Francis is a male fourth grader at South Park Elementary. He was formerly voiced by Matt Stone, and then by Trey Parker. He first appeared in the Season One episode, "Tom's Rhinoplasty", and has been a common background character and classroom regular for several seasons.


His first appearance was in the background of the cafeteria in "Tom's Rhinoplasty". He was later shown to be Jewish while attending Jew Scouts in "Jewbilee". However, this might not be canon, as he was still being used as a placeholder character back in Season 3 and Kyle has been established to be the only Jewish kid in his grade.

In "Timmy 2000", he was on the cover of the 'alternative ADD treatment' booklet. He was ranked #14 on the rigged list in "The List", making this his official naming.

He also plays on the school's basketball team, as shown in "Elementary School Musical".

Francis' parents were shown in "The Wacky Molestation Adventure".

Criminal Record[]

  • Assault: In "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society", Francis was among the boys who physically fought each other to try to win Bebe's affections.
  • Civil unrest/rioting: Francis is one of many students who participated in the South Park Elementary gender war in "Proper Condom Use". He was also one of many students seen rioting in the school hallways over the cancellation of Columbus Day in "Holiday Special".
  • Indecent exposure: During the Wieners Out Movement of Season Twenty, he joins Butters' cause and frequently exposes his genitals.
  • False police report: In "The Wacky Molestation Adventure", he files a false police report that adults were 'molestering' kids.


He has short, medium brown hair, a lock of which hangs down his forehead, wears a light brown sweater with the "Snacky S'mores" beaver mascot roasting marshmallows on it, and darkish blue jeans.

In his appearance in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, he wore the same outfit as Clyde Donovan, a burgundy coat with blue trim, matching mittens, and a pair of brown trousers.



In "Skank Hunt", it is revealed that Francis and Nelly were in a relationship. However, it is dissolved when all of the girls end their relationships with the boys, in retaliation against Skankhunt42's online trolling. Francis is notably shocked and can be seen weeping in the hallway following the breakup. However, in "Douche and a Danish", Francis can be seen in the crowd of boys encouraging Butters to fight Nelly, indication that Francis has moved on from their break up and fully supports Butters' decision to start the Wieners Out movement, as do the rest of the boys.


  • He was called "Lockie" by fans before his name was revealed.
  • It's a possibility that he might be Jewish since he's one of the the Jew Scouts in "Jewbilee".
  • He’s had a different sounding voice in every episode he’s spoken in.
  • Two variations of his shirt appear as player customization choices in South Park: Snow Day!.
