The Fox and the Hound is a 1981 animated movie produced by Disney. Tod (Keith Mitchell) is a young red fox who is orphaned when his mother dies from a hunter's gun. Seeing his plight, a friendly owl (Pearl Bailey), woodpecker (Paul Winchell) and finch (Richard Bakalyan) direct Tod to the home of Widow Tweed (Jeanette Nolan), a kindly woman with a soft spot for animals. As Tod slowly adjusts to his new home, he meets his neighbors, including a young coonhound named Copper (Corey Feldman). Since both young animals have lost their parents, they form a quick bond. The two grow up playing together happily and consider each other best friends. Copper's owner, Amos Slade (Jack Albertson), wants to raise him into a hunting dog. He separates the two friends. Months pass and Tod (Mickey Rooney) grows up, still wondering about his old friend. The next time he encounters Copper (Kurt Russell), however, it is clear that their relationship has changed. Although the two try to stay friends, tensions keep getting in the way. It soon becomes clear that their differences may drive Tod and Copper apart.

    I can't believe this marvelous masterpiece has less than 90% at Rotten Tomatoes.
  • It's a good movie, but I dislike the hunting stuff

    8.0
    Being a mother, I dislike the hunting in this movie and it's more of a guy's movie. But it's still good. It has a good friendship story to it. But I would like it better without the hunting.
  • The best film in the world!
