    Come on Daddy, ban means to prohibit, way too strong of an expression for this situation. Disney has just, so far, decided that the little bit of revenue that it would get from releasing this film is not worth the possible negative impact. That's a classic business decision. By your definition every book that a publisher no longer prints has been banned.

    It should be considered that outside of the Disney enthusiast community there is not all that much interest in the film and there may not be a great market for the release.

    Did Bill Cosby make a big deal about this movie like he did with the Little Rascals?

    Re: Brer Bear and Brer Fox sighting

    Disney sends many mixed messages about Song of the South. Brer Bear and Brer Fox occasionally pose for pictures in Critter Country. (I just saw Brer Fox in Frontierland in WDW a few days ago) And the entire Splash Mountain is themed to Song of the South...although most people don't realize this, don't care, or don't know what Song of the South is. Brer Bear is even in the Share a Dream Come True Parade in the Magic Kingdom. We need to put politically correctness aside and RELEASE SONG OF THE SOUTH ON A SPECIAL EDITION DVD SOON!!! (Actually, part of the movie is on the Disneyland U.S.A. dvd that Leonard Maltin sponors.)

    Re: Brer Bear and Brer Fox sighting

    I so hope we see a release of Song Of The South on dvd soon. I checked ultimatedisney.com where it is reported to say "60th Anniversary Edition DVD rumored for Fall 2006". If you read a bit more right after that it says, "Rumor debunked March 2006". That means it won't be coming out. :-(((

    And I have never seen Brer Rabbit(the character) at Disneyland. Why not?

    Re: Brer Bear and Brer Fox sighting

    Here are some pictures of the Song of the South characters taken several years ago when they were out and about more than now:

    Brer Bear and Brer Fox together and up to no good, no doubt:


    Brer Brer:


    Brer Fox:


    Brer Rabbit:


    Notice that Brer Rabbit is as far away from the other two as he could get.

    from this past Friday 6-9-06. Seems these two are out just weekends so far (Fri-Sat-Sun), and maybe Brer Rabbit will be joining them later this Summer.

    Re: Brer Bear and Brer Fox sighting

    I saw Brer Bear for the first time at Disneyland in September on Main Street but haven't seen him since. I'm glad to see that they are starting to come around. I have never seen Fox, or Rabbit before (besides in the movie, I own a copy). I'm very excited to visit next time. Can anyone check on a scheadule for when and where they might become regulars? I assume Critter Country Duh, but now I'm confussed with the Small World, and Main Street pictures.

    While in Florida 3 weeks ago I saw Brer Fox and Brer Bear together near the exit of Splash... That was awesome. I was saying to my wife that they should become regulars at DL. Also noticed that Brer Rabbit has his own statue on the Main Street Hub next to Mickey, Minnie and pals. I kinda felt like he was getting alot of attention.

    OH, and Brer Bear was at 3 of the 4 parks. Florida really loves there Splash.

    Re: Brer Bear and Brer Fox sighting

    I have seen Fox and Bear quite a few times. I remember a long time ago that Brer Bear ran up to a kid and completely gave him a bear hug. Very cute. I personally have never seen Brer Rabbit unless it was in Splash Mountain.

    FYI: The whole Bill Cosby vs. Little Rascals thing is an Urban Legend: http://www.snopes.com/radiotv/tv/rascals.htm

    Snopes also has a great page on Song of the South:
