Fosse McDonald

Fosse McDonald is a male student at South Park Elementary who was often seen in the early seasons with Bill Allen. Similar to Beavis and Butthead, Fosse often calls things "gay" followed by laughing in a deep voice.


Fosse wears a purple shirt similar to Terrance Mephesto's, except with many more stripes along with black suspenders. He also wears black pants and matching gloves. His hair is black but stringy, meaning it could be a different color if it was full. He had thick eyebrows during the first four seasons, but was later redesigned to have regular ones. He also seems to have bigger eyes than other children.

Fosse is a bully, often laughing at things and people (in a similar matter as Beavis and Butthead). In addition, he thinks everything is gay; on one occasion Fosse even said "we're gay", which shows he thinks everything is gay. Due to his seeming stupidity, it appears he did not advance to the fourth grade. He is never seen in the fourth-grade classroom, but is in the halls, and is only seen in the hallway and playground after the second season. His voice appears to sound almost the same as Bill Allen's. He was seen in "Lil' Crime Stoppers" when the boys discovered he, along with Bill, had stolen Sarah Peterson's doll. They then played along and were "shot" in the game; however, they were just playing a game and did not die. Fosse seems to be one of the more naive children in the school along with Bill, Butters, Jason, and DogPoo. In the episode "It's a Jersey Thing", he is seen as part of Cartman's group to help capture and lock up Kyle. It seems that unlike most other kids, (Craig, Tolkien, Jimmy Valmer) who are more aware of Cartman's manipulating methods, Fosse still has not wised up to it and so that is why Cartman would most likely seek him out for help.



Bill and Fosse's fathers.

Due to Fosse's quick phasing out from the series, his family was never officially seen. In the episode "Damien", two older men are seen in the bar after Jesus storms out, saying "This show's gay" followed by "Yeah, gay" in the similar style to Bill and Fosse, while also having the same face and clothes but adult bodies. In the commentary of the episode it was revealed that these two characters were indeed Bill and Fosse's parents.

Video Games[]

South Park: The Stick of Truth[]

Fosse is a minor character in the game. He participates in the attack on South Park Elementary and Clyde's fortress alongside the player. He is seen being attacked by three elves, and he befriends the player after he saves them.

Originally, he and Bill were going to play a bigger role, appearing as enemies in Kyle's Treehouse Level, where the New Kid has to fight them twice (first when they are holding Wendy hostage and later when they are guarding one of the paths). This incomplete level is playable in some earlier builds of the game.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole[]

Fosse can be found with Bill at the Raisins bar. When interacted with, Fosse says, "Sorry, you're not my type" with regards to the player, Bill then responds with, "Yeah, he's taken", referring to Fosse. This could be seen as confirmation that Bill and Fosse are (somewhat ironically) in a relationship with one another; or it may simply be seen as the duo engaging in another example of their "that's gay" routine.

The New Kid can get a selfie with him if they have at least one active speedster ability.




  • Fosse was a part of Cartman's entourage to eliminate Kyle in "It's a Jersey Thing". Although he does not speak, it is arguably his first major appearance since "Lil' Crime Stoppers".
  • Bill and Fosse are referred to by Matt and Trey within the scripts and commentaries as 'the Nerds', 'the Bullies' and the 'That's Gay Kids' - they actually rarely use the duo's real names.
  • Outside of "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig" Fosse is never seen in the classroom seats at the same time as Bill - Bill is often there into the third season, and Fosse would occasionally reappear. Bill once appeared in 4th Grade Classroom B, but Fosse did not appear with him.
  • Fosse's original voice had a different pitch in the first season. In the second, third and seventh seasons, his voice is much deeper and sounds almost identical to Bill's. He also has a deep voice akin to Bill's in "An Elephant Makes Love to a Pig", though in "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride" and "Pinkeye" it is at its original pitch.
  • In "T.M.I.", his name is revealed on the chart as Fosse McDonald.
  • Fosse's hair looks similar to the Peanuts character Pig Pen's hair.
