In the soundtracks
"Bowling for Buzzards" was initially released on the complete film score as a track titled "As Good As Dead (Part 2)". However, the album was retracted shortly after released. On June 24, 2014, the track was remixed and released under the title "Bowling for Buzzards" on The Legacy Collection: The Lion King.
In the film
This score was meant to be played directly after Timon and Pumbaa rescue Simba from the thieving vultures. It is the main theme for the dynamic duo. However, it went unused in the film and was instead replaced by the introduction from "We Are All Connected".
In other media
Although the theme is cut from the stage musical in the same sequence as its film counterpart, elements of the score can still be heard throughout the musical, such as during the battle of Pride Rock, when Timon and Pumbaa fight the hyenas and free Zazu.
