Ever wonder where the characters from the Splash Mountain ride at the Ride/DisneyThemeParks come from? '''''Song of the South''''' is a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1946]] Disney film that incorporated animation and live action. You haven't heard of it? That's understandable; it has never been released in the US outside the theater, and not released ''at all'' since 1986. (This also means the ride is [[AdaptationDisplacement better known than the original film.]])

Set in the DeepSouth after the Civil War, the film features Uncle Remus telling stories of Br'er Rabbit and friends to three kids from his rural cabin. Due to the "impression it gives of an idyllic master-slave relationship" (the film was probably set during Reconstruction, just so that Uncle Remus would not be depicted as a slave -- though he almost certainly ''has been'' one) it will probably never be released in the US. It was available on VHS tape in the UK (where the associated sensitivities are still present, but further from the surface) throughout the '90s and early '00s, and shown as an afternoon family film on TV. It was also aired a few times on TheDisneyChannel during the 1980's. A Japanese laserdisc (with an English track version included as a bonus) was also released years ago, and it's become quite a collector's item in recent years.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBSOD: Br'er Fox has one at the end of the "Tar Baby" sequence: a sickly look on his face after Br'er Rabbit tricked him and hopped off. Br'er Bear silently clubs the fox on the head, knocking him out, then walks off, leaving the fox lying there.
-->'''Remus:''' ''(narrating)'' So now it's Br'er Fox's turn to feel humble-come-tumble. But ol' Br'er Bear, he don't say nothin'. And Br'er Fox, he lay low -- mighty low.

* SmokingIsCool: Uncle Remus shares a pipe with Br'er Frog. This overlaps with FairForItsDay. Back when the film was released, most people smoked, and those who didn't were frowned upon, if not shunned or hated. By showing Uncle Remus smoking on screen, they were attempting to make the audience like him more. More so because it's the only scene in the movie where anyone is seen smoking.
** Br'er Frog blows a smoke ring. Uncle Remus blows a smoke ''square''. How cool is that?!

* BeeAfraid: As part of Br'er Rabbit's "laughing place" scam. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by Br'er Bear when he is the first to fall for this and emerges with the beehive on his nose, saying, "There ain't nothin' in here 'cept bees!"
** In Disneyland, this line cues the log going down a big drop. In Florida, the drop comes right after he says this, and to the left of the log is Br'er Bear caught in a beehive.

Attention Tropers! There are now ads for the DVD running on this very site! It doesn't look legit, so it probably isn't legit.

* ActingForTwo: Not only did James Baskett portray Uncle Remus, he also voiced Br'er Fox. Also, when Johnny Lee, the voice of Br'er Rabbit, was called away to do promotion for the picture, Baskett stepped in to voice Br'er Rabbit for the "Laughing Place" scene. Oh, and Baskett also played a butterfly he was originally auditioned to play.



* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Even sympathetic viewers tend to think that the "Tar Baby" is supposed to be some kind of racial insult. They apparently don't know that the basic folktale not only exists in many cultures around the world, but that it ''originated in Africa''.
