The Fox and the Hound 2

As a hot take, it’s blasphemy that Disney even made a “2” of The Fox and the Hound (in 2006, after the 1981 original). Let alone made it non-canon. (Are we supposed to believe that in the time gap in the original movie between Tod and Copper’s childhood and the ending with the whole bear chase scene that they ran off to join the circus with an acapella dog howl-singing group and are back?)

But ya know what: it’s kinda good. It’s a fun plotline, the music is catchy, and whatever it’s just eminently watchable. What really shines is all the whacky southern sayings. If you say these in an American Southern accent they sound like folk wisdom:

If that ain’t right grits ain’t groceries

Don’t just dance on your new carpet put a hole in it

Slower than an iron toad

Busier than two mice in a cheese jar

As useful as a milk bucket under a bull

Also, the main dog is Patrick Swayze which is something.

Reminds me of a friend of mine’s dad when describing rich people:

That boy rich enough to burn a wet mule

  1. Tinfoil-hat conspiracy theory: Disney bought Marvel and spent decades and billions of dollars building up to the confirmed multiverse just to explain away these discrepancies.
