Not Disney's Best HD Transfer Aug. 6 2011
By Tyson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Fox and the Hound has always been a favorite of mine. The characters are great, the story is heartwarming to say the least. After buying a slew of the latest Disney Blu Ray releases (Beauty and the Beast, Fantasia, Bambi, etc) I was expecting another state-of-the-art fantastic 1080p transfer. Unfortunately, the Mouse House has not taken this title as seriously as some of the others in its vault. Instead of giving us a glorious, painstakingly perfect restoration, it would seem they opted for tossing in the insulting "sequel" Fox and the Hound II to make up for the slacking effort.

Now I won't say it looks awful. This Blu Ray is clearly a significant upgrade from the DVD, but it is also obviously missing the Disney touch I've come to expect. For example, at the bottom right hand corner of the picture you will see an occasional black line flicker in and out. Ordinarily Disney has gone in and removed these kind of print damages, through intense digital editing or by some other miraculous effort. It is not the case for Fox and the Hound. The black line is hardly noticeable, but once you notice it you can't stop looking at it. It flickers in and out as it pleases, subtle at times, obnoxious at others. A few instances it went all the way from the bottom of the picture to the top. Nothing extreme for casual movie watchers, but for those of us who are really picky about picture presentation it can be unbearable.

Colors weren't really consistent either. At times they were bright and vivid, at others they were dingy and dark. Blacks are overwhelming in the wrong spots, turning shadows and shading into eclipses. Unlike the animated Alice in Wonderland, which is bright and perky, even once the forests of Wonderland get dark, Fox and the Hound looks just a little too dark even in bright sunny scenes.

My overall opinion is that, while I'm glad to have an HD release of Fox and the Hound in my collection, this is not the Blu Ray I had dreamed of. Personally I'm a little annoyed that the nasty sequel wasn't destroyed or forgotten about, much less released right alongside the classic, and I'm really disappointed that Disney didn't spend as much time as they usually do on the transfer. For most Disney fans I doubt it'll be too much of a problem, since, like I said, 1080p certainly beats the DVD, but for those of us who are film geeks and get frustrated by imperfections, I would suggest waiting another 5 years in hopes another re-release will give this great movie the attention it deserves.

30 years young and this?? Aug. 13 2011
By Coby Winters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I feel short of neutral about the Fox and the Hound movie itself. But that doesn't mean I'm not upset about Disney's HD transfer. It is quite clear that it didn't get the same remastering treatment as the other Disney classics. I guess because it's not as popular, Disney thought that they didn't need to spend as much time into restoring it. Well, that's just silly. If you're a fan of the film, demand that Disney rerelease it as a stand-alone title with a new remaster.

The Fox and the Hound: Underrated Disney Classic comes to good but not great blu Dec 17 2011
By EliOskar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I always held a special place in my heart for this film. Its adorable characters were too much to take, and it was a great tale of friendship. It's sad how Disney chooses not to acknowledge this film much. What does it get? A stuffed animal in the Disney Store? Not even a mug, or pens. Just, recently, plush toys. It isn't like many Disney films. If you are a die hard fan of recent Disney, Disney Renaissance, and the classics, then you may not find it....to your liking. The film has some magic from Classic Disney, but, as it was in the odd years of Disney, it has that feel of a transgression for the studio.

Disney brings this wonderful film to blu ray, and, as i said, Disney doesn't acknowledge the film too much. Maybe that's why is didn't get a pristine conversion, but a good one. The colors are vibrant, lines visibly drawn, but there are problems. One problem that is most easily noticed is the fact that in certain shots, the drawn lines appear blurred. Now, i don't know if this was a mistake in conversion, or if the film itself is plagued with those problems indefinitely, but they are there....and they are noticeable. The most pointed "issue" is a line that appears far, far right on the picture. Trust me, unless you aren't paying attention to the movie, you should barely notice this. it comes, goes, but it's barely seen if you don't look.

Beside these issues, the blu ray conversion is good. Do I feel this is the best this film can look? Probably not. But this is what we have, what Disney gave us...either get it or hope for a better conversion.

