* CommonKnowledge: Many people unfortunately remember this as "that one Disney movie about an old black man who finds HappinessInSlavery" -- but the story is set '''after''' the Civil War.

These stories focus solely on the trickster archetype aspects of the character, as well as providing cronies for the Dutch version of the Big Bad Wolf.

* HarsherInHindsight: Uncle Remus has a line about how people wouldn't keep telling these old stories if it didn't mean something to people. After this film went into the Disney vault these stories ''did'' become forgotten.

** Others watch it for James Baskett's portrayal of Uncle Remus, which was the first major role awarded to an African American actor.[[note]]Previous films simply had white people blackface during any large roles[[/note]]

* BileFascination: Subverted in that the film isn't considered to be poorly made as much as it's story's subject are of highly questionable morals, and modern viewers only seem interested in watching it to see if it is, in fact, as racist as they've been told it is.
