Corrected entry: Near the end, When Zazu is in the cage of bones and Timon runs in with him because two of the hyenas are chasing him, Pumbaa follows them. Banzai is in front, and Shenzi is by the cage. Banzai calls Pumbaa a pig, and Pumbaa charges. We get a view of the two hyenas, and they have switched places.
Corrected entry: When Rafiki grabbed some of the dust that Simba had blown, Rafiki grabs a fruit thing form the tree, he breaks it in half and starts to eat the one half. Yet, when he puts his hand down to hold the turtle shell, and he gets up to go over to put the mane on Simba's picture, the fruit is gone and the turtle shell as well. (00:53:00)
Corrected entry: When everyone thinks Simba is dead, Rafiki (the monkey) is sitting on a branch beside the drawing of Simba. Later, when he finds out Simba is alive, the drawing is near a platform, not a branch.
Corrected entry: In the beginning scene when Scar and Zazu are talking, Scar's back paws change from one scene to another. He is laying down when this happens. They have black claws at first then they change and are gone when it shows him again.
Audio problem: (May only apply to the original VHS release.) When Scar has Zazu locked up in a cage, Zazu mentions Mufasa's name and Scar yells at him, "What did you say?" Right before Scar's actual line, whilst Zazu is talking, you hear Scar's "What did you say?" line very faintly in the background, even though Zazu has not even mentioned Mufasa yet.
Pumbaa: Hey, Timon, ever wonder what those sparkly dots are up there?
Timon: Pumbaa, I don't wonder; I know.
Pumbaa: Oh. What are they?
Timon: They're fireflies. Fireflies that, uh... Got stuck up on that big bluish-black thing.
Pumbaa: Oh, gee. I always thought they were balls of gas burning billions of miles away.
Timon: Pumbaa, with you, everything's gas.
Trivia: Disney wanted people to despise Scar, the film's villain, so, during Scar's big song 'Be prepared', they made references to Adolf Hitler. When Scar's army begins to march, they are goose-stepping like Nazi soldiers and have their snouts raised like a Nazi salute (their snouts appear longer here than in any other part of the movie, and pointed to their right). Scar is on a large ledge, which resembles a balcony, much like that used by Hitler - on the side, the rock has a pattern resembling a giant Swastika. And finally, on the ground where the army marches, lines appear. These lines were on the streets of Germany, where the Nazis paraded.
