As one of the first three VHS tapes to finally have the Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection logo, The Fox and the Hound was first released on DVD on May 2, 2000, and was discontinued and replaced by the 25th Anniversary Edition in 2006. The first copies were printed in March 2000.


Disney proudly presents its 24th full-length animated film -- hailed as "vintage Disney" by the "Washington Post." This highly acclaimed classic blends vibrant animation and breathtaking action to tell the story of two best friends who didn’t know they were supposed to be enemies.

The fun and adventure begin when a lonely widow adopts an orphaned fox cub named Tod. The mischievous fox soon meets up with Copper, an adorable hound puppy. As the innocent pair grow up together in the forest, they become inseparable friends. But the day soon arrives when their friendship is put to the ultimate test!

"Echoing the dramatic moods and imagery of "Bambi" and "Lady and the Tramp" ("Seattle Times") -- and reflecting such timeless values as love, courage, and respect for life -- "The Fox and the Hound" has captured an honored place among Disney’s most beloved and endearing animated classics.