Now, I did not bother to watch the cheapquel. I know I won't like it, so I see no point. I wish Disney had given us the choice whether we wanted to buy it, but, alas, they didn't. Hopefully, in a later re-release they will spare us. The fact that it's name is on the cover does bother me, but the happiness that I own the original is stronger than the hate.

If you are a fan, buy it; if not, maybe wait....not sure.

Happy, Sad, Disney classic. March 8 2014
By @home with four kiddos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Classic Disney. I loved this as a child and I am glad to share this with my children today. They also liked it. Not every film has to be fluffy and happy at the end. I think this was an excellent movie about true friendship and how things do change in life, but somethings never change.
The film looks better then ever.

THE BEST THIS FILM HAS EVER LOOKED ON HOME VIDEO, BUT THE BLU RAY IS INCONSISTENT! LACKERLUSTER DISNEY RELEASE! Nov. 26 2013
By DR SHOCK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Disney Studios 24th full length animated feature film. The Fox and the Hound is another decent entry in the Disney animated film cannon with some familiar voice work and great animation. the new Xerography process while being a cost saving achievement did not make these newer films better in my opinion, in fact they just don't have the Disney luster we've all become accustomed to.

While this isn't Disney at it's best it is an enjoyable and pretty solid film. The animation process has been fleshed out more and the new process isn't as jarring as it seemed in Sword and the Stone but not quite as polished as it is in Jungle Book. The artwork is beautiful in the film, but it is a totally different style. The rougher lines on the drawings being exposed just comes across like their unpolished. This process worked well with this film, Jungle Book, Winnie the Pooh and 101 Dalmatians though, but after ending the traditional process with the fabulous looking Sleeping Beauty, (yes one scene used this process.. a sort of trial) these films looks very 2 dimensional and just don't seem to have the same magical look to them.

OK, now about the film and video releases. I have owned both DVD releases and the new Blu Ray and all have their good points and bad points. the first release and second editions were released in full screen so it is nice to see the film presented on the new Blu Ray is 1:66:1 which is a step in the right direction. The film feels cramped at times (not sure if 1:75:1 was the original theatrical ratio, but is what is stated in the original press book?) and once again the Blu Ray while an improvement, it shows signs of what I think are cell related issues. The films looks great in some shots and in other scenes appears soft and out of focus, then back to clear and beautiful a few frames later. I don't know if I can lay all the blame on Disney this time, but it is clear this film and many other are not receiving the same treatment films like Snow White did. It's understandable though, it wasn't hugely popular in theaters and Disney by this time was all about profit. Also, this film may not have been cared for like the early classics. Who knows how these lesser know, less successful films were stored? I don't know this film well enough to know how it should look, but this could be the problem with some scenes looking out of focus and why some dark scenes and the blacks seem to have no detail.. Still overall it looks very good and it is better than the previous releases.

The direct to video sequel The Fox and the Hound 2, I'll start off by stating that I am not a collector of these direct to video sequels, so I'm not the best judge of it, I am generally not impressed with any of them and The Fox and the Hound 2 is no exception. I would rather have some quality extras and a better restoration than this sequel, but it does look great on Blu Ray.

It would be nice if Disney would include multiple formats on the newer releases as the extras are thin and there is room for them. It would also let buyers have more options for playback. The restoration looks decent, but because of the style of animation and the Xerography process the rough lines seem a little too rough for my taste in some areas, although not nearly as prominent in this film. I prefer the earlier films over the films from 1961-1981. These films seem to be missing some of Walt's magic.

If you must own Disney's The Fox and the Hound, is the Blu Ray is the way to go?...probably, but there should have been more care taken to make the film more consistent and the extras are embarrassingly bad, no stills gallery again!( only on Gold edition) and not even a making of for the film! For a studio who prides themselves as pioneers in animation and the best animation at that, you would think they would put some effort into the bonus material even if it isn't there greatest achievement. The addition of the direct to video sequel is a plus for those who want it, but I would rather have had the extra care and even a short making of for the original film in place of it. They should also have included multiple formats on the films from 1961 to 1986 because there are those films seem to have been shown in multiple formats in theaters, there is room for them on the disc so why not give fans what they complain about time and time again.
