The Fenner Brothers are minor antagonists from the Disney movie, The Princess and the Frog.
Role in the film
The Fenner Brothers are first seen removing their Real Estate Business sign next to the place Tiana buys, which would one day become her restaurant. They promise to bring the papers she has to sign after Mardi Gras but later at night, at the La Bouff's party; disguised as a horse, they inform her that she was outbid by a gentleman, possibly Dr. Facilier, and that unless she can top his offer by Wednesday, she "can kiss that place: Good-Bye." However it's unlikely as it is that someone would bid on the mill after twenty years of it being untouched in the same week Tiana placed her bid, the Fenner brothers probably made that up to prevent having to sell the mill to a woman of color. Tiana tries to object but they tell her that "a woman of her background" would have difficulties running a restaurant business despite complimenting her cooking. After Tiana's been turned into a frog and she, with Naveen, are being chased by Stella, they get a cake thrown on them, thus resembling clowns. At the end of the movie, they accept Tiana's sum of cash and surrender the key to Tiana's restaurant due to Louis' "persuasion."
- Their appearances are based on the film's directors, John Musker and Ron Clements.
- The taller brother may be a bit more sympathetic than the shorter brother; as he seemed rather reluctant to tell Tiana about being outbid while the shorter one just thoughtlessly blurted it out.
- The Fenners are similar to Chi-Fu from Mulan, as they are all minor antagonists who dislike a certain Disney Princess for personal and unfair reasons (The Fenners dislike African Americans and Chi-Fu underestimates females.
- The Fenners are Disney's representation of a bigoted group of people, in their case they represent racists, similar to Chi-Fu who represents sexists.
- Their names are revealed in the end credits; Henry (tall one) and Harvey (short one).
