The Fox and the Hound

The fox and the hound is one of the sweetest movies I have ever seen. I loved this movie when I was a kid. I remember it always being one of my favorite Disney movies.

The two grow up together as best friends. Little do they know, they are actuallyThe movie is about a baby fox that gets found and rescued by a woman. The woman raises the fox as her pet, and names him Tod. Tod soon meets his neighbor Copper, a puppy basset hound. supposed to be enemies, because Copper is a hunting dog, and Tod is his kind of prey.

As the two grow older, they start to realize the tensions between the two of them. The movie is sad because the friendship gets torn apart when Copper is forced to hunt Tod. Tod is taken to a place game preserve, and eventually when Copper is hunting he finds Tod. He is going to get him, but they realize that friendship is strongest in the end, and he lets him go.

This relates a lot to the time period of the 80's due to racial tensions and other types of things.

I love this movie, even though it is a cartoon, it is one for all ages. It is so cute, but it also has a really meaningful message, that friendship is what’s really important, and that we should be able to see past our differences and be friends with all kinds of people.
