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.
I agree with every comment that has been made stating that The Fox and the Hound 2 was made in poor taste, and that the story was far inferior to the original. What is happening to our culture? When will the bastardization of classic stories that convey cherished themes and morals ever stop? In my opinion, Disney will never be what it used to be, and that is sad. What an incredible loss. If we, as Americans, want to experience anything of real value in literature and storytelling in this day and age, we have to park ourselves in the culture we created thirty years ago and prior and remain stuck there, because almost everything Disney or Hollywood creates now depicts violence, blatant sex and sexual themes, and as another comment said "themes of petty jealousy and popularity." What a disgrace.
