Groucho is a cranky, bear villager in the Animal Crossing series, first appearing in Animal Crossing. He was absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World, but returned to the Animal Crossing series in Animal Crossing: City Folk. His name may come from the word "grouchy," another word used for someone who is "cranky." In real life, a famous Groucho was the middle brother of five, who went on to form The Marx Brothers; another of the brothers' names appears in the Animal Crossing series, named Chico the mouse.

In New Horizons, Groucho has the music hobby and will be more frequently seen singing or dancing. If a stereo is set outside with a song playing, he will sing to the melody; if other instruments are set up, such as drums or guitars, he may play along.

Groucho is a dark, navy blue bear with a nervous expression upon his face, making him appear similar to a lazy villager. He also has some scars just above his eyes, which may also be considered light orange strips of hair.


Below is a brief description of the Cranky personality. For more information, click here.

As a cranky villager, Groucho will appear mature compared to other male personality types. This will make him appear serious as well as rude when talking to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies - not for competition, but for relaxing and peaceful reasons of calm and tranquility. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will appear to dislike, and mention this behind their backs, often planting rumors. He will get along with normal, snooty and jock villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, who he will share deeper conversations with. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villager, usually when criticizing something or someone. When he is sick, he will insult the illness.
