However, his visit soon turns painful as he learns that his parents are separating, and his dad returns to Atlanta. Determined to run away, he starts off for Atlanta with all his possessions in a bag. As he starts leaving the plantation, he hears Uncle Remus (James Baskett) telling a group of people stories about Brer Rabbit. He stops to listen, and people start looking for him. Uncle Remus reassures them he knows where the boy is. Then he befriends Johnny and thru his Brer Rabbit stories convinces him to stay at home. Johnny befriends a little girl named Ginny. She gives him a puppy, and her older brothers want to drown it. Uncle Remus once again saves the day with his stories.

The cost was high for this but as a collector it shall remain in my collection,it is watchable but wish I had kept my VHS copy from years ago,
As a side point if we are banning old films when they are un PC why do will still have Scrooge the jewish miser still in our Christmas films I am Jewish and should feel offended but am I? No whatever happened to common sense ?
Advice for anyone wanting to purches this dont think any better quality will be released soon, so sit back and remember when watching such films ment having fun and the corruption or censoreship belonged to violent and horror movies o the days,
I saw this in the Cinema in the 1940's, as a child and loved it. The catchy songs are exceptional from the musical talent of Hollywood.
James Baskett won the Oscar for his portrayal of Uncle Remus, ( Just watch the finale of the film and you can see why ) and nominee Oscar for for the best musical score, and song. This is Disney entertainment at his best.
The Spanish Blu Ray issue , is of good quality, better than the DVD, however, it is not restored, so not for the critical, there are some anomalies, but they don't spoil the viewing.
Thanks to the Spanish issues, they have done many a film that have never been officially issued in the USA.
I put the dvd through handbrake software to take the black bar away then saved to my nas drive along with my other movies.
Perfectly watchable playback, does not appear to be a vhs conversion, much better quality than that. This movie is older than me so it’s not going to look like 4K etc🤪 but I’m more than happy given the alternative of trying to find a 2nd hand vhs version and putting onto dvd yourself.
There seems to be an edit with Brere rabbit and a fire but, the imagination takes over.
Disney would make a fortune with this film, why pander to a few so called woke people who have never watched this film.
By the the way our granddaughters are 9 & 3 and the eldest didn`t have a problem.
