3rd Grade Female Aardvark is a 3rd grade student in Miss Sweetwater's class at Lakewood Elementary School.

In "Little Miss Meanie," her name is revealed to either be Philomena Peckensniff or Griselda Dorffman.

Physical appearance

As she appears in Season 3

The 3rd Grade Female Aardvark is an aardvark with a brown complexion. She wears a solid red short-sleeved turtleneck, long grayish-black pants, long pink socks, and red and white sneakers. She has long dark brown hair worn in pigtails, which are held by light yellow hairbands.

She wears a red maillot in the episode "D.W. Swims with the Fishes." During the summertime she sometimes wears black shorts, but still wears the same shirt and sneakers. In the episode "The Pride of Lakewood," she wore the new sports uniform the school received.

In "The Hallway Minotaur," she wears an orange long-sleeved collared shirt, brown hairbands, light pink socks, and orange and white sneakers.


Her personality is not known, but looking at the episodes she has appeared in, she is friendly to the other characters and is seen chatting with her in the background with most of the other background characters. She has also made some appearances outside of school, including the Little Miss Crocus pageant.

She has been seen reading Henry Skreever books and wearing Scare-Your-Pants-Off Club T-shirts, which suggests she may be a fan of both series. She also has been seen participating in sports, including swimming and the Lakewood track team.




  • This character spoke in the episodes "Arthur's Substitute Teacher Trouble," "Arthur's Dummy Disaster," and "The Hallway Minotaur."
  • She may also have a younger sister at the Elwood Community Preschool named Amanda. If this is true, then her mother is also Mrs. Hulser.
    • However, it's revealed in the episode "Little Miss Meanie" that her last name is either "Peckensniff" or "Dorffman", while Amanda's last name is known to be "Hulser".
  • She cannot be Unknown Female Aardvark (Number 7) as the normal design of this character was seen in the same episode.
  • She entered the "Little Miss Crocus" beauty pageant in the episode "Little Miss Meanie."
  • She has some sort of food allergy or restrictions because she was seen sitting at the special foods table.
