Cheetahs never prosper...

Okay, stay low to the ground, right yeah ...

What's going on?

A pouncing lesson.

Oh very good. Pouncing.


Oh no, sire, you can't be serious ...

Oh, ... this is so humiliating.

Try not to make a sound.

What are you telling him Mufasa? Mufasa? ...Simba?

Ha ha ha ha ha. That's very good. Ha ha ha...



Sir. News from the underground.

Now, this time--

Sire! Hyenas!! In the Pride Lands!

Zazu, take Simba home.

Oh Dad, can't I come?

No, son.

I never get to go anywhere.

"Oh young master, one day you will be king;"

then you can chase those slobbering, mangy,

stupid poachers from dawn until dusk.

Hey Uncle Scar, guess what!

I despise guessing games.

I'm going to be king of Pride Rock.

Oh goodee.

My Dad just showed me the whole kingdom,

and I'm going to rule it all. Heh heh.

Yes. Well... forgive me for not leaping for joy....

Bad back, you know.

Hey, Uncle Scar? When I'm king, what will that make you?

A monkey's uncle.

Heh heh. You're so weird.

You have no idea. ...

So, your father showed you the whole kingdom, did he?


He didn't show you what's beyond

that rise at the northern border...?

Well, no... he said I can't go there.

And he's absolutely right!

It's far too dangerous. Only the bravest lions go there.

Well, I'm brave! What's out th--

"No, I'm sorry Simba; I just can't tell you."

Why not?

"Simba, Simba; I'm only looking out for

the well-being of my favorite nephew."

"Yeah, right; I'm your only nephew."

All the more reason for me to be protective...

An elephant graveyard is no place for a young prince ... Oops!

An elephant what? Whoa!

Oh dear, I've said too much....

Well, I suppose you'd have found out sooner or later,

you being so clever and all....
