A Genuine Friendship Service is a German comic inspired by The Lion King. It was published by Ehapa Verlag on February 10, 2004, as part of the Timon's Diary series.
Timon and Pumbaa spot a tree stump rich with grubs, but are unable to reach it due to a thorn thicket. Timon encourages Pumbaa to not focus on his hunger, and Pumbaa begrudgingly agrees. For a moment, the two sit side by side on a tree branch, humming. However, Pumbaa grows impatient with hunger and jumps from the branch, accidentally catapulting Timon across the thicket to the stump. Timon lands, disoriented by the fall, but Pumbaa does not realize that it had been an accident. He calls across the thorns to Timon, thanking him for his generosity and promising to fetch the grubs next time.
