― Groucho, City Folk
Groucho (クロー, Kurō?) is a cranky bear villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appears in Animal Crossing, was absent in Wild World, but reappears in City Folk. His name may come from the word "grouchy," another word used for someone who is "cranky." In real life, a famous bearer of the name Groucho was the middle brother of five, who went on to form The Marx Brothers; another of the brothers' names appears in Animal Crossing series, Chico the mouse. His Japanese name refers to the color of his fur, black ( kuro?). His initial phrase is a reference towards the fact that many people "grumble", or "mumble angrily" when they are upset.



Groucho is a dark, navy blue bear with a moody expression upon his face. He also has some scars just above his eyes, which may also be considered light orange strips of hair. His inner ears and muzzle are beige, and he has a big, black nose. He initially wears the Windsock shirt in Animal Crossing, and the Lite Polka Tee in City Folk and New Leaf. He carries the Paper Parasol on rainy days.


Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood and are more difficult to befriend than most other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Groucho will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Groucho will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.


In Animal Crossing, Groucho's house is modern themed. There is a modern sofa and modern table in the center. A baby bear, which relates to his species, a bear. In the North, there is a modern desk, office chair, gold stereo, and samurai suit. There are three golf bags in the bottom-left corner. In the bottom-right corner, there is a batbrella. He listens to K.K. Rock; however, when he returned from being absent from Wild World in City Folk, it was changed to K.K. Metal.

In New Leaf, Groucho has many items from the Modern Series, including the table, the bed, the desk, and the sofa. He also owns a Bonsai, a Croton, a golf bag, a spotlight, an office chair, and a gold stereo which plays K.K. Metal. His wall is the Shanty Wall and his carpet is Old Board Flooring.

Profile If you were to tell Groucho that he was kind of an imposing figure, he'd be surprised. For some reason, he doesn't see why anyone would be scared of a surly bear with a big scar on his head. Go figure.
