"Saskatchewan Catch"

Our own unspoiled tropical island paradise! I'm tainted by the outside world!
Timon[src]

"Boara Boara" is the first segment of the first episode of Season 1 of The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa, as well as the first episode of the overall series. It aired on September 8, 1995, along with "Saskatchewan Catch".

Plot

Timon and Pumbaa are intending to go skiing, but they end up in a tropical isle instead. They decide to stay at the beach instead, until three natives kidnap Pumbaa. At first, they try to cook Pumbaa, but their leader appears and sees Pumbaa. He smacks his henchmen on their heads with his staff, because he thinks Pumbaa is their god-king.

The natives make Timon be Pumbaa's servant

Timon goes through difficult situations to rescue Pumbaa, and when he finds him, he is surprised that the natives made Pumbaa their king. Timon gets angry at his friend for having him worried sick, and he throws Pumbaa's crown away, breaking it, and tries to leave, but is stopped by the natives.

Timon is put in a basket with flowers, making the meerkat think that he's the new god-king, but he is actually going to be thrown into a volcano as a sacrifice for attempting to "kidnap" Pumbaa. He begs not to be thrown into the volcano and says he'll do anything in return, so the Natives turn him into a servant of Pumbaa.

"Samba!"

After a while, the Natives' sacred fire goes out and their leader asks Pumbaa to restore it. Using his mind, Pumbaa reignites the flame, but right after it, he accidentally makes it rain. This causes the Natives consider him an impostor and go after him and Timon. They both run away by playing "samba" to distract the natives. When the natives keep dancing, their leader hits each of them on the head with his staff.

The three natives then take off their costumes, revealing themselves to be university students. Fed up with being hit on the head repeatedly by their leader, they go back to the college having decided that "Be a Native Weekends" aren't any fun, leaving their leader begging them to come back so they don't lose their deposits, hinting that he is also a college student. After escaping the natives, Timon and Pumbaa go back to the beach but find civilization.
