Song of the South's Tar Baby (1946)

Due to it's unfortunate uses of stereotypes, Walt Disney's 1946 film, Song of the South probably won't be seeing a DVD release anytime soon in North America.
That is a shame because this film boasts great special effects and character animation.
With a total of 3 Brer Rabbit stories, here is the second for your viewing pleasure. Notice the excellent combination of live action and animation when Uncle Remus interacts with the animated forest characters, great stuff.

Yeah, Bob Iger got into full censor monkey mode when he stopped the release of this film last year. Hey, Bob, grow a pair and stick a warning at the front of it before you release it. Even your lawyers would let you do that.

Fun fact: the little white kid listening to that story died of a heroine overdose.
