"Target in sight . . . dive!"
"Seeing is believing! Though with a roar, it's more about hearing. . ."
Mzingo's telling the hyenas which one to target next. Smart, in a devious sort of way."
"Looking for something, feather neck?"
Kion's in trouble! Come on!" "But Kion, look. You're over here. In the
Outlands." "No problem. But I don't know which way to go from here. I've never been to
Flat Ridge Rock' ." "
Zebras. They never know where they're going."
"Everyone! There's a ridge up ahead with a flat rock on top of it! It's gotta be Flat Ridge Rock!"
"Hold on! Getting it in sight . . . Really?"
"No, no, no. It's using the scent from the snakeskin to mask its own smell. That way snakes won't detect him. Pretty clever!"
Bunga's on the Lion Guard now. We can't have animals running in terror from his scent!" "You won't get an argument from me!"
"Sorry about changing your smell, Bunga. It clearly has its uses!"
"Oh. Don't get too comfortable. There's bound to be another storm."
"Everyone! You gotta see what's going on at
Hakuna Matata Falls!" "Watch where you're spitting! Tall birds."
"Hapana! Those pink flowers will make them sick!"
"A dead end! Oh, no! Kion!"
"Hmm. Hmm. Hmm. Got to get clean for the queen."
"Your Majesty! Uh, all appears to be in order from
Mekundu Cliffs to Ukuni Woods. There's much excitement about your becoming acting queen. The oryxes aren't fighting, for a change. The eland herd is migrating east along the river as expected. Oh, also on the path along the river, I spotted a new cluster of beehives." "Thank you for the opportunity, my queen. And you, er, my Kion?"
Kiara's at Broken Rock! And she's surrounded by hyenas! Follow me!"
"Oh, sure. Now he admits it!"
"Kion! Behind you! Look out!"
"You heard him! Keep going! Ow! My eye! I'm hit!"
"But doesn't the Guard need me? I'm the keenest of sight."
"We do belong together. All of us. Eye or no eye, my place is with the Guard."
"Just glad to be back on the team."
Janja and his hyenas. They're chasing a little jackal pup though the Outlands." "Outlanders never come to
Kupatana. Right, Kion?" "Hapana! Kion, I think you need to see this for yourself."
"Maybe next time you could get stuck in mud that isn't so sticky."
"Have to admit, Bunga's right. These
baobab blossoms are delicious." "We did it, Kion! The
buffalo are all safe and... sound? Hapana! Egyptian Cobra! Whatever you do, don't let him bite you." "Uh, the flock gets jittery when I don't show up for mealtime."
Fuli's all alone. Hey, Fuli! Fuli!" "We don't eat the
elephants. We we eat the flies that follow the elephants!"
"Oh, that's not mud. Come on!"
"Wait. I'm not so sure they are fine. Look where they're grazing . . . Hapana! They're right on top of a geyser!"
"You should have seen it from up there!"
"Because grubs are dung beetle larvae. Common knowledge, really."
"Hapana . . . Kion, Mzingo and his
vultures! They're circling!"
"Leave Fuli alone !"
"False alarm everyone! No hyenas here!"
"'I saw Janja and his hyenas sneaking into the
Pride Lands yesterday." "Affirmative! The sky's probably the safest place to be."
"Told you the sky was the safest place to be."
"Well, the good news is, I didn't see any hyenas. The bad news is, I also didn't see
Beshte." "And last I checked, none of them ate roots or leaves."
Tamaa's a drongo! That explains everything! Everyone, everyone! Follow me, quick!" "Who do you think you are?"
"Hapana! Janja and his crew! They're about to attack a herd of impalas! And this time, I can see them!"
"Negative. I don't see them. But I do hear something!"
"I better see this little one home. It looks like it's about to . . . rain."
"Well, the storm clouds are gone.
You have nothing to worry about." "Everyone, we have a problem. I did a quick count of the herd, and we're three zebras short."
"You're right. I better help. Kion's in danger."
