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.
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."
Lessons that friends can come from many backgrounds, in remembering what's important -- friends come first, ambitions second -- and forgiveness.
