The Fox and the Hound is a likeable, charming, unassuming effort that manages to transcend its thin, predictable plot.

Against all odds, a tear or two is effectively jerked, and there was enough skill on display to encourage some hope for the new generation of Disney animators, who made their debut here.
One of the more homely Disney animated features.
The bottom line, I suppose, is: Will kids like this movie? And the answer is, sure, I think so.
This is a pretty, relentlessly cheery, old-fashioned sort of Disney cartoon feature, chock-full of bouncy songs of an upbeatness that is stickier than Krazy-Glue and played by animals more anthropomorphic than the humans that occasionally appear.
It's just really lame.
The Fox and the Hound is a flawed, but effective kids' flick.
not one of the studio's best efforts, but nonetheless it remains a fascinating product of an era of upheaval as well as a meaningful statement about the nature of prejudice
A work of both learned, assured poise and triumphant freshman determination, not far away from other benchmark-status works like Snow White or Pixar's Toy Story.
Sweet but a bit dull...Overall, the picture is good-hearted and colorful, with an ending that carries a nice touch of ambiguity about the tussle of nature and nurture. [Blu-ray]
Cloying and cutesy, a helpless callback to a number of truly classic movies that it couldn't hope to equal, let alone better.
All charmingness aside, this cute but rather thinly plotted yarn exposes the cracks that were present in the pre-renaissance Disney empire.
Wonderful entertainment for both kids and their parents.
The animation job is exceptional, but the songs are not that great and the simple story, while solid, suffers a bit from the same problems found in most of the movies made by the studio in the 1970s, especially how it feels rather perfunctory and watered down for children.
Doing what Disney has always done best, "The Fox and the Hound" tells real human emotions through that of something else. In this instance, tested friendships told through the perspective of animals. As a baby fox and a puppy meet in the woods outside of their farm houses, they begin to bond, right before the puppy is taken away for a season to become a hunter. Upon returning, he no longer has the same emotions. Meeting new friends and having to accept that you just need to let old friends go is really what the underlying tone is here. That ideal is magnificent for kids and the fact that most adults showing their kids this film have most likely gone through this, is really something special. There is something in this film for all ages. Fantastic from start to finish, this is a brilliantly written children's film that is also great for adults. I love "The Fox and the Hound!"
An endearing and delightful 83 minute movie with lovable characters that will stick with you longer after the credits roll. It's a completely predictable storyline, but one made with the love and craft that only old school Disney can produce. Kids will absolutely love it, while adults will revel in the nostalgia and feel all warm inside.
what you've gt to do to come to a verdict is really to think about whether you think the fox and the hound will entertain kids, was it well drawn and was it heartmwarming? My verdict to all 3, yes.
