One of Disney's less popular animated movies, for absolutely no good reason at all, because it's an excellent story, simply and expertly told. The box blurb rather confusingly compares it to Bambi, but this is a story which has rather more to do with how social conventions can divide friendships than the coming-of-age subtext which underlies the latter. The story is perhaps predictable--a fox cub and a puppy play together as friends, not realising that their places in the scheme of things dictate that they will grow up to become hunter and hunted. Of course, eventually they see the light and it all ends happily, but even so the story promotes the importance of tolerance. The master-stroke, however, is the gradually evolving realisation that the aggressive prejudices which we all stand to inherit from society are nothing more that the products of stupidity and manipulation, and should be treated with the contempt they deserve. Good stuff for kids and adults alike. Trivia buffs might like to know that this is one of the films Tim Burton worked on at Disney, his first job after graduating from college. --Roger Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my top five Disney films ever! 15 Nov 2003
I first saw this gem at my grandparent's house when I was about eight, and then several more times till I was 11. The story I find is lovable and gripping, and is just one of the most enjoyable and emotional Disney films of all time. It was made in 1981, only 22 years ago, but the animation still remains lovable to this day, as are the characters. Some scenes are sad and emotional, others are exciting, and some are just hilarious!! I am thinking about buying this now considering I haven't seen it for nearly five years! Though some say it is aimed for kids, I would say this is for anyone of any age. I may be 16 now, but that has not stopped me from enjoying this underrated masterpiece, and I'm sure many people around and above my age will agree with me. This film is has plenty of bright, uplifting scenes perfect for a rainy day. Scarily enough I cannot watch this film without weeping at least once!
You can never be too old to enjoy a Disney film. This is by far one of the best. If you want it, buy it. I know I will!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Disney Film 24 Feb 2009
Disney films have been the best part of childhood. Its always been a magical thing for me and i still get that lovely feeling everytime i watch one. Its about a fox called Tod and a Hound dog named Copper. They become best friends until Copper goes away to be trained as a hunting dog. If you haven't watched it i wont spoil it, but its great. It teachs children the value of friendship. There's great characters like Dinky and Boomer, two birds desperate to get the same caterpillar, and Chief, an old dog who is grumpy and miserable. altogether another classic Disney film!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Kids will love it! 24 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
A lovely story of a friendship tested and endured, showing kids that people can be friends no matter how differently the world perceives them or how different the paths of their lives are. My son has watched this video again and again over the years, from being a small child to now being a 'cool 10 yearold'. Though it's age prevents modern special effects, this is in no way detracts from the enjoyment of this story.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Shameful Release by Disney 23 Mar 2014
This is review is more in relation to the Blu Ray product released by Disney (rather the film story plot which is good but is dark in places) and what a shameful release it is!

Here's a quick run down on what you will be getting on this release.

1. No Digital Restored / Remastered film print so the colours will look very washed out and there is a very noticeable ripple like vertical line at the far right corner of the screen.

2. The ratio of the picture is 1:66 and not 1:78 (Unlike The Little Mermaid or the lion King) so basically it means there is small vertical borders that are only noticeable on a large screen TV.

3. A 5 minute information segment if a "Fox and a Hound" can be friends as the only extra on the Blu ray!

A real waste of a Blu Ray with one extra and NONE of the documentaries/ making from the DVD which is a real shame or even new material like interviews with Kurt Russell (yes the one who starred in the Horror classic the thing) John Lasseter, Tim Burton or John Musker!

Very sad this release is by Disney and one I can't recommend as a must have purchase at all!
