In this midquel to The Fox and the Hound (1981), Copper the hound dog, here still just a pup, joins a canine music band, and spends less and less time with his best friend Todd the fox. Is their friendship in danger?
The kingdom of Atlantica where music is forbidden, the youngest daughter of King Triton, named Ariel, discovers her love to an underground music club and sets off to a daring adventure to bring restoration of music back to Atlantica.
Samuel E. Wright,
In this cheap, unnecessary sequel of the original Fox and the Hound, Tod and Copper are drawn toward a local carnival. Among these attractions is a group of singing dogs, who hope one day make it to the Grand Ol' Opry. Along the way, Tod and Coppers' friendship is starting to get questioned because they're spending so much time away from each other. Hopefully, they'll make amends before going through this phase a second time.
Actually, this film was more fun to watch than the original, which was very slow at times. This new feature, Fox and the Hound 2, with the exception of one very clunker-song, "Hound Dudes" was very good. It deserved a theatrical release, really, instead of the being dumped into the direct-to-video market.
Reba McEntire was just as funny in this film as she was playing Heather Gummer, the gun-crazy wife of Burt Gummer in Tremmors. And Jeff Foxworthy (Lyle) did a good job as well. Buy this movie and add it to your Disney collection. It's much better than all those other "part two's" we've been made to suffer through from Disney (Lady/Tramp2, Hunchback2, Mermaid2, and so on...)
