Uroho sings "The Traveling Baboon Show", during which he and his troop show off their skills

While patrolling the Pride Lands, the Lion Guard notices several animals taking off in the same direction. They follow the commotion to where a large group of Pride Landers has gathered beneath a tree. Mbeya the rhinoceros explains that the animals have gathered to see a troop of performing baboons.

Just then, Mwevi and Mwizi the baboons leap out of the tree and begin performing impressive tricks for their spectators. Uroho soon joins them and formally introduces his troop as the Traveling Baboon Show. Uroho and the group sing "The Traveling Baboon Show", in which they speak of their group's amazing feats and talents.

After Ono discovers the baboons have been stealing food, they toss him around in order to prevent his report

After the show, the Lion Guard approaches Uroho and congratulates him on an entertaining show. At first, Uroho is receptive to their thanks, but when Kion mentions that he is the son of King Simba, the baboon becomes uncomfortable and takes off in a hurry.

With the troop otherwise occupied, the Lion Guard returns to their patrol. Along the way, they hear Ma Tembo crying for help, and they follow her voice to where a tree has been completely stripped of its flowers and leaves. The Lion Guard resolves to find the thief and restore order to the Pride Lands.

Just then, the Lion Guard hears the Traveling Baboon Show making a clamor in the distance, and they decide to watch the show in order to see if the thief is in attendance. While the other Lion Guard members gather around the show, Ono patrols from the air and catches two baboons from the troop, Mwevi and Mwizi, stealing food from a tree while Uroho continues to run the show. The baboons realize that they have been caught and return to Uroho.

In the face of their guilt, Uroho and his troop flee the Lion Guard

Ono attempts to tell Kion what he has discovered, but the baboons grab him from the audience and begin tossing him back and forth, effectively cutting off his report. Eventually, Ono is able to wrest himself free from the grip of the baboons, and he declares to the rest of the Lion Guard that the troop is guilty of stealing the Pride Lands' food. Kion commands Beshte to shake the troop's tree, which reveals the mounds of fruit and leaves that Uroho and the baboons have been stealing.

In the face of their guilt, Uroho and his troop flee, and the Lion Guard chases them across the Pride Lands. In the midst of the chase, the baboons scare a herd of antelope into scattering, and two of the antelope fall into a nearby river. The Lion Guard halts their chase in order to save the antelope, and the baboons manage to escape into the Outlands.

Uroho and company are trapped by Janja's clan

In the Outlands, Cheezi and Chungu the hyenas are complaining about how hungry they are when they hear Uroho's troop playing music in the distance. They follow the sound to where Uroho is putting on a show for a meager audience of Outlanders. In the meantime, Mwevi and Mwizi attempt to steal food from a volcano, but they are cut short by Janja, who begins to chase them in an attempt to eat them.

Back in the Pride Lands, the Lion Guard reflects on the Traveling Baboon Show and how the baboons had turned out to be thieves. In the midst of the conversation, Ono spots Mwevi and Mwizi being chased by Janja. Kion is loathe to get involved in another kingdom's problems, but Ono points out that Uroho and the troop had only entered the Outlands because they had been being chased by the Lion Guard. Kion then decides to save the troop, and the Lion Guard takes off for the Outlands.

Uroho returns their stolen food to the Pride Landers

Meanwhile, Cheezi and Chungu are watching Uroho's show in fascination when Janja runs by and orders them to help him catch the baboons. The hyenas give chase, and the Lion Guard follows their trail to where they have cornered the baboons in a cavern. The team defeats Janja and his lackeys, and Uroho thanks the Lion Guard for saving their lives. In repayment for their past crimes, Uroho and the troop agrees to hand out food to the Pride Landers, who are grateful for the baboons' change of heart. As they hand out food, the baboons put on another show and use Ono as one of their props again.

Uroho and his lackeys, Mwevi and Mwizi, partake in Bunga's Christmas performance

In the Pride Lands, Fuli tries to gather berries from a tree. Her failed efforts to reach them attract the attention of Uroho and his lackeys, Mwevi and Mwizi, who volunteer to fetch them for her. The baboons question Fuli as to why she needs the berries, and she explains that she is taking part in a great Christmas celebration. This reminds her that the performance requires baboons to take part, and so she recruits the three to be involved in the show.

That night, Uroho, Mwevi, and Mwizi attend Bunga's rehearsal.

The next morning, Uroho and his lackeys take part in the "The Twelve Ways of Christmas" performance.

Physical appearance

Though not as stocky as Mwevi and Mwizi, Uroho is a tall, broad-shouldered baboon with caramel-hued fur. He has a cream-colored underbelly and muzzle, with a darker stripe of fur running down his head.

Uroho's most striking feature is his coral pink nose.

Personality and traits

A true con artist, Uroho is slick and fast on his feet. He takes pride in his acrobatic skills, but can be a great coward when faced with danger. However, Uroho is not without nobility, and he expresses gratitude towards the Lion Guard when they save him from the hyenas, even going to far as to graciously return the fruit that he and his troupe stole.
