Sitting Pretty Awful is an episode from The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa.


Timon and Pumbaa enter a family's house to babysit the triplets while the parents are out. When the parents leave, Timon watches TV but Pumbaa interrupts, telling his friend that they don't know anything about babysitting. Timon then sees that the babies are not in their bed and quickly save the three from getting hurt.

The babies start crying and Timon wants to know why. Pumbaa tells the meerkat that they probably want milk. Timon gives them the milk, but Pumbaa says that it's too cold. Timon warms it up, but then realizes that the milk is now too hot. The babies then drink their milk, but start crying again. Pumbaa says that they just need to burp, so he pats two of the triplets on the back and they burp. Timon pats one of them on the back and it burps, but then does something disgusting on the meerkat.

After Pumbaa gives Timon his skin back, the two smell the babies diapers and they stink. After Timon takes care of the diapers (while Pumbaa stands by innocently) and buries them, Pumbaa reads the babies a story. The babies then start crying and Timon tries various ways to make them stop. When the babies won't stop crying, the meerkat gives up, but then he trips on a skateboard and gets hurt, which makes the babies laugh. Timon now makes the babies laugh by getting hurt.

After making the babies laugh, Timon and Pumbaa see the triplets sleeping. The two then go to a couple of payphones and call their parents to tell them that they love them.


  • As mentioned in the summary, Timon and Pumbaa know nothing about babysitting in this episode, although they've had experience in doing so in at least one previous episode and in the movies.
