# I hope it never ends

Come on, Copper!

# Cause you're the best of friends #

Copper, you're my very best friend.

And you're mine too, Tod.

And we'll always

be friends forever, won't we?

Yeah, forever.

Hey, let's go swimmin'!

Give me a head start

and I can beat ya!


Dagnabit! That Copper pup's gone

and strayed off again.

Come on, Chief.

If that little rascal's

gonna make me a good huntin' dog,

he's gotta learn to mind.

Copper! Get over here!


Uh-oh. I gotta go home.

Do ya have to?

We're havin' too much fun.

I gotta. He sounds awful mad.

I'll see ya tomorrow!

- And don't forget!

- I won't!

Hey, Copper, what happened to ya?

Why didn't you?

Golly! You're all tied up.

Yeah, and it's no fun either.

The master says I gotta stay home.

Well, we can play around here then.

Oh, no.

Not with old Chief over there.

Is that him making that awful noise?

He keeps me awake at night.

Oh, don't go in there!

He can get awful mean!

He's cranky.

Gee-whillikers, is he ever big.

His ears isn't as big as yours, Copper.

That's not the part

you gotta worry about.

Wow! Look at those teeth.

That's the part

you gotta worry about!

I'm gainin' on him.

- He won't get away now.

- He's wakin' up!

Get out, Tod!

No. He's havin' a dream.

He's chasm' somethin'.

When I get him cornered...

It's... It's... It's a big old badger.

Copper, he's chasin' a badger.

No, no, it ain't a badger.

It's a... It's a f...

it's a fox. A fox?

Run, Tod! Run!


Amos Slade,

you trigger-happy lunatic!

Give me that gun!

My radiator!

Why, you blasted female.

- I'll... I'll...

- Hold it right there!

Watch it! That thing's loaded!

Now it ain't loaded!

Dagnabit, woman! Your thievin' fox

was after my chickens!

Rubbish and poppycock!

I don't believe it.
