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 inspepearable 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 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 mets when dropped off in the Forest, whilst 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 »
Amos Slade, that temper of yours is going to get you into a lot of trouble someday.
[turns red in the face]
Temper? Temper? Woman, you ain't seen my temper! If I ever catch that fox in my property again, I'll blast him, and next time I won't miss!

This has got to be one of the best Disney films out there!! I can't believe its not rated at least a 7!! I mean, this was probably the only movie I could stand watching with my mother as a kid. We would both cry our eyes out no matter how many times wed seen it. This is one of the few movies that really shows the villain's in a different light. Most kids movies are afraid to show that the bad guys aren't ALL bad. This movie at least gave the villain a heart. The characters in this movie are amazing. They have such real human traits. This movie shows the importance of friendship and that things are going to change as you get older. That is one of the hardest lessons to learn but one of the most important. Walt wasn't afraid to show it in this one and I respect him for that. If you're gunna take your kid to a movie make it The Fox and the Hound.
