Week 9: The Fox and the Hound/ The Adventures of Milo and Otis

The Fox and the Hound (1981)images

Another Disney animated film, The Fox and the Hound is the story of true friendship and how it can always go beyond our differences to the similarities we share at our core. While Tod and Copper become friends at a young age, the truth of whether or not foxes and hounds are “natural enemies” is used to make a statement about prejudice and society’s role in the hatred of one person by another. The film enjoyed financial success when originally released, though critical response was mixed. A sequel was released in 2006 that went straight to DVD, but the original film never fails to tug at our heartstrings.

This is a film that pleases both cat and dog lovers alike. Though it presents us with another unlikely friendship between a cat names Milo and a dog names Otis, the live action aspect makes it fascinating and adorable when the two animals become separated and attempt to find each other once again. The film was originally released in Japan and late had a new narration track added by Dudley Moore for English-speaking audiences.
