Song of the South (1946)


After his family moves in with his grandmother down south and the leaving of his father, a young boy named Johnny finds happiness from an old but kind storyteller named Uncle Remus. Uncle Remus, knowing that the boy loves stories, regales him of the stories of Br’er Rabbit and Br’er Fox. These stories teach the boy moral lessons and the true essence of happiness. Although it’s very politically incorrect and shows the ideal perfect relationship between slaves and slaveowners, it’s still a very warm and lighthearted story for children. I enjoyed it, I laughed at it and I loved the animation. As the old saying goes, ignorance is bliss especially whenit comes to kids.
