MUHANGUS: Lion Guard! Lion Guard!
ONO: This way, everyone!
MUHANGUS: You're here! Thank goodness!
KION: We came as soon as we could.
BESHTE: What's the kerbubble?
MUHANGUS: Our den! It's full of... Hyenas!
BUNGA: Hyenas again?
FULI: We've had to chase them out of the Pride Lands every night this week!
KION: I know one thing that'll scare them away from the aardvarks' den for good. Lion Guard, follow me!
MUHANGUS: Aaaah! There they are!
KION: I see 'em... Everyone, stay behind me. Hey! I told you before, and I meant it. Get. Out. Of. The Pride Lands! (ROARS)
AARDWOLVES: (ALL YIPPING)
KION: And stay out.
BUNGA: Oh, yeah! Things have been pretty quiet since we chased those hyenas off the other night, huh?
BESHTE: Well, Kion did most of the work.
BUNGA: (CHEWING LOUDLY) Yeah, but we had his back! Mmm!
FULI: Ugh. Bunga!
FULI: Please tell me you're done eating.
BUNGA: Not even close! (CHEWING LOUDLY) Besides, haven't you noticed? There are termites everywhere!
BESHTE: Uh, yeah.
KION: No kidding. Here, Bunga. All yours.
BUNGA: Mmm, termites on a stick! Thanks, Kion! (SLURPS) Mmm!
ONO: Everyone! Everyone!
KION: What is it, Ono?
ONO: We've got an emergency at Mekundu Cliffs! A big hollow tree is falling apart!
KION: A tree falling apart? That's not really an emergency.
ONO: Yes, it is! It's the tree where the Mekundu Bats live! They're asleep inside!
FULI: Why didn't you wake them up?
ONO: I would, but, you know... (SHUDDERS) ...they're bats.
BUNGA: You're afraid of bats?
ONO: You're the bravest. I'm the keenest of sight. Okay?
KION: You were right to get us, Ono. Come on, everybody. To the Pride Lands' end...
ALL: ...Lion Guard defend!
BUNGA: One second! (MUFFLED) ...Lion Guard defend!
KION: What's the fastest way, Ono?
ONO: Across that fallen tree and over the ravine!
KION: Got it! Heyvi kabisa!
FULI: I don't get it. That tree's held all of us before. Even Beshte. What happened?
BUNGA: Maybe it just got old.
KION: Whatever it was, we can talk about it later. We still have to help the Mekundu bats! Come on!
ONO: There it is! The hollow tree!
KION: Whoa! The whole thing's coming down! We gotta wake up the bats!
ALL: Wake up! Get up! Wake up, guys! Wake up, bats!
BUNGA: Hey, bats!
ONO: Are they coming out?
KION: I don't hear anything.
BUNGA: (GASPS IN DELIGHT) I'm going in! Zuka Zama! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
ONO: Oh, no! (SCREAMS) Are they gone?
BESHTE: They're gone.
KION: Uh-oh! Look out!
BESHTE: Oh, no!
BUNGA: (GASPS) Somebody call me? (CHEWING LOUDLY)
FULI: I am not okay with all the termites around here.
KION: You're right. There's a lot of them.
BESHTE: I've never seen so many termites. They ate through the whole tree.
KION: Maybe they ate through the tree bridge, too. I bet that's why it collapsed!
ONO: That certainly makes sense. Termites eat wood. So too many termites would eat too much wood.
BESHTE: But we've always had termites in the Pride Lands. Why are there too many now?
BUNGA: Hey! Just because there are a lot of termites, it doesn't mean there's too many.
BUNGA: Okay. There may be a few too many.
KION: We have to tell my dad.
SIMBA: Let me guess. You're here to tell me that there are too many termites in the Pride Lands?
KION: Um, yeah. The thing is, we don't know why there are so many termites.
SIMBA: Hmm. Maybe we should ask the aardwolves.
SIMBA: That's right. They're the Pride Lands' termite experts.
