!!Br'er Rabbit

* BarefootCartoonAnimal
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Joel Chandler Harris gives Riley as Br'er Rabbit's real name. A ''very'' few Disney comics mention it now and then.
* RascallyRabbit
* TheTrickster

!!Br'er Bear

* BearsAreBadNews
* BearyFunny
* BrainsAndBrawn: The brawn.
* CatchPhrase: '''''"NOW LOOK!"'''''
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal
* TooDumbToLive: He's pretty much a plot device, both in the movie and the folk tale, to screw with Br'er Fox and his plans.
* VillainousGlutton

!!Br'er Fox

* BarefootCartoonAnimal
* BrainsAndBrawn: The brains.
* CunningLikeAFox
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: By his third appearance, he's smart enough to simply not believe a word Br'er Rabbit says.
* TheHyena
* {{Jerkass}}: And '''how'''.
* {{Keet}}: He sure is full of energy.
* LeanAndMean: No wonder he's so hot on that rabbit's trail; Br'er Rabbit'd be the only square meal Br'er Fox's had in a while!
* MotorMouth: The Disney animation directors actually had to invent a new animation process to keep up with James Baskett's rapid-fire delivery of Br'er Fox's dialogue.
* ObviouslyEvil: Basically the villain of the movie, though Ginny's brothers aren't too far behind.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Generally, stories involving Br'er Rabbit and Br'er Fox end with Fox getting caught in his own trap and dying, which naturally doesn't happen here. Granted, he would always return for the next tale.
* VillainousGlutton

!!Uncle Remus

* AdultsAreUseless: Averted.
* CoolOldGuy
* MagicalNegro
** He could also be a subversion, since in the end he actually DOES step forward and save the day.
* NiceGuy: He's the only character in the movie to not be shown having any real character flaws or being rude to people at any point. Given that the movie was trying promote tolerance, this was probably intentional.
