Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has a surprising amount of potty humor--everything from Pumbaa's gas problem to jokes about belching, nose-picking and toilet-training. Some kids may get upset that Timon leaves his family and heads off alone in search of happiness and that Pumbaa does not have any family at all. The hyenas may frighten some children--they are constantly trying to kill the meerkats. Also, at one point Timon's mom says of the hyenas "When they die, they become the grass." This comment may need to be explained.
The hyenas attack the meerkats. Some comic violence (the friends fall over a waterfall, almost fall off cliffs, etc.) The hyenas may frighten some children. The meerkats are constantly in danger from predators.
The naughtiest comment is "'s whip some grass!"
The other meerkats make fun of Timon. Some potty humor--jokes about passing gas, burping, nose-picking.