ONO: I've heard of aardwolves, but I've never seen one.
SIMBA: I'm not surprised. They're very shy. They only come out at night, and pretty much keep to themselves. But they love to eat termites. Even more than you do!
BUNGA: Not possible!
FULI: So the aardwolves keep the Pride Lands' termites under control?
SIMBA: That's right. At least, until now.
BESHTE: I sure hope nothing happened to them.
KION: Yeah. We better talk to the aardwolves and make sure they're okay. Where do they live?
SIMBA: Well, they tend to roam around. But their favorite places to sleep are empty aardvark dens.
FULI: Empty aardvark dens?
BUNGA: Ha! That's funny. We just chased hyenas out of an empty aardvark den a couple days ago!
KION: Uh, Dad? What exactly do aardwolves look like?
SIMBA: Well, they actually look a lot like hyenas.
KION: I was afraid you'd say that. Dad, I... I think I kicked the aardwolves out of the Pride Lands. It was a mistake. I thought they were hyenas.
FULI: We all did.
BUNGA: I still do!
KION: Thanks, guys. But I'm the one who used the Roar on them.
SIMBA: You Roared at the aardwolves? Well, that explain the termites.
KION: I'm sorry, Dad.
SIMBA: Kion, you've made a mistake. We all do. But it's what you do to correct your mistakes that really counts.
KION: Thanks, Dad. We're gonna make things right. I promise! Lion Guard, we're gonna find those aardwolves, and bring them back to the Pride Lands!
FULI: Your Roar sure knocked those aardwolves a long way into the Outlands.
KION: (SIGHS) Don't rub it in. I'm just glad we got their scent from the aardvark dens so we can track them.
BUNGA: I'm glad I had a termite snack before we left. This place has none.
BESHTE: Those poor aardwolves must be gettin' awful hungry.
ONO: As soon as we get them back home, they'll have plenty of termites to eat!
FULI & KION: (SNIFFING)
FULI: (GASPS) Do you smell that?
KION: (SNIFFS) It's the aardwolves' scent. And it's getting stronger. (SNIFFS)
OGOPA: (GASPS) I just saw The Lion Guard! They followed us into the Outlands!
HAYA: (STUTTERS) What are they doing out here? You think they're still after us?
MJOMBA: The Lion Guard? Why would they be after us? They already chased us out of the Pride Lands. Into the termite-forsaken Outlands.
OGOPA: Yes. (CHUCKLES) Yes! Of course! The Lion Guard can't be looking for us. (SIGHS) They're just passing by!
FULI: So when we find the aardwolves, what's the plan?
BUNGA: Sneak up on 'em?
BESHTE: Surround them?
HAYA: Still think they're just passing by?
OGOPA: But why? Why?
MJOMBA: Oh, look! Is that a bug?
BUNGA: Pfft! All this tracking's taking too long. I'm goin' up and over. Zuka Zama!
OGOPA: It's not like you'd sneak up on somebody and surround them just to say hello (EXCLAIMS) Am I right?
BUNGA: (GRUNTS) Oh, hello!
AARDWOLVES: (ALL SCREAMING)
BUNGA: I found 'em! They're goin' that way!
BESHTE: But why are they running away?
KION: I don't know, Beshte. All I know is that we've gotta convince 'em to come back to the Pride Lands! Now come on! Aardwolves!
ALL: Aardwolves! Aardwolves!
MJOMBA: (GASPS) It really is the Lion Guard! Why didn't somebody say something?
OGOPA: They're coming after us!
HAYA: Run faster!
KION: Wow. They're pretty fast.
FULI: Oh, you want fast? Huwezi! Listen up! We're the Lion Guard! We're only here to... Whoa.
KION: You okay?
FULI: They didn't stop.
BUNGA: Yeah, we noticed. That was weird.
KION: Wait. They're afraid of us.
ONO: Afraid of us?
KION: Well, I did use the Roar on them. Maybe they think we're out to get them.
BUNGA: You mean they think we're the bad guys?
