The politically incorrect characters of Disney's past... Brer Bear was out today and I heard kids comment that they did not know what character he was

I don't think Brer Bear was ever politically incorrect. Now, if Uncle Remus were walking around as a face character, maybe that would be an issue. - JustCantWait  1120.9 #137 4:19PM
Don't get the politically correct reference to Brer Bear but that is sad they don't know where the characters are from. I do though, guess my parents raised me up right in a Disnerd family. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ - Donaldfan_532  235.4 #1433 3:41PM
Never seen that. Where is it? - Disney Fanatic  7.0 #12508 2:34PM
That's sad to hear :( - that-goofy-girl  5.8 #14821 2:56PM
Some adults don't know them either. They just know that these two are from ~that~ ride. - rbeezy  703.0 #238 3:10PM
lol - MrsSchnooks  3009.9 #38 3:17PM
That's disappointing bre'r bear and fox are awesome characters to meet - MaestroGoofy  7.8 #11546 3:38PM
Where is he ???????? - broo  7.7 #11666 4:05PM
this is located at the walk in to splash mountain - Enome  9.4 #10176 4:11PM
Awesome shot!! - Goofy24  174.0 #2231 4:27PM
Brer Fox is my favorite - ChristopherRobin661  269.3 #1080 4:34PM
Wish I could buy the DVD somewhere. Boo! :( - Queenof2princesses  259.6 #1171 4:38PM
There are bootleg copies out there. I was given one as a gift. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  971.2 #3 4:40PM
From Amazon (thru ClassicReels) $20.00 for the DVD :) - DisneyDawn  419.2 #474 7:23PM
The song of the south? If that's what you mean then they have the whole movie on YouTube. I watched it and it was good - Disney Fanatic  7.0 #12508 8:42PM
Yes, The Song of the South. We bought it b/c of the awesome special features that are included on the DVD :) - DisneyDawn  419.2 #474 9:02PM
It's on YouTube? Looks like I know what I'm doing tonight! Haha - lohofosho  784.5 #208 8:46AM
there is a non disney brer rabbit cartoon on netflix. haven't watched it though. - mightymike  272.8 #1042 4:51PM
I recently explained the storyline behind Splash Mountain to a coworker. She's only a few years younger but never knew the story or that it was from Songs of the South - dessertLOVER  151.9 #2572 4:52PM
What I meant by 'politically incorrect' was a reference to the original source for these characters; Uncle Remus Tales, which is profoundly policatlly incorrect today, but I see that you can find original copies of the books on the Internet. Strange that there are 'reissues' which have been rewritten. "... In this four-book series, Julius Lester masterfully retains the flavor of the tales, while dropping the heavy dialect of the Harris originals and adding contemporary language and references-- ensuring that the stories will be understood and enjoyed by new generations of readers..." which I read as 'censorship' of the old black dialect style of the stories. Whatever your views are of these characters or the stories in general, they remain an 'obscure' set of characters in the Disney compliment of characters. - SteveGough  48.8 #4497 7:09AM
love brer bear and fox! cute pic! - OhanaPhoto  3552.9 #30 8:06AM
I watched song of the south on youtube with my daughter before we went so she would know who they were, I gotta say there are def worse movies out there, (hello jango). my daughters fav ride is splash mountain! - lorelaismom  13.5 #8130 8:48AM
yeah we saw the fox and my daughter got excited then questioned meeh who he was i dont remeber his name - delilahsmom  4.1 #21283 9:03AM
I beg to differ. It reflects what was thought to be the mindset of that era. Which yes, is bad. What offended me was his little Velvet Suit with short pants. And that his hair was so shiny. Yeah I'm a knucklehead. - Butterlina  1505.4 #92 9:16AM
Cool picture of a fun statue. - Tealtownfan  974.4 #168 9:18AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unForecast for week of Monday, March 9, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 9am-10pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday-Sunday). DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-10pm (Friday-Sunday). 

Taste Pilots Grill in DCA will reopen as Smokejumpers Grill on March 13 as apart of the new-themed area, Grizzly Air Field. 

Attraction Closures: Critter Country (opens 4/3), Fortuosity Jewelry Shop (opens 3/13), Magic Eye Theater (TBD), Matterhorn (opens 5/16), Peter Pan (opens 5/8), Snow White Grotto (opens 5/1), Starcade (TBD), Soarin over California (opens 5/15), Grizzly River Run (opens 3/20), Luigi's Flying Tires (2016), World of Color (TBD). 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: This week is the unofficial start of the Spring Break crowds, so expect the parks to be a little more crowded than normal. Also with only one showing of Fantasmic during the week, expect FPs for the show to go quickly along with it being crowded around the Rivers of America close to showtime. Throughout the week, expect CIs to be in the high 60s to low 80s for Disneyland Park and in the low 70s to low 80s for DCA. 

Have a great week!

We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  372.0 #557 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6887 11:53PM
