In this midquel to The Fox and the Hound (1981), Copper the hound dog, here still just a pup, joins a canine music band, and spends less and less time with his best friend Tod the fox. Is their friendship in danger?
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.
A young fox named Tod is taken in by an old woman after his mother is killed by a hunter. Full of mischief, Young Tod befriends Copper, a hound dog pup. As they grow up, however, their friendship becomes endangered by what they have become; Copper is a hunting dog, and Tod is his prey. Written by

An uncredited Tim Burton did the character animation for the charterer Vixey. She was so different from the dark and Gothic-loving Burton's style that he initially only animated her with distant shots; the closeup of her was done when Burton "grew to like her." See more »

Oh, Big Mama, I know Copper would never track on me down. Why, Copper, he's my very best friend.
Ho-ho, your best friend! Now Copper's gonna do what he's been told. Supposed to chase the little fox in the old fox hole. And along comes the hunter with a buckshot load.

You mean Copper is gonna be my enemy?

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).
