Song of the South is a 1946 Disney film adapted from the series 
of Uncle Remus tales by Joel Chandler Harris. The film is both live-action and 
animation, with the animation sequences frequently shown independently in both 
theaters and on the Disney television program. 

Post-Civil War Georgia 
finds seven-year old Johnny on his grandmother's plantation where he discovers 
Uncle Remus, a wise, elderly black man who regales Johnny with magical tales of 
Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear. Through Uncle Remus' adventurous 
stories, Johnny learns valuable life lessons. 

The film presents an 
America of a vastly different time which created controversy due to the 
portrayals of certain characters. The film has never been re-released since the 
1980s, and continues to spark heated debate as to its' "appropriateness" for the 
21st century. 

The song "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" received an Academy Award for 
Best Song, and actor James Baskett (Uncle Remus) received an honorary Oscar for 
his portrayal.
