Disneyland's America on Parade- 1976 [Part 3]

Looks like some characters got patriotic outfits, some did not. Check out Brer Fox long before Splash Mountain was built. Think the children knew who he was??

Brer Fox....Of course kids knew who he was....After all Bear Country was still Bear Country. And I do have memories of seeing at least the animated portions of Song of the South broadcast one The Wonderful World of Disney. I don't believe the entire film was broadcast...but I also knew who Uncle Remus maybe? I was elementary school age at this time..and remember seeing Brer Fox, Brer Rabbit & Brer Bear at Disneyland and very much knowing who they were.

Yes, me too. I remember going to SEE Song of the South in re-release sometime in the 70's, so the animated characters were well represented during this time. The Disney company was not at all the PC machine it is today back then. They were proud of their heritage and library and regularly brought out all of the classic work and held it up as worthy. Of course, WWII was only 30 years in the past as well, so what now seems ancient history was still pretty contemporary then. The parents had all experienced that era as their childhood, so they weren't afraid of educating their kids in where they came from. Same with Disney. While the 70's were a kind of floundering era at Disney Studios, the parks took full advantage of the characters they had to show off and did so in every parade.
