A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.
Spoiled by their upbringing with no idea what wild life is really like, four animals from New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar, among a bunch of merry lemurs
In the middle of her family's move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and monsters; where humans are changed into animals; and a bathhouse for these creatures.
Vuk, the little fox lives happily among his many siblings in their parents' home. As he is livelier and snappier than the others, one day he wanders into the forest alone. As soon as he arrives home, he discovers that his whole family has disappeared. Only later, he comes to know that the responsible are the feared humans, the hunters (called among animals the 'bare-skins'). But luckily for Vuk, his old uncle Karak starts to patronize him, and the seasoned elder brings Vuk up to be the most cunning and successful fox in the forest. Written by
"Vuk" - the name of the main character of the film - is the abbreviation of "Vadászom, utamból kotródj!" which in Hungarian means "I'm hunting, get out of my way!" (Any not "My hunter, move off my way - "vadászom" in Hungarian means both "my hunter" and "I'm hunting", in this context the obvious meaning is the second) See more »
This was my absolute favorite movie as a kid. Foxes were always my favorite animals, and I believe this movie was what started that. This had to be one of the first movies I saw because I watched it for years and years after that. It still brings back many fond memories. I can't quite put my finger on the reason why I liked it so much, but I don't really care to anyways. I liked it then, and I still like it now.
Watching it now as an adult I can see the juvenile aspects of the film, as well as the non-North American influence. The animation is very unique (almost like anime, but completely different). This isn't a flaw, but instead a part of the film that makes it that much better. The dialogue is almost humorous in that it is very juvenile, but I can't bring myself to criticize this film. As a children's movie in the early 90's it was utterly flawless, but today's kids are getting smarter and probably wouldn't appreciate a film like this (unless they were very young).
I still have the old VHS copy of the movie, but would like to find and purchase a newer copy so that someday my kids could enjoy it as well. They need to re-release it as a classic on DVD. I'll bet many people could appreciate something like that.
If you've never seen this film, find somebody who owns an old VHS copy and watch it with your young children. You'll find that it is a welcomed escape from some of the distasteful modern cartoons they put out these days. I can't say everybody who watches it will enjoy it simply because people have different tastes. But you will have to admit that it is unique in a good way.
