Enjoying a feast

Bunga begins to search for Utamu grubs after explaining them to the Lion Guard. He reveals that when he was very young, he found Utamu grubs for his uncles Timon and Pumbaa, and that he had continued to find them every year since. This time, however, he fails to find the grubs, to his great disappointment. Upon admitting this to Timon and Pumbaa, however, they reveal that they had found Utamu grubs in a log that had seemingly fallen from the sky. The family then happily eats the grubs.


  • Utamu means 'sweetness' in Swahili.
