Like its foxy hero, it is a little too tame. The predatory nature of foxes is glossed over, and the simple story is all too obviously aimed at young children, rather than the whole family. The production values are not as high as on true Disney classics, the script is short on laughs, and the songs aren't up to much either; but small children will be gripped, while parents will find nothing to disturb them.
