* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The novel's been out of print for decades.



* ScienceMarchesOn: Canines like dogs and foxes are not, as it turns out, completely colourblind, only red-green colourblind as compared to the average human.

* GreenEyedMonster: Copper, an aging bloodhound-mix who'd fallen out of his master's favour, absolutely hates Chief, a younger dog who is challenging his role as head dog. He's overjoyed when Chief is [[spoiler: killed prematurely]]. As far as the foxes go, Tod's first mate is outright murderous when it comes to territorial boundaries and other vixens.

The plot of ''Literature/TheFoxAndTheHound'' stars a human-raised red fox named Tod. After Tod causes the death of a hunter's prize hound, Chief, the [[AnimalNemesis hunter pursues Tod in a fit of vengeance]], aided by his aging half-bloodhound Copper. Of ten chapters, Copper gets four as the viewpoint character and Tod six. The novel takes great pains to show both characters' distinctly non-human thought processes - in particular, scent rules their world far more than sight, especially in Copper's case.
