Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this straight-to-DVD sequel made 25 years after the first one is not really a sequel at all. It's a much milder story featuring Tod and Copper, young again, sneaking off to a county fair. Violence is mostly slapstick in nature with a runaway Ferris wheel and cow stampede. The lessons are lighter too, focusing on how to be a good friend and say sorry when you're not.
- Sexual Content
- Dogs rub up against each other and bat their eyes as shows of affection. Amos runs out the door showing his heart boxers.
- A near miss for a puppy and a truck, a cow is hit by a dart and causes a stampede, and another dog crashes into a barrel, but isn't hurt. Hunting guns discharge mistakenly, repeatedly. Amos ends up with a beehive on his head in one slapstick chase, but seems unhurt. A Ferris wheel tears loose from its moorings and careens through a fair, threatening but not hurting anyone.
- "Woman!" "Dang it all," "bad dog," and "blow it out your ear."
- Social Behavior
- Lessons that friends can come from many backgrounds, in remembering what's important -- friends come first, ambitions second -- and forgiveness.
