Francis (voiced by Trey Parker) is a student at South Park Elementary in the Fourth Grade. He was a common background character and classroom regular for several seasons, but in recent years has seen much less use.
His first appearance was in the background of "Sexual Harassment Panda". He was later shown to be Jewish while attending Jew Scouts in "Jewbilee". 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 in "Elementary School Musical".
He has short, medium brown hair, a lock of which hangs down his forehead, and wears a light brown sweater with the "Snacky Smores" beaver mascot on it, and dark blue jeans. A boy who resembles him was sitting in cafeteria in "Tom's Rhinoplasty".
