The Shiny Stones

A parrot named Pilfer is seen stealing shiny stones from Timon, who shakes his fist angrily at the bird. No sooner has the meerkat done this when a cape dog appears, ready to eat Timon. Before the carnivore can devour Timon, Pilfer drops his stone on the predator's head, and the cape dog runs away in a hurry. No longer angry at the parrot, Timon begins to exchange savanna stories with Pilfer, who soon becomes like an old friend.

While talking, Pilfer reveals to Timon that there are more shiny stones elsewhere. Wanting to impress Pumbaa and Simba, Timon agrees to follow the parrot's directions to the shiny stones. When he reaches the location, however, he is informed by an aardvark named Arnold that parrots had long ago extracted all the shiny stones from their original location.
