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

Trivia

"Vuk", the name of the main character, is the abbreviation of "Vadászom, utamból kotródj!", which in Hungarian means "I'm hunting, get out of my way!" In contrary to a famous misconception, it does not mean "My hunter, move off my way" - the word "vadászom" in Hungarian means both "my hunter" and "I'm hunting", in this context the obvious meaning is the second.

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie father fox is about to hunt food while mother fox takes care of the children. During the conversation the amount of children resting by mother fox changes from five (Vuk and four siblings) to six (Vuk and five siblings). See more »

Quotes

Young Vuk: Am I stupid, Karak?
Karak, old fox: No you are not Vuk. You just don't know enough, yet.

Alternate Versions

There are two English versions available. The first, harder to find version is a fairly faithful uncut dub of the original movie. More recent VHS releases sloppily cut the film by 12 minutes. Most notably, the dialog is toned down ("stupid" becomes "silly"), and all the death scenes removed. See more »

Answer for: Was this supposed to be like Hungary's version of The Glacier Fox?
4 June 2005 | by krifekSee 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 :)
