“When you say those things to me, it makes my heart ache.”
― Filbert, Wild World
Filbert (リッキー, 'Rikkī'?, Ricky) is a lazy squirrel villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name, like most of his species, comes from a type of nut. In this case, his name comes from an edible type of hazelnut. He has made an appearance in every game so far. He is the only lazy squirrel in the series so far. His initial catchphrase could possibly be a reference to what squirrels commonly say in cartoons.
