Movie Info

After his mother is killed, Tod the fox (Mickey Rooney) is taken in by the kindly Widow Tweed (Jeanette Nolan). He soon befriends the neighbor's new hound dog, Copper (Kurt Russell). The two are inseparable, but their friendship is hampered by their masters and by the fact that they are, by nature, enemies. They grow apart as they grow older; Copper has become a strong hunting dog and Tod a wild fox. The pair must overcome their inherent differences in order to salvage their friendship.

Audience Reviews for The Fox and the Hound

    A quite fresh feel for Disney about friendship that's heartbreaking but still great fun and funny in places.

    The plot is indeed a bit derivative from Bambi, but it manages to take the friendship-turned-rivalry onto a charming to chaotic adventure.

    Disney's The Fox and the Hound is a fun family film that's full of adventure. It's the story of a fox cup named Todd and a hound dog pup named Cooper who form an unlikely friendship, which is put to the ultimate test when Cooper is trained up to be a hunting dog. Some impressive voice talent has been assembled for this film, including Mickey Rooney, Kurt Russell, Sandy Duncan, and Corey Feldman, who all do good work. However, and animation isn't too sharp and lacks the vibrancy of previous Disney films. And, the songs aren't that catchy or inspiring. There's a little bit of that classic Disney magic to The Fox and the Hound, but it's not one of their top tier films.

    When I was a kid, me and my grampa would watch this all the time, and its still great. The story is great and is a wonderfil tale of love and friendship. A classic Disney film.
