Lion prince Simba and his father are targeted by his bitter uncle, who wants to ascend the throne himself.
During the song "Be Prepared", two hyenas wave skeletons of creatures, creating shadow images of them "dancing" that imitate the dancing skeletons from "Night on Bald Mountain", right down to the curving, "noodly" movements.
Life's not fair, is it? You see, I... well, I shall never be king. And you... shall never see the light of another day. Hmm-hmm-hmm, adieu.
Zazu: Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with your food?
Simba clearly pounces on Zazu's back, but when they are on the ground, Simba's paws are on Zazu's front.
