Dang, I always forget what the "wildebeest" is called. In German it's simply "Gnu".

They are also called gnus sometimes in English. Either is considered acceptable. Gnu is popular in crossword puzzles.

Sarafina? you mean Sarabi?

Apr 25, 2019
I'm sure you care 2 1/2 years later, but Sarafina is the name of Nala's mother. It's never brought up in the movie but it is in the novel series that may or may not be canon.

No one knows what a mandrill is. Change it to baboon!

73% of people not only know what a Mandrill is...but they also know his name is Rafiki. I think that's good enough.

I got the answer right without knowing what a mandrill was because I knew that Rafiki would be an answer somewhere.

Also, he's NOT a baboon. He's a mandrill. They're completely different species. They're not even in the same genus.

"Wise" really should be enough to get you the answer. I didn't know what a mandrill is, but I got it based on "wise," and now I do know what a mandrill is, so...double bonus.

I'd have to back up that Pumbaa's line is: Timon: "You're the king, and you never told us?" Pumbaa:"Your Majesty! I gravel at your feet" and Timon says "It's not gravel, its grovel! And don't! He's not the king! Are ya Simba?" "No, I'm not the king!" Nala: "Simba!" Simba:" Maybe I was gonna be but... that was a long time ago!" just to give you some context. Also I noticed someone already pointed this out, but I noticed it too while taking the quiz, the Circle of Life is ALSO the last song played. Literally, going out, it says "Cir-cle- of! Ahhhhh" *abrupt cut off*, fade into Elton John's Can You Feel The Love Tonight for the credits. Similarly, the last song played in the credits, after Elton John, is also the circle of life. They've gone full circle. Hope that cleared things up.

I'm not sure if this counts, but the Timon and Pumbaa also sing the Hula song after Can you feel the love tonight.

Judges (at least in the US) don't actually use gavels. I'm sure they must have at some point because the notion is so pervasive, but they definitely don't use them now.

The gravel/grovel joke (which I didn't remember from the movie) just reminds me of the Whomp King, a concrete slab with a really great personality.

Tim Rice should be an answer along with Elton John. They cowrote those songs.
+1
level 62
Sep 3, 2017
Agreed, fairly sure Tim Rice wrote all the lyrics and Elton wrote the music.
+1
level 76
Sep 4, 2017
I think the original clue was something about who composed the soundtrack. People rightly complained that the answer to this clue ought to be Hans Zimmer. So the present clue is at least an improvement on that. Maybe Rice should be accepted as a type-in.

I really do intend to watch this movie sometime. It came out between the time my own kids were young and before the grandkids came along, so it was pretty much a Disney drought period in my life although I heard the songs and saw the trailers which were everywhere.

You missed out on arguably the best period in Disney animation history since the 1940s. 1989-1997 or so. The Little Mermaid, Beauty & The Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Mulan, The Hunchback of Notre Dame... all excellent. The Lion King is perhaps the best of the bunch.
+1
level 46

Agreed, between 1989 and 2002 actually has a name--the Disney Renaissance (started with The Little Mermaid and ended with Lilo and Stitch). Show your grandkids every single one of the Disney movies that came out during that time, and they won't be disappointed. Beautiful animation, great original songs and scores, just amazing really. After the Renaissance ended, so did 2-D animation for the most part, so it's almost required viewing just for the historical context of it.

Correction: it was 1989-1999. Tarzan was the last Disney Renaissance movie. Although Lilo and Stitch was still adorable.

I'd rope in Fantasia 2000 so that would make it 1989-2000. After that things started going downhill.
