* 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, 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.
* ''The Fox And The Hound'' was the final new release in the original ''[[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo Walt Disney Classics]]'' video line of animated classics from Disney Animation in 1994. Wells's death, the release of ''The Lion King'', and Katzenberg ending his relationship with Disney on a sour note came before the next Disney classic to be released, Walt's original "Timeless Classic" ''SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'', kicked off the ''Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection'' 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.

* 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]] (it doesn't help that Bluth had bolted from the studio a few years earlier for this belief, which angered the old guard at the time; [[note]] the relationship did NOT get better after the management shift since he began competing against Disney directly, only after ''Titan A.E.'' killed his career two decades later did Disney finally drop the subject. [[/note]] Lasseter had attempted to push computer animation, which got him fired, but the people who did the firing got "fired" themselves when Eisner, Wells, and Katzenberg got into Walt Disney Productions the following year.)

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: It's pretty hard to come across a copy of the book, which has been out of print for decades. If you want to buy one be prepared to spare $200 to $300.



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

* 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 ''[[WesternAnimation/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.

Added DiffLines:

--> '''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. 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.

** 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.
