* ''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 (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.

--> '''Tim Burton''': I worked for a great animator, Creator/Glenn Keane. He was nice, he was really good to me, he's a really strong animator and he helped me. But he also tortured me because I got all the cute fox scenes to draw, and I couldn't draw all those four-legged Disney foxes. I just couldn't do it. I couldn't even fake the Disney style. Mine looked like road kills... imagine drawing a cute fox with Sandy Duncan's voice for three years. It's not something that you can relate to very much.

* 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 Nine Old Men, the remainder of whom at the time retired during production, 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) would spend the next decade making the films which eventually became the [[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation Disney Renaissance]].

* CreatorBacklash: Several notable animators, including [[Creator/{{Pixar}} John Lasseter]], Creator/DonBluth and Creator/TimBurton, rarely speak kindly of this film, citing its tight-budgeted animation, which all but did away with the innovative technology the company had invented, as the final sign that Disney had become a [[{{Flanderization}} shell of its former self]]. Bluth, in particular, took it the hardest by leading a walk-out of several other animators who followed him to work on ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH'' during this film's production, beginning a long and bitter rivalry between him and the studio which went on until Bluth retired in 2000.

* CreatorBreakdown: Tim Burton, in particular, ''literally went insane'' trying to replicate the Disney style. Highlights from his tenure include locking himself in his closet, biting people who came near his desk and ''[[TheToothHurts pulling out his wisdom teeth]]'', then running through the halls of the studio as [[BloodFromTheMouth blood gushed from his mouth]]. He pulled the plug on his job at Disney after this movie, becoming a freelance director for Warner starting with ''Film/PeeWeesBigAdventure'', and didn't attempt animation again until the ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' cartoon, and only worked with Disney again a [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas decade]] later.
--> '''Tim Burton''': I worked for a great animator, Glen Keane. He was nice, he was really good to me, he's a really strong animator and he helped me. But he also tortured me because I got all the cute fox scenes to draw, and I couldn't draw all those four-legged Disney foxes. I just couldn't do it. I couldn't even fake the Disney style.
