Timon's Mother, aka Ma in many cases, is a character from Timon and Pumbaa.
Timon's Mother
She is Timon's caring mother. Ma reappeared in The Lion King 1 1/2, now as a much younger and kinder adult meerkat.


Ma lives in a meerkat colony with Timon and Uncle Max. Her husband is never mentioned, only appearing in deleted scenes. Ma understands Timon's struggles to find his place in the colony, and tries to help him in whatever manner she can. Although the rest of the burrow hates Timon, she stands by his side in most of his decisions. Not much more is known about her since her final appearance. 



Film Appearances

The Lion King 1 1/2

In the colony, Ma tries to encourage Timon in his jobs first as a digger and as a sentry. But when Timon fails as a sentry, he leaves the colony. Ma goes on a journey to find him, but is initially unsuccessful. She and Timon's Uncle Max meet Timon at Pride Rock after many years. At Timon's request, she and the other meerkats dig a tunnel to trap the hyenas, in order to help Simba. At the end of the film, Ma accompanies the rest of the colony to the jungle paradise that Timon and Pumbaa had discovered. She is also nicer and much lighter, though still slightly plump, than the one in the TV series. She also has red hair and is younger.
