Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion cross the china wall into a swampland. After traveling a while, they come to a forest. The Lion fells at home in the woodland, but the others think it is gloomy. Shortly, they come upon a gathering of animals. The animals are discussing how to get rid of a giant spider who is killing off the animals.

The Lion volunteers for the task. He head off by himself until he finds the spider sleeping. The Lion studies the spider until he spots a weakness then attacks. The spider is soon dead. The Lion returns to the group letting them know that he has slain the creature. They crown him King of the Beasts. The Lion promises to return to rule over them as soon as Dorothy is safely in Kansas.
