The StoryTimon, the meerkat, and his warthog pal, Pumbaa, swing past their new friend Simba as they serenade him about their special "problem-free philosophy" of living.The ArtworkThis is a limited edition
sericel depicting characters from Walt Disney Pictures' The Lion King. This sericel edition recreates three distinct poses of Timon and Pumbaa from Sequence 9.1, Scene 34 of Walt Disney Pictures' classic 1994 animated feature.The Walt Disney Studios has created these character images using the fine art screen-printing process of color reproduction known as serigraphy. Disney artists specially created a hand-inked, hand-painted animation cel
master which was used in the production of these sericels. A total of 24 colors are used to recreate the color image, each of which has been exactingly screen-printed, one color at a time, onto the acetate cel.The selected poses recreate "extreme" movements of Timon and Pumbaa as they comically swing past Simba on a vine. In traditional animation, cels to fill in between these extremes would be created by "in-betweeners" to give a fluid sense of motion when the completed sequence of cels if filmed.
