Rita (voiced by Holly G. Frankel) is a city fox from Copenhagen and the second main protagonist of the Jungledyret franchise alongside Hugo. She is Hugo's streetwise urban counterpart and helps him adjust to city life. Spunky but pragmatic, she frequently voices her frustration with Hugo's impulsive and self-centred tendencies, but remains committed to him and is ever ready to forgive his mistakes. Hugo and Rita quickly develop a romantic relationship, and in Jungledyret 2 she leaves her family den to establish a new home with him, a theme that continues into the television series (although the romantic element is downplayed in later media and virtually removed in the Miramax dub).
