Wow. I just realized how much i miss The Lion King... I just caught the first one, the 1 1/2 one and The Lion King 2 on YouTube. OK! I know, i ought to be shot for spending my time doing that.

But oh... my gosh. It's so wonderful watching it again. Apart from the kiddy Disney songs (actually, the lyrics are quite funny too), the jokes are still worthy of genuine laughter and the animators and artists REALLY did such a good job depicting the emotions of the characters. Every twitch, every slight movement on the faces and bodies of the characters are so precise and intentional and accurate. Such a work of art in a movie made in the 1990s (but i'm thinking... i believe that the conception of ideas and artwork would've begun somewhere in the 1980s?).

I wanna buy the whole DVD set if possible! It's like treasure to me. :-)

HAHAHA. Hey, then you might like to continue the story with Lion King 1 and a 1/2 and Lion King 2. To appreciate 1 1/2, you must watch 1 simultaneously, which u can do on Youtube. Oh man. It's quite funny. Timon and Pumba are hilarious and i forgot how crazy Rafiki was. :-D

"Asantehsana squash banana, noomenoomenoome..." *ROFL*
(wonder if you remember this line by Rafiki)

I've watched a bit of 1 1/2. I think it's just me, cos I find it hard to laugh at American humour.
