Song of the South

Seven year-old Johnny is excited by what he believes to be a holiday at his grandmother's Georgia plantation. However it becomes apparent that his parent's are separating. Deciding to run away, Johnny encounters Uncle Remus, an elderly black worker, who entrances him with a series of stories about Brer Rabbit, Fox and Bear. These stories are presented wholly as animation, so this is a movie which for the most part alternates between live action and animation, rather than combining the two.
