Viper Snakely, famed trapper, and his sidekick Tubby, masquerade as professors studying animal habits to gain the confidence of the animals and Roger Ranger. They invite the animals to a party, where all are fed sleeping potions in their soft drinks. Kimba, Dan'l Baboon, Pauley Cracker and Bucky are not at the party, and when Kimba tells them he recognizes the men as the hunters who trapped his parents, Caesar and Snowene, they encourage him to seek revenge. But Kimba has wisdom to know that revenge breeds trouble, and he resolves to work for peace in the jungle. When they find a hidden rifle and realize what has probably happened to their friends, they run to rescue the animals. Dan'l, Pauley and Bucky tire from running and Kimba must go on alone. On the way, he encounters the wily trapper, and when Kimba attacks him, Snakely's gun accidentally fires and he pretends that was a signal to harm the animals because he is in danger. The villain then jumps into his jeep and roars away, leaving Kimba thinking he has been the cause of harm to his friends. Back at the camp, Snakely loads the animals onto trucks to take them to civilization where they can be sold. As the caravan crosses the plains, Samson and his buffaloes charge and defeat Snakely, rescuing the animals. After such a close call the animals go happily singing on their way home.
