Mall I Want for Christmas is a comic inspired by The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa. It was published in December of 1995 as part of Disney Comic Hits!


Timon and Pumbaa arrive at a shopping mall at Christmas time, planning on eating bugs there. Timon uses a telescope to take a look at the bug meals they have at a store called "Bug City," but while he does so, he sees that Speedy the Snail is one of the meals. So he and Pumbaa decide to rescue their friend instead.

While Shopkeeper Quint, the store owner, helps out a woman choose a meal, Timon and Pumbaa free Speedy from his cage. Quint sees this and chase the three friends. Timon suggests that they split up to confuse Quint and Pumbaa agrees. Pumbaa runs into Santa Clause's throne and finds the Santa costume. He decides to disguise himself to avoid getting caught by Quint.

Meanwhile, Timon realizes that Speedy can't run fast since he's a snail. Timon grabs his friend and tries to come up with an idea for a distraction. He finds a shoe store and writes down that all the shoes are 100% off, leading to the shoppers to stampede and run over Quint. With Quint defeated, Timon and Speedy can now go safely back to the jungle and they go find Pumbaa. Pumbaa, however, cannot leave yet because he's busy playing Santa to a line of children, with the real Santa watching in shock.
