The Foxbusters is a British animated series that ran for 26 episodes in 1999. The series was created by Cosgrove Hall Films, who is best known for the Danger Mouse series. It featured Whoopi Goldberg as the voice of Ransome.
The series was loosely adapted from The Fox Busters, by Dick King-Smith; the book was a children's best-seller in the UK.
There are similarities between The Foxbusters and the movie Chicken Run (2000), but they are significantly different stories.
The chickens of Foxearth Farm are in danger from the hungry fox, King Voracious, and his gang. Coming to their rescue are The Foxbusters - Ransome, Sims, and Jeffries. Finding ways to take to the skies, these three hens are always alert and ready to drive off the foxes.
The series won the British Animation Award for Best Children's Series, and the BAFTA award (the UK equivalent of an Emmy) for Best Children's Series, both in 2000.
