"The Chicken King"

Boombah Lion King

"The Lion Friend"

The Lion King is a 1994 Academy Award winning animated film from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Taking much of its story from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, the film is one of the highest grossing animated films of all time. It has spun off a Broadway adaptation in 1997 and a CGI remake in 2019.


  • A 1995 episode of Sesame Street features "The Chicken King," directed by Walt Dizzy. In the film, a lion who wants to be king tries and fails to turn a corn cob into an egg, and is bested by Elmo (in a chicken outfit) who eats the corn and in turn lays an egg.
  • Timed with the release of the 2019 remake of The Lion King, the Twitter account for Galli Galli Sim Sim posted a parody of the film's poster featuring Boombah in the title lion role called "The Lion Friend". [1]
