Vintage Collectible Timon and Pumba Piggy Bank. Plastic. Approx. 8 inches high x 9 inches long.
Timon and Pumbaa are an animated meerkat and warthog duo introduced in Disney’s popular 1994 animated film, The Lion King. Pumbaa’s name means “to be foolish, silly, weakminded, careless, negligent” in Swahili. Timon is a Greek historical name meaning “he who respects”. Timon is a self-centered wisecracker who is known for claiming Pumbaa’s ideas as his own. Pumbaa is a ferocious warrior who charges into battle like a battering ram. He has flatulence and he takes great offense if anyone who’s not his friend calls him a pig.
