Donald controls the hounds (or maybe they control him), and Goofy is riding on Horace Horsecollar, as the fox outwits both of them. Some other Disney characters are seen briefly in the hunting party at the end.

Storyline

A monocle-wearing Goofy and a bugle-bearing Donald Duck are two unlikely members of the English gentry engaging in their favorite sport: the fox hunt. The ever-frustrated Donald is burdened with a pack of unruly hounds, while Goofy is saddled (so to speak) with a shy horse, who is too timid to jump over a hedge. Goofy has to show him how to do it himself. Meanwhile, the quarry of the hunt proves to be wilier than your average fox. Eventually, Donald thinks he has the fox trapped, but the clever little beast manages to pull a rather stinky switcheroo on the overconfident duck. Written by J. Spurlin

Beautifully animated and very funny
18 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am also against fox hunting, but this didn't stop me from watching and loving 1938's The Fox Hunt. A cartoon, also from Disney, but from 1931 of the same name is also worth watching for its great gags but I found 1938 better for the quality of the animation and the stronger collection of characters. The animation is really great, not only is it very colourful and smooth but it also has much detail in the backgrounds. The music has Disney's usual character and energy and does well again in enhancing the action. The gags come by fast and are very funny, the best being with Donald as his actions constantly backfires, while both characters are delightful. Donald is marginally more effectively used of the two, he has fun interactions with both the fox( blowing the trumpet trying to get the fox out of the ground) and the hounds(getting himself in a knot with them getting easily temperamental at trying to control them). Goofy's role is smaller, but his likability and clumsiness ensures that he is memorable in his instructional-like role. There are also pleasing appearances from Mickey, Clarabelle, Horace, Minnie and Clara, almost like the whole gang together but with varying degrees of screen time, while the voice work is impeccable. On the whole, very enjoyable indeed, the animation is very well done and the gags all work. 9/10 Bethany Cox
