In a parallel story to Simba and Kyle's story in The Lion King, Team Star Fox meets Timon and Pumbaa. Timon is on a mission to find his 'dream home' and he hires Pumbaa and Star Fox to help him. Along the way, their journey coincides with the events of The Lion King, such as Simba's presentation ceremony to the Pride Lands, and the wildebeest stampede. Also, Timon and Pumbaa's relationship gets stronger and Fox tries to cope with the loss of his father. Eventually, they meet up with Kyle and the FT Squad and they help them with their mission to help Simba claim his throne at Pride Rock.
