Lightening causes a fire in the mountains and a terrified Ponya runs for her life. Tabaqui discovers the exhausted Ponya but Darzee alters Mowgli, Baloo and Bagheera to Ponya's plight. Tabaqui then uses Darzee to divert Baloo and Bagheera to a false emergency involving the baby crocodiles and then lures Ponya into Shere Kahn's territory. With the help of Cheel, Mowgli finds Ponya and Cheel saves the small panda, lifting her to safety. In the nick of time Baloo and Bagheera arrive to save Mowgli. The rain kills the mountain fire and Ponya returns to her mountain home.
