George the Fox-
Background information
Species: Fox
Gender: Male
Debut appearance: "Of Fox and Hounds"
7 December 1940
Created by:
Portrayed by: Mel Blanc

George is an animated cartoon character in the Merrie Melodies series. Fox has only one major appearance, in the short "Of Fox and Hounds".


Once, George met a dumb hound, Willoughby, who repeatedly asks George where the fox went, never suspecting that his "friend" George is the fox. Invariably, George the Fox tells Willoughby that the fox is on the other side of a rail fence, which is actually at the edge of a steep cliff. Willoughby's line, "Which way did he go, George? Which way did he go?" long ago became a catchphrase, as did "Thanks a lot, George, thanks a lot!"



  • George made a cameo in the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit with other animated characters when Eddie Valiant first came out of Maroon Studios.[1]
