Warthogs aren’t really that cute, but they too need love
If you squealed at the first appearance of Timon and Pumbaa, don’t be ashamed. They’re the best.
They took a young Simba in and nurtured him with love and bugs so he could return to his inherited kingdom (clearly, there were no child services in the animal kingdom, but hey, Simba turned out okay).
Despite all this, similar to Scar, the live action Lion King features a color-deprived Pumbaa. The cute warthog we knew from the animated movie now looked like….
An actual warthog.
These certainly aren’t the 90s anymore.
But again, we’ll allow it.
Pumbaa could be the next icon to bring grey back in fashion.
