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

The last VHS in the "Walt Disney Classics" line. Starting with the video release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), the home video releases were the "Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection". See more »
At the start of the Winter Hunting scene, Copper can be seen hopping about in the snow making his own trail. In the immediate close up, he is suddenly hopping in Amos' footsteps and his previously made trail has gone. See more »
Listen good, Tod, 'cause it's either education or elimination.

One of Disney's finest motion pictures, extremely underrated and forgotten to a pulp. Kurt Russell, Mickey Rooney and even Corey Feldman all give their talent to this story of a fox and a hound who become friends, only to turn on themselves in later years because they are expected to. Not only is the film engaging, but it also has a metaphorical story going on. I understand it is supposed to represent humans and racism, but apart from the preachiness of it all the film is quite good on the level of a whole. A definite must-see. The ending is bittersweet and at many times during the film you will actually start to feel for these creatures. On a sidenote, I used to have a dog just like the one in this movie. It was just like the one in this film.
