We're talking, of course, about Timon's rendition of "Be Our Guest"
that appears when Pumbaa is served up as live bait in the third act of the 2019 remake. How a meerkat in the middle of Africa even knows the lyrics to Lumier's anthem from Beauty and the Beast
is about as relevant as how a lion is able to dance and sing alongside a warthog instead if eating him. Instead, I wanted to know what inspired such a meta reference. And as it turns out, the man behind the meerkat, Billy Eichner
, was only about fifty percent sure the joke would even work.
