The concept of this story could have worked as a dialogue-free Fantasia piece, but Disney's attempt to mold it into a "family movie" spoils whatever credibility it might have had. Tod (short for toddler) is a newly-orphaned baby Fox adopted by Big Mama, who lives out in the wilderness. He soon meets his neighbor Copper, a bloodhound owned by a cantankerous old codger who mistreats and kills animals for fun. Tod and Copper are supposed to hate each other, not as much as I hated suffering through this.
There are some lovely forest backdrops and occasional atmosphere in its favor, though this ranks close to the very bottom of Disney's animated movies. Why on Earth was 147-year-old Mickey Rooney cast as the voice of Tod? Who in their right mind thought that this was a good idea? Kurt Russell also has very recognizable vocal chords but casting him as Copper simply doesn't work. The score by Buddy Baker (who?) is obnoxious, loud, intrusive, and does the film no favors. Several character concepts are obviously Shanghaied straight from Winnie the Pooh. Strange to think that this is the first Disney movie to utilize CGI animation though, if only very briefly.
I just didn't feel that there was much at stake to give a damn about any of this. The Fox and the Hound really is one of Disney's laziest "efforts". As I said, a Fantasia segment that sticks close to Daniel Mannix's novel or even a Silly Symphonies short would have been better than this tedious bore. I can't believe it took EIGHT writers to adapt this into such a weak screenplay. Most certainly the kind of movie you watch on a grey Sunday afternoon in February.
The Blu-ray is in 1.66:1 1080p with DTS HD-MA sound. There are zero extra features, probably because no one alive could possibly have anything interesting to say about the film.
Hier leider nur zwei Sterne. Die Lieferung ging schnell und zuverlässig, jedoch waren die DVD's nur notdürftig verschweißt, was generell nicht schlimm ist, jedoch war diese DVD sehr zerkratzt und hatte lauter Fettfinger auf der Oberfläche. Sie läuft glücklicherweise, sodass ich sie trotz dessen behalten werde.
I'm happy with the DVD, it works and is authentic, good seller. My problem is with Amazon, PLEASE stop putting Barcode Stickers or any other kind of stickers on the DVD packaging I ordered this like new or new and these stickers leave ugly sticky marks on the packaging it's not acceptable.
At least use higher quality stickers that don't leave marks on the cases don't be cheapskates!!
There were scratches all over the DVD and the cover was in awful condition. There were bite marks and scratches all over the cover. The DVD did come on regular scheduled time however it's condition was awful! Not what was portrayed when ordering this DVD online.
I mistakenly ordered this "Fox and the Hound" movie not knowing it was a VHS not a DVD. It is a baby shower gift for my daughter and the process for returning it is close to impossible to do. Wish there was an easier way- it will make me think twice about ordering things in the future unless I am very, very certain that I will not have to return it.
