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.
It was originally scheduled to be released on Christmas Day of 1980 before Don Bluth and his colleagues left Walt Disney Productions, so the film's premiere was re-scheduled to July 1981. See more »

Tod, that Copper is going to come back a hunting dog, a real killer.
Oh no, not my friend Copper. He won't ever change.
I hope you're right.
And we'll keep on being friends forever. Right, Big Mama?
Darling, forever is a long, long time, and time has a way of changing things.

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).
