YMMV: The Fox and the Hound

  • Adaptation Displacement: Wait... There's a book?
  • Moral Event Horizon: Amos Slade comes dangerously close to crossing it when he attempts to shoot Tod after he saved their lives, but manages to avoid it when Copper convinces him that he's not their enemy and that he saved their lives.
  • Narm: Silly, empty-headed woman! Complete with a make up song.
  • Sequelitis: About the only two things that save the country western-infested sequel are the Cool Old Lady and Dixie, the latter voiced by Reba McEntire.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: For people who think that Chief should have been Killed Off for Real to make Copper's anger more justified and overall have made the latter half of the movie a lot darker. Apparently, Disney was going to, but decided against it because they thought it'd be too dark.
  • The Woobie: Tod - his mother is killed when he's only a baby, he gets chased and shot at by Chief and Slade, respectively (twice!), his best friend disowns him and wants him dead, his owner drops him off in a wildlife preserve for his own safety leaving him without survival skills and a friend in the world, and on top of it all, his neighbor (the badger) is a complete Jerk Ass to him. Things get a lot better after he meets Vixey, though...then worse...then better.
    • The widow as well - it's made very clear that Tod is her only source of companionship, and that it's just as heartbreaking for her as it is for him, if not more so, when she has to Shoo the Dog to protect him.
