Br'er Bear

Bre'er Bear

Br'er Bear is one of the main characters in the extremely controversial 1946 Walt Disney film 'Song of the South.' He can also be seen in the films 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse' and 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' In television shows he could be seen in 'House of Mouse,' 'The Mouse Factory,' and the 'Walt Disney Anthology Series.' He can be found in the video game Kinect Disneyland Adventures. Finally in other merchandise he can be found in Disney art, pins, clothing, books, and toys.

He lives on Chickapin Hill and his friends include Br'er Fox and the rest of the Disney villains. His enemies include Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Gator, and the rest of the good Disney characters. Even though he is considered a villain, Br'er Bear can also be the hero at times.

Brer Bear

Br'er Bear is a very large Grizzly Bear with a black nose and he has about 4 different colors of fur (brown, gray, black, and cream). He has a very simple outfit which is a blue shirt and a red hat. He also is always seen carrying a large club around. He isn't too bright, but can be a hot head even though he is quite lazy.

He was animated by Eric Larson and Ollie Johnston. He has been found by a few people over the years such as James Avery and Nicodemus Stewart.

Song of the South Meet and Greet

Br'er Bear can be found in Disney parks around the world as a Meet and Greet character. He can also be found in SpectroMagic, Fantasmic, Splash Mountain, Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade, Mickey Mouse Revue, and he could also be found in Mickey's Jammin Jungle Parade, and Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade until they closed recently. I also remember seeing in a select Disney on Ice shows. Disney needs to finally release 'Song of the South' on dvd, I highly doubt they ever will but it would be great to see.
