Fox is another student in Franklin's class. He's often seen with Rabbit as they are best friends, but occasionally hangs out with Raccoon. He lives with his parents in a house with a expansive backyard. His father drives the school bus and is also known for his aptitude at repairing mechanical objects, and recycling various materials and is also one of two volunteer firefighters in Woodland. Fox is a bit of daredevil and can be a bit of a troublemaker also at times, but is otherwise a good friend to those around him. He doesn't hang around with Franklin as much as Bear and Snail, but the two still enjoy playing together from time to time. There are a couple of indicators in the original series that he has a crush on Badger, such as a reference to a secret Valentine.

Franklin clutches her for comfort, as he's afraid of thunderstorms, and she later provides the group with treats.
