The Fox and The Hound is Disney's 24th Animated Classic, released back in 1981. The film teaches whoever watches it a lot about friendship and a lot about right and wrong and how friendships can be valued because they can so easily be taken away.
The climactic fight with the bear at the end is pretty realistic, and may be a little too intense for children under the age of 11 years old. The bittersweet finale, where the fox and the hound smile at each other, then go their separate ways, knowing they can never really be friends anymore, is particularly poignant and will probably bring a tear to the eye of anyone who has grown up and lost a friend, but there you go. That's life.
Overall, this film is about a friendship and the bond between two characters who you wouldn't necessarily see being friends, and how that relationship is explored through time to it's climax, it's a very gripping film which invests interest in the audience within moments of it starting. 9/10
