Here we go, one of my favorite Disney sequences growing up! A memorable and dramatic high point in the film, Ron Miller now withstanding. Its a shame the shots of the train are attributed to the music room and not too a particular effects animator, I was really wondering who was responsible. Maybe it was Jack Boyd.

Animation casting continues as before, with Ron Clements getting Tod and Copper's other dialogue sequence (Tod hiding under the wooden slats), as well as, for some reason, a couple of shots of Amos Slade. Ron Husband does most of the scenes of Chief chasing Tod, with a few by Randy Cartwright, mainly on the bridge. Cartwright also animates the section where Copper finds the mostly-dead Chief.

Emily Jiuliano, the last of the four Bluth ladies to appear on the draft, did a single shot of Tod running to Widow Tweed.

It's hard to believe that Ron Clements, who was the supervising animator on that film, was among the newer team that wanted to do the right thing by killing off Chief. I'll bet they even cited Bambi's Mother's death for that but Art Stevens was too afraid to do that. Otherwise, The Fox and the Hound wouldn't have had been a success.
