- ―Fru Fru shopping with her friends
Fru Fru is a slim shrew with golden-brown fur. She has thick, dark hair, a long snout and blue eyes identical to her father's.
Fru Fru is quite fashionable, and is seen wearing three different outfits during the film: a mint green dress with gold jewelry; a lacy, white wedding dress and veil; and a mint green mumu. She is taller than her father.
Role in the Film
Fru Fru is first seen shopping with her friends in Little Rodentia at Targoat where she is almost crushed by a giant (compared to her), runaway donut sign. She is saved in the nick of time by Officer Judy Hopps, who compliments her hair.
Later, in Tundratown, when Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde are on the verge of being 'iced' (plunged into freezing water), she enters her father's office to call him to come dance with her when she notices what he's doing and protests, reminding him of his promise not to ice anyone during her wedding.
She also notices that one of the two is the same officer who saved her, which causes Mr. Big to spare them in gratitude, and invite them to Fru Fru's wedding. Meanwhile, Judy compliments her wedding gown.Later in the film, when Mr. Big is "helping" Judy and Nick with a less-than-cooperative Duke Weaselton, she walks in and is revealed to be pregnant, and that Mr. Big had designated Judy to be the godmother of his future granddaughter.
