[[Timon]] draws [[Pumbaa|Pumbaa's]] attention to [[Ned]] the [[Elephant]], a prideful pachyderm, and points out all the benefits an elephant enjoys over every other animal, including a trunk for showers, birds that ride on his back, and the utility of long tusks. Pumbaa begins contemplating becoming an elephant and the next morning, he excitedly asks Timon for help in transforming himself into an elephant. Because Pumbaa's reason to change is to be more popular, Timon jumps on the opportunity.

[[File:UgandabeanElephant screencap.png|thumb|250px|Pumbaa saying he doesn't want to be an elephant]]
Upon seeing the respect [[elephants]] earn from other animals, [[Timon]] attempts to physically transform [[Pumbaa]] into one.
+
The first step is for Pumbaa to become bigger and fatter. Timon soon begins shoveling worms into Pumbaa's mouth. The [[warthog]] is happy at first, but as he becomes full, he becomes miserable and thinks perhaps he should be himself.
   
==Plot==
+
The next step, Timon says, is to condition his pal's mind, since elephants never forget. Soon, Timon becomes frustrated by Pumbaa's slow wit and poor memory. Pumbaa points out that the reason Timon is not popular, is because he is grumpy.
"Uganda Be an Elephant" begins by introducing Timon, a [[meerkat]], and Pumbaa, a [[warthog]]. The episode starts with Timon and Pumbaa looking at [[Ned the Elephant]] and talking about how popular he is. Timon suggests that Pumbaa should an elephant and be as popular as Ned, but Pumbaa says that he's happy being a warthog. The next day, Pumbaa wakes Timon up and tells him that he decided to become an elephant and be as popular as Ned.
 
   
Timon starts telling Pumbaa about the size of an elephant. The meerkat tells the warthog that he's too small to be an elephant, so he decides to feed him a lot of bugs so that the warthog can be big and fat like an elephant. After that, Timon teaches Pumbaa about the memories of an elephant. He makes Pumbaa practice not forgetting. Later, Timon makes Pumbaa put his head between two trees so that the meerkat can put a hook in Pumbaa's nostrils and push a big rock off the cliff so that Pumbaa's nose becomes a trunk. Pumbaa seems to dislike his elephant form, but Timon tells him that everything will be alright.

The final enhancement Timon attempts to make is to stretch Pumbaa's snout out to be an elephant trunk. He wedges Pumbaa's head between two palm trees and hooks a rope to his nose. He rolls a boulder over the edge which pulls the rope on Pumbaa's nose and stretches it to a disproportionate length. Timon congratulates his pal on his successful transformation into an elephant and convinces him to gloat in Ned's face. Pumbaa, however, does not want to show his elephant form to the pachyderm as he has a feeling that he will get laughed at and made fun of. Timon tells his pal that he will be right there with him and that he'll help him.
   
Timon shows Ned and his hippo friends Pumbaa as an elephant, which he calls "Pumbaa-phant." Ned doesn't seem to like it and says that "it is the most ridiculous thing he's ever seen in his entire life." The elephant and the hippos then laugh at Pumbaa and fall off a cliff. Ned holds on to a branch with his trunk while one of the hippos bites Ned's tail, and the other hippo bites the other hippo's tail. Pumbaa rushes to save the three. After Pumbaa saves them, Ned suggests that Pumbaa becomes an honorary elephant, but Pumbaa would rather be his own warthog self.

Eventually he grabs onto Pumbaa's nose and is towed up. Ned gets a change of heart and offers Pumbaa an honorary spot in his clique. However, Pumbaa refuses, saying that he is proud to be exactly who he is: a warthog.

Plot

Timon draws Pumbaa's attention to Ned the Elephant, a prideful pachyderm, and points out all the benefits an elephant enjoys over every other animal, including a trunk for showers, birds that ride on his back, and the utility of long tusks. Pumbaa begins contemplating becoming an elephant and the next morning, he excitedly asks Timon for help in transforming himself into an elephant. Because Pumbaa's reason to change is to be more popular, Timon jumps on the opportunity.

The first step is for Pumbaa to become bigger and fatter. Timon soon begins shoveling worms into Pumbaa's mouth. The warthog is happy at first, but as he becomes full, he becomes miserable and thinks perhaps he should be himself.

The next step, Timon says, is to condition his pal's mind, since elephants never forget. Soon, Timon becomes frustrated by Pumbaa's slow wit and poor memory. Pumbaa points out that the reason Timon is not popular, is because he is grumpy.