"Kion, no! Sorry. Didn't mean to startle you. But Fuli, Bunga, and Beshte- oh, no!"
"There's trouble with the zebras!"
"Um, Kion... That's not exactly true... Except for where you are, I only see dirt!"
"Through the plains past
Maji Baridi Falls, down Rocky Ridge, then right through the canyon to Mbali Fields. Pretty simple, really." "We just have to go down this steep slope and through the canyon. You can see the Fields from here. I just hope we get there before the storm hits."
"I only know about eggs."
"Kion, Kion! We've got antelope stuck in a mud pool near
Chekundu Cliffs!" "Looking . . . hapana! A sinkhole! Someone's fallen in! And I think it's the
king!" "Unfortunately, no. It's just a deep hole with no way out. And the walls are kind of crumbly. I'd, uh, appreciate it if you didn't send me down there again."
"Kion, you know those
caves can be pretty tricky. I'm not really used to navigating from below."
Timon? Pumbaa? The entrance to the cave is right there." "I have to admit, for someone your size, you're a surprisingly good hider."
"Hapana! Everyone! Everyone! I saw the
leopard! He's going after some gazelles!" "Uh, Beshte? Maybe you've been hiding all alone a little too long."
"How come I didn't see
"We should go say we're sorry."
"I would, but, you know... they're
bats." "You're the bravest. I'm the keenest of sight. Okay?"
"That certainly makes sense.
Termites eat wood. So too many termites would eat too much wood." "I've heard of
aardwolves, but I've never seen one."
"How about a thank you gift from the aardwolves?"
"You barely made a splash."
"But the Pride Lands doesn't have any leopards."
"Uh-oh. We have to go. There's a
giraffe stuck in a tree." "That's way out in the
"And I'll teach
you to be... Huh. I can't really teach you to be keener of sight." "Sorry, didn't mean to startle you. You might not want to go this way."
"No, I mean, heads up! I just spotted something!"
"Hurry! They're headed for the canyon's edge!"
"Maybe we should let them stay. After all, hyenas are scavengers. By cleaning up after everyone, they'd actually be helping the
Circle of Life in the Pride Lands."
"Slow it down. No need to run. The Lion Guard's here to help."
"We've got a big rain cloud moving in. Other than that, no signs of trouble. Wait. Mzingo and the vultures. They're circling..."
"Go ahead. Make your move,
Mwoga!" "Huh? I don't remember an island being there before... Kiara?"
"Too bad that boulder idea didn't work. Better tell Kion."
"I see... Of course! On my way!"
"I see a lot more than you guys do. And I still haven't seen everything. So, who knows?"
"I have to admit, hearing Bunga describe
the Zimwi has me a little on edge, too." " Yeah. A little too quiet... Ah! I take it back. Quiet's fine! Quiet's fine!"
"Usually I do the watching."
"Of course! So, you huddled together and stuck out your quills to make yourselves look bigger."
"Affirmative. But this time, I'm going to win."
"It was close, wasn't it? Hmm. Maybe if I flatten my head feathers to reduce the drag, and stay closer to Fuli's tail to take advantage of her slipstream..."
"I'm talking about winning!"
"Maybe some other time."
Rafiki was right!" "Huh... Hapana. Looks like Janja and his
clan are heading back into the Pride Lands!" "What? What are you all staring at? Oh, strange. That looks like one of my feathers."
"My head looks like a hippo bottom. That's something to celebrate."
""Egg-head"? Is that a reference to how smart I am?"
"It's a Bunga original. I'll explain on the way. Follow me!"
"It's a very delicate situation!"
"A chameleon! A lizard that can change his colors!"
"Sorry, Kion...The plants are too thick. I can't even see the ground!"
"He must think the gorillas are other forest hogs!"
"Whoohoo! It's melting on my beak!"
"How can you be so calm? His Majesty could be here any moment. My feathers! I need to clean up. Hapana! The whole lair's a mess!"
"Affirmative. I was just about to say that."
