Storyline

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 mocii

Answer for: Was this supposed to be like Hungary's version of The Glacier Fox?
4 June 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I have seen above post just now, and even it is an old comment, I must react. The original story of Vuk the fox has been written by a Hungarian author, István Fekete in the 1950's. The book became very popular, so the animation has been created 1981. The author died in 1970, so the answer for the question: was The Glacier Fox the story he used, is NO.

The story itself is very sweet, enjoyable for kids and for adults as well. Nowdays it is even recommended book for elementary school children, so if you find the book version, don't hesitate to buy it. For smaller kids the comic book is available also. Have fun with the book or VHS/DVD as well :)
