Please Help Pets with a Small Donation of One Dollar

King Mufasa, the revered ruler of Pride Rock and the
lands that surround it, teaches his young cub, Simba
about the Circle of Life, that delicate balance of
nature which bonds all animals together. Simba's father
also prepares Simba for the day when he will be
called upon to take over the throne and rule the land.

However, Mufasa's evil brother, Scar, hopes that
day never comes. After the birth of Simba, Scar finds
himself second in line to the throne, and doesn't like
it one little bit.

Mufasa's trusted advisor, Zazu is a prim and proper hornbill
with a strong sense of personal dignity. Although Zazu's
feathers can be easily ruffled, he is dedicated to Mufasa.
The honorable hornbill would give his right wing for the
lion king and stays with the pride through good and bad times.

Zazu seems to have a penchant for getting in the other
animal's business. Sometimes Zazu finds himself getting
hurt cause he doesnít pay attention easily.

Zazuís job was to look after Simba and Nala when ever they
would adventure off the Pride Rock.

Simba manages to escape Zazu and finds himself in some
big trouble. When Zazu finally reaches Mufasa and tells
him whats going on, Mufasa rushes to help his son, but
dies in the process.


Zazu: "Nobody knows the trouble I've seen, nobody knows my sorrow..."
Scar: "Oh come now, Zazu, lighten up,sing something with a little
bounce in it!"
Zazu (thinks a moment): "It's a small world, after all!"
Scar: "No! No! Anything but that!"

Zazu: "Oh no! Not the birdie boiler!"


Shenzi: "Well, well, well, Banzai, what have we got here?"
Banzai: "Mmm...I don't know, Shenzi. Uh, what do you think, Ed?"
Ed: (crazy laughter)
Banzai: "Just what I was thinkin'. A trio of TRESPASSERS!"
Zazu: "And quite by accident, let me assure you. A simple
navigational error."

Shenzi: "Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait, wait, wait. I know you. You're
Mufasa's little stooge."
Zazu: "I, madam, am the king's Majordomo."
Banzai: (to Simba) "And that would make you..."
Simba: "The future king."
Shenzi: "Do you know what we do to kings who step out of their
Simba: "Puh. You can't do anything to me."
Zazu: "Technically, they can. We are on their land."
Simba: "But Zazu, you told me they're nothing but slobbering,
mangy, stupid poachers!"
Zazu: "Ix-nay on the upid-stay."

Banzai: "Who ya callin' upid-stay?"



It's an honor and a privilege, a duty I perform
With due sense of decorum and with pride
With deference and great respect very much the norm
Plus a hint of sycophancy on the side
To lay before my ruler all the facts about his realm
To fill him in on all the beastly news



The buffalo have got a beef
About this season's grass
Warthogs have been thwarted
In attempts to save their gas
Flamingoes in the pink
Chasing secretary birds
Saffron is theis season's color
Seen in all the herds
Moving down the rank and file
To near the bottom rung
Far too many beetles are
Quite frankly in the dung



Well the gossip from the bees is that the leopards are having
difficulties. And the baboons are going crazy over this. Of
course, the giraffes are acting like they're too important to be
botherered with it... The tick birds are picking on the
elephants. I told the elephants to forget it, but they can't. The
cheetahs don't have much money, but I always say, cheaters never
