The Fox and the Hound

Corrected entry: Copper is chasing a white rabbit and turns into a puppy, then back into a dog, for a brief moment. This was on the DVD.

Correction: There are no continuity issues with Copper within this scene. We are shown three different scenes of Amos Slade's winter trip for the hunting season. In the first scene, early in the trip we see Copper is still a small puppy when Chief rescues him from the snow, and in the third scene Copper is a large fully-grown adolescent who is a trained hunting dog. It's during the second hunting trip scene that Copper chases the white rabbit, and at this point Copper still has puppyish behavior as he's growing into an adolescent.

Corrected entry: We see Boomer the woodpecker peck the end of a tree branch off in an attempt to get the green caterpillar. When the branch falls, Boomer stays in midair for a second, then he falls to the floor. But being a woodpecker, why not just fly from the ground instead of continuing to fall? (00:15:15)

Correction: Seriously? Because that's the whole point. Boomer is a bit of a hokey woodpecker who was taken by surprise and just wasn't thinking.

Continuity mistake: Chief is tied to his kennel around the collar. But when Copper cuddles up to him for the first time, the rope tied to his collar disappears for a shot. (00:10:35)

Trivia: When Todd and Copper are playing hide-and-seek, look at the bush Todd is hiding in and you can see three berries which form a "Hidden Mickey."

Question: If the bear died in the fall, assuming the fall did kill it, then how did Tod survive?

Answer: Since we don't really know how he died, he could have drowned and not died on impact. Bear may not have been a strong swimmer or sustained too much injury from the gunshot to swim to the surface. However, in physics, force = mass * acceleration and thus larger creatures will hit the water with greater force than small creatures (as the old cliche goes; the bigger they are, the harder they fall). So it's possible for Bear to die on impact and not Tod because of his larger size.
