Tod is an orphaned fox who's mother is shot by a hunter not long after leaving him by a fence post. Big Mama sees the action unfold and feels sorry for the little fox, so she finds a way to make a plan. She calls on the help of Dinky and Boomer and they eventually get Widow Tweed to adopt the young orphan.
He befriends a young hound dog named Copper, who is supposed to be his enemy, but they become inseperable. Reality hits hard when Copper is sent off on a hunting trip and is taught to be a true hunting dog. He comes back telling Tod that their friendship can't last any longer due to the fact he's changed.
This makes a hard blow on Tod, but after digesting the news, Chief comes after him. Copper saves him from being killed but by escaping, Chief ends up getting hurt in the process, nearly killing him. This angers Copper and causes him to go hunting after Tod after he is dropped off into the forest by Widow Tweed.
During the hunt, Tod and his new female fox friend Vixey, are able to evade Copper and Amos Slade, but when the two hunters encounter a bear, Tod is split between running away for his life or risking it all to save his old best friend. He goes after the bear and after coming down a waterfall, he's hurt badly. Amos Slade tries to take advantage of this, and Copper returns Tod's favor by standing in front of him and preventing Amos Slade from shooting a bullet.
Their friendship is repaired in the end.

Copper is a hound dog who is brought home by Amos Slade, a hunter. While still in puppy stage, he befriends a fox named Tod, and they become the very best of friends. Reality strikes, though, when he is sent off on a hunting trip with Chief and their master, and he is taught how to be a hunting dog.
Upon arriving home, he reminds Tod of his new status, and Tod seems hurt by the change in their friendship. When Chief sees Tod on their property, Copper saves him from getting killed by Amos Slade. However, when his escape results in Chief almost being killed, he claims revenge on Tod.
After hunting desperately for Tod, Copper is faced against a bear to protect his master, but gets hurt in the process. He finds it hard to stand up to the bear, but Tod comes and saves him. Therefore, in turn, when the bear is gone and Amos Slade tries to take advantage of Tod's injuries, Copper stands in the way to save Tod. Their friendship is repaired.

Chief was Amos Slade's first hunting dog, and is skeptical at first of Copper's arrival. It is obvious during the film that his jealousy courses easy, and he is always trying to impress his owner just to look better than Copper.
He gets injured during a part of the movie, which leads to Amos Slade and Copper wanting revenge, therefore leading to their hunt after Tod.
In the very end, his leg is healed, and his appearences in the second movie aren't many, though he does make some scenes there as well.

Amos Slade is a hunter and the main antogonist in "The Fox & the Hound". Unlike most of Disney's villains, though, he doesn't usually come across as being evil. Instead, he hunts for a living and is very professional at it. He seems to be motivated by revenge, which leads him to hunt down Tod during the course of the movie.
He gets mad easily, and has the potential to hold a grude, but overall he is still considered one of Disney's 'nicest' villains, if not at all.
His two dogs, Copper and Cheif, aid him on his many hunting trips.
Voice actor : Jack Albertson
Willow Tweed is a simple old lady who lived alone until she found Tod upon Big Mama's plan to get her outside. She adopts the orphaned Fox and takes care of him as her own. After they experience a lot of trouble with Amos Slade, she realized she cannot keep Tod forever, and that he also must be wild.
She wants him to be safe from Amos Slade and his dogs, so she sets him free in a game preserve, a place free of hunting, however this still does not stop Amos Slade from entering in.
All is well at the end, though, and she seems to be getting along fine despite having been alone again. The movie's end predicts that she won't be as lonely spending some time with Amos Slade while his foot heals.
Voice actor : Jeanette Nolan

She coordinates a plan to help the orphaned baby fox, Tod, and becomes a big help throughout the film. She advises Tod that being friends with Copper isn't a good idea, and even helps him find Vixey when he's dropped off into the forest.

This old Badger has one difficult personality, especially with whom tries to break his peaceful living inside his den. Tod met him after being left by Widow Tweet as he was seeking repair from the storm and the only place he found was the badger's den. No need to say that Tod's staying was soon interrupted by the Badger, who arrogantly sent Tod outside, rain or not. He is very territorial and told Tod to get away from the forest, since he never lived there and so he had no right to try to steal someone else's home (even if Tod didn't know who was the owner of the den or if there was someone inside).
