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
This is a classic, I will always look back at this one fondly.
I've always wanted a fennec fox as a pet
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.
The Rescuers had turned out to be a pretty decent hit for Disney and at the time they’d gotten plaudits for their work, but it seems clear that there were quite a few people internally at Disney who weren’t as forgiving and it would greatly affect their follow-up The Fox and the Hound. There had been a sort of civil war brewing between Disney’s old guard (who were really close to retireing) and the younger animators (who thought Disney needed to update). These tensions reached their peak during the making of The Fox and the Hound and resulted in the most vocal of the younger (and “younger” is a relative term here, many of them were in their 40s) animators,…
Watching this for the first time in nearly eight years, I noticed a few creaks here and there. The well-detailed animation has a couple of clunky moments in the first half, and pretty much every song seems flat save for the exception of "Best Of Friends." But what became more readily apparent were the elements that did hold up: primarily the voice cast and the core friendship. From Willy Wonka's Jack Albertson to Tigger himself Paul Winchell, the cast is pitch perfect: delivering genuine performances that manage to work miracles with something as simple as a sigh. Kurt Russell's Copper and Mickey Rooney's Todd are the especial golden boys here and convey a lifetime of drifting companionship beautifully within the…

The Fox and the Hound seems to be the 80's answer to Bambi. And while there's no scene in Fox and the Hound that equals Bambi's mother's death, it still comes off pretty strong. The 80's was an interesting time for Disney. They were trying a number of different things after the shaky outcome of the 70's.
The Fox and the Hound is one of the most underrated from that time. It, again similar to Bambi, starts light and cute and later gets gritty and suspenseful. But with Bambi, it was the title character with all the development. Here it's both Copper and Tod, the titular fox and the hound. It's a somber story about how a friendship between two…
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?
For some reason humans actually think that their opinions on movies about animals, their experiences, and their relationships with other…
