Kimba is a young white lion whose early months were marred by tragedy; his father was captured and killed before he was born, and his mother died after the boat they were in capsized. Now back in his real home, in the jungles of Africa, Kimba is joined by a number of fellow animal comrades including a wise baboon, ever-squawking parrot and hat-wearing giraffe. Though humans often try to capture the animals of the forest, Kimba believes in non-violence and hopes that someday, man and beast can communicate and live in harmony.
