Production Notes:

Combined live action and animation. Billed as "Walt Disney's first live-action musical drama."

James Baskett (Uncle Remus) was the first live actor hired by Disney. James Baskett passed away two years after this cartoon is released.

Because Disney believes this film may contain themes, sequences or characters that some people may consider derogatory toward certain ethnic or religious groups- as well as direct pressure from African American advocacy groups- the Walt Disney Studios has been seen to "disown" the film by just ignoring it; Song of the South has not been released on video or DVD in the United States.

However, this film has been released on video in other countries- but not in a format which plays on VCRs in North America. Copies of the video in the PAL format have sold on Internet auction sites at high prices.

Live-Action/2D Animation Hybrid.
