Number 10. – The Fox & The Hound
This is one of those best known stories of friendship and hard decisions we have to make in the future. While I still think the movie should’ve killed off that one dog by the end of the second act in order to make the vengeance be a little convincing, it doesn’t make the movie fall flat. How what does make this entry of Disney’s library weak is that the plot is pretty standard and predictable, but there’s this charm to it. I can’t quite explain, but this film has a unique charm. The animation of course is nicely done, and Todd and Copper are cute little scamps. Their friendship is cute and enjoyable, and even if the story is standard, it does tackle some moderately serious stuff. We have these two characters that desperately want to be friends but are torn apart and ruled by the roles in society that the universe has permanently placed them in, therefore it’s very sad to see Copper seriously hunt Todd down, but very relieving when they protect each other in the end. This film still stands strong with a message to all that true friendship can overcome all differences and obstacles! Perhaps if more children watched this movie they would learn to appreciate each other’s differences!