"Swala and the other gazelles must be looking for a route up to that grassland."
"Sorry. I thought you were going to say it."
"That was weird. How'd you calm the ostriches?"
"But you don't have to be a bird to have heard of
Hadithi. Creator of the Hadithi Spin?Three mid-air loops and a corkscrew? I think. I've always wanted to ask Hadithi exactly how it goes. And now I can. If I can get up the nerve, that is. He's kind of my idol." "Oh, I do, Hadithi. Sir. In fact, I would have to say I'm your biggest fan?"
"The Lion Guard would be honored to build
the traditional ceremonial nest! Uh... Wouldn't we?" "I think what Hadithi is trying to say is, we all have challenges that require us to rise above ourselves. To become better than we are."
"Don't worry about me, Fuli. Go help the klipspringers!"
"There's another rainstorm on the way. The water here will only get higher!"
"Well, at least they're kind of pretty. That one kind of looks like a
lanes! They're not exactly straight and true. More like a curly elephant's trunk. Actually, they're more like a bunch of elephants' trunks. All twisted up together. And stuck in a Baobab tree's roots." "Oh! He did it! Beshte's new hippo lane is straight and true. All the way across the flood plain!"
"Guess you're pretty good at making them after all, Beshte."
rhinos partner with tickbirds. The tickbirds ride on the rhinos and warn them about dangers that the rhinos can't see! Common knowledge, really." "Well, you know. It's a rhino/bird thing."
"Did you just say I was better at something than
Mwenzi?" "I don't have a rhino. And I'm not ordering you around. It's just not safe here.
Makuu and his crocodiles hang out here. If you don't want to get eaten, you have to move!"
"One of my best friends is a
honey badger. You should hear the noises he makes." "Oh, no. The
jackals have separated Hamu from the rest of the herd!" "Well, I'm a bit concerned about Bunga being away."
"And he's the best climber. What if we need to rescue someone from a tree or some other high place, while he's gone?"
"No antelope. I checked."
"Yes, well, I can't climb either. But I can fly to the rescue."
"Hmm... Yes. It is rather dry."
"Not infant sound. Infrasound! Some animals can talk using sounds lower than most of us can hear. It even lets them talk over long distances!"
"It's when the King brings together key animal leaders to discuss matters of great importance to the Pride Lands."
"Uh, Vuruga Vuruga? Aren't you more of a grass eater?"
"Yes. But it seems like he's been at the center of everything Mtoto has heard today."
"Yes, they're hysterical. Ha, ha."
"It's almost the
dry season, Bunga. A lot of animals have to eat extra now to survive when less stuff is growing." "Trust me. I've seen enough
baboons for one day." "Those baboons must be picking on another poor unsuspecting bird!"
"I can't believe I'm saying this, but... They wouldn't be in the Outlands if it weren't for us. We're the ones who chased them there!"
"I don't want to share it, I want to save it!"
"So. Let's figure out precisely what you need. My bottom's not as large as a mama
hamerkops, so we'll need to maximize warmth. There, the perfect approximation of hamerkop egg-sitting! Hmm. I hope no one sees me like this." "What are you doing? Oh! Of course. You're doing the Hamerkop Family Dance. That way we'll be bonded as a family... Wait! Baby hamerkop, you don't understand. I'm not your family! Really! This is all a case of mistaken identity! My friends have gone to get your
mom! And I hope they find her soon." "That river's moving way too fast. And you can't swim! You can't even fly! Not only that, there's a waterfall down there! I did not sit on your egg till it hatched just to watch you get hurt! Now, we're going back to my nest to wait for your mom and that's final. You understand?"
"Uh... That's okay. You can lean on me if you want. You know, you're kinda cute when you're not getting into trouble. Sleep tight, baby hamerkop."
you found a new water source for your herd?" "The baboons always follow the elephants to new water sources in the dry season. Common knowledge, really."
"Kiara seems okay. But the hyenas have her surrounded, and trapped by steam vents."
