When Judy tries to introduce herself to them, Bucky rudely informs her that they are loud, with Pronk adding that they shouldn't be expected to apologize for it.

Role in Literature
Judy Hopps is up late watching a movie, when she hears a strange noise coming from Bucky and Pronk's apartment. After asking if everything is alright and getting a rude reply, Judy calls Nick Wilde and tells him of the situation. Nick, however, appears uninterested until Judy yells and drops her phone, causing Nick to express alarm. Judy knocks on the Oryx-Antlersons' door and asks if everything is okay, but Bucky quickly slams the door on her. Then, Nick and Officer McHorn arrive and McHorn knocks down the door of the apartment, where it is revealed that Pronk and Bucky are having a "pillow fight club" with some friends. Disgusted, Nick and McHorn leave, and Judy starts to leave too, but she hears Bucky and Pronk saying that Judy is not capable of protecting anyone anyway. Judy grabs a pillow and pounces playfully on the group, saying that not everything is as it seems.
- He and Pronk are a married same-sex couple.
- He is voiced by Byron Howard (who also voiced Travis), making a cameo appearance in the movie he co-directed with Jared Bush, who in turn voiced Pronk Oryx-Antlerson.
