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.

This movie was the biggest Hungarian box-office hit in the 1980s. In 1981, it was also chosen as movie of the year. This is an especially notable achievement, as the jury of the Hungarian Film Week festival have previously dismissed animated works. Reportedly, a single critic convinced them to give the film a chance. See more »

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 »
I remember watching this when I was a kid. The English version is called The Little Fox and the main character is called Vick instead of Vuk. My cousin and I always would argue over who got to have the VHS at their house because we had to share it. It's a great movie for kids, especially if they like animals. I don't recall any stupid or annoying songs in this movie so that's a major plus if you have kids. You won't be listening to something like "let it go" for 10 hours a day for the next year, which isn't even a bad song until it grates on your nerves for so long. It's also nice to have that classic animation style rather than everything being forcibly represented in CGI.
