Uncle Remus by Joel Chandler Harris & Walt Disney Studios (1520-) 1st Sunday October 14, 1945 - The classic stories of the Briar ("Brer") Patch by Joel Chandler Harris came to life in Disney's feature film "Song of the South".  Even in 1945 Disney would never turn down the opportunity to cross-advertise a venture through different mediums, thus the sunday feature Uncle Remus was created.   The Briar Patch is full of characters, but the main interaction is between the energetic Brer Rabbit and his antagonists Brer Fox & Brer Bear.  Together they meander through weekly episodes of mild humor with a little continuity mixed in.  The feature was quite poular and lasted about 20 years.    During this time, the movie that spawned the strip was allowed to fade to relative obscurity, largely due to misconceptions regarding it's social correctness.   A revival occurred when Disney Imagineers invented the fabulous "Splash Mountain" ride at it's theme parks.   This has re-introduced these marvelous characters to a new generation of eager readers.  This is part of the reason why the market for Uncle Remus strips is quite good.   Offered exclusively as Halves or smaller, collectors look for runs where available.
