The Lion KingEdit
The Gopher apparently works for Zazu, bringing him news "from the underground" and assisting the hornbill in jungle administration. In the movie, he brings Zazu the news that the hyenas have entered the Pride Lands.
The Gopher also appears in a couple Zazu-centered episodes in Timon and Pumbaa, although his design in the series is noticeably different from his first appearance. In "Zazu's Off Day Off" he brings the news to Zazu that an elephant has blocked the river. In "Zazu's Off By One," the gopher is (temporarily) given Zazu's job after Zazu makes an error while counting the animal population.
