The Fox and the Hound coloring pages
After a adolescent red fox is orphaned, an owl named Big Mama arranges for him to be adopted by the Widow Tweed. Tweed calls him Tod, since he reminds her of a toddler. Meanwhile, Tweed’s neighbor, a hunter named Amos Slade, fetches home a young hound puppy called Copper and introduces him to his hunting dog Chief.
Tod and Copper become playmates, and vow to remain “friends forever.” Slade grows frustrated at Copper for constantly wandering off to play, and places him on a leash. While playing with Copper at his house, Tod awakes Chief. Slade and Chief chase him until they are stopped by Tweed. After an argument, Slade says that he intends to kill Tod at his first chance. Hunting season comes and Slade takes his dogs into the wilderness for the interim. Meanwhile, Big Mama explains to Tod that his friendship with Copper cannot carry on, as they are natural enemies, but Tod refuses to believe her.
Months pass, and Tod and Copper reach adulthood. On the night of Copper’s return, Tod sneaks over to meet him. Copper explains that he is a hunting dog now and things are different between them. Chief awakens and alarms Slade, a chase ensues and Copper catches Tod. Copper lets Tod go then diverts Chief and Slade. Chief maintains his pursuit onto a railroad track where he is struck by a high-speed train and wounded. Copper and Slade blame Tod for the accident and swear vengeance. Tweed realizes that her pet is no longer safe with her and leaves him at a game preserve. Big Mama presents him to a female fox named Vixey, then Slade and Copper tresspass into the preserve and hunt the two foxes. The chase climaxes when Slade and Copper inadvertently provoke an attack from a bear. Slade trips and is caught in his own trap and drops his gun just out of reach. Copper battles the bear but is no match for it. Tod battles the bear until they both fall down a waterfall. Copper approaches Tod when he lies in the lake below when Slade appears, ready to fire at the fox. Copper interposes his body in front of Tod, and declines to move away. Slade lowers his gun and leaves with Copper, but not before the two former adversaries share one last smile before parting. At home, Tweed nurses Slade back to health while the dogs rest. Copper, before resting, smiles as he remembers the day when he became friends with Tod. On a hill Vixey joins Tod as he looks down on the homes of Copper and Tweed.
