Walt Disney's Uncle Remus Game Zip

game | bagatelle

Atlanta reporter Joel Chandler Harris first published his series of African-American folktales, the Uncle Remus stories, in 1881. While it is true that the stories preserve stories from African-American culture that would otherwise have been lost, current audiences find the stories patronizing and racist towards African-Americans. This was not quite the case in 1946, when Walt Disney produced "Song of the South," a mixed live action and animation film which utilizes some of the Uncle Remus stories. But the film was criticised by some immediately after its release and has been called racist in recent times. Disney never released the whole film to home video. Parker Brothers game makers made a wooden bagatelle game in 1947, themed and licensed for the Disney film. The game carries the name "Zip," a reference to the most famous song from the film, "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah."
