In order to help little Johnny deal with his new life on the plantation, Uncle Remus tells him the story of Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear and how Br'er Rabbit ended up back in the Briar patch. "Disney's most notorious film, produced by Walt Disney and released by RKO Radio Pictures; based on the Uncle Remus cycle of stories by Joel Chandler Harris; the live actors provide a sentimental frame story, in which Uncle Remus relates the folk tales of the adventures of Br'er Rabbit and his friends; these anthropomorphic animal characters appear in animation; the hit song from the film was "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah", which won the 1947 Academy Award for Best Song and is frequently used as part of Disney's montage themes, and which has become widely used in popular culture; the film inspired the Disney theme park attraction Splash Mountain; the film has never been released in its entirety on home video in the USA, because of content which Disney executives believe would be construed by some as politically incorrect and racist toward black people, and is thus subject to much rumor. Some portions of this film have been issued on VHS and DVD as part of either compilations or special editions of Disney films; Song of the South was re-released in theatres several times after its original Walt Disney Pictures/RKO Pictures premiere, each time through Buena Vista Pictures: in 1956; in 1972 for Walt Disney's 50th anniversary; in 1973 as the second-half of a double bill with The Aristocats; in 1980 for the 100th anniversary of Harris' classic stories; and in 1986 for the film's own 40th anniversary and in promotion of the upcoming Splash Mountain attraction at three of Disney's theme parks)" OCLC website
