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.
August 11, 2011
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
August 10, 2011
A top-heavy double feature that provides an excellent representation of one of Disney's most underrated works.
August 10, 2011
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]

A heartwarming tale of friendship, but expect some peril.
November 21, 2009
Cloying and cutesy, a helpless callback to a number of truly classic movies that it couldn't hope to equal, let alone better.
September 3, 2008
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.

Importantly, the story relies on plot to carry it along and serves as a welcome reminder that audiences don't require a popular reference or in-joke every five minutes to sustain their interest.
January 28, 2007
It was a self-contained story that didn't try to change the world, and that was part of its charm.
January 10, 2007
A southern gothic--and a damn good one at that
January 3, 2007
...boasts an old-fashioned vibe that proves impossible to resist...
October 21, 2006
Disney may have gone off the rails for a few years after The Fox and the Hound, but this one still feels like a classic. Or at very least, a mini-classic.
October 13, 2006
An acceptable disc for one of Disney's best and most unheralded animated features.
