Frances Alberta is the presumptive head zookeeper at the Hoboken Zoo who appeared in the episode "The Hoboken Surprise." In the episode, Frances was first revealed to be a cheerful zookeeper who had worked to clean up the zoo's poor conditions, gaining the respect of resident animals Rhonda, Hans, Clemson, Savio, and Lulu. Frances also afforded the animals under her care many amenities, such as fine cuisine, massage chairs, and a fountain of cheese. However, it is later revealed that Frances never had the respect of her animals, whom she had simply sealed away under the ground and replaced with android look-alikes, all in an effort to meet her demanding standard for cleanliness and to get the attention of Parks Commissioner Pervis McSlade. At the end of the episode, Commissioner McSlade fires her and the Hoboken Police arrests her for making android look-alike animals and assault of a Bartender.
Frances is very perky and happy. She is a complete neat freak and cannot stand a mess. She appears to be very intelligent, as she was able to build robotic duplicates of all the animals.
