The fun and adventure begin when a lonely widow adopts an orphaned fox cub named Tod. The mischievous fox soon meets up with Copper, an adorable hound puppy. As the innocent pair grow up together in the forest, they become inseparable friends. But the day soon arrives when their friendship is put to the ultimate test!
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.

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…
they really tried to make this as Straight™ as they could but...it's gay as hell!! they're gay canines!! gaynines?? god bless
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.
One of the most under-rated Disney animated films ever.
This movie is so beautiful and hurts so much
The internet bandies this about as OMG WUTTA TEARJERKER but it's kinda hilarious how fucking thick they lay that shit on with the songs and stuff! Mickey Rooney as the adult fox doesn't help. "An abandoned fox... I could play that!"
Gotta love Kurt Russell as the five-line-havin' adult dog. Let's scuffle, Chief! The animals were cute right up until DEVIL BEAR. I mean it was just minding its business until they pointed a shotgun in its face! Bad show, Disney!
The way the lady fox is written is hilariously retrograde! All she does is look pretty and flutter her eyelashes and when Tod and Vixy's lair is threatened, all she does is go I'M SCARED TODD!!! You're a fox goddammit! Growl, at least! C'mon Disney, were we still here in 1981?
The old widow lady made it seem so easy to domesticate a fox.
Acting (Voice): 8/10
- Really cute and honest message
- The ending felt lazy and predictable
- Loved the friendship between Todd and Copper
- Kurt Russell really doesn't sound like Kurt Russell
- Animation is amazing
- Underrated Disney classic
Box office $ 63.5 million
animation, fantastic voice acting and lovable characters and before all the PC nonsense that bogs down most newer Disney productions. This is Disney at its best, much better than the likes of Hunchback, Tarzan, Pochonatas, Hercules, Aladdin etc. If you haven't seen this one, give it a try, you'll be in for a pleasant surprise!
Apparently, I rewatched this mere days before the 35th anniversary of its release. I got a thing for coincidence and timing, that's what I'll chalk it up to for now.
My dad's favorite Disney, by an overwhelming long shot. The themes of friendship, sacrifice, abandonment, and growing up remain potent to this day. I will also maintain the bear in this movie is thoroughly more terrifying and realistic-feeling than the one in The Revenant.
I explained to my co-viewer the Cliff's Notes of the novel it's based on. She claims the film itself was too sad, but was then utterly mortified by the ending of the novel. Adaptation win.
Who said I wasn't an animation fan? To tell the truth, I haven't been into it as much in recent…
