** * This was the first movie to feature a lot of the animators who would go on to play pivotal roles in the Disney Renaissance movies and the studios that sprang out of them such as Pixar and Creator/DreamWorks, which ironically crushed Bluth in their wake.

* EndOfAnAge: The film stands at an overlap between an old Disney and a new one: it was the last film to have any involvement from Creator/DisneysNineOldMen, the remainder of whom at the time retired during production (apart from Eric Larson, who remained as a trainer and consultant until 1986; he then died in 88), as well as one of the last productions to be handled by Walt Disney's descendants. However, it was also the start of a new era, as the influx of fresh-faced artistic talent (save [[Creator/{{Pixar}} John Lasseter]] and Creator/TimBurton, who's nasty experience of the then in-the-pits studio resulted in their being let go), along with the new management team of Eisner, Katzenberg and Wells, would spend the next decade making the films which eventually became the [[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation Disney Renaissance]].

* TheCastShowoff: Justified as they're a singing group, but playing the Singin' Strays in the midquel gives Reba McEntire, Patrick Swayze, Jim Cummings, and Vicki Lawrence the opportunity to show off their singing skills.

* Speaking of Katzenberg, this was the last Disney Animated Classic released before turmoil at Disney allowed the future Creator/DreamWorksAnimation founder into the studio. The few years after ''Fox and Hound'''s release saw two major projects, ''Film/{{TRON}}'', and ''Literature/SomethingWickedThisWayComes'', bomb due to a dire lack of marketing. When Ron Miller became CEO in 1983, he attempted to revitalize Disney from near-bankruptcy by creating Touchstone, which led to ''Film/{{Splash}}'', and the Disney Channel, but his efforts got thwarted when the shortcomings of Disney boss Card Walker and Roy E. Disney bolting from the studio and launching a shareholder revolt combined with an attempted takeover from raider Saul Steinberg, who was aiming to break up Disney and sell it's individual parts. Steinberg was paid off not to follow through on his threat, but it became the last straw for new shareholder Sid Bass, who now wanted Miller out. He got his wish, and Michael Eisner from Paramount and Frank Wells from Warner Bros. were hired to CEO and COO positions, respectively. Eisner hired Katzenberg right away, and Miller and studio chief Tom Wilhite were forced to resign to let Eisner and Katzenberg into their positions. The massive bombing of ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' the following summer became the final nail in Miller's coffin; he retired to winemaking at the Silverado Winery, and the next time he would be credited on a theatrical release was in the "Special Thanks" section of ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut's'' end credits in 2015.

* CreatorBreakdown: Tim Burton ''literally went insane'' trying and failing to replicate the Disney style. Highlights from his tenure include locking himself in his closet, biting people who came near his desk and wandering the halls after having his wisdom teeth pulled and [[BloodFromTheMouth letting his mouth bleed all over the floor]]. He kicked around the studio doing odd jobs for them until he was fired for "wasting" the studio's money on his live-action short ''Frankenweenie''. [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas They eventually made up, though]].

* ''The Fox And The Hound'' was the final new release in the original [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo Walt Disney]] [[WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics Classics]] video line of animated classics from Disney Animation in 1994 on VHS (the front cover of that video is now the film's ImageSource). Wells's death, the release of ''Disney/TheLionKing'', and Katzenberg ending his relationship with Disney on a sour note much like Bluth did came before the next Disney classic to be released, Walt's original "Timeless Classic" ''SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'', kicked off the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyMasterpieceCollection line. ''The Fox And The Hound'' is also the last Disney Animated Classic to feature the Buena Vista logo; all films after this will start with the Walt Disney Pictures logo no matter what.
* The Classics VHS has two variations. They both start with the 1991 green F.B.I. warnings and then the theatrical trailer for ''Disney/TheLionKing''. On early copies, the program goes straight to the lilac-blue cursive handwriting Feature Presentation bumper after the ''Lion King'' trailer; the other variation adds a home video trailer for ''[[Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar The Return Of Jafar]]'' inbetween the ''Lion King'' trailer and the Feature Presentation bumper. The FP bumper is followed by the distorted version of the 1992 Sorcerer Mickey Walt Disney Classics logo (this is the last tape to have that logo) and then the silent Buena Vista logo before the film's opening scenes and credits.

* DuelingMovies: An unintentional example: the movie was released in the USA the same year when ''Animation/VukTheLittleFox'' was released in Hungary. Both movies star a fox, who is pursued by a hunter and his dogs. Since very little information went through the Iron Curtain about animated films in production, it is unlikely that the creators of either movie heard of the other project.
