Franco Aplenty Model Sheet

Franco Aplenty is an adult male pug who bears a strong family resemblance to his daughter, Pickles. His coloration is nearly identical to hers with cream-colored fur, but with gray patches of fur instead of brown.

He wears a light grey button-down collared shirt, teal and white striped necktie, brown sports jacket, black dress pants, brown belt, black socks with lavender polka-dots, and brown loafers.


Franco Aplenty apparently has anger management issues and has taken anger management classes, to help him deal with said anger.


Season 6[]

In Surprise!, Pickles' parents Franco and Demi, are seen talking to Princess Carolyn, who is holding her daughter Ruthie. Demi tells her husband that nobody wants to hear about his time-traveling orthodontist pitch. Franco then tells his wife she is "lighting a long fuse on a short stick of dynamite." Demi shakes her head at this. She says, "oh, whoop and a big one at that." They both then walk away.

Mr. Peanutbutter and Pickles are fighting, and he retorts that at least no one in his family has anger issues. Pickles says her father has come a long way in his anger management classes. Mr. Peanutbutter then says Franco is a hothead with a little pug complex.

He then goes on to say everyone always makes excuses for Franco's outbursts. This angers Franco, who is listening in on the conversation. "Shushing" noises are heard in the background, and Demi restrains Franco from giving away their hiding place.

He then goes on to talk about how Demi tries to provoke her husband. He then says he thinks the couple gets off on that, and they make everyone else unwilling participants to their kinky foreplay. Pickles is grossed out by this, saying those are her parents.

Later, the party-goers come out of their hiding spots and subsequently leave.
