How True, Zazu is one of the stories from The Lion King: Six New Adventures.
Zazu, true to his duty, reports everything that happens in the Pride Lands to King Mufasa. Some young animals, fed up of Zazu poking his beak into everyone's business, make up stories so that Zazu will report false information. Mufasa grows angry with Zazu for leading him on wild goose chases. However, a swarm of army ants threatens the Pride Lands, and Mufasa reluctantly believes Zazu. But Mufasa grows complacent and is attacked by the ants. Zazu guides Mufasa to a river and Mufasa jumps in, washing away the biting ants. The Pridelanders form a plan and the ants are defeated. Mufasa never doubts Zazu's word again.
