The hunt for The Fox and the Hound is over. Based on Daniel P. Mannix's book, Disney's 24th animated feature is a bittersweet nature-versus-nurture story about two natural-born enemies who become friends in the innocence of childhood. One is a fox named Tod Mickey Rooney, who is orphaned right after the opening credits. The other is Copper Kurt Russell, a hound dog. "We'll always be friends forever, won't we?" Tod asks amid one of...

The hunt for The Fox and the Hound is over. Based on Daniel P. Mannix's book, Disney's 24th animated feature is a bittersweet nature-versus-nurture story about two natural-born enemies who become friends in the innocence of childhood. One is a fox named Tod Mickey Rooney, who is orphaned right after the opening credits. The other is Copper Kurt Russell, a hound dog. "We'll always be friends forever, won't we?" Tod asks amid one of their idyllic romps in the forest. "Yeah, forever," Copper responds. But, as wise owl Big Mama voiced by Pearl Bailey later cautions Tod, "Forever is a long time, and time has a way of changing things." Before long, the animals are grown, and Copper is following his basic instincts. "I'm a hunting dog now," he tells Tod. When Copper's mentor, Chief Pat Buttram, is injured trying to capture Tod, Copper swears revenge. The next time they meet, it will not be as the "Best of Friends" this film's most enduring song. The Fox and the Hound ushered in a new era for Disney: It was the first to combine veteran animators with a new generation of artists, who do their elders proud. Among those who would later distinguish themselves include John Musker The Little Mermaid and Glen Keane Tarzan, who animated this film's harrowing climax, in which a towering and ferocious grizzly bear attacks Copper and Tod. The distinctive voice cast includes Sandy Duncan as Tod’s love interest, Vixey; Jack Albertson as Copper's irascible and trigger-happy owner no comic bungler, this guy means business in scenes that may disturb younger viewers; Jeanette Nolan as the Widow Tweed, who provides the young Tod with a home before returning him to the forest; and for comic relief, Paul "Tigger" Winchell as Boomer, a woodpecker, who, in the film's running gag, unsuccessfully pursues an elusive caterpillar. The Fox and the Hound may not rank in the pantheon of Disney classics, and it is more leisurely paced than the current crop of computer-animated films. But its simple story of friendship will resonate with young viewers. Unavailable for several years, The Fox and the Hound has been unleashed on DVD in this 25th Anniversary Edition with new extras, including the Oscar-winning Pluto cartoon, "Lend a Paw," the Oscar-nominated animated short, "Lambert the Sheepish Lion," and a featurette about the studio's changing of the guard, "Passing the Baton."

The Fox and the Hound 2 is not a "next generation" sequel like The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea, but more a mid-quel, like Bambi II. The story returns Copper, the hound dog, and Tod, the fox, to the carefree days of their youth, before that whole nature vs. nurture thing threatened their friendship. Copper is being trained to be a hunting dog, but so far, he's only good at getting into trouble. A visit to the county fair reveals his hidden talent: singing! Cash Patrick Swayze, the leader of the Singing Strays, wants Copper to get into the act after the group's lead singer, "diva dog" Trixie Reba McEntire, quits. Will success spoil Copper and end his friendship with Tod on a sour note? Will Tod and Trixie team up to try and break up the act? Disney's produced-for-video sequels to its animation features are by now a genre in themselves. As with its predecessors, The Fox and the Hound 2 is geared toward younger children. There are no towering, crimson-eyed bears to terrorize them as in the first film. Instead, it's a simple story of friendship, told without gratuitous pop-culture references and scant rude humor there's one passing gas joke at the minute mark, and one character has a penchant for belching. The clever animation is a mix of traditional cel and CGI, and the animal characters are loaded with personality in the classic Disney tradition. The country and bluegrass soundtrack, too, is a real treat, with contributions by McEntire and Trisha Yearwood. For High School Musical fans, Lucas "Ryan" Grabeel sings the end-credit song. As far as these Disney sequels go, The Fox and the Hound 2 is the pick of the litter.
