He is one of the four animals from the forest who joins the circus, alongside Ricky the wildcat, Donald the wildcat, and Irene the fallow deer. Toby's act is flying around the circus, flying a kite, while strapped to a firework.

- Originally, Mark Hughes, a Welsh association football manager, was chosen to voice Toby. However, Hughes' gruff voice was deemed unsuitable for a young character like Toby, so singer Rita Ora was cast instead.
