Pumbaa, an African warthog, is one of the tritagonists of Disney's 1994 animated feature film, The Lion King. He also appears in the film's 1998 direct-to-video sequel, The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. In 2004, Pumbaa finally got a starring role in the film's second direct-to-video sequel, The Lion King 1½, alongside long-time best friend, Timon. He is known to be friendly, but has a lot of gas and farts a lot.

From 1995 to 1999, Timon co-starred with Timon on his very own animated television series entitled Timon and Pumbaa.

In all film and television appearances, Pumbaa is voiced by American actor, Ernie Sabella. In the 2019 remake, he is voiced by Seth Rogen.
