Song of the South is a movie produced by Walt Disney. It was released on November 12, 1946, by RKO Radio Pictures. It is based on the Uncle Remus stories written by Joel Chandler Harris.[1]

Song of the South has never been fully released on home video in the USA[3] because of content which some people could see as racism towards black people and is thus subject to rumors.
