* AdaptationDisplacement: The tales of Br'er Rabbit which the book on which the movie was written got preserved, were original African-American folktales. With the suppression of ''Song Of The South'', these folk tales (which would have been lost to time) have also been suppressed.
** Though the Br'er Rabbit tales themselves can be found in some older Disney "collection" books, usually ones dealing with "Tales From America".
* BrokenBase: Opinions are split whether it is genuinely offensive or PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad. The film has a cult following, but the cult following is bitterly divided between African Americans who [[IReadItForTheArticles remember it for the folktales]] and one of the first prominent casting of a black man on film, thirtysomething hipsters who want to watch it [[WatchItForTheMeme due to its mix of notoriety and nostalgia]] (sound like anyone you know?), and older White Southerners who fondly recall its "Uncle Tom"-like aspects and RoseTintedNarrative [[UnfortunateImplications of happy blacks]] living in the Old South. This obviously has not given Disney much incentive to re-market the film...
* ChorusOnlySong: [[EarWorm Zip A-Dee Doo-Dah, zip a-dee ay]]... this has even applied to the ride.
* CriticalBacklash: Due to the above debate. Some find the film funny if white-washing, some can't ignore the UnfortunateImplications, and others just find it really boring.
* EarWorm: "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah", "How Do You Do?", "Everybody Has A Laughin' Place", etc. If you haven't seen the movie, these worms may have still found their way in your ear via the [[DisneyThemeParks Splash Mountain]] ride, Disney compilation albums, ''Sing Along Songs'' videos, and (especially in the case of "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah") general pop cultural usage.
* FairForItsDay: And arguably not only fair, but brave. This applied to the cast as well. Walt Disney absolutely ''loved'' how well James Baskett played the part of Uncle Remus. Originally, the actor was only going to voice an animated animal until Disney gave him the lead. To top it off, Disney put a lot of effort into seeing that Baskett got an honorary [[AcademyAward Oscar]] for his performance, making him the first African American man to get any sort of Oscar[[note]] His co-star Hattie [=McDaniel=] (Aunt Tempe) was, of course, the first African American ''woman'' to win an AcademyAward, for Best Supporting Actress for the part of "Mammy" in 1939's ''GoneWithTheWind''[[/note]].
* SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}: When all the farm workers are gathered at the door of the plantation, holding a vigil for Johnny (recently injured by the bull).
* {{Macekre}}: Disney has occasionally circulated a cut-down version featuring only the animated segments; this ''still'' got {{Bowdleri|se}}zed a bit for Splash Mountain in particular, Brer Rabbit is caught in a Beehive rather than a Tar Baby.
* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: A lot of people see the negative reaction toward the movie as this. They using arguments that the blacks here were supposed to be only former slaves who just happen to working on plantation, they can interact with whites without any disgust remark, one of the black's a hero here, and there are alot more potentially offensive movies that didn't get those racist flak.
* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: Seeing Ginny's older brothers get what they deserve.
* OlderThanTheyThink: This movie did '''not''' invent B'rer Rabbit.
* TearJerker: Several...
** When Uncle Remus tells Johnny about the dog, who one could only assume [[spoiler:was drowned, though at the end when the animated characters show up in the real world, the puppy is shown to be just fine, averting WhatHappenedToTheMouse]].
** When Johnny runs to Uncle Remus's cabin only to find that he's gone.
** Seeing Johnny in bed.
* ToyShip: Johnny and Ginny.
%%* UnfortunateImplications: *looks up* *looks down* Any questions?
* ValuesDissonance: The reason this film isn't shown in America anymore.
