Role in the short
The bird is first seen resting on a black rhinoceros' horn. The Titbird acts as a warning sign for the rhino, against a shotgun-wielding Goofy, who tries to shoot at it. Goofy tries his shoot against the rhinoceros, but the animal is too much for Goofy. He evidently leaves Africa and flees from the rhinoceros for the other hunters to shoot.
