Welcome and Rules

Welcome to the group for fans of Brer Rabbit, be it the character from the original folk lore, Song of the South/Splash Mountain, elsewhere, and (especially) just the character in general. :D

Brer Rabbit originates from African folklore, made famous after author Joel Chandler Harris wrote down and published them using his own creation of Uncle Remus to bring the tales to life. In 1946, Walt Disney released the movie Song of the South, further cementing the tales into immortality (not to mention controversy). Today, though many seek to suppress Brer Rabbit, he still can be seen on the Disney Parks ride Splash Mountain, still one of the most popular rides to date. Further testimony that this rabbit can never be brought down. :D

As for me, I'm the self-proclaimed biggest fan of Brer Rabbit in the world. :D No, really. You may think you're a fan, but I guarantee you have nothing on me. ;) It was love at first sight, from the first time I rode Splash Mountain around age 6 or 7. As a child, when other little girls pretended to be princesses, I was imagining I was a rabbit who lived in the south. As I got older, my tastes and interests would change, but I never stopped loving Brer Rabbit. In fact, if anything I grew to love him more as I began to actually understand the humor and symbolism he and his stories deliver.

So if you're a fan, please feel free to join. The rules are pretty straight forward:

-Be respectful of your fellow members.
-All submissions must be no higher than a PG-13 rating. No porn, extreme violence, etc.
-Submissions must be your own work. No screen shots, other author's versions of the stories, etc. may be submitted.
-You are free to submit your own twists to things, however. I, for one, have been planning for some time to write my own ideas of how things went down in the briar patch. ;) Feel free to submit anything of this like your own.
-The group is for all entities related to Brer Rabbit. Love Song of the South? Great. A fan of the Universal direct-to-DVD movie that came a few years ago? No problem! Mainly into the original Joel Chandler Harris publications? That's fine as well. We're equal opportunity Brer Rabbit lovers here. ;)

Not too hard, right? So please join, and start submitting. We'd love to have you! :)
I am pleased (and relieved) to announce that Brer-Rabbit.com is now officially open for business! Please check us out if you are a fan of Brer Rabbit in any way. We are a blog that aims to provide information on all things Brer Rabbit. Please feel free to follow our RSS feed, and our Twitter feed as well.

This is awesome! I use to run a small Brer Rabbit club here on DA, though it was never really active. It's still around though. I passed it onto a friend of mind.

Thanks. :) I've seen that club -- I was a member on a former account. I'm an epic Brer Rabbit fan, though, and couldn't help starting my own when the groups thing formed. :) This one is also going to be an off-shoot of a site I'm working on, Brer-Rabbit.com. Hence the Twitter feed, heh.

Thank you for joining! :D

Sweet! Song of the South is one of my favorite Disney movies. I was lucky enough to get a chance to see it about 15 years ago. My old art teacher just happened to have an old VHS copy of the movie. It's such a lovely film and so many people are so unaware of its existence.

I look forward to seeing your site. Have you ever heard of this site? [link] I go there quite a bit. It's like the ultimate haven for all fans of the movie and all this Brer Rabbit. It's incredibly thorough.

Yeah, it's sad how much Disney has tried to hide its existence. I wish they would release it. I just keep hope up that there will be a release sometime in my lifetime. It's the epitome of Disney magic for me. It's sad to me how many see it as racist, though in all honesty I can see where they're coming from to an extent. I'm lucky in that my father traveled over seas for his work in the 90's, and found a legitimate VHS copy for me.

I absolutely have heard of SongoftheSouth.net. :) Christian gave me a lot of support during an earlier incarnation of my site several years ago. He's done a great job with it.

Would it be alright if I featured some of your work in a fan art gallery on my site?
