Afraid of upsetting modern racial sensitivity, Disney has kept its once-popular "Song of the South" under wraps for decades. But Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Fox, Br'er Bear and and the winsome "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" have entertained far too many people for Disney to condemn them to cultural obscurity, too. And, by the way, Disneyland really needed a flume ride, too.... So the company whipped up "Splash Mountain," a delightful musical tour that revives the tunes and characters of "Song of the South" in a thrill ride environment freed from the racial baggage and presumed stereotypes of Uncle Remus' tales.

If you've not seen "Song of the South," here's the story: Br'er Fox is trying to catch Br'er Rabbit, with the help of Br'er Bear. Br'er Rabbit, who lives in the Briar Patch, is a bit of a ne'er-do-well, always looking for his Laughin' Place. One day, Br'er Fox manages to grab Br'er Rabbit, who pleads for his life, begging not to be thrown into the Briar Patch. Brer Fox falls for this bit of reverse psychology, and throws him over the falls into the Briar Patch, where Br'er Rabbit escapes and meets up with all his friends for a colorful finale on Doo-Dah Landing.
