the bottom we will put some miscellaneous facts that we find interesting. Of course, if you think we have missed something or if you are just curious feel free to email us! As far as we know, we are the authority on Timon and would be happy to answer any questions!

Did you know..

- The word "timon" means "helm" in Spanish. Timon is also the character from Shakespeare's tragedy "Timon of Athens." Also, Timon is a common name throughout Europe.

- In Paris at Euro Disney Timon has a restaurant, the Hakuna Matata Cafe. Soon in our Miscellaneous section we will show pictures from a meeting Kimya and I attended last December with various other Euro Lion King fans.

- There are many items to collect with Timon's image including plushies, cels, lithographs, t-shirts, PVC figures, porcelain figures, etc.

- There is a place named Timon. It is a small town / neighborhood just outside of Madrid, Spain. We will also have more information about our tour there when we have time. If you have any pictures from street signs or other towns with the same name, please get in contact with us! The only other place we know of is Timonium, Maryland.

- Would you like to be a meerkat? You can play one on one of the many online role playing games! If you would be interested just drop us a line and we'll point  you to the right places. :) Soon, however, we will offer some more info in the miscellaneous section.
