The Lion King
Simba approaches his best friend Nala as her mother Sarafina is bathing her, and announces that he'd like to show her a "really cool" place. Simba's own mother asks what this place is, and Simba tells her that it's around the Water Hole. Irritated, Nala demands to know what's so great about the Water Hole, and Simba tells her that he'll show her when they get there. The cubs receive permission to go from their mothers, but under the condition that they are accompanied by Zazu.
Zazu leads the two cubs towards the Water Hole, which is visible in the distance, as they whisper together. Eventually, Simba sings "I Just Can't Wait to be King", with Nala joining in at one point, to shake off Zazu.

A Tale of Two Brothers
A crisis at the water hole nearly keeps Simba from fulfilling his promise to his son, Kopa.
How True, Zazu?
Cheka, Sukari, Lulu, and Nzuri are seen playing in the water hole while their parents stand off to the side and discuss Zazu's nosiness.
The Brightest Star
When a drought strikes the Pride Lands, the water hole becomes a war zone. A particularly selfish lion attempts to ward off the many animals who attempt to drink from the pool, hogging the water and refusing to share with his fellow Pride Landers. In order to solve the dispute, Mohatu seeks out a new source of water.
