Synopsis
Joey brown-noses Leo, who then casually calls him "little brother." The baboons mix it up with Joey over, first, Leo's food; second, over Joey's bragging being Leo's little brother; third, over Leo's waterhole; and, finally, after having caught Joey by the tail under a big rock, their plot to roll a big rock on Leo, too. At risk of his own skin Joey warns Leo, so the baboons roll rocks down at Joey, but one rock breaks the big rock holding Joey's tail, freeing him. Leo and his girl, Princess Leona, and Joey rout the baboons, and Leona declares all the jungle will now know Joey's status.

Indexer Notes

Gaylord Du Bois script credit per "Gaylord Du Bois's Account Books Sorted by Title compiled from the original account books by Randall W. Scott" (1985), page 187: "Little Brother to the King. 9p."

Per page panel count is 4,8,8,8,8,8,7,7; the effect, one presumes, of fitting a 9 page story into 8 pages.
