The Fox And The Hound

This Disney film features a host of voice talents familiar from other movies made by this studio. Just for fun, see if you can figure out where you have heard that voice before.

Chief the Dog (Pat Buttram) plays the voices of the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood, and the Possum Park Emcee in A Goofy Movie.

The voice Boomer (aka Paul Winchell) may be best known as Tigger, who bounces his way through The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

The porcupine (John Fielder) will also be well known to Winnie the Pooh fans, as he plays Piglet (check him out in Piglet’s Big Movie). As well, Fielder can be heard in The Emperor’s New Groove (as the Old Man who gets tossed off the balcony), and seen as police officer Howie Clemmings in The Shaggy D.A.

Kurt Russell, who lends his vocal cords to the adult Tod, is better known for his live action work. He can be seen in the role of a father in Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story and Sky High, or (in his younger years) as a teenaged whiz kid in The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes.
