    Song of the South Brer Rabbit Character Study Drawing (Walt Disney, 1946). Adapted from the Uncle Remis stories by Joel Chandler Harris, Song of the South was Disney's 11th feature film release. It premiered at the Fox Theater in Atlanta on November 12, 1946 and Uncle Remus portrayer James Baskett received a special Academy Award in 1948. This film was a mix of mostly live-action with three animated segments and original animation artwork from it is extraordinarily rare. Presented here is an original character concept drawing of the long-eared protagonist Brer Rabbit. The full-figure image measuring 3" x 4" is sketched in graphite on 12 field 5-peghole paper. It's an ideal pose of a happy Brer Rabbit from Disney's most controversial feature length film. The paper has two fold creases half way between the character image and the left border and the paper displays minor handling. Condition is Very Good