" So far, Kion's only lured Janja away from Kiara. The rest of the hyenas are still guarding Kiara at the steam vents! And... They appear to be singing to her."
"Hapana! Run, run! The
volcano's erupting! There's fire and lava everywhere!" "And crocodiles usually spend the whole dry season in deep sleep. But once they're awake, they can't go back to their deep sleep!
"But it's my fault the crocs are awake! What if I'm exiled to the Outlands? Or fed to the crocs!"
"Hapana! Kion! Your Majesty! The crocodiles are everywhere! They've moved in to watering holes all over the Pride Lands!"
"Ugh! Crocodile violence! I don't want to watch this. Huh. That's strange. A crocodile leaving the Mashindano? Wait a tick... What are
you guys up to?"
"Um, about the crocodiles being awake for the dry season? Well, uh, as I'm sure you know, it's... It's all my fault."
"The ground might be thirsty Beshte. But it's so dry it can't absorb all this water. And there's nowhere for it to go."
"See? You didn't have to panic and run."
"No sign of Beshte. And the water's already drying up. Hippos don't do so well in the sun without any water or mud to cover their skin."
"I wasn't even looking for footprints. You got it Kion!"
"Those look like...Hippo prints! Of course! Beshte went into the cave to get out of the sun! Kion! Kion! I know where Beshte went!"
"Kion! The fire's at the trench!"
"Wait. I actually know what he's talking about. Lightning must have started the fire!"
Furaha! I see your troop in those trees!" "We should check the watering hole first. It's not safe to be near water in a lightning storm!"
"That's because it's dry lightning! There isn't any rain!"
Tsetse Flies. This is the most I've ever seen".
The flies didn't leave because Beshte told them too. They left because the zebras showed up."
Zebras don't earn their stripes, they're born with them." "Tsetse flies like the brush. It's to barren for them out here".
"Jasiri's vent, it's gonna blow!"
I think it's more about getting the feeling."
"Elephants are afraid of
bees, but I didn't realize they were this afraid." "Of course. The bees are attracted to the pollen from the flowers."
"Herd of buffalo, right in the elephant's path!"
"The ground's too dry, it won't hold her."
"Bunga! We've got a loose one!"
melons help give the elephants the water they need to make it through the dry season. Common knowledge, really."
I can't tell. There's too much chaos! But whatever it is, it's fast. And big!"
"She's still learning."
"Wait a tick. Hapana! Everyone! Janja,
Cheezi and Chungu are heading back to the melon patch. And Kenge's with them!" "Actually, you can't have getting without giving. Or giving without getting."
"Bunga? You're saving those for the
song, right?" "You put them in my mouth!"
"This is going to be a long night."
"Bunga, we're out of time. The sun's about to come up."
"We've got an impatient
antelope herd back here. Seems they won't go anywhere without Bupu." "
Zazu jumped into Makuu's mouth to save you? That's brave." "Affirmative."
"What have we here? Those look like Zazu's feathers. Everyone! Everyone! Over here."
"Missed me. Try again."
Dhahabu is a golden zebra. They're incredibly rare. I've never seen one before." "Well, I saw
one from the sky once. But they're incredibly rare. It could take us days to even find one." "It looked smaller from the sky."
"I've seen things all right, but maybe they're things you don't want anyone else to see."
"But zebras can only go a few days without water."
He's right, Kion. I forgot." "Hapana! The stampede is causing a rock slide!"
"Beshte! Beshte! The
galagos are in trouble!" "Hapana! Everyone! Everyone! Kiburi and
his crocs, they're back in the Pride Lands."
"Everyone! Everyone! Kiburi's float is attacking Makuu's watering hole."
"Oh, no. I don't think it was...The hyenas and jackals are heading across the Outlands together!"
"Indeed. Hyenas have even been known to hunt jackals."
"Hyenas. But who are they going after? Oh, no! Kion! The hyenas! They're moving in on Rafiki!"
"Actually, it's about to get worse."
"Feels good, doesn't it?"
