Who is Timon anyway?

Timon in The Lion King was an outcast meerkat; a friend of Pumbaa the warthog. Very self-reliant, and quite the fast talker (like a used car salesman). He has a good heart, and he's really loyal. He stands about 6" tall. Need I say more? Yes. His motto is "Hakuna Matata" cute huh? It means "No worries" for the rest of your days. (I'll stop myself from breaking into a musical now)

It's me!
