He hired a tick bird to eat the bugs off his back so that he could be like all of the other hippos. There is just one problem. Kumba, his tick bird, misunderstands him when he tells her to make herself at home. Now Amos has to walk around with a bird's nest on his head, and he doesn't like it one bit! To make matters worse, all of the other animals are making fun of him. What's a hippo to do?
