Trivia: Song of the South
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: See Broken Base.
  • Name's the Same: No, this film's Ginny and Remus have nothing to do with the Harry Potter characters.
  • No Export for You: Inverted; practically every country except the United States has given this film a home video release.
  • Old Shame: Disney prefers not talking about this movie too much.
  • Talking to Himself: When Johnny Lee was busy lending his voice to the ad campaign, Baskett filled in for him as Br'er Rabbit in one sequence, opposite himself as Br'er Fox, and did a damn fine job.
  • Type Casting: Why, Mammy! What are you doing here so far from Tara?
  • It's noted on the YMMV page, but Walt Disney pulled a lot of strings to see to it that James Baskett was recognized by the Academy for his performance as Uncle Remus. He received an honorary Oscar, the first black man to win an Oscar of any kind. You can see a picture of him accepting the award at the All-Star Movies Resort at Walt Disney World, on a wall display about various Academy awards Disney films have won.
  • Not one of the actors and actresses from this film is still alive. Not even the kids.
  • Disney's first feature-length film to be primarily live-action.
