    What is the name of the old Disney cartoon that is now discontinued due to racism? I think it has Uncle Remus in it or something. Thanks!

    Tar Baby (I think)

    It's a story by Uncle Remus about Brer Rabbit outwitting Brer Fox and Brer Bear. Right?

    ETA: I googled Tar Baby - that was the name of the original Story. According to Wikipedia the Disney film was Song of the South.

    Zip a dee doo da!

    I remember that- wasn't it a segment of a bigger movie? Was Song of the South the movie title?

    I guess it was- just looked it up. We always called it the "Zip a dee do da movie"

    When I went to Disney World last spring, I was thumbing through a book in a store about the history of Disney rides. The Splash Mountain ride is the whole Brer Rabbit thing and Disney faced a lot of opposition to the theme of the ride. They had to change "tar baby" to a honey pot because of the former racial slur. God forbid we remember a unique subculture from our past!

    Where I come from, honey pot doesn't always have the nicest conotatations either. Not racial, but the honey pot comes around to clean out privies......
