- “First, we need to acknowledge the elephant in the room. Francine... happy birthday.”
- ―Chief Bogo to Pennington
Role in the Film
Francine appears in the bullpen when Judy Hopps arrives for her first day as a police officer.
She appears nervous when Chief Bogo says they need to address the 'elephant in the room', but sighs in relief when she learns Bogo just wants to wish her a happy birthday. In celebration, Officer Jackson starts playfully punching her side, prompting her to pick him up and give him a noogie.
- Francine has a line, but it is unknown who did her voice.
- There is a mistake in film regarding the number of elephants that were supposed to be present in the bullpen scene. Either there is only one elephant whose uniform changes mid-scene and is wearing a name badge saying "Pennington" but Bogo incorrectly calls her Trunkaby. Or there were supposed to be two elephants, Pennington and Trunkaby, each wearing different uniforms but the animators did not consistently render Trunkaby.
- When Judy first enters the bullpen, there is an elephant wearing a t-shirt/black vest watching Officer Andersen arm wrestle Officer Johnson and laughs when Andersen pins Johnson's arm to the table. Because of the uncertainty regarding the number of elephants in the bullpen, it is unknown if this elephant is Trunkaby or Pennington.
