Donbe Dragonball and Dr. Slump
Fauntleroy Fox The Fox and the Crow A refined but gullible sort. Created in 1941 by Columbia Pictures.
Foxy Merrie Melodies Foxy was the star of the first Merrie Melodies cartoons Ising directed for producer Leon Schlesinger. (Ising had already helped his partner Hugh Harman create another series, titled Looney Tunes, with the character Bosko.) Foxy's first appearance on screen was in August 1931 in "Lady, Play Your Mandolin!". This old-western themed short features Foxy developing affection for the tavern singer who would become his girlfriend.

Foxy and his then-nameless girlfriend would appear in another cartoon that same year: "Smile, Darn Ya, Smile!" (September 5, 1931), a musical set on a trolley. The plot bares some similarities to Trolley Troubles, a 1928 Oswald Rabbit cartoon which Harman and Ising contributed on. This also marks the first time Foxy's name was mentioned.

Foulfellow Pinocchio (film) In the 1940 Disney film Pinocchio, the fox and the cat are given the names "Honest" John Worthington Foulfellow (voiced by Walter Catlett) and Gideon (whose three hiccups in the film were provided by Mel Blanc). The pair differ from their original counterparts in the Collodi novel in a number of ways. They do not feign disability, and it is they who tempt Pinocchio to go to Mangiafuoco's theatre (named Stromboli in the film) and coax him into going to Pleasure Island.
Freddy Fox Peppa Pig One of Peppa's friends who debuted in the season 3 episode of the same name. He has a very strong nose, similar to Gaston from Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom, who is another character created by Astley Baker Davies. He is voiced by Max Miller.
King Voracious Foxbusters Leader of the foxes, Voracious is a large, handsome and charismatic red fox who is a somewhat unstable character.

Once the viewer manages to yell his name in sight, he will jump out of his hiding place and creep towards Dora and Boots to try to swipe their stuff. He can be stopped by Dora, Boots and the viewer saying "Swiper, no swiping!" thrice, upon which after he snaps his fingers with his catchphrase, "Oh, man!" before escaping. However, he has been shown to expose his heroic side in some episodes like "Swiper the Explorer", where he assists Dora and Boots in returning a baby fox to its parents. He is voiced by Marc Weiner, who is best known for hosting the now-cancelled Weinerville.
