Storyline

It's morning in the English countryside and time for the gentry to participate in their favorite sport: the fox hunt. The eccentric gentlemen come in all shapes and sizes, the fat ones putting the greatest strain on the horses. The craziest things happen to the monocled hunters. One even gets knocked off his horse when it jumps over a brick wall. He shoots straight up into the air and, thanks to a parachute hidden in his clothes, makes a gentle landing. But instead of the ground, he lands on a cow. Upset by her unwanted passenger, she takes off at top speed, finally dumping him in a mud puddle, where he lands on a pig and continues his wacky ride. Meanwhile, the poor fox finally gets trapped in a hollow log. Dogs to the left of him, dogs to the right! Luckily, the beleaguered creature gets help from a certain powerful, and pungent, friend.

Great for kids but not among the best in the series.
18 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Although Disney also brought out another short in 1938 by the same name, it was not a remake but a Goofy cartoon. This 1931 example is one of the studio's Silly Symphonies--a cartoon short that consists of lots of music and characters cavorting about all set to this music. Unlike most in the series, this one depicts people and not just animals or anamorphic objects. Now considering that the topic is the politically incorrect fox hunt, my bet is that many will be offended by a film making such 'sport' look fun. My feelings are regardless of the cruelty of the sport, the cartoon just isn't a shining example of the art of Disney. While the backgrounds are nice, the dogs and hunters are drawn very cartoony--much more than in other films in the series. This just makes it all see pretty cheap by comparison with the other Symphonies. Overall, it's not a terrible film but it certainly isn't among their best--but it also has lots of humor that younger audience members will enjoy--making one of the better films in the series for kids.
