Pumbaa Fun Facts:
Pumbaa in General -
Like most warthogs, Pumbaa is broad and portly with a large head, a round middle, and skinny legs. His tusks are white, and his hooves are black, with his nose colored a pale pink. His main shade is red, though his stomach is darker, colored a deep brown. His mane and tail tip are both black in color, while his eyes are small and dark.
Due to his friendly, loyal, and protective personality, Pumbaa is generally regarded as a very likable character. However, he displays childlike naivety, which is sometimes confused for stupidity. He does, in fact, come up with some intelligent plans and insightful ideas, which Timon rapidly claims as his own.
Pumbaa is also kind and caring, as shown when he, unlike Timon, takes pity on Simba and is quick to offer his assistance to the young cub. In the sequel, he jumps into a rather shallow body of water to save a supposedly drowning Kiara and offers assistance to a badly injured Simba, carrying him all the way back to Pride Rock after an unexpected ambush by the Outsiders. In addition, Pumbaa generally appears to be polite. Notwithstanding, he expects respect from his enemies, which is indicated when he attacks Banzai after he is addressed as a "pig."
