The Fox and the Hound 2

Bickerstaff visited the country fair to find some talented performers for the Grand Ole Opry. He was often accompanied by a little girl serving as his chaperone named Olivia Farmer to help him with his quest to find talented performers at the fair. The Singin' Strays hope, with their performance, to impress him and be chosen but, because of Dixie's jealousy since she was replaced by Copper and with Tod's help, the show is ruined and he leaves. Later on, the band tracks him down at a local diner and sings in front of him, thus, getting chosen along with their banjo player, Lyle Snodgrass to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. At the Opry, Bickerstaff enjoys the band's singing until he spots Olivia in the audience and faints on stage.
