"You Ghana Join the Club" is the second segment from the seventh episode of The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa.
Timon and Pumbaa relax in a perfect spot beside the river, until the Teds arrive. Timon says that they are trying to nap in peace, but the Teds proceed to work on a construction project around the pals. They erect walls around the warthog and meerkat, and then toss them out saying this is Club Ted. Timon reenters the club to reclaim their spot, but is kicked out again. The Teds tell Timon and Pumbaa that the only way to enjoy Club Ted is to be named Ted. Timon immediately formulates a plan.
The pair claim to both be named Ted to gain access, but the ground squirrels put the duo through their "initiation task". They must travel to Savage Rock to put bells around the neck of the Savage Lion.
At the lion's cave, the two sneak in, hoping to slip the bells onto the sleeping lion's neck. The cat snaps awake and questions the purpose of the bells. He is angry until Timon claims that the bells are from Santa. He is told not to remove them ever and Timon and Pumbaa return to the Teds.
To make it harder, the Teds say that they must return again with the jingly bells. Timon sets an alarm for the savage lion, who is awakened and takes a shower. He removes the bells, making it easy for the pals to swipe them (and Timon takes the lion's watch). The Teds then tell the pals that now they must attire the lion in a dress suit.
They deliver the lion a fake telegram claiming he is invited to Buckingham Palace but must wear a suit. The pair knock again at the cave door to give him a suit. Soon the lion realizes that Timon and Pumbaa, dressed as stylists, are the same animals who came earlier. He angrily beats them up, then Timon and Pumbaa return to the Teds with their bodies covered in bandages. The Teds claim that they need to find proof that they succeeded in their venture and must return to the lion, but Timon interrupts them and states firmly that they won't be going anywhere, and that he and Pumbaa brought the savage lion for the Teds to see, wearing the suit they gave him. The savage lion points at the Teds and booms "So... you're the annoying little Teds who kept making these guys bother me? Hello...", and he mauls the Teds for causing so much trouble. As Timon and Pumbaa watch on, Timon says he wouldn't want to be a member of a club that denies him access.
- The episode title is a pun on "You Gonna Join The Club."
- In "Lemonade Stand Off", there is a lion who bears a striking resemblance to the savage lion in this episode. The only difference is that the lion's mane in "Lemonade Stand Off" is darker than the mane of the lion in this episode.
- When Timon and Pumbaa drag the lion to the mirror, they leave the door open, but when the lion starts to attack the two, the door is completely closed.
