People often find that forbidden friendships/relationships often turn out to be worth the fight. In the case of two bitter enemies who form an unlikely bond, the fox and hound will do everything they can to remain best friends. I thought the animation was pretty good considering it was the early 1980’s, despite everyone playing stereotype characters. The saddest part had to be when the old lady drops the innocent fox off in the forest. I’ve heard they made a sequel to this, but some classics are better left alone.
