delightful adaptation
10 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this film at the bottom of the bargain bin at Walmart. The fact there was an adaptation of the Uncle Remus stories starting Wayne Brady and Wanda Sykes meant it had to be interesting at the very least. I was expecting it to be quite terrible in a laughable kind of way.

However, it is a very well animated film with a talented voice cast. The character designs were wonderful and the overall art direction was well developed. The score was excellent but the songs were on the verge of unbearably cheesy, if not unnecessary.

Only complaints were that some of the jokes and gags missed the mark a little in a tired hackneyed way. But those moments were short lived. Also, there wasn't enough Wayne and Wanda!

The Uncle Remus stories are a paradoxical dilemma for American audiences. This adaptation removes the social stigmas of Post-Civil War themes but preserves important folk stories of African-American heritage, exposing these tales to a generation that might have otherwise missed this experience.
