"The Fox And The Hound" Is The Most Tragic Disney Film Ever Made
How is this tragedy a kid's movie?
Remember this movie from your childhood?
Look at that poster. Doesn't it look like a fun Disney movie about friendly animals?
Well it's time to WAKE UP SHEEPLE because that poster LIES.
First of all, the VERY FIRST SCENE leaves you in a state of despair when this tiny little baby's mother gets shot.
Then you get tricked into thinking, hey, maybe things aren't so bad! This sweet old lady is going to take care of the baby fox.
And cute, this little puppy is gonna be friends with the fox! It's an adorable movie about finding friendship and family!
WRONG. Instead Disney dishes out a cold, hard plate of reality because it turns out when your friends grow up, they will TURN ON YOU.
And also everyone you love will leave because the old lady ABANDONS THE FOX IN THE WOODS.
The movie tries to briefly smooth things over with some romance, but that's ruined when the dog tries to MURDER the fox and his fox girlfriend.
Then the owner of the dog BURNS THEIR FOX HOME TO THE GROUND.
It's only after the fox saves literally everyone from a giant bear that the dog is like, "I guess I won't let my owner shoot my former best friend."
AND THEN HE JUST WALKS AWAY AND THEY AREN'T EVEN FRIENDS AGAIN.
And just to really punch you in the gut, as the film fades to black, you hear echoey sound bites of the fox and hound promising to be friends forever.
I thought this movie was gonna make me smile at cute animals not tear a gaping hole in my heart???
THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE FRIENDS FOREVER!
We should not be traumatizing the children* with this tragedy!
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME DISNEY. WHYYYY.
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
