Trivia

Owing to the significant and continued controversy surrounding public perception of the film's treatment of slavery (though it is set during during post-Civil War Reconstruction in the 1870s, a period in which new systems of labor emerged to take the place of slavery) and the portrayal of its African American characters, the Disney corporation has been reluctant to reissue the film in the United States, having last been seen legally there in 1986. The studio did make the film available on video in Europe and Asia, and bootleg copies are frequently derived from them. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Uncle Remus: [laughs] Yes, sir. There's other ways of learning about the behind feet of a mule then getting kicked by them. Sure as I'm named Remus. And just cause these your tales about critters like Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox. That don't mean they ain't the same like can happen to folks. So then what can't learn from a tale about critters, just ain't got they ears tuned for listening. Like as not they too busy going along all mixed up with they own troubles.

Politically "banning" this movie makes no sense
29 April 2019 | by robert3750See all my reviews

The black people in this movie aren't depicted as lazy or stupid or criminal. Uncle Remus is depicted as a wise and caring man. It's true that the black people are depicted as subservient, but what movie from this period doesn't portray them as such? It would be historically inaccurate to depict the opposite. Should EVERY movie from this period with black people in it be banned? Disney is run by politically correct buffoons. Ironically, the song Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah. is played at Disneyland. The animation in Technicolor is beautiful. Some of the acting is rather stiff, but it's a warm hearted tale, and the Bre'r Rabbit stories are fun.
