I absolutely love The Lion King. My favourite character is Mufasa, although Simba comes in as a close second. In The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, I really like Kovu, too. It doesn't really make a big difference, and I don't want to sound critical, but Paragraph 4 of Hakuna Matata is missing a few words, which Timon says. Like this: Pumbaa: And, oh, the shame Timon: He was ashamed Pumbaa: Thought-a changin' my name Timon: What's in a name? Pumbaa: And I got downhearted Timon: How d'ya feel? Pumbaa: Ev'rytime... I hope I'm not wrong!
