The Urban Rangers are a Boy Scout-style organization introduced in "Oath to an Ed" consisting of Rolf, Jimmy, Jonny 2x4, and Plank. They earn badges and medallions for different tasks completed which are usually just normal, everyday tasks. They appear to often take camping trips to the woods as a chance to earn certain camping badges seen in "An Ed in the Bush."
The Eds once attempted to join the Urban Rangers in hopes of earning a copy of their uniform, however, they were dishonorably discharged because they could not earn a single badge (largely, in part, due to Eddy). Now, because of that, Eddy has a severe grudge against them and often tries to prove that the Urban Rangers (or "Urban Losers" as he calls them) are a bunch of "phonies" in a way to exact revenge on them. His attempts to downplay the rangers fail and leave him in disgrace. The "Wee Roach" seems to be the lowest rank in the Urban Rangers, as new members start out as Wee Roaches.
It's revealed in "The Good, The Bad and The Ed" that the Urban Rangers have existed for sometime over fifty years. People who are not Urban Rangers can be temporarily sworn into the organization through the Urban Ranger Handbook, as seen in "Ed Overboard."
Urban Rangers Train
The Urban Rangers Train is only seen in the episode "The Good, The Bad and The Ed." It is used in the last test to earn the Hairy Chest of Resilience badge. It was seen on the train track that runs though the Mountain Range. The train appears to be a generic steam locomotive with the Urban Ranger's insignia on the front of it which is a hand making an L shape.

The Urban Rangers have had seven appearances in the show.
- "To Sir with Ed" (Jimmy was absent)
- The Urban Ranger salute is also the hand gesture for "loser". They put their thumb and finger making an L shape while holding their hand to their foreheads. It's also worth mentioning that Kevin and Eddy usually call the Urban Rangers "The Urban Losers."
- Upon a ranger's entrance, an arrival of mail or the presentation of a medal, a few notes are played on the bugle by either Jonny or Jimmy.
- In the MMOG game FusionFall, Eddy (who's king of the Cul-de-Sac) has an army of Urban Rangers, who act as shop owners and guards to the cardboard fortress (a giant fort, made of cardboard boxes, that surrounds the Cul-de-Sac). The guards carry wooden swords. They are all NPCs. Players may obtain an Urban Ranger uniform if they have Edd as their guide. Notable Urban Rangers in FusionFall include Ranger Joey & Ranger Melissa, who guard the cardboard fortress surrounding the Cul-de-Sac.
- In Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, Rolf and Jimmy, along with the other kids, forgive the Eds for their wrongdoings, while Jonny and Plank replace the Eds as the neighborhood's outcasts. It is unknown how this will affect the Urban Rangers.
- The Urban Rangers did not appear in Seasons 3 and 6, and did not show up in any of the specials or the movie (in the case of the latter, they were divided for the majority of it.)
- The Urban Rangers made their largest number of appearances in Season 5.
- "To Sir with Ed" is the only episode where an Urban Ranger (Jimmy) is absent from the group.
- In the fifth season, it's shown that the Urban Rangers have a position at Peach Creek Jr. High for things like hand-delivering report cards to the parents' of students and delivering mail from students' pen-pals through the school's International Studies-class.
- As shown in numerous episodes (namely "An Ed in the Bush" and "The Good, The Bad & The Ed"), the Urban Rangers have their own "official" paraphernalia (such as swiss army knives, water bottles, rakes, etc.) bearing their logo.
