The master's just cookin' grits

and fatback. You oughta know that.


That's not what I smell.

I don't know, Chief.

It's something else.

Sonny, you got a lot of learnin' to do

about a-sniffin' and a-smellin'.

Hey, where you goin'?

I want to find out

what that smell is.

OK, Copper, but the master

ain't gonna like you wanderin' off.

I won't get lost, Chief.

I can smell my way back.

Can't tell these young

whippersnappers anything.

What ya smellin'?

I'm on the trail of somethin'.

Trail of what?

I don't know yet.

Why, it's... it's you!

What do you do that for?

We're supposed to do that

when we find what we've been trackin'.

I'm a fox.

My name's Tod.

What's your name, kid?

Mine's Copper. I'm a hound dog.

Gee, I bet you'd be good

playin' hide-and-seek.

Wanna try it, Copper?

Can I use my nose?

Sure. OK.

Now go ahead

and close your eyes and count.

One, two, three...

No, Copper! You can't peek!

- Oh.

- Now start again.

One, two, three, four,

five, six, seven...

My, my. Look at that.

A fox and a hound, playin' together.

# When you're the best of friends

# Having so much fun together

# You're not even aware

you're such a funny pair

# You're the best of friends

# Life's a happy game

# You could clown around forever

# Neither one of you sees

your natural boundaries

# Life's one happy game


Gee, I've gotta go.

# If only the world

wouldn't get in the way

# If only people

would just let you play

# They say you're both being fools

# You're breaking all the rules

# They can't understand

# The magic of your wonderland

# When you're the best of friends


# Sharing all that you discover

# When these moments have passed

Will that friendship last?

# Who can say?

# There's a way

# Oh, I hope
