Recap / The Lion Guard S 1 E 11 Paintings And Predictions

Go To

Summary: Believing that Rafiki's paintings predict the future, Bunga enlists the rest of the Lion Guard to Save Kion from danger.

This episode contains examples of:

  • An Aesop: As Rafiki says, "Leap to conclusions and you leap to confusion."
  • Aesop Amnesia: Bunga once again blows the situation out of proportion just like "Bunga the Wise" and "Fuli's New Family."
  • All There in the Manual: According to the subtitles, the lead zebra stallion's name is Thurston. According to all other sources, he's Punda Milia.

  • Comically Missing the Point: Ushari tells Bunga he should bite him again for landing on him again, but won't, claiming he couldn't get the taste out of his mouth for days. Bunga licks himself, then tells Ushari he's missing out.
  • Continuity Nod: Ushari mentions that the last time he bit Bunga, he couldn't get the taste of Bunga's musk out of his mouth.
  • Everyone Laughs Ending
  • Friend to All Living Things: Kion blatantly tells Bunga to leave Ushari be, pretty much making it clear he has had enough of the Ushari-Bunga conflicts.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: The first shot of "Panic And Run" is of a zebra's backside. Now this could be interpreted as looking from a hyena's perspective since they are predators, but that is pretty blatant, especially since it is seen rather than said or implied. Another one is that when they encounter Ushari, he brings up "Fuli's New Family" stating that he couldn't get Bunga's stench out of his mouth for days.

  • Identical Grandson: Apparently, Nala's father looked just like her son.
  • Never Say "Die": Bunga and Beshte believe Kion will fall off a tree saying "Or worse" instead of bringing up death.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: By trying really hard to protect Kion, Bunga and the Lion Guard end up making things go From Bad to Worse for the zebras.
  • Obligatory Joke: When the zebras start running wildly, Janja says, "Great — I love fast food!" (Ah, just like his predecessors...)
  • The Reveal: It is revealed at the end that the cub Bunga saw falling from the tree branch in Rafiki's painting was actually Kion's maternal grandfather, and he was saved by the Lion Guard that was active in that day.
  • Somewhere, a Herpetologist Is Crying: Ushari is portrayed as being able to constrict animals. Almost all constrictors are nonvenomous, and almost all venomous snakes lack the ability to constrict their prey. Egyptian cobras are not among the few exceptions to this rule.

  • Villain Song: "Panic And Run", the hyenas' third song.

How well does it match the trope?
