This was, yet another, one of those films I grew up watching however every time I come back to it I like it a little less. Now I do get it some people love this animation and while I do like it, it's just not breathtaking like some of the earlier Disney films such as "Pinocchio" or "Fantasia". I don't like it when companies take steps backward and that seems to be all the Disney company is doing during this time period.
The thing that I do enjoy about the film is the story of…
This is one of my earliest cinema memories as a child, so I was quite excited for a revisit with my own children. While it boasts some charming characters and an interesting examination on social issues in regards to behaviour moulding and stereotypes, it also has a rather predictable plot and some throwaway sequences. The last act is the clincher though, with a powerful fight sequence involving a bear that is one of Disney's finest moments. The Fox and the Hound has moments of greatness, but ends up being a second tier effort overall.
I've always wanted a fennec fox as a pet
This is a classic, I will always look back at this one fondly.
I do this thing called "Ghoul Summer" for my podcast where during summer, we review these really awful fake snuff movies and movies where people eat poop and stuff, so I wanted to watch a Disney movie I loved as a kid to bring my soul back to life, but it turns out this movie is almost as violent and heart-breaking as the ones I've been watching.
Wow. I was not expecting that from a movie about a fox and a hound, or from Disney's career in the early 80's. This movie delivers, and then some.
Every single shot of this movie is lovingly, meticulously crafted. The artwork, the animation, the staging. You really get the feeling of being transported somewhere, a place both small and wide, wonderful and dangerous.
In the riveting opening scene, we hear a fox on the run from hunter dogs. As it scurs across the landscape, it drops a bundle right before escaping our eyes. A deafening gunshot later, and our baby fox, Tod, is cast into the world an orphan. But old widow Tweed takes care of him, brings him up,…
The story of an unlikely friendship between a fox and a hound, both of whom are constantly reminded that nature intends for them to be enemies, 'The Fox and the Hound' is full of some very effective emotional moments and the scenes where young Tod and Copper become friends are legitimately very cute. But once the two of them grow older, their friendship begins to crumble and it's really interesting to watch how that plays out. Admittedly the film does kind of lose a bit of steam by the end of it but the main 'relationship' between its main characters is very much the heart of the film. And that's ultimately the best way to describe this film; it very…
You know you're a....cute little heart breaker.
I defiantly hyped this one up in my head. As a kid I had one of those 'ding turn the page' books for The fox and the Hound, which had sound snippets and images from the movie. Read/Listened to it almost every day but never managed to see it. No matter how many times I asked out video store, oh well it's Lady and the Tramp...again.
It's on Presto, I get a little excited. It was made in that period the 80s when Disney wasn't really caring, it almost had that quality of being animated before they recorded the voices. But I think it had more to do with I cannot handle animal cruelty, even if it a puppy tied…
well that was fucking depressing
This was much better than I was expecting. This movie must have come during a transitional phase for Disney. There are still watercolor matte backgrounds, and the wonderful animation techniques in the movie, but there are some cut backs that can be seen too. Having just watched The Little Mermaid last night, I can say that I much prefer the animation style here.
The story is sort of a Ben-Hur type story. Two creatures of different backgrounds or genealogies are raised together and become best friends. Then one leaves home for a while, and when he returns, he becomes the enemy of his friend.
The Fox and the Hound as youngsters were absolutely adorable, both in the way that they…
Decent animated flick, but I did have my issues with it.
First off, it's too short. It needed more time with the fox and the hound being friends when they were younger. They kind of meet, hang out twice and then grow old in a matter of minutes. Also, the reasoning for why they begin to feud seemed pretty lame too.
The music isn't really anything to write home about but the animation still holds up. Weird to hear Kurt Russell as a Disney character.
The scene when Tod is set free had me bawling like a baby though, as it nearly reminded me of when I had to give away my only pet once. So it was a bad hit the gut in the emotions for me.

- Slow as hell, and i don't know how i paid attention to it all when i was younger but it still hits me as hard as it did back then.
Utterly heartwarming, and heartbreaking too.
Total Run Time of less than 90 minutes. Have I seen them all? Yes, but that doesn't mean I'll vouch…
