Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby

Let's begin now... I love the movie Song of the South (I have the Japanese laser disc) and the fact that Disney has never officially released the movie on video or DVD and therefore has never really cashed in on SotS merchandise makes finding anything related to the movie all the more fun. The Splash Mountain at Disneyland is a must ride for me on every Disneyland trip. And the song "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah" is one of my all time favorite Disney songs. What we have here is a great Song of the South related Disneyland Record and Book. It is Walt Disney Presents the story of Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby from 1971. You can sing along with the song Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, as well as read along with the story of Brer Fox, Brer Bear and Brer Rabbit, as read by Lois Lane! This version is 363 and has a sticker on the back that says "Walt Disney Music of Canada Limited, 2323 Yonge Street, Toronto Canada".

I had this one as a kid! Such great memories. Splash mountain is one of my favorite rides. I still can't believe the lack of love for this movie. I know it's controversial, but come on people, it's time to relax.
Anyway, great blog, lots of memories.

Glad you are enjoying my blog. I'm having a blast sharing my Disney record collection.

As for Song of the South, I have had a laser disc (from Japan) of the movie for years, and sometimes forget that it has not been released over here. I can't believe they have not released it as part of the Walt Disney Treasures series yet. Check out my post on this over at
