A beautiful story about the kind and loving relationship that grows between a little boy and the wise and gentle old plantation story teller. Mixed with a good dollop of Disney magical animation, it's a tragedy to be lost because of an unfortunate setting.
In Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), the characters from this film had five cameo appearance scenes, the most from any single film: Br'er Bear can be seen walking off the Maroon Cartoons studio lot; In the first Toontown sequence, the three Sis Moles pop up from the ground; Afterwards, the Tar Baby can be seen sitting on the back fence; The three hummingbirds say "Hi Eddie" and "Bye Eddie" as Eddie Valiant drives by; and Br'er Bear can be seen in the toon crowd of the final scene.

It's too bad, because the film teachs tolerance among other lessons. Recommended, if you can see it at all.