BESHTE: But we're the Lion Guard. We can't be the bad guys.
FULI: And you didn't mean to Roar at them. It was an honest mistake.
KION: Yeah, but they don't know that. So we've gotta convince them we're the good guys. Of course, we've gotta find them again first.
ONO: Look! I see one of them right there! Hapana! Guys! He's running right towards a cliff!
BUNGA: Leave this one to me! Zuka Zama!
MJOMBA: (GROANS) Get off me. Get off of me! What do you think you're doing?
BUNGA: Uhh, maybe a little something like saving your life!
MJOMBA: What? Oh. Uh, in that case, thanks. (SIGHS) So now what? You've already kicked me and the others out of the Pride Lands! Where do you want us to go now?
KION: We want you to come back to the Pride Lands!
MJOMBA: You want us to go back? Wouldn't it have been easier just not to kick us out in the first place?
BUNGA: He's got a point there.
BUNGA: Just sayin'...
KION: Look, I'm really sorry. That was a mistake. I Roared at you because we thought you were hyenas.
MJOMBA: Hyenas? Hyenas? Do I look like a hyena to you?
BUNGA: Pretty much.
FULI: You aardwolves really don't get out much, do you?
KION: We still need to find the rest of your pack. So we can take you all home.
MJOMBA: I don't know... What's in it for me?
ONO: Well, you get to go home.
BUNGA: A home that's now totally overrun with termites, by the way.
MJOMBA: Termites? (SLURPING) (CHUCKLING) Now you're talking! Why didn't you say so in the first place? Let's go!
KION: Uh, hey! Wait for us!
HAYA: Here. Behind these rocks!
OGOPA: Ooh, look! Let's hide in there! This is perfect! Yes! Totally perfect! I think.
HAYA: Yeah, they'll never find us here. I hope.
OGOPA: Poor, brave Mjomba! It's because of him we're safe. Maybe.
HAYA: I'll take a peek, just to be sure. Yup. All clear.
REIREI: (SNIFFING) Hmm. Ooh. Something smells delicious! (GASPS) Aardwolves! Goigoi! You hear what I said?
GOIGOI: Love you, too, baby.
GOIGOI: What? Was I snorin'?
REIREI: Oh, never mind. Keep sleeping if you want. Just more scrumptious aardwolf for me and the kids.
GOIGOI: You had me at aardwolf.
REIREI: Thought so. Smells like a whole pack of 'em just moved in next door.
GOIGOI: When did the hyraxes move out?
REIREI: They didn't.
GOIGOI: Oh, yeah. (CHUCKLES) They were delicious.
REIREI: Now that you're up, time we said hello to our new neighbors.
GOIGOI: (SLURPING) Whatever you say, dear.
HAYA: Coming in here was a great idea! It's roomy, nice and dank, wall to wall dirt...
OGOPA: Oh. Too bad there's nothing here to eat.
RAIRAI: Oh, I wouldn't say that!
REIREI: We're the folks from next door!
GOIGOI: Howdy, neighbors!
HAYA: (SIGHS) You scared us for a second there!
OGOPA: lWe thought you were the Lion Guard.
GOIGOI: Lion Guard? Where? Twern't me! Rairai made me do it!
HAYA: Oh! You don't like 'em either? Well, don't worry. They'll never find us. We totally gave them the slip! I think.
REIREI: I see. Well, now, you just set your minds at ease. We're the furthest thing from the Lion Guard. Believe you me. And...Why exactly were you running away from the Lion Guard?
OGOPA: Because they're mean! And they're scary!
REIREI: Say it, sister!
HAYA: But mainly because Kion's Roar sent us flying out of the Pride Lands!
OGOPA: And then they came after us here! You won't tell them where we are, will you?
REIREI: Don't you worry about that. I promise, the Lion Guard won't find hide nor hair of you. Well, maybe a little hide.
GOIGOI: And maybe a little hair.
