Francine is a villain on The Electric Company and is the leader of the Pranksters. Francine has the same wordball power as The Electric Company, but they don't let her in for some reason. Francine is self-centered, always trying to prove herself better then everyone, particularly Lisa. She is a huge spoiled brat and uses her own materialism to mock the Electric Company and even fellow pranksters. Starting in season three, Gilda Flipp is her assistant, trying to learn how to be the best Prankster possible from her. Carl also served similar purposes, but that was because he pitied Francine once and was expected to serve from that point on. Francine is played by Ashely Austin Morris.
