With the help of a smooth talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country.
When an adopted fox and a to-be hunting hound become inseparable friends as pups, their friendship grows stronger every day in their "childhood." But as they grow older, they grow farther and farther apart, to the day when the two old comrades' bond is put to the ultimate test.
John McIntire and his wife Jeanette Nolan, much like The Rescuers (1977) both voiced characters in the film. McIntire voiced the grumpy badger that Tod meets when dropped off in the forest, while Nolan voiced Tod's human caretaker, widow Tweed. See more »
After we first see Big Mamma come out of her tree, we see a fox running towards a fence. Behind it on a clothesline, you can see a pair of blue pants hanging. In the next shot it is a blue sheet. See more »
Hold on a second: This isn't even rated a 7 on the IMDB?!
This has got to be one of the most underappreciated Disney classics yet. The Fox and the Hound is probably the most heartwarming Disney film yet. It mixes humor, action, and romance as well as any other Disney film, except for a select few such as Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, or Tarzan. Nevertheless, I cannot believe this is rated only a 6.6. Several Disney films that are rated above this movie come nowhere near close to it in quality (i.e. Snow White, Bambi, Sleeping Beauty, etc...). I cannot comprehend how it is rated so low...9/10 (Ranks right up there with the likes of Robin Hood and Pinocchio).