REIREI: All we're trying to say is, as your new neighbors, we're going to be such good friends! And you know what friends do...
GOIGOI: Have each other for dinner! Ow!
REIREI: He means, have each other over for dinner.

OGOPA: Wow! That was fun! We are so lucky we picked this cave to hide in!
REIREI: Oh, no, honey. We're the lucky ones.
ONO: Yep. They're hiding in that cave all right.
KION: Okay. This time, we need a good plan.
BUNGA: On it. I'll go in alone. Oof!
BESHTEL Sorry, Little B. Nothin' personal.
KION: Mjomba, will you go into that cave? Tell the other aardwolves we're not a threat?
MJOMBA: Sure. I can do that.
KION: Just pop your head out when you know they won't run. Then we can all go back to the Pride Lands.
MJOMBA: Then I can eat! Unlimited termite feast, here I come!
BUNGA: Almost unlimited! Some of those termites are mine!
BUNGA: Never too early to call dibs.
MJOMBA: Hello! Any aardwolves at home?
GOIGOI: Private party!
REIREI: Not at all, not at all, the more the merrier!
HAYA: Mjomba! You escaped! How smart! How brave! It is really you, right?
MJOMBA: Yeah, it's me! And I've got good news, the Lion Guard are the good guys. They saved me!
OGOPA: Good guys? No way! They kicked us out of the Pride Lands! (GASPS) Is this another trick? Are they hiding behind you?
MJOMBA: No! And they didn't mean to kick us out! They thought we were hyenas!
HAYA: Hyenas? That's ridiculous! Okay, now I see it.
MJOMBA: Anyway, they want to take us back to the Pride Lands. Since we left, it's crawling with termites!
OGOPA: Mmm. Termites? Crawling with 'em?
MJOMBA: Yeah, and we can eat 'em all! They need us to!
HAYA: You hear that? We can go home and eat termites!
MJOMBA: So, let's go!
REIREI: Hold on a second! I thought we were going to have dinner here.
MJOMBA: Well, I dunno. You got any termites?
REIREI: Trust me, none of you are leaving this cave hungry. In fact, none of you are leaving at all! Goigoi! Push!
MJOMBA'S PACK: (GASPING)
KION: Something's not right. Why'd they do that?
FULI: Maybe they're still scared of us?
BESHTE: You think they didn't believe Mjomba?
KION: I promised we'd make things right. Come on! Ono. Can you see through the crack?
ONO: I can try. (GASPS) Hapana! Jackals!
GOIGOI: Should we wait for the kids?
REIREI: We'll bring 'em the leftovers.
REIREI & GOIGOI: (GROWLING)
BESHTE: Twende Kiboko!
KION: Get away from the aardwolf, Reirei!
FULI: Aardwolves! Follow me!
ONO: All clear, Kion!
REIREI: Kion! So nice of you to drop by! Gotta admit, I wish you'd of come a little later.
KION: I'll bet you do, Rairai. Anybody got Goigoi?
BUNGA: He's not going anywhere.
KION: All right, Rairai. Time for you to go home!
REIREI: You betcha! See ya next visit!
KION: Okay, Bunga!
BUNGA: And stay in there!
RAIRAI: Don't you worry about little ol' us! We love it in here! Don't we, Goigoi? Goigoi?
OGOPA: She seemed like such a good hostess. Until she tried to eat us.
HAYA: Yeah, that sorta spoiled the party.
MJOMBA: I could really use a termite about now. Can we go home and eat?
KION: Best idea I've heard all day.
KION: Hey, buddy, how you doing?
BUNGA: I'm fine. I guess...
BESHTE: Miss the termites?
BUNGA: I'm trying to be brave about it. But I gotta admit... (SNIFFLING) I do miss 'em.
FULI: Well... We've got a little surprise that might make you feel better.
BUNGA: I don't think there's anything that could do that.
ONO: How about a thank you gift from the aardwolves?
BUNGA: They saved me some! Un-Bunga-lievable! Hey, it's working! I really do feel better!
