Reggie, Darnell, and Two Fingers are a trio of bumbling frog hunters and are minor antagonists from Disney's 2009 animated feature film, The Princess and the Frog.


Reggie PATF.jpg

Reggie is the leader of the trio. Though short in stature, Reggie is a commanding force, often seen berating and abusing his two sons throughout their scene. He also appears to be the most malicious, as he clearly takes pride in hunting animals and openly gloats his victories. He speaks with a thick southern accent, and his tone ranges from high pitch to low and brooding, depending on his mood and the situation.

As mentioned above, Reggie is short, wears a green shirt underneath his brown overalls, has big pointed ears, a brown hat, and goes around barefoot.

Darnell PATF.jpg

Darnell is the large and bumbling son of Reggie and most incompetent of the trio. He's loud, speaks with a stereotypical "idiot" voice, and is often the bane of Reggie's existence. Though large and incredibly strong, physically, Darnell is probably the weakest link of the group, as his low IQ and oafish tendencies can cause great trouble for the hunters (though on some occasions, as seen when he accidentally captured Tiana, his goofy nature can be surprisingly resourceful).

Darnell is obese, incredibly tall, wears a red shirt underneath his blue overalls, along with a small brown pointed hat. He's also the only member of the trio to be bald, in addition to being barefoot, like his father and brother.

Two Fingers PATF.jpg

Though Reggie serves as the trio's leader, Two-Fingers can easily be considered the most menacing, as well as dangerous of the group. Whilst Reggie is loud and obnoxious, Two-Fingers is reserved, and appears to lack the ability of proper speech; instead, he communicates through grunts and other noises (although he can be heard discernibly mumbling "Hold still." when preparing to shoot Naveen off of Reggie's face.) Even so, he's apparently understood by Reggie. Despite being the most heavily armed of the trio, he is also prone to physical combat, as Reggie and Darnell are seen using nets and clubs as weapons, whilst Two-Fingers prefers to grab his meals, only resulting to weapons such as knives and guns when the target is far from reach or has completely infuriated the hunter.

Notably, he is named Two-Fingers due to the fact that he only has two fingers with a wristband on his right hand, and as far as appearance goes, Two-Fingers has crimson hair, a large brown hat, a purple shirt with brown pants secured by a rope tied around his waist, and also walks barefoot.


The Princess and the Frog

The three are hunting in the bayou when they encounter Tiana and Naveen (after they had been transformed into frogs by a curse of the evil Dr. Facilier) and decide to catch them to have frog legs for dinner. Reggie catches Naveen and takes him to the boat, but he escapes after Ray attacks Reggie. Two-Fingers and Darnell manage to catch Tiana in a cage and they start to leave. Naveen sees Tiana trapped and goes to rescue her, and he crashes into the boat, making a loud thud that startles the hunters.

The three hunters begin wondering where the noise came from when Naveen appears on Reggie's head. Darnell grabs his club to hit Naveen, but Naveen jumps and Reggie is hit instead. Reggie calls Two-Fingers for help, who decides to shoot Naveen, who was on Reggie's face, allowing Tiana to escape. Before Two-Fingers could shoot Naveen, Tiana moves the shotgun down and saves both Naveen and Reggie (though just barely in Reggie's case as it rips up his pants exposing his undergarments). The three begin inadvertently hitting each other with hopes to hit the frogs until they finally fall to the boat's floor after suffering numerous hits. An exhausted Reggie then mentions to his dazed companions that these two frogs are nothing like any frogs he’s ever seen, they’re smart before Tiana and Naveen land in front of them with Tiana retorting "And we talk, too!". Shocked and scared, they scream and leave the bayou quickly. They aren't seen again in the rest of the film.

Video games

The Princess and the Frog: Video Game

In the game storyline taking place after the events of the film, Reggie, Darnell, and Two-Fingers are shown to have reformed and apologize to Tiana for the mistreatment they gave towards her, as they didn't realize she was actually a human magically transformed into a frog. Nevertheless, Tiana accepts their apology and welcomes them into her restaurant, along with her other friends, acquaintances, and relations.

In one of the mini-games, which takes place during Tiana and Naveen's adventure as frogs, the trio serves as antagonists.


  • Co-director Ron Clements referred to the characters as the studios' versions of The Three Stooges, a popular comedy trio.
  • During the end credits, a cabin in the middle of the bayou can be seen, presumably belonging to the trio.
  • When Reggie, Darnell, and Two-Fingers flee the scene, the water trail they leave behind was modeled after Japanese animation, as a tribute to the acclaimed Japanese film director and animator, Hayao Miyazaki.
  • The scene where Two Fingers threw his knives at Tiana was among the scenes in the Action montage of Wonderful World of Animation.
