The Lion Guard
The Rise of Makuu
Big Springs is first seen when Beshte brings his friends there to get cleaned off. He demonstrates how the fish work to clean the mud off the hides of the hippos, and Bunga attempts to try the trick himself. The fish, however, are repelled by his scent and swim away in a hurry.
Pua soon approaches and asks Basi if it is all right for the crocodiles to eat their share of fish in Big Springs. Basi politely declines, explaining that there are still not enough fish to feed the float, and Pua respectfully turns to leave. A young crocodile named Makuu, however, challenges him to a mashindano, thinking the float has a right to the fish in Big Springs.
Once Makuu rises to power, he invades Big Springs, causing the other animals of the Pride Lands to switch habitats in chaos. Kion and the Lion Guard soon intervene, but Makuu refuses to give up his spot. He only adheres to Kion's leadership when the young cub demonstrates the Roar of the Elders. After this, Makuu docilely leaves the springs, and the hippos return to their home.
