"The Fox And The Hound" Is The Most Tragic Disney Film Ever Made

How is this tragedy a kid's movie?

Posted on

Remember this movie from your childhood?

Disney

Look at that poster. Doesn't it look like a fun Disney movie about friendly animals?

Disney

Well it's time to WAKE UP SHEEPLE because that poster LIES.

Disney

First of all, the VERY FIRST SCENE leaves you in a state of despair when this tiny little baby's mother gets shot.

Disney: "Death is inevitable and the people who love you will leave you."

Disney: "Death is inevitable and the people who love you will leave you."

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.

Disney

And cute, this little puppy is gonna be friends with the fox! It's an adorable movie about finding friendship and family!

Disney

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.

Disney

And also everyone you love will leave because the old lady ABANDONS THE FOX IN THE WOODS.

What the hell is this Disney???

What the hell is this Disney???

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.

Disney

Then the owner of the dog BURNS THEIR FOX HOME TO THE GROUND.

Shit keeps getting worse???

Shit keeps getting worse???

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."

Disney

AND THEN HE JUST WALKS AWAY AND THEY AREN'T EVEN FRIENDS AGAIN.

Disney

?????????????

WHAT IS THIS BULLSHIT???

WHAT IS THIS BULLSHIT???

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.

Disney

How about no???

I thought this movie was gonna make me smile at cute animals not tear a gaping hole in my heart???

Disney

THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE FRIENDS FOREVER!

Disney

This is RUDE.

We should not be traumatizing the children* with this tragedy!
