“Honest” John Worthington Foulfellow is a fictional character in the 1940 Disney animated film, Pinocchio. He was voiced by actor Walter Catlett. He is a sly and cunning anthropomorphic fox who is known for his dishonest ways and schemes. Along with his sidekick, Gideon, he cons people into buying worthless goods or swindling them out of their money.

In the film, “Honest” John first encounters Pinocchio when he is still a puppet and offers to take him to Stromboli, a puppeteer who can make him a famous actor. However, this is just a ploy to earn money from Pinocchio’s performances. Later on, “Honest” John and Gideon trick Pinocchio again by convincing him to go to Pleasure Island, a place where boys can do whatever they want without consequences. However, Pleasure Island is actually a trap where boys are transformed into donkeys and sold into labor.

Despite his name, “Honest” John is far from honest and is a classic example of a con artist. He is not above lying, cheating, or stealing to get what he wants. Nevertheless, his character has become a memorable and iconic part of the Pinocchio film and is often cited as one of the great Disney villains.
