    Loved this movie as a child. Everytime I watched the old lady give Tod away, I cried and cried, because it was so unfair, and the man was such a prejudiced a-hole haha.

    The movie touches on people's differences, and their ability to defy how people expect them to act. It is disappointing however that in the end, they pretty much decide they are too different to live in the same 'world'.

    Though an important transitional movie for Disney, The Fox and the Hound is wayyyy too much like Bambi (mother killed by hunter, half the movie as kids and the other as adults, woodland friends, the courtship, the climax involving at least some fire, the ending with animals sitting on a hill) for it to see particularly original. It can't hide its derivative nature behind the book it's based on, because the novel is more of a Watership Down than classic Disney. That, and the Looney Tunes gags afforded the bird characters (out of place) make it a middling animated film despite it being the first (or at least early) work of many name animators, including Tim Burton, John Lasseter and Brad Bird, as the Nine Old Men responsible for Disney's golden age retired, and Don Bluth took his team out of there to work on personal projects. The animation is still of a piece, and frequently detailed and gorgeous, so it doesn't FEEL like a troubled production. But when you know what was happening behind the scenes, you can sort of imagine what the points of contention were, because they're likely your own. 2 days 10 hours ago
