(Above Movie Clip-The Fox And The Hound "Breakfast")The Fox and The Hound, Disney’s 24th animated feature released in 1981, marked a “changing of the guard” from the legendary “nine old men,” including Wolfgang Reitherman, Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, who had joined the studio its very early days and worked closely with Walt Disney to develop Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the very first animated feature, then went on to create timeless classics such as Cinderella,Bambi and Lady and the Tramp.
(Above Movie Clip-The Fox And The Hound II "Joining The Band")The voice talent on The Fox and the Hound was also a mix of old and new Hollywood with veterans such as Mickey Rooney (National Velvet, The Black Stallion), Pearl Bailey (Porgy and Bess) and Pat Buttram (TV’s “Green Acres”) joining up-and-coming stars Kurt Russell (Escape From New York, Miracle) and Corey Feldman (Stand By Me, The Lost Boys).
In 2006, Copper, Tod and their friends were brought back for The Fox and the Hound 2, featuring the vocal talents of Patrick Swayze (Ghost, Dirty Dancing), Reba McEntire (TV’s “Reba”), Lucas Grabeel (Disney Channel’s “High School Musical” franchise) and Trisha Yearwood (country music singer).

The Fox and the Hound 30th Anniversary SynopsisWhen Tod, an orphaned fox cub meets Copper, a coonhound puppy, they make a pledge to be lifelong friends, not realizing that Copper is being groomed to hunt wild animals, including foxes. Copper spends the winter with his owner, Slade, and an older dog, Chief, tracking animals at a remote cabin. When they return, a lonely Tod eagerly greets his old playmate but is stunned when a reluctant Copper joins Slade and Chief to chase Tod through the forest. During the pursuit, Tod escapes but Chief is seriously injured. Seeking revenge, Copper hunts down Tod only to find himself confronting an even bigger enemy, which he and Tod must face together.

The Fox and the Hound 2 SynopsisIn The Fox and the Hound 2, music takes centerstage as Tod contemplates joining up with “The Singin’ Strays,” a group of harmonizing dogs appearing at the local county fair but dreaming of hitting the big time at the Grand OleOpry. While Tod does his best to fit in with his new friends, Copper finds himself relegated to “roadie,” a position he begins to resent. With the encouragement of Dixie, the “diva” of “The Singin” Strays,” Copper manages to sabotage an important audition. The next day, their differences forgotten, Copper and Tod team up and, using Copper’s superior tracking skills, they locate the Grand Ole Opry talent scout who signs “The Singin’ Strays” (minus Tod, who chooses his friendship with Copper over fame) on the spot.
The Fox And The Hound was one of my favorite Disney movies as a child, so I was thrilled to sit down to this Classic with the kid's on Friday night for our family movie night. It was a pleasure to watch in high definition, and the kid's loved the story line. The kiddo's always find it entertaining when I share something with them that I loved as a child (they still find it funny that mommy was little once too).
The Fox And The Hound II was equally entertaining, and the incredible soundtrack really won the kid's over. It's now joined the ranks of their favorite movie's!
This great new combo pack from Disney offers heartwarming entertainment the entire family can enjoy, at home and on the go.
