The live action and animation sequences were groundbreaking at the time of production and remain as special and exciting as ever. Also, we feel that this film is no more racist than Gone With the Wind or a dozen other classics that are in general release. It is a sweet film filled with loving and caring white and African American characters. It takes place after the Civil War and the slaves have been given their freedom. However, it is very early in this new era and times are hard for everyone, black and white alike, so character depictions are possibly "glamorized" a bit. Former slaves are still learining how to be free. Poor and uneducated they still live and work hard on the plantation for their white owners.
But this is primarily a children's movie and as such it provides good moral examples on all sides. The annimated sequences in particular teach some basic survival techniques as Brer Rabbit tries to survive in a world where predators are around every corner.
