The Lion Guard

"Never Judge a Hyena by Its Spots"

The herd is grazing in a field when Fuli, Beshte, Ono, and Bunga are trying to figure out the way to Flat Ridge Rock. Thurston comes over, overhearing their conversation, and offers to help. However, he admits to not know where Flat Ridge Rock is located, and upon forgetting where he was going, Ono directs him back to his herd.

"The Rise of Makuu"

The herd attends the Mashindano between Pua and Makuu. When Makuu throws Pua over, one member leans back, while two others lean forward.

"Eye of the Beholder"

Thurston's Herd is grazing in a field. Ono flies over and dives at the herd, making them panic and run further away from a nearby canyon. When Kion uses the Roar to free himself and the Lion Guard from the canyon, a cloud of dust sweeps towards the herd, but it missed by a few feet and they seem not to notice it and continue eating.

"Paintings and Predictions"

The herd is stampeding through the Pride Lands when the Lion Guard come to can them down. The stampede causes a rock high above to fall, but Fuli is able to move the zebras out of the way just in time. The Lion Guard asks what caused the stampede and Thurston said it was "great big boom".Ono concluded that it was thunder from a storm that occurred not too long ago. Thurston then says that the herd did what they always did when something scared them, panicked and ran. Ono assures the that it is safe for the herd to go home now, but Thurston forgot where their home is.

Ono then guides the herd back to their grazing grounds. Later when the zebras reach the grazing grounds, the herd resumes it's grazing. But the Janja, Cheezi and Chungu attack, making the herd panic and run. The Lion Guard arrives and chases the hyenas away, but three members of the herd are separated from the others. The Guard goes to fetch them, and with the help of Kion's Roar, are able to save them and lead them back to their herd.

"The Imaginary Okapi"

The herd graze peacefully when a newcomer, Ajabu the okapi, blends in with them. When Thurston notices the intruder, he accidentally calls attention to him and a leopard named Makucha, who attacks the herd with the sole intention of stealing Ajabu away. The herd panic and run and Thurston even ends up landing on Makucha, but the leopard casts him aside and continues his chase, leaving Thurston offended.

"Never Roar Again"

Thurston and his herd graze at the Flood Plains, but are forced to abandon their spot when Makuu takes over.

"Swept Away"

Thurston and several other members of his herd become trapped in dried mud. When the Lion Guard arrive, Kion uses his Roar on a raincloud, which dissolves the mud.

"Rescue in the Outlands"

As the herd drinks from a river, the Lion Guard attempts to calm a herd of stampeding buffalo. Eventually, the herd is driven into the water, much to Thurston's annoyance.

Later, after helping the Guard rescue Jasiri, Tunu, and Wema, Thurston misunderstands Kion's praise, and tells his herd that he is a member of the Lion Guard.

"Timon and Pumbaa's Christmas"

Along with several other Pride Landers, Thurston's Herd participate in a Christmas celebration for Timon and Pumbaa.

"The Scorpion's Sting"

Named Members


Thurston is the leader of the herd.

Kwato is a young zebra.

Kwato is notorious for causing trouble around the Pride Lands, as he thinks little about the repercussions of his games. He does, however, take instruction well and looks up to the Lion Guard.
