"I've got my eye on you."
— Picture quote, Wild World
"Sigh. I've gotta stop sighing like this... It only gets me down deeper in the dumps, grr-ribbit."
— Wart Jr., City Folk
Wart Jr. (サム,,Sam?) is a crankyfrogvillager in the Animal Crossing series. His English name relates to the myth that frogs, or commonly toads, have warts and can pass them on through contact. His name may also be a reference to Wart, a frog character in the Mario series, which is referenced to throughout the Animal Crossing franchise. His Japanese version name, Sam, is a reference to Microsoft Sam whose voice resembles those of cranky villagers.
His initial phrase, "grr-ribbit," is a combination of the growling sound and the sound a frog makes, which some people do when angered like most cranky people are. His picture quote in Wild World is very similar to that of another villager, Roscoe.
Wart Jr. is a burnt amber brown frog with tiny round spots that resemble warts, with one in the place of a nose. His laid-back eyes are bumped up into a froggy appearance, and he has a strawberry pink smile if his mouth is opened. His initial outfit was the Static Shirt, which was later changed to the Sharp Outfit from Wild World onward.

When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Wart Jr. will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well.
