I found in an old box these animal characters.

They are all LEGO original (the logo is present on all their parts).

They are 25, maybe 30, years old. I think is the Fabuland series. I wonder if there is any way to discover how many they were and if there is any way to complete the collection.

If you were to collect one of every animal type (excluding colour variations) you would at the very least need 20 Fabuland Figures:

  • Bear/Panda/Racoon
  • Bird
  • Bunny
  • Cat
  • Cow
  • Crocodile
  • Bulldog
  • Dog
  • Poodle
  • Elephant
  • Fox
  • Goat
  • Hippo
  • Horse
  • Lamb
  • Lion
  • Mouse
  • Monkey
  • Pig
  • Walrus

There are variations between figures in the copyright markings on the back of the legs, face printing between similar figures. In addition to the standard figures there are 72 variations of Fabuland Keychains.

  • Wow. That's great. I didn't know Fabuland.net existed. – jncraton Apr 13 '17 at 19:46
  • Fabuland.net seems the most completed one. Your answer is the best one. Thank you! – jonnyjava.net Apr 13 '17 at 21:25
  • bear, panda and racoon are really just color variations, whereas the dogs are actually different shapes. for the smallest complete set, i'd rather go with different shapes, and throw the bears into one category. – eMBee Oct 14 at 5:22

You can purchase these on Bricklink as well in order to complete your collection.

The Fabuland figures and sets were produced between 1979 and 1989. According to the BrickLink Catalog - which has the most comprehensive list of LEGO minifigures ever released - there are 93 Fabuland characters. Some of these however are slight variations (i.e. same animal, different color torso/legs/arms). You can find the full list here: List of LEGO Fabuland Figures

While some of the Fabuland characters can still be found fairly easily, others are very rare. Also, as the figures are so old, it can be difficult to find them in good condition. As demonstrated by the crow in the last row of your picture, the facial printing didn't stand up well to regular play. The hip and arm joints can also get very loose if the figures were played with regularly.
